What do you think of Rubrik?

Excellent company to work with as they have strong pre-sales and engineering knowledge. Their support is always available and their response times are quick. The product is as good as advertised and totally changes the way enterprise businesses do data protection. Pros:  Easy implementation whether using their physical appliance or Edge VMs that can be deployed at smaller sites. It works with VMware and Hyper-V without agent installation. If you have physical servers or non-supported hypervisors (looking at you OVM), you can install the Rubrik Backup Service and create filesets and SLA to backup your data. Cons: With multiple Rubrik clusters setup in an environment, it becomes painfully obvious that this product needs a central management console. With no single pane of…

What needs improvement?

Since my last report we now have physical support for Linux and Windows. Hyper-V is coming very soon. We are confident by the end of 2017 that Rubrik won't have any gaps in their support matrix compared to their competition.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It converges backup and DR into one product so is good value for money. If you need to pay for this on a monthly model then this is achievable through Assured Data Protection.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Asigra. Old tech, dated code, poor with virtual environments. Zerto, great product for DR but only works on virtual and you can't keep history (journal) for long.
