    Datto SIRIS

    Datto is a fantastic option for smaller businesses who don't have as large of a budget. It might work well for larger businesses as well, but the features are not exactly on par with more prevalent backup solutions. So, that should be kept in mind while determining a good fit for a company. But if selling a backup solution is met with push back, this can be a great option to give a good working backup solution. It offers the main features solutions should have, so it's definitely not a compromise. Just keep in mind the features it does not offer.

    Rubrik

    It's a way faster and reliable backup software we have implemented till now. Lots of cloud backup are been initiated with the help of Rubrik. Certainly, we have certainly improved our timeframe for backup. Also, it is very consistent and the restoration of the backup is also very efficient and viable.

    Pros

    Datto SIRIS

    • Simple agent setup for new machines to be protected. A new machine can be setup on the server in under a minute whether it be a Linux or Windows based machine.
    • Local virtualization on the Datto is quick to start up. After a physical problem with a server I had the machine locally virtualized on the Datto before users had a chance to report service issues to me.
    • Nothing to do on my end to get backups shifted to offsite data center. Schedules are setup for each machine or group of machines and I sleep well knowing all our backups are safely stored offsite.

    Rubrik

    • Validates all backups against ransomware during and after backups are performed.
    • Is seamless in backing up data whether on prem or in the Cloud.
    • Support engineers are extremely knowledgeable and useful in providing guidance.
    • Integrates will with native Oracle and SQL backup processes.
    David Newaj | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Datto SIRIS

    • Initial backup sync: The downside to the cloud backup is that, if you have a lot of data, you need an external hard drive to seed to the cloud. And you usually have to request this after you've already got everything else working.
    • Unsyncing: We have pretty decent bandwidth, but with 8TB of data, we'd get syncing issues with the cloud servers every 3 months or so. The only way to address it was to request another external drive and resync it, but that also meant losing the older data.
    • Availability and support: Datto only operates through MSPs and VARs, and will not help you directly without putting in a ticket with your provider. This causes delays, and extra epenses, and if you grow beyond the need for an MSP, you have to keep them around for at least that piece.

    Rubrik

    • Anything Rubrik is missing can be developed with their open API.
    • It would be nicer if Rubrik had better networking options out of the box for machines being restored to a location other than their normal location.
    • Better node reporting or performance, we have had a few nodes need to be rebooted.

    We have been very satisficed with Rubrik over the years that we have been using the product. We have seen a few minor issues with some of the upgrades that have been applied, but overall the product works and is easy to use. Our SQL DBA's love the product to manage their SQL server backups because the restores are fast and can be done at the database level.

    Usability is great. The web interface is simple and easy to use. While various options are available for client backups, it is very easy to re-use settings of the existing client, so adding new clients is a very fast process. Configuration of the agent on the client-side cannot be easier as well. Datto dashboard provides an overview of the client status, and email notifications can be configured for various events.

    Rubrik has a simple to use interface and day to day management is very simple yet it doesn't sacrifice flexibility. Expanding capacity as data grows is very easy and does not require downtime. Upgrading is simple and efficient. Setup and configuration are straight forward.

    My specific example or reason for this rating goes back to a need for support after a client on this platform has a fire. In a nutshell, Datto had no idea how to BMR the image back to the server correctly, and as a result, the RAID on the server was lost, due to the Datto BDR environment not being able to see the RAID card, and the support technician knowing how to inject drivers.

    Rubrik support is hands down some of the best product support we have. They know their product and are quick to assist. Submitting support cases is easier and they are very responsive. You don't have to use Rubrik support often but when you do they have your back.

    From experience the implementation was smooth and easy, like a simple plug and play format but would need coordination from your network team to be able to see the entire IT infrastructure.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datto SIRIS

    Datto seemed to be better than other vendors I trialed, and I inherited an Alto device, so it was easy to stay with them. I also assumed the backups had been working with the previous contractor, but it turns out they had been failing for months and no one knew it.
    Jon Daley | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Rubrik

    Rubrik was the easiest to install and configure for our environment. The all in one solution has built in safeguards, so if part of the system fails you are not left without a backup solution. The system is robust and easy to upgrade or increase in size. The system requires very little day to day attention and integrates with ServiceNow.

    Very easy to add new 'briks' (or nodes as everyone else calls them :P) as long as the network is plugged in and configured, the briks will discuss among themselves and welcome the new comer into the cluster

    Return on Investment

    Datto SIRIS

    • We've saved some money by consolidating backups offsite to the one appliance and letting it store backups in one location offsite, rather than trying to maintain several different platforms or connections.
    • Negatively, since the appliance doesn't expand in storage, we've got sunk costs into this unit and will have to move to something else to continue growing. I work in healthcare and we can't just purge charts and stop backing up information, I've got to expand my ability to back up that information.

    Rubrik

    • This solution was comparable in price to other solutions we examined and offered features not available from some other leading backup providers.
    • This has increased the speed with which I can restore files and especially entire virtual machines (literally seconds to spin up a restore instead of often over an hour with Avamar) so less downtime for customers who need help.
    • While (thankfully) we haven't had to use it, this also offers ransomware detection and protection.
    • Single Sign-On integration allows us to use our existing 2FA to increase security.
