Well, the software is the same in all. But what Rubrik offers is way better and different from these products. There are a lot of options and capability features which are offered by Rubrik such as Live recovery which we have implemented recently on a NAS share and it has turned out to be very useful for us to recover files on the share.

  • Veeam Backup & Replication
Rubrik is very seamless and is super easy to connect to a VM environment. I find it is easier to configure and maintain than Veeam. One of the main reasons we selected Rubrik was the ease of deployment and the added ransomware protection. Ransomware attacks are on the rise especially with government and educational institutions in our state. It is important for us to safeguard our data and to be proactive instead of reactive.

We moved from Backup Exec to Rubrik and never looked back. The deduplication features are outstanding in being able to spin up a VM on the system to check for something on a backup and move it to the production server is not something I had seen before. Rubrik brought us additional functionality and it was easier to use.

I have used Veeam for longer than the other solutions so I am familiar with the interfaces, scheduling, targets and recovery. Rubrik offers the same protection with less tweaking with better performance. For Zerto, it was a close competitor for everything we were looking for, but the hosting solution we had chosen made the solution the wrong choice for us. We very often had failed backups, got calls in the middle of the night for backup jobs not working and it seemed to have an easy runbook for failover but we could never get it working right. Unitrends and SnapVault were some of the worst we tried with compatibility and performance being high on the list.

Faster backup, higher deduplication rates, quicker development and much quicker support. UI miles better than either contender and easy to use for superusers of backup and restore. Backup and DR should be simple and easy to use and not convoluted and error riddled.

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.

We evaluated Veeam Backup & Replication and Dell EMC Avamar for our refresh, and we were using Dell EMC Avamar beforehand for 5 years. There were certain components (such as lack of hardware) with Veeam Backup & Replication (we would have had to purchase a separate storage solution) that led us away from that option. I had a lot of experience with Dell EMC Avamar beforehand and Rubrik won out easily for me.

There were a few things that set Rubrik apart - Ransomware detection, SSO integration, global search functionality, operation and GUI, etc. - but personally, the one thing that led me to want to change is the support offered by Rubrik. Having spent years fighting with Dell EMC Avamar support (long times between inputting a service call to getting an engineer, almost always getting an engineer that works hours that were the polar opposite of mine, etc.) I was ready to try a solution that would work for me not only when everything was going well, but also when things are going badly. I've put in several support tickets to Rubrik and their response is always fast and they always get me going again. Additionally, it was always nearly a month-long ordeal to get software upgrades installed for the Dell EMC Avamar, going through multiple teams and departments. With Rubrik, it's as simple as putting in an incident and an engineer performing the update.

Rubrik replaced netback up a much more static and archaic data backup system. Rubrik did improve our environment, and as a person who inherited the role of data management, there were some learning curves. In some cases for a new user, there are so many bells and whistles the interface can be overwhelming or vague in functionality.

Rubrik brings Immutable store and less work for a backup administrator.
TSM had one interesting feature as part of a backup you could say also archive/delete say .mov files as they should not be in your staff's my documents to help clean up filer storage.
Rubrik works best in virtual spaces and cloud spaces.

Rubrik has provided much more simplified licensing. Rubrik has provided a much more succinct, relevant, and useful console. Rubrik's console allows easy searching within backups for files/objects. Rubrik was much easier overall to deploy and get working to its fullest capabilities and feature sets.

We evaluated solutions from Veeam, Dell, CommVault, Exagrid, and Cohesity and found Rubrik to have the greatest ease of use and all the security features we needed as necessary for a modern solution. Additionally, Rubrik was very competitive in pricing.

Networker never did work right for us, but Rubrik was a quick deployment. Avamar was both complex and unreliable. Often backups were corrupt, and would take hours to restore. Everyone on our team knows how to use Rubrik with little training, and the backups usually complete within minutes of starting. The only exception to this is when restoring from an archived backup.

  • Avamar
Rubrik crushed Avamar in a side-by-side comparison. Out of the box, Rubrik was up and running quicker, absorbing backups faster and integrating with VMware much better than Avamar. We had faults with Avamar backing up SQL servers that did not happen with Rubrik. Overall, Rubrik beat Avamar in every test we performed. We have also removed Symantec NetBackup, BackupExec, CommVault and other backup products from our environment and expanded the use of Rubrik to remote sites.
