We use Rubrik for all backup/restore purposes for the University staff and students. We have started to use threat protection as well.
  • Almost instant VM mounting
  • Clear interface to view compliance
  • Auto discovery of new VMs added to environment
  • Unable to pause individual VM backups
  • No auto-discovery of SQL hosts
  • Reporting of failures can be very vague
Of the many different technologies I have used over the years, I would say this is the best but does come at a premium cost. I would certainly recommend a VMware environment over Hyper-v. If vms migrate between clusters in Hyper-v they will be treated as relics, that is my only real complaint.

Our enterprise backup infrastructure was complex and needed checking daily. Restoring files and folders was frequently time-consuming because our users couldn't articulate filenames/paths/server details of missing documents. This was replaced by 2 Rubriks each of 4 nodes and backups of 350VMs were moved into the Rubrik system over a few weeks. Backups are now immutable, and SLAs have been set up to push them to cloud storage after 14days of residing locally. Restores are very simple now due to Rubik indexing all documents and having a google-like search to locate data. Both administering the system and restoring files/VMs is now much easier.
  • Simple management GUI
  • Index of all files/folders across all data within the system
  • Easy to set up SLAs to move older data to cloud or cheaper storage
  • Indexing of large backups can take too long
  • Increase ability to tailor the path data takes from recourses to the rubriks
If simplicity is valued over complex alternatives Rubrik wins. Previous complex tasks just aren't required anymore. This may upset technicians, but it drives value to the business and allows those technicians to do something more productive than tinker with an over complex backup infrastructure.

We use Rubrik to protect all our virtualization systems, Azure VMs, Azure SQL, and M365 data. We are using Radar and Sonar for data security and ransomware protection through threat hunting and anomaly detection. We hope to soon start working with app flows to assist with our disaster recovery plans too.
  • Simplicity. Sometimes it can be hard to make a system simple to use but Rubrik is.
  • Speed of backup and recovery is excellent.
  • Engagement from Rubrik with us has been superb.
  • Id like to see Storage Account protection included in Polaris
  • A clear indication of files that have been deleted in a time range would be handy when performing file-level restores.
  • Automated backup validations would be a nice built-in feature, currently, this is a manual process for us.
Rubrik is well suited for enterprise-size organizations, I don't think it would be suited to small businesses. This is a personal opinion as I work in an enterprise-scale organization and it works well for us. If you have to buy Briks I am not sure the same could be said for smaller-scale operations.

Using Rubrik CDM and Polaris. We are also using Radar, Sonar and APPFLOWS. These extra applications come with the Enterprise license. Rubric CDM is an ideal product for protecting your multivendor virtual environment. Radar is great at identifying and preventing ransomware. Sonar addresses the sensitive data classification and security. APPFLOWS addresses the DR orchestration.
  • VMs backup
  • NAS shares backup
  • ransomeware detection, protection.
  • Sensitive data classified.
  • VMware DR orchestration.
  • SQL Server high transactions backup.
  • Rubrik SQL Server backup using Microsoft VSS, which is causing the the database issues and delays for the very high transaction rate.
  • better file filtering - file sets concept is not very intuitive.
Good for the VMs backup.
Improves the CIFS and NFS shares backups, as it’s not relying on NDMP.
Great data protection from ransomware and classified data security.

We use it as a backup tool to implement backups on Cloud and Databases. It is quite efficient as compared to products like Avamar and NetBackup. It has a lot of backup frequency and we can use SLA domains to implement backup and retention based on the business requirement. Also, Rubrik does offer a consistent backup of cloud products.
  • Has a Hype-converged Infrastructure support.
  • Has wide range of backup capability that includes VM's, SQL, Servers, Storage.
  • Can be integrated with VM conversion from .vmdk to .vhd
  • They can integrate their software with other vendors including NetApp, Oracle, IBM.
  • They should certainly improve there bootstrap time for rebooting the Rubrik Brik.
  • They should work on the uptime of the backups frequency.
It's a way faster and reliable backup software we have implemented till now. Lots of cloud backup are been initiated with the help of Rubrik. Certainly, we have certainly improved our timeframe for backup. Also, it is very consistent and the restoration of the backup is also very efficient and viable.

We use Rubrik to backup all physical and virtual servers on prem. The appliance has been installed in multiple data centers to ensure data replication. Smaller remote sites have the Rubrik Edge setup for cost savings. All long-term data retention is being archived in the cloud for a lower cost of storage.

We use Rubrik to backup our VM environment using snapshots, local backups are retained on-premises and in AWS. This provides quick restore options and prevents the loss of data as well as providing a quick way for us to restore should any issues occur. Rubrik also provides ransomware protection and checks for anomalies in the data thus providing us with 360 protection of our data.
  • Quick and efficient snapshots
  • Ransomware protection
  • Data checks
  • Secure containment of data
  • Easier firmware upgrade process
In my experience, Rubrik is perfect for what my organization needs. It is well suited for taking snapshots of virtual environments and does so seamlessly and efficiently. It is a set it and forget it platform meaning that once you link your VM center, configure SLA domains, and where the backups are to be collected and sent it is hands-off unless you need to make changes.

Rubrik has taken over as our primary local back up device, replacing all other devices. We then set up the device to send out a remote copy to our offsite storage. It resolved a lot of issues that we had with other back up systems and the feature that we like the most is the ability to instantly restore an entire server. Support is also excellent when we had issues. I think the "follow the sun" support model can be a bit better though because it seemed like I got responses very late in the day for some of the tickets and then had to work into the night to resolve some of the tickets. However, all the technicians that I encountered were superb.
  • Instant restore of entire servers.
  • Easy to understand dashboard, very intuitive.
  • Remote agents are automatically updated when the device is OS is updated.
  • Able to easily onboard devices that we need to back up.
  • Setting up e-mail alerts.
  • Getting certificate installed.
  • Would be great if Rubrik and self test backups (as in restore tests).
Easiness of backup. Easiness of restore.
Since it's not a Windows device, we don't need to worry about updates.
The Ransomware protection feature is second to none.
We also like the fact that we can put process in place to protect previous backups (immutable).

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.
My team loves the support that Rubrik offers. They are quick to respond and work well within the team. They also like how its set up for them to easily get in to make it fix and the monitoring that comes along with it. This helps us stay ahead of issues with the system!

We currently use Rubrik as the County's Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solution. Currently, we use Rubrik to backup our Oracle and SQL databases, file servers, O365 environment, VMWare infrastructure. We maintain approximately 2 weeks [of] backups on prem for near term data recover and archive to the cloud (Wasabi) for long-term retention.
  • Validates all backups against ransomware during and after backups are performed.
  • Is seamless in backing up data whether on prem or in the Cloud.
  • Support engineers are extremely knowledgeable and useful in providing guidance.
  • Integrates will with native Oracle and SQL backup processes.
  • Could use better data compression. While good, could be better.
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.

The best backup and DR platform I have ever used. Implemented in two weeks for our environment of VMware and file servers. Every system can back up, but only the best can restore this easily. Just a few clicks and your VM is back. We back up our data to our DR site and to the cloud.
  • Assign SLA.
  • Quick restore.
  • Live mount of databases.
  • Better disk usage reports.
  • File management.
Rubrik is perfect for backing up virtual environments. Rubrik API can be used to create automation for regular tasks, and reports are sent to email. Ransomware defense by write once immutable snapshots is very dependable and keeps our data safe from cyber risks. By using MFA for logins only the right people can access the backup system.

Presently we use Rubrik in the IT Department, but we intend to break out additional roles to developers and administrators to have more granular access. The problem that Rubrik addresses is that it streamlines testing, we have a dev environment with up-to-date information whenever we need it. We have fast recovery on-demand with file-level recoveries faster than ever with Rubrik's indexing across all backups we can search in a moment and find where that file's physical location and if it was duplicated in our environment. Rubrik offers easy-to-understand and -apply backup policies (SLA) that with a few clicks and I've customized a backup schedule for an entire department, group of servers or datacenter. Previously this was a tedious process that required customized settings and troubleshooting to streamline. We also have something we've never had before, analytics on our backups for ransomware and compliance. We know where people are storing data and if it matches our compliance needs and we have heuristics analyzing our backups constantly looking for abnormalities. I've never slept better since having Rubrik protect my data.
  • Easy to use.
  • Fast recovery.
  • Backup analytics.
  • Immutable backups if emergency occurs.
  • 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.
  • Developer needs a mirror copy of an environment.
  • You need to recover something very quickly and downtime is not an option.
  • You are concerned about ransomware and your current solution isn't cutting it.
  • You go through audits that require you to be compliant on file storage.
  • You have a smaller backup team and you want to spend less time managing your backups.
  • I would not get Rubrik if I didn't have the budget for it.

We use Rubrik as the primary backup solution for our whole organisation. It addresses our DR strategy solutions and backup solutions. Overall, it has so far worked great as a way to address these with the ability to backup to cloud.
  • Backup speed.
  • Datadeduplication.
  • Simplistic UI.
  • PowerShell capability.
  • Weekend backup scheduling.
  • Easier to use reports creator.
  • Easier to read error reporting.

Best used in a slightly more modern infrastructure, some teething issues with our older systems and databases where the backup technology wasn't as easy to use/implement as promised during demonstrations; however, all around a great product which replaced a similarly rated product we had for 5 years previous.
Does what it says on the tin so far, still plenty of features yet to test out.

We use Rubrik as our primary enterprise backup solution for the entire university. We are currently using a an on-premises cluster, a cloud cluster in Azure (for DR replication and for agent-based backups from Azure VMs running MSSQL and Oracle) and Polaris to manage Azure-based snapshot backups. On-prem we backup virtual machines in VMware using both snapshots (for the majority of the workload) as well as agent-based backups for MSSQL and Oracle databases, as well as SMB shares on an EMC Unity array utilizing virtual NAS servers.
  • 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.
  • Would like to see file-level restores added for Polaris Azure VM snapshots (I believe this already exists in AWS).
  • Would love to have an NDMP option for interfacing with EMC Unity array NAS backups.
So far, this has been a wonderful solution for our organization. I would say anyone who is looking for something that is relatively easy to use would find this solution at the top of their list. After an initial learning curve (coming from Avamar) I have found it very easy to get around and find what I'm looking for. There is a bit of a paradigm shift when utilizing Rubrik's SLAs but now that I understand how it all works, it's actually a much simpler way of handling backups than something like Avamar.

I feel like this would be great for any organization no matter the size (and I understand they have plenty of implementations that are much larger than ours).

If you're looking for point-in-time restores of your databases (MSSQL and Oracle) this does a great job of integrating transaction logs - not something I was ever able to get in our previous solution. It also offers the ability to back up your databases using a direct mount point instead of the CDM software (so if you're currently dumping Oracle databases to an NFS mount point in a Data Domain, for instance, you can do the same thing with Rubrik).

I'm not sure where it would be less appropriate - from what I can tell, this is as fully featured as any other enterprise-class backup solution and meets all of our needs perfectly.

  • Recovery.
  • Integration with VCenter.
  • Consistency with Support Technicians.
  • Not given the user manual each time there is a question or issue with a paid product.
  • After hours support emailing off hours.
We just implemented Rubrik Polaris for our team and so far there are no issues. If there was any critique it would be that the entire experience was more or less hands-off and a bit cryptic. To expand on that, we received the link, a means to log in but that was it. No explanation of the features, no quick-start session. While there are user guides to go thru in my years of setting up new programs, add-on, etc. they usually have a high-level overview. Right now Polaris sits on our system next to Rubrik and to be honest not really sure what it is doing or what we should be paying attention to. In true Rubrik fashion, I request further assistance and am given a user manual that no one has time to review. So that was a little disappointing but as I mentioned that has been my experience with Rubrik overall.

Rubrik is used across our whole organization - all Servers physical (64bit) and VM (32 or 64 bit) We also use it for databases - MS SQL and Oracle. Rubrik solves the backup problem with backup windows and with Ransomware as it has an immutable store. Radar helps with efficiency of what to restore in case of an security event.
  • Full server restore quickly in a VM environment.
  • Data move4s with one is creating a new server or between drives with full security kept intact, especially for redirected my documents where even a DA does not have rights to the files.
  • in VM world still does vmdk snapshots to minimize backup times.
  • Uses the concept of SLA so one does not have to schedule all backups and have that headache.
  • Immutable store.
  • Very secure, and allows Archive to S3 cloud storage to offload repository size limitations.
  • Migrating off 32 bit machines is tough, as the RBS does not have a 32 bit component. They should have one for some backwards capabilities to make migration off 32 bit machines a breeze.
  • Needs to have the ability to restore to Windows SMB shares (UNC path and not hard dive letters) off a regular restore.
  • Needs a few more options on restore, e.g. even if an restore error, to still continue or not option.
  • Have a restore option to keep current security of take on security of the restore location.
  • E-mail notification of when a restore is completed.
Recommend Rubrik very highly, easy to learn though it uses some concepts that are different (SLA) than other BU systems. The concept of restores you will not find a restore button but must drill down into the source backup and do it from there. Lots of new concepts to learn and some to unlearn from old clunky legacy backup systems. Rubrik works very well in capturing and restoring of virtual servers.

Rubrik is right now our backup and data protection system that helps our company to backup protect and restore our production data. The system is really user-friendly and most of the actions are the one-click type. Features and products that support Rubrik like Polaris help our company to raise the security level. On the other hand, the enormous potential for integration makes it possible to place no limits or constraints on the location or nature of the backup sites.
  • Deduplication.
  • Easy implementation of SLA domain.
  • Oracle DB backup.
  • NoSQL DB backup.
  • Vault for particularly critical system backup.
I can think only about the NoSQL DB as a point where is less appropriate. Instead, I think that forcing the two-factor authentication for every user (AD, LDAP, or local) has to be a must.

Rubrik CDM alongside Polaris is protecting on-premise and Azure cloud resources. We also utilize Rubrik SONAR for sensitive file identification. And, we use Rubrik RADAR for anomalous file activity. Rubrik provides an immutable file system that protects the backups from possible encryption or corruption from malware/ransomware. Rubrik provides comprehensive and easy-to-use retention/replication features - they call them SLA domains. Rubrik provides an invaluable daily email report showing the last 24 hours - and 7 days of activity of Rubrik.
  • Daily easy to read reports of the previous 24 hours.
  • Daily report includes up to 7 days of activity in an easy Red/Green legend.
  • Rubrik's central console can manage most functions with a single pane.
  • Rubrik's integration and ability to leverage Azure storage for Long Term Retention are impressive!
  • Restores are amazingly robust and fast with Rubrik.
  • The "Compass" feature needs to be implemented in the Polaris side of Rubrik's solutions.
Rubrik is adept at protecting VMware. Rubrik has limitations protecting resources on older Microsoft Windows Server 2021 R2 Hyper-V clusters, but no issues protecting the newer 2016 or newer Hyper-V clusters.

We utilize Rubrik to back up all of our server and data infrastructures. We were a long-time CommVault customer and found the product to be expensive and very complicated. After reviewing many backup vendors and options, Rubrik was the clear winner in simplicity and was very cost affordable. It's helped us modernize our backup infrastructure and move away from tape by backing up to AWS.
  • The UI and setup process was very straight forward and easy to understand.
  • Rubrik provides modern backup security features such as 2FA and immutable disks.
  • We believe that a converged backup solution was the way to go and Rubrik has a great solution.
  • The AWS configuration was the most difficult piece of the setup and required a support call but they were able to get us up and running.
Rubrik's simple UI has greatly reduced the complexity in our backup solution while modernizing the process and security. It helped us jettison our old tape solution and allowed us to go to AWS. We're a highly virtualized environment but it also provides the needed components to backup physical servers.
