Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

Rubrik, Inc

Rubrik is our primary backup service. We use it to back up most of the data on our servers, as well as O365(mainly mailboxes). We find it easy to use, training was provided by Rubrik and they were very well made. Rubrik's customer support is great and has always answered our questions in a timely manner. There's still some room for improvement regarding the storage reports, but I think that it's the best tool on the market for our use case.

Pros

N-able

  • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
  • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

Rubrik, Inc

  • Support engineers are extremely knowledgeable and useful in providing guidance.
  • Integrates will with native Oracle and SQL backup processes.

Cons

N-able

  • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
  • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
  • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
  • Option to recovery security key.

Rubrik, Inc

  • 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.

      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.

      We have an Italian support partner, they are been very good b7y the first moment.
      All the partners are followed with a lot of attention, even the little ones.
      there is a site where you can learn everything, the single parts of the product are described perfectly.
      Every it specialist should evaluate it.

      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.

      Cove is able to cover all aspects of backup in a single package. From the same dashboard I can check servers, workstations, and even Office 365. Cove is a much better solution in terms of overall management for a company such as ours. It also provides integration options with N-Able's RMM and Take Control solutions. This allows us to offer our customers with a full service suite in a single package.

      Rubrik has smaller footprint of hardware compared to the competition and ease of operations. The software is a bit more stable and allows the scaling of the infra in a much easier way and manage. The polaris tool / reporting module is very easy for management to look at the statistics and get the meat of the information from the overall operations

      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

      N-able

      • There has been NO negative impact to out ROI, but it definitely helps our bottom line. Affordable pricing and solid support make Solarwinds Backup almost a no brainer. That interprets to a growing ROI.
      • The best thing to happen to our ROI is the growth brought in by very happy clients.

      • 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.
