Rubrik - Don't Back up, Go Forward!

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
We use Rubrik as our primary backup solution for physical, virtual and database backups at both our corporate headquarters and remote offices. We are a multi-industry company and use it across our organization. It gives us fast and reliable backups with easy integration into our VMware environment and archive capabilities to the cloud.
  • Virtual machine backups are extremely easy to setup. The recovery (instant mount) process is a better option than doing a traditional restore of a server.
  • SQL database backups and recovery are very nice. Our DBA's love the SQL DB mount option to quickly recover data.
  • The ability to change the retention on a pre-existing backup that is different than the current SLA is a feature that has not yet made it to Rubrik. This is one option I would like to see sooner than later.
  • Having to utilize Fileset backups in order to restore to an alternate server is a hassle. Basically you have to make two backups of the server if you want full protection. It will be nice with this function is built into VM level backups so you only need one backup.
Rubrik really shines if you have a virtual environment. Though Rubrik can backup physical servers the Mount and Instant Recovery options are only available for a virtual machine. Rubrik is also a great tool for utilizing the Cloud with easy integration into almost all major providers. The CloudOn capability is particularly cool. It can convert the virtual machine to the proper cloud format.

Rubrik is used as our Enterprise Data Protection platform to backup and recovery all of our servers at two primary data centers. We have Rubrik "briks" at each site and they replicate Tier 1 servers backups cross-site. Older backup data is archived to the cloud via Rubrik as well.
  • Easy to administer.
  • Easy to install and configure.
  • Great support!
  • Software upgrades occasionally overwrite existing settings.
  • It is a relatively expensive solution.
  • Backing up millions of small files on CIFS shares is not as efficient as other backup products.
Rubrik is a very good enterprise data protection platform. It provides both the software and storage needed to perform backups and recovery across our company. It takes away the need for separate master-slave servers needed in legacy backup solutions like TSM, Netbackups, etc. I'm not sure if it would be a cost-effective solution for smaller businesses, which may be able to get away with native backup tools or a pure SaaS-based solution. Rubrik is good at backing up SQL Server natively.

The enhanced backup tool you were looking for

We have been using Rubrik for a few years now and it has been a very positive experience. Primarily it has helped us move away from our aging tape backup system and allowed us much more visibility and clarity on our backup strategy here at the university. We use it to capture the following workloads that cover data from all over the university and managed by central IT: Vmware virtual machines, NAS file shares, HyperV virtual machines, Nutanix virtual machines and huge quantities of Microsoft SQL.
  • Live Mounting SQL for OBDC checks and for restores of tables.
  • The single pane of glass and a single point of management and visibility was a huge win for us - as we moved away from a legacy tape backup solution. Rubrik modernized the whole approach and bought the simplicity to the backup model that we certainly needed!
  • There is now a vast selection of objects that Rubrik can backup - it fitted our needs perfectly for all our workloads.
  • Error reporting can be hard to interpret and chase out.
These things often come down to price - so do consider your business case and allow Rubrik to assist in their widest form. Its by no means "just" a backup tool anymore. However if your workloads are small and you are simply backing up a few TB in total Rubrik may be overkill for your needs.

Our previous disk to disk backups had become so slow that we could no longer rely on the. Use needed something that was cost-effective, worked with our virtual environment and had DR options. Rubrik had the answers we needed for all of those and my team loves it.
  • Speedy disk to disk backups.
  • Excellent disaster recovery options.
  • User-friendly.
  • Quicker UI.
Rubrick works very well with data center systems that have not been moved to the cloud. It also provides options on how you can move your disaster recovery backups to a cloud service. My team loves the ease of use with Rubric and they are able to rest well because of how well it works.

We use Rubrik in our labs for our support team to learn with. We also have customers that we manage that run Rubrik as well as we support Rubrik with customers we resell to. Our teams are constantly growing and additional members are being trained on it. We currently protect our labs and some production resources and leverage the cloud features and replication.
  • It is very easy to manage and just does its job well. Very little break-fix.
  • Stable and trustworthy - It just runs and we can feel confident our backups happen.
  • Alerting and reporting with email as well as Polaris are excellent.
  • Increased support for agent level items such as SharePoint, active directory, and exchange.
  • Simpler recovery of exchange data.
  • Managing multiple clusters through Polaris would be great to have.
Rubrik excels in virtualization backups and recovery. It's simple and reliable. The instant recovery is excellent.
The agent features for physical servers is always improving but still limited in some features. One big weakness is during restores if there is an error while putting files back to their location it is often reported as successful which is slightly misleading. This only occurs when the agent lacks permissions to put files back.

Rubrik - Simplify Your Data Protection World

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

We are using Rubrik to backup data in a multi-tenant environment. Each of five tenants purchased their own cloud archive location that they manage and send data to. We also are testing cloud instantiation, which converts a VMware or Microsoft virtual machine into either an AWS or Azure virtual machine once a backup on premises has completed. This will satisfy some disaster recovery requirements.
  • Rubrik greatly simplifies management and usability of backup systems. Configuration is very simple compared to our old system.
  • It makes archiving data to either an offsite cloud or NAS mount point extremely easy. All that is required, is a few configuration items, and away your data goes.
  • Support is outstanding. Maintenance upgrades and trouble cases are handled quickly and professionally.
  • Cloud cluster has it's limitations as far as performance and resilience. With large data in the environment, it has issues archiving large amounts of data to S3.
  • Multi-tenancy permissions are not fully baked. I had to get creative to give proper permissions to admins of different organizations. I submitted an RFE for this.
  • Notifications are also not fully baked. Anyone that is an admin level of any organization, receives all system notifications.
It is by far the easiest and well thought out backup solution I've encountered. If you have requirements to archive into AWS, Azure, or GCP, it is extremely easy to configure. You will be up and archiving in minutes. The SLA based job scheduling is very intuitive. The only negative or less appropriate usage I can think of would be the instantiation piece. It takes several hours to instantiate one VM to a cloud environment. This could be our lack of bandwidth, but it is only feasible for a long term DR scenario.

I've been using Rubrik for 2 years and the development of Rubrik is fast. I've witnessed the progress of Rubrik from backing up only VMs up to now where they can backup many operating systems and hosts. Rubrik is a user-friendly backup appliance that is easy to install and manage. I've done many implementations of Rubrik on different clients here in the Philippines and they are very happy with their purchase of Rubrik. The usual feedback that I got from the clients is that Rubrik is so easy to manage and the automation, deduplication and compression on their backups were excellent.
  • Automation of Backups
  • Support for Different Platforms and Operating System
  • Easy to Manage
  • Real Time Generation of Reports
Suited for virtual environments and if you want point-in-time recovery of database

Rubrik makes the Backup Blues go away

This product is used across our entire enterprise. We were able to consolidate down to this one product and remove a handful of others to deal with just the one vendor. Being able to standardize on Rubrik allowed us to successfully manage a large, geographically diverse company from one location and with less personnel overall.
  • VMware backups are done really well and super efficiently.
  • The general ease of installation of the entire product.
  • The APIs could be a little easier to exploit.
  • The interface could use a little work.
VMware environments would be a great fit for Rubrik. They have now also branched out into Acropolis, Hyper-V, and managing AWS backups as well. This product could be used in a lot of types of environments, from small to Enterprise, as they have a footprint to fit all of those and everything in between.

Rubrik is being used organization-wide. It helps us with backup deliverables for our critical and major systems. It is also used for disaster recovery for our virtual machine servers. Knowing that we are secure, and have a backup, makes us sleep better at night.

The company is going through a digital transformation. We are transitioning from the typical tape method to doing backups with Rubrik and archiving it to the cloud thru AWS.
  • Fast recovery.
  • Compression algorithms.
  • Backup recovery.
  • Fast mount point for virtual machines.
  • Quick integration with AWS.
  • Monitoring.
  • GUI design and functionality.
  • Solaris backup.
  • Longer SLA retention rather than just 999 days.
It is a well-curated technology that caters to the needs of some industries and companies who are looking for an easy to use, understandable and manageable platform. It is well suited for almost any industry. Support is fast and the customer relationship is great. The level of support and troubleshooting are the best.

Rubrik is the primary backup product we use. It is currently used to backup our virtual infrastructure running on VMWare. Our backup is stored on Rubrik Briks and also archived to S3 Storage. Overall the product is rock solid with great features. Other than our primary backup solution this is also major part of our DR Recovery plan. In case of disaster we can restore our VMs to AWS using Rubrik Cluster on AWS.

  • Direct Live backup of VMs using Native snapshot technology
  • Cloud Integration for Archiving of Data
  • Instant restore of VM using live mount on Rubrik Flash Storage
  • Application Aware backups for Active Directory
  • 0 day local retention of data when archived to S3
  • Role based access control for specific Backups.
  • Better Reporting options for Disk Usage
  • Alerts for unmanaged objects
It is perfect for taking backups of Virtualized enviroments. While it supports taking file share backups. Its does not support 0 day retention local retention of data when archived to cloud. Also it does not support application aware or granular backups of Active Directory

We are using the Rubrik fabric to backup and restore as needed enterprise-wide and into the cloud. There are limits to the cloud integration but overall nothing works like Rubrik. I set up the product and pretty much do not touch it again until I need to.
  • Database Backup and Restoration on the Rubik Box
  • Google-like searching no matter where your targets are
  • Calling support is better than calling 911. Help comes much faster and everyone is a native English speaker
  • Bare Metal Restoration
  • Work within OpenStack Cloud
Any place where a cloud out or cloud on strategy is required. I would replace any current backup solution with this product and in any place data encryption at rest is required. Data compression is second to none.

We ourselves use it for backup, and have multiple customers that use Rubrik Edges / nodes and we replicate the data from them. Replication is pretty easy to set up.
  • Comprehensive and easy to use

  • The v1 API should have more options
  • Reporting by SLA for remote sites
It's great when setting up a virtualized server backup; unfortunately physical backup is lacking.

We use Rubrik in our IT Department to perform backups of all of our servers, which we then replicate out to our DR site. With this product, we are able to backup entire VMs. Previously, we were only backing up file level objects on certain VMs and only having a day or two of backups. Now, we are backing up ALL of our VMs and using less space than we were before!
  • Deduplication
  • Backups
  • Set it and forget it
We feel that Rubrik was a perfect fit for our company size as far as cost and amount of data. Rubrik might not be the best option for very small companies that are under the 5/10 Terabyte market.

Rubrik is being used as the underlying hyper-converged backup solution for a large scale service provider grade deployment.
  • Scales out linearly and predictably with no limitations.
  • Management of backups and policies are aligned with service provider requirements.
  • Support of application-aware backups increases exponentially.
  • Fantastic API for integrations with Dynamic Documentation (Swagger).
  • Support team is alert and proactive.
  • Very low administrative overhead.
  • Live mount is very fast and consistent.
  • Source remote clusters require static IP Addresses (destination pulls data as opposed to push).
  • Exchange DAG is not supported natively!
  • AWS integration is limited.
Rubrik is very strong in traditional datacenter topologies due to its low rack footprint and very effective deduplication and compression technology. It may be less suited for SMB as there are software-defined solutions that have fewer dependencies and more flexible deployment architectures.

Rubrik was installed as a replacement to Legacy Backup Exec. Previously we conducted full backups daily/weekly. Rubrik backs up user data/exchange/VMs/SQL. It's quick and performs amazingly. This is a full company backup system, so it backs up all environments from test to production.
  • Live mounting
  • Speeds backups
  • Uptime
  • Support
  • Exchange restores
Great for live mounting a VM in an "emergency" scenario. We had an issue recently where an update destroyed a service on a VM. Rather than figuring out which one it was, we live mounted the entire VM in minutes (from a point in time backup). Found it to be working, so restored it and removed the broken one. Simple quick and easy.

Rubrik - easy to integrate and automate backup/restore/DR/archiving solution

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Rubrik is used across the enterprise to provide data integrity protection, data recovery, and compliance archiving services.
  • Simplified backup. Rubrik integrates well with modern data-center technologies. Rubrik backups are SLA-based, and you can apply SLAs to different levels of your infrastructure, e.g. from granular VM-based assignments to covering whole site with few clicks.
  • Simplified restore. Easy to use interface allows for delegation of restores to any user group.
  • Simplified backup to cloud makes replacing outdated backup targets, such as tape libraries, an easy task.
  • Simplified DR to cloud. In addition to the ability to mount restored virtual machines from the Rubrik appliances itself, Rubrik allows you to spin up backed up to the cloud instances in Azure cloud.
  • Working with legacy systems. Rubrik is a forward-thinking company, so check if you have systems that pre-date Rubrik if they are supported.
  • Alerting. Currently, in order to be notified of a Rubrik event, target alert contact must be a user in the Rubrik system, which is not the case for some of our own use-case scenarios.
Rubrik is a superb solution for virtualized infrastructure, as it provides great integration and automation tools for virtual machines/cloud backups.
Supporting heterogeneous physical infrastructure with legacy components requires a good deal of research with Rubrik.

We are an MSP who take our backups seriously. It's an additional line of defense for ransomware, improves our position on recovery in times of disaster and just a good thing to have when that one user make a big mistake and deletes all his work. Rubrik has taken all the overhead and management out of our backup routines. We used to have major remediation problems with our old backup solution when it came to large servers, exchange and application level items. Upon implementation of Rubrik our weekly management of backups went from 20 hours to 2. It's easy to use from start to finish.
  • Image and file level backups.
  • Granular and quick file recovery.
  • Archive and restore to cloud.
  • The initial investment price is too high but they can command that due to its success.
  • Image level support for HyperV 2012.
  • Additional Reporting capabilities.
If anyone is spending more than 20 hours a week managing their backups this will eliminate that.

Rubrik is used across the whole University to backup all production services. Initially all data will be stored on-site within the Rubrik appliances, then a secondary copy will be sent to the cloud.

Our Rubrik system currently backs-up all our Windows Linux Operating Systems, which are physical, VMWare environment, and SQL Services. The Rubrik agent that is required to install locally on physical servers and SQL is very lightweight: the agent installation file size is only 14MB.

After the Rubrik appliances were racked and connected, it only took less than 2 hours to deploy Rubrik and also to configure the environment ready to start backing up data. The Rubrik appliances use Erasure Encoding for redundancy, and it also maintains itself, self heals, and optimises. Rubrik encrypts data at rest, in-flight and in archive. The Rubik interface does not require any fancy software installed or Java, it uses a standard browser that supports HTML. Rubrik fully supports APIs, there is a repository available for Rubrik customers to share their code.
  • Rapid Recovery of VMs and SQL services -- recover a second and have it up and running within 30 seconds.
  • Simplicity
  • Reduced TCO costs over a 5 year period
  • Reduction of maintenance - a previous backup system had several was installed on Windows Server which needed to be maintained and patched as well as the backup software. No tape library and no tapes.
  • Uses HTML5
  • Searching for data is an ease with Rubrik
  • Currently does not backup active directory objects
Contacting support has been a great experience, Rubrik upgraded our software remotely via a Support Tunnel which can be enabled within the HTML5 interface.

Rubrik is used for our enterprise systems providing protection for all of our internal systems. It provides protection and the ability to recover our systems in a DR scenario. It protects all of our VMWare, physical windows/Linux, AIX, and NAS shares. The product provides us the ability to instantly recover VMS reducing impact in scenarios when recovery is needed.
  • Easy to use and manage
  • Fast VM recovery times
  • Great technical support when issues arise
  • Pricing. Instead of sticking with an "all in one bundle", they recently have started putting prices on new features in the product. While some are understandable to add additional charges, expansion of the base functionality is not one of those that should require an additional cost
  • Global Pane of Glass for Management. Its available but does not yet give provide full multisite management (plus this is an additional cost)
  • Supportability of applications are limited but are growing. Its new so its understood but they seem to be pumping out new functionality with every release
For most smaller to medium environments, it fits perfectly and provides a great solution for backup/recovery. It is easy to use/manage and reduces man-hours while improving protection. For larger environments, it will possibly be a hit or miss for a complete solution and provide closer to 80% coverage so two products would have to be run for backups and recovery.

Rubrik is currently our primary Backup and Archiving solution. We use it to backup our entire IT infrastructure. It is connected to our vmware environment to backup VMs. We use it to protect our file shares and SQL database as well. We archive to AWS for long term protection. It gives us company wide protection for our server infrastructure
  • Setup and connection to our systems was incredibly easy.
  • Configuring protection was intuitive and simple. We had it protecting our environment in about 2 hours from opening the box.
  • Restoring using live mount is absolutely amazing.
  • I would like to have a specific Active Directory protection option.
Rubrik is a bit pricey but it is well worth it if you can afford it. The ease of use is amazing and I expect that I'll save enough time on this appliance to make up for that extra cost. It also has encryption baked in where other options did not have that option.

Rubrik is being used to consolidate the multiple data protection software application that each required a fair amount of interactions to keep things working properly. Putting Rubrik in place has already cut the amount of regular troubleshooting tasks of the previous software platforms in half, and we have only been able to retire one of the platforms that were using.
  • The Rubrik appliance is easy and a joy to setup.
  • Configuring protection is very intuitive.
  • Restoring files, VMs, or databases is very simple.
  • When they added the VLAN functionality the management interface responds on all IPs, we should be able to lock management to specific interfaces.
Rubrik is well suited for most serious where the business wants to take data protection seriously. A less appropriate scenario is a business that doesn't have the knowledge or money to properly protect their data and instead rely on personnel to "come up with something".

We are currently using Rubrik to backup our virtual environment across the entire organization.
  • From box to full setup: From the unboxing of the appliance to my first backup was about 1 hour!
  • Easiness of use: We no longer need a "backup master" with the company, Rubrik makes it extremely easy to backup and restore your environment.
  • "DR Like" - We have used Rubrik to mount copies of VMs for testing. So not only is Rubrik a great backup utility, but it also works great for DR testing.
  • Active Directory Object backup
  • The way the space consumption is shown in the console
  • Be able to create multiple SLA policies for one VM
  • Well suited for a virtual environment.

We currently use Rubrik for enterprise backups and DR. We use Backup with offsite Replication, and archival abilities, to allow us to be versatile with our data and provide assurance that we can can recover our data both quickly and confidently. This is managed by our IT departments for Virtual\Physical\Application (SQL, Oracle, Exchange) environments. This product addresses a lot of issues we have faced over the years. With previous backup solutions, we'd spend a good amount of time trying to keep our backup solutions running so that we could have consistent backups. However since we have switched to Rubrik, we no longer have that issue, so we can focus on the company data rather than the backup application reliability. With its ability to have multiple destinations to comply with company SLA's in regards to backups and DR, we can move forward with an improved DR plan. With previous backup solutions, we could not have multiple targets or had to rely on tape backups, and we had to hire another company to take them every day and store them.
  • Performance: with its ingest speeds, as well as its block level dedupe and compression, we can store a large amount of data with a small footprint in our data centers.
  • One Console to rule them all provides convenience and simplicity without sacrificing its abilities.
  • Easy to use and manage
  • I would like to see a little more improvement on the user management (though currently it's not bad.) Just so we could get a little more granular with specific users.
Virtual Environments are where it shines; SQL and Oracle also work very well. This is not an appropriate product if you are running a lot of physical machines on older Operating Systems, however this is normal for most newer backup solutions.

Since we started working with Rubrik, our experience has been amazing.
  • Recovery. Granular file recovery, index searches ,SQL database and VM recovery, in seconds and regardless of database or VM size
  • Flexibility. Rubrik offers more than backups, it covers a lot of use cases and gives customers flexible solutions
  • Simplicity. It's very easy to deploy and extremely easy to use, no need for extensive courses
  • Add object recovery
  • Multi-tenancy across replicas
  • Data validation reports
I believe that Rubrik covers all kind scenarios. It is an enterprise solution that can be delivered to small and medium businesses through Rubrik service providers' parents. Also, since Rubirk is a data management solution, it covers lot of use cases such as backup recovery, archive, data copies analysis, and more.

Rubrik is used as the primary data protection solution.
  • Rubrik simplifies protection of assets and data across the estate, making it easy to protect VMs, SAN, database and OS/file level information.
  • The search function from the very front page makes it very easy to identify data for restore. That ease of use becomes the standard across the entirety of the restoration process - quick and pain free.
  • RBAC access is industry standard in data protection application and it's not different here - again very easy to set up with depth and granularity for those that require it.
  • Automation of restores should be available from the GUI - at present one must configure scripts to interface with the APIs
Especially suited to medium size companies with large end users on virtual desktop environments - the ease of restoration makes accidental deletions almost impact free.
