Rubrik

Rubrik is an enterprise backup and recovery system. While it can be used anywhere, the price point may be tough for small entities. The Ransomware detection feature and the immutability of backups built into the platform are definitely an added plus that can be leveraged to enhance the cybersecurity of an organization.

Pros

Rubrik

  • Extremely fast restores of both file data and entire VMs via snapshots
  • Incredible user-friendly interface that has what I found to be a low learning curve
  • Easy to set up replication between sites for DR purposes
  • Fantastic support when I have issues - time to initial contact is very low and resolution is almost always very quick
  • Global search feature makes finding things very quick

Cons

Rubrik

  • 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

  • Additional fail-over functionality

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.

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

Rubrik

Rubrik was the easiest to install and configure for our environment. The all in one solution has built in safeguards, so if part of the system fails you are not left without a backup solution. The system is robust and easy to upgrade or increase in size. The system requires very little day to day attention and integrates with ServiceNow.

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

Rubrik

  • The ability to deliver strong business continuity has been worth FAR more than we paid for the solution. Our previous backup system was undersized and underperforming, and RTO for a full outage was measured in weeks. Currently we can bring up core production within a few hours, and that is with a series of huge file servers - we expect to see that time drop as we break the servers out
  • Having 365 and Azure backed up through Polaris has saved us from what would have been embarrassing client-facing issues when emails were lost or deleted.
  • We are so much more confident in our systems that we are able to make system changes rapidly to keep pace with the company, knowing that we can always just take a quick backup and revert if needed. We are even using the Rubrik cluster to transition workloads between otherwise incompatible vCenter deployments, allowing us to seamlessly replace whole clusters with no downtime.
