Chose Rubrik
It is the Cadillac of backup solutions and is well regarded in the industry
Chose Rubrik
Networker is really heavy in terms of learning, though it also offers a lot of features and has advantages where no good network connection is available (compression, before sending the data, Rubrik globally dedups) and Networker still offfers tape support. But we decided to …
Chose Rubrik
There is no comparison, Rubrik worked right out of the box and even has support for IBM DB2 databases. Patches and upgrades have been performed without any issues. Database backups are run using default settings without any noticeable impact on the databases/servers and …
Chose Rubrik
Used to have Backupify for 365 backups which was utterly unreliable, it would fail to back up without any warnings/errors. Polaris has a neat dashboard that shows you if there are any problems. Backup times with Backupify were quite long as well, Polaris only takes 5-10 minutes …
Chose Rubrik
At the time we became customer (in 2017), Rubrik was the only one supporting Nutanix AHV and the only one proposing SLA-style protection of objects. What we still love about Rubrik against veeam is the fact that Rubrik is coming as a full turnkey solution with storage included …
Chose Rubrik
The biggest thing that Rubrik gave us over using Veeam is the secure appliances. We don't have to have another server to manage that simply runs the backup software, we have a managed appliance with a single update interface. Veeam backup and restore works just as well, but …
Chose Rubrik
Vast improvement. We used UltraBac for about 15 years. This service was very outdated. It had no dashboard and would send emails about the backups that were done overnight. We would get an email that a server was partially backed up or there were errors, then we would have to …
Chose Rubrik
The licensing and scalability were definite factors. We like that Rubrik can grow with buying as many or as little nodes that we need. We also like that not everything has to be stored on brick. It can be tiered off to deep and cheap cloud storage. Overall we like that it …
Chose Rubrik
Rubrik is a more straightforward product to implement and manage. We mainly went with Rubrik for security reasons like ransomware protection and immutable database.
Chose Rubrik
We selected Rubrik due to the greater support it has for our Hyperconverged platform, Namely, Nutanix AHV. Both the sales pitch and initial support was more rounded than Cohesity and inspired more confidence in the product, Rubrik were able to demo everything we were planning …
Chose Rubrik
Selected Rubrik due to API driven, modern easy to use interface and appliances in a scale out architecture with a secure file system protecting backup data
Chose Rubrik
We looked at Cohesity and it could've been a contender had we not already gotten in bed with Rubrik. They seemed to have the same answers to our old problems as Rubrik with a simple platform. While nice, they were not providing anything extra or even close to make us consider …
Chose Rubrik
Rubrik was the simplest, cheapest and most feature-filled.
Chose Rubrik
Rubrik do better on all the core feature of the backup domain
Chose Rubrik
Rubrik crushed Avamar in a side-by-side comparison. Out of the box, Rubrik was up and running quicker, absorbing backups faster and integrating with VMware much better than Avamar. We had faults with Avamar backing up SQL servers that did not happen with Rubrik. Overall, …
Chose Rubrik
Levels of intelligence can’t compare - one is a legacy thought process; the other modern.
Chose Rubrik
Veeam was our previous backup option. The downside of Veeam compared to Rubrik is Veeam live inside the VM which is prone to hackers if they got access to VM. Rubrik has its own appliance and MFA is mandatory for Rubrik so that's the main reason we moved over to Rubrik.
Chose Rubrik
Rubrik was more robust and seemed to excel during restores and quick mounts. Rubrik also had a larger library of features and capabilities.
Chose Rubrik
Was over 5 years ago when we made the comparison but LOVED that Rubrik was a software and hardware solution with no finger pointing. Solution met all needs and was a turnkey product. Has been easy to maintain and grow over the years.
Chose Rubrik
I can't knock on Druva other than that their cost was higher than Rubrik, which is why we ultimately went with Rubrik. Veeam was too complicated for a simpleton like myself, and the feature set of Rubrik was exactly what we needed.
Chose Rubrik
Having all our backups under one umbrella made product management easier, with not need to manage myltip contracts.

Rubrik, Inc
Rubrik is still a relatively new product when compared to other solutions which tackle total data protection. The feature set is quite broad but still needs some refinements. Most of the User Interface is quite straightforward and easy, but some areas are a bit lacking in a description of what the option is used for, or the option is missing. While making the user experience easy, many tunables aren’t present and require a Support Tunnel to be open for a Support person to make a change in the customer’s environment. Seems the first question Support always asks is if you can open a tunnel for them to remote in. Then you’re not able to monitor exactly what they’re doing.

Cons
Rubrik, Inc
  • Automated test restores. I would love to setup automated and random test restores on a regular basis where Rubrik's system will restore a random file or directory to a test SharePoint folder, send a full report, and provide a path to the folder for review and confirmation.

The support has been incredible. Any time we have had a question, it has always been answered within 24hrs. Also, the team is always will to hop on a Zoom call to help walk us through the dashboard and troubleshoot any issues we are having. Also, having the peace of mind that our data is protected should anything happen in our system.

Rubrik support has been pretty good. There have been a few issues with new releases we have experienced and are still considering if we want to make the jump to version nine. There are a few things we are concerned about which are giving us pause. That being said, support is working hard to answer our questions.

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.

We are fine with the 1 year or 3 year support options that Rubrik has had. The support for the on-prem hardware has been great too. We've had them for quite a while (4+ years) and no end of support yet.
