Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued)

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued) is well suited for a larger organization where there are multiple departments and many users. It could be particularly useful for such an org as it can reduce the time spent on server issues, troubleshooting requirements, etc.
It is not a great use for (like it was for us) small firms or single departments with their own budget. Although the service is excellent, it can get expensive.

Rubrik

It is by far the easiest and well thought out backup solution I've encountered. If you have requirements to archive into AWS, Azure, or GCP, it is extremely easy to configure. You will be up and archiving in minutes. The SLA based job scheduling is very intuitive. The only negative or less appropriate usage I can think of would be the instantiation piece. It takes several hours to instantiate one VM to a cloud environment. This could be our lack of bandwidth, but it is only feasible for a long term DR scenario.

Pros

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued)

  • Support - Phone support was particularly helpful.
  • The people we dealt with were subject matter experts.

Rubrik

  • Simplified backup. Rubrik integrates well with modern data-center technologies. Rubrik backups are SLA-based, and you can apply SLAs to different levels of your infrastructure, e.g. from granular VM-based assignments to covering whole site with few clicks.
  • Simplified restore. Easy to use interface allows for delegation of restores to any user group.
  • Simplified backup to cloud makes replacing outdated backup targets, such as tape libraries, an easy task.
  • Simplified DR to cloud. In addition to the ability to mount restored virtual machines from the Rubrik appliances itself, Rubrik allows you to spin up backed up to the cloud instances in Azure cloud.

Cons

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued)

  • The cost
  • It was not a good long term option because of the costs.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rubrik

  • I would like to have the ability to set expiration dates for relics. When VMs are deleted, the backups (relics) require manual intervention to remove, and I may not want them removed right away.
  • Integration of multiple clusters into a single dashboard.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of SLA retentions.

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.

I have had nothing but great service from Rubrik's support. The support tunnel option is great as they can connect without the need for WebEx or JoinMe to work on your cluster. They are always willing to perform upgrades even though upgrading is super easy for the customer, but some would prefer support to do them.

Veeam is the closest to Rubrik but still cannot compare in its simplicity and success rates. The others just don't even compare, heck you have to have a PHD just to use CommVault

Return on Investment

Dell Cloud Manager (Discontinued)

  • It did not meet our budget requirements in the long term.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Rubrik

  • Increasing of service's request: old customers asked us backup service after they realized we were using Rubrik
  • New customers, came because of Rubrik, asked for new services
  • Old customers already using previous backup solution decided to leave the service since more expensive
  • Overall, ROI is positive
