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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

Rubrik has the ability to instantly recover a VM run as needed then vmotion back to the host when it is stable, this ability is a company must have. It also has the ability to mount a DB to any other DB capable server cloud or on prem is a highly necessary tool for business continuity.

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.

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 well suited in almost any environment but is exceptional in a VMware virtualization environment. I have spoken on Rubrik's behalf on many occasions. I feel it's best to have a real world use to be able to convey how well it works as well as any shortcomings.

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 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.

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.

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.
