Published

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Rubrik are both Data Backup Solutions built to archive and restore business data. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is designed to preserve data in Microsoft Office applications and is marketed as data loss prevention software. It is most popular with mid-sized businesses, though it is also used by small and mid-sized businesses due to the popularity of Microsoft Office Software. Rubrik is most popular with mid-sized to large enterprises, and is marketed as a data center backup solution.

Features

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Rubrik aboth provide data protection features, but since Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is a data loss prevention software and Rubrik is a data center backup solution, there are some differences that set them apart from each other.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is specialized for protecting data created in Microsoft applications.  For businesses looking to secure Microsoft Office data and prevent data loss, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is extremely efficient.  Additionally, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 offers a simple to use, streamlined user interface.  Most users will not need significant training to start using Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 to protect their data.

Rubrik is a data center backup solution, meaning it allows businesses to backup their database infrastructure rather than preventing data loss from specific software families. Rubrik is also vendor agnostic, meaning it can support most data types and databases and will fit into most existing IT infrastructures without issue as a result.

Limitations

Though Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Rubrik both help businesses protect their data, they also have a few limitations that are important to consider.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 includes highly specialized features for Microsoft software, but it isn’t as versatile as Rubrik.  Businesses that need to backup data from a wide variety of applications may prefer Rubrik, or at least one of Veeam’s more generalist data protection solutions.

Rubrik can support highly varied IT infrastructures, but it isn’t as focused as Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.  As a result, businesses looking primarily to protect data from Microsoft software may overlook Rubrik in favor of a more specialized solution.  Additionally, Rubrik’s interface isn’t as simple to use as Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, so businesses should expect users to need some training with Rubrik to achieve maximum efficiency.

Pricing

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 starts at $1.50 per month per user for a one-year subscription, though it is discounted slightly for three and five-year subscriptions. 

Rubrik doesn’t provide public pricing information, but interested businesses can reach out to the vendor for a quote.

Rubrik, Inc
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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is especially well-suited to smaller, less complex O365 tenants where you wish to take a full backup of your entire tenant for backup purposes. Conversely, if you have a dynamic tenant with daily adds & deletes of Teams/Sharepoint Sites with only a subset being backed up would require daily editing of the entire backup job which would get cumbersome.

  • My CFO seemed to have lost a whole year of important emails. I simply restored them to his mailbox in a matter of minutes.
  • An employee left the company but an issue came up with a quote this person sent out. I could search his mailbox and got the quote as well as all communications from that customer.
  • It is nice to be able to search emails in various mailboxes without disturbing the user.
  • It is also nice to go back in time. Say they deleted those emails last month I can go back years if needed.

Cons
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.

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 isn't 'multi geo' aware - this means we have to manually select resources to back up depending on their geo-location.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 doesn't backup Private Channels users create in a Team - there are workarounds for this but it would be nice if this just worked.

It fulfils all of the requirements my company has for a backup solution, and personally I find it the most suitable product I've ever used for backing up mailboxes, due to the ease of restoring items

Usability
Rubrik, Inc
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.

Once you connect to your org and specify your retention policy, the majority of the work is already done. Creating your backup job and customizing it is extremely straightforward. Between selecting which objects to backup (if not the entire org), any object exclusions, etc. Updates are easily applied and have not caused any issues or headaches as of yet.

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.

Veeam Support is the best support in the business, this is for all their products. All interactions are with highly skilled support people who know their product and also the platform the product runs on. So when the issue is not really a Veeam issue but is more related to the Windows Server or SQL Server they will still provide solutions on how to mitigate the issue. This is a very refreshing approach...

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.

Would have marked a 10 but the storage in AWS was very complicated. Would be nice to have more help/guidance connecting to external 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

I love how I safely backup all my organization data, Office 365 documents from Microsoft Exchange online, SharePoint Online, it seems to work well with on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployments. I also like how easy to connect to 0365 and start running the backup effectively. The UI is great and user friendly. Phenomenal Support Team.

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
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.

  • We retained a client who didn't want to rely on local backups for their tax retention
  • Our tax retention records are also backup to AWS, so there's that
  • We are certain that our clients are fully protected against ransomware or in case of mailbox removal by accident
