Rubrik Initial Setup

Matthew Gill
Senior Network System Engineer at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
In terms of deployment of the solution, it was vendor-aided. Rubrik helped through our SEs. If I had to guess, it would probably be less than half-a-dozen people who were a big part of the deployment, data center access and data center deployment notwithstanding. Some people had to go and plug and rack things. We aren't interested in lagging behind as far as updates go. We're pretty good about updating to the latest version. The only reason we haven't done so right now is because it's in use. We continue to use it and the organization I work for is big. There are a lot of teams using it. So it's hard finding the time in the day where we can disconnect everything, upgrade the system, and then reconnect everything. That's on our side where we're trying to juggle all the teams that are making use of the product. View full review »

The initial setup was really straightforward. From start to finish, from unboxing the product to setting it up, took us about half-a-day, through to getting our first full backup completed. The deployment itself only took about two hours and then, within three to four hours, we already had the first full backup. Our original strategy was for testing purposes with a few file servers, but it has become a system that replaced our production system. View full review »

Initial Setup was simple. I think the box took longer to mount in the rack than it did to setup. View full review »

The initial setup is very straightforward. We have installed three Rubrik devices so far. The setup took only two to three hours at each site. We were immediately able to start backing up after the initial setup. View full review »
