Highlights

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. 

Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

As we have a large amount of data transmitted via mail, teams, and drive on a daily basis backing it up quickly and efficiently is very important for us. Therefore, Veeam [Backup for Microsoft Office 365] has helped us achieve this by their super convenient platform. It allows for great data recovery and performs at a very high level of efficiency.

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

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • It is easy to configure as it has the same look and feel of Veeam Backup and Replication.
  • It is very granular with the ability [to] enable the options that we need.
  • The support team has been easy to work with. Their deep knowledge of the product and good communication skills allows them to effectively answer our questions in a timely manner.
Phillip DeLee | TrustRadius Reviewer

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
Jordan Watson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • It is still early for us to tell what Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 needs to improve. We just adopted O365 and are still in the process of migrating. Once we are on the Cloud, we should have more insight on pros and cons

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.

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

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is a simple to deploy, easy-to-use, and user and admin-friendly tool. We can schedule the backup and it's easy to restore it. Also, this is not just for email backup. With Veeam you can even take backup of other MS services like Teams, SharePoint, and other tools that are bundled with Microsoft O365 service.

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.

The Veeam support is the best. I never had to raise any issues yet, but I found all the answers in the Veeam forums and the people in forums were able to answer any queries we had without any issues. And the kB articles are well structured and easy to read, which makes our issue resolution that much faster.

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.

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.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

We chose Veeam over Active Sync because we could trust that Veeam was going to run every day and email a report if it failed or succeeded. Active Backup notoriously did not run for some reason or another and we would have to check on it to even see that it did not run

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.
Adam Stadnick | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

  • Replacing our Baracuda solution with Veeam saved us over 60% in backup costs even with purchasing backup server hardware
  • This is a software solution only so the type of hardware, storage solution and cloud storage costs will change the cost of the overall solution
  • We prefer the ability to purchase and scale our own hardware over being vendor locked in an appliance
