CloudRanger

If you're using AWS to run your Virtual Workloads, CloudRanger is one of the easiest ways to backup and protect those resources. If you're using cloud-native stacks like Lambda, Containers, or Serverless workloads, CloudRanger may not be a good fit since it solely exists in the EC2 space. Even if you're looking for a tool to schedule servers powering on and off to save on compute cost, CloudRanger does a fantastic job.

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

CloudRanger

  • Automate taking EBS Snapshots on any schedule and managing the life cycle of those snapshots so they don't accumulate over time.
  • Automate starting/stopping of EC2 instances on any schedule.

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  • Simplified backup to cloud makes replacing outdated backup targets, such as tape libraries, an easy task.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

CloudRanger

  • I would love to see something for RDS environments. We only have a few, but there is no support for them.
  • Being able to share backup AMI's with other accounts would be fantastic. We could take backups of QA\Dev and share those images to our Prod account.
Tyler Cook | 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.

Their support is top notch. I've only had to open a few tickets that were mostly just a Q and A session. But their support has proactivaly reached out and suggested that we update our CloudFormation template to get the latest software features. I usually get a response within an hour after opening a non-critical ticket.

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.

Alternatives Considered

CloudRanger

The alternative to CloudRanger is really developing something in-house. Automating starting/stopping EC2 instances and managing EBS snapshots can easily be accomplished with AWS' extensive API, but if you're not interested in spending the time to do these things on your own, CloudRanger provides a secure, easy to use, and cost-effective solution for these tasks.

Rubrik

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

CloudRanger

  • Reduced implementation and maintenance time significantly by providing a turnkey solution that's ready to use upon logging in.
Juan Palma | 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
