NetApp SnapMirror is a no-brainer when it comes to retaining an offsite backup for disaster recovery purposes. The backbone of the product is the Snapshot technology built into NetApp technology. In my experience, the Snapshot/SnapMirror software has been flawless and very dependable. The only piece that I can see adding in the future is potentially connecting SnapMirror to the cloud as an additional backup destination.

The speed of restoring data and simplicity to kick that off is hands down the best. The intuitive nature of the system to recognize a missing VM and to auto flag it as a relic to reduce log clutter and distractions. I honestly don't look at it often due to the stability of the system.
Where its less suited would be the full feature set is only for VMware, with the recent approval from Nutanix as a partner there have been a lot of growth adding function for AHV VMs. Custom reporting doesn't seem to be as feature rich as other processes along with the YARA rules coding for threat hunting.

  • 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.

Very well versed and a good product to deal with downtime to recover from the failure is pretty good. Also, NetApp's engagement on Incident calls is very professional and humble. I would give a 100% rating to this product as I have been working on this for the past 5 years. It is stable, fast and highly reliable

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.

Support Rating
NetApp
NetApp support has always been great. With the NetApp Auto-support system/web portal, the visibility into your NetApp storage is incredible. There have been times when I've been contacted by them for an issue that I haven't even discovered yet. For example, I received a call 20 minutes after a drive failed in our filer. I hadn't checked my email at that time and therefore didn't see the alert.

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
NetApp
Over the years we have transitioned to NetApp SnapMirror for all our storage needs. However, due to the short life cycle of support, it is cost prohibitive to maintain after support is ended. The main reason we have liked NetApp SnapMirror due to the many options and standardized management capabilities and flexible options for provisioning and setup of storage.

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

the only downside with a hardware+software all in one solution is having to pay for more licensing if you need more disk space instead of just adding space. other than that it's great

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
NetApp
  • NetApp SnapMirror has allowed us to recover critical data in a timely manner on multiple occasions.
  • We have been able to decrease our RPO objectives.
  • We have been able to decrease our DR costs as well.

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.
