File share backup is less rich in terms of restore features, but the basic functions are supported. It have all you need to plan backup jobs. Backup and restore of virtual machines is the strongest function of Nakivo. When backing up to Amazon S3, keep in mind that you will be taxed also based on the I/O you make and this will be more prominent cost with Nakivo.

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

Nakivo Inc.

  • Frequent backups do not affect the server load especially when the store is based on a high-performance NAS. We use OMV and average a GB per Minute per backup.
  • Offsite backups to a hosted store on AWS or Wsabi is simple.
  • VM replication is simple to set up.
  • Backup compression and encryption is excellent.

Rubrik, Inc

  • 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.

Cons

Nakivo Inc.

  • Backups have the option of "screenshot verification". Screenshot verification doesn't always work for us when our vmtools is out of date. If we are on an older version of VMware and that version of vmtools is up to date, NAKIVO still thinks it is out of date.

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.

    Because it is a product that I have been using for many years, it is becoming easier to use, and it also includes more and more things that you might need.

    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

    Nakivo Inc.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication is very easy to set up. I did it by myself, and it went perfectly. Online documents are very well written, and also the tech support asked to help me set it up. I want to do it by myself and the setup process is very easy to do. The connection to your VM and servers is very easy to do.

    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.

    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.

    Implementation Rating

    Nakivo Inc.

    It is very easy to do in all the formats in which it is implemented, whether as an appliance, in a windows machine, or an implementation in NAS. I only use the appliance one, but I have tried all of them in trial mode to know which one interested me more.

    Rubrik, Inc

    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

    Nakivo Inc.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers most of the features of the great products and the ones most used by all backup administrators at a very competitive price. For this reason, it is not necessary to make large outlays to be able to maintain a backup with a high level of security. It is quick to implement and very simple to use.

    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

    Of course, you always think that something could be a bit cheaper. But NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers real value for its price and value that lasts. We greatly appreciate that you are still able to actually BUY the software instead of being forced into subscription services. After all, it is OUR data and it should remain that.

    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

    Nakivo Inc.

    • One of our contributors has permanently deleted worksheets from our file server. From Nakivo, we were able to recover all the data in less than 10 minutes.
    • An authentication server was encrypted by ransomware, through NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we recover the entire server within 1 hour.

    Rubrik, Inc

    • 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.
