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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rubrik is the primary backup solution for my company. Its ease of [use] and implementation made it very easy to move off of other backup solutions and cloud backup solutions. We have also deployed the Radar function of Rubrik and saw instant benefits of this feature. [Within] days we were alerted to a large amount of data being deleted for a CIFS share.

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.

We are using Rubrik for our entire server environment. We also use the archive feature as well as Polaris for PCI/PII monitoring. We love having read-only backups to restore from in case of any compromises. We use Polaris to make sure data is kept where it belongs and is not misused.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rubrik is the EASY BUTTON of backup solutions. Our company was drowning in a complicated tape solution. We switched to Rubrik, with its simple offsite cloud archiving, no more tape rotation, offsite storage, and complicated legal holds. Our SQL Admins could not be happier with how easy it is for them to do the on-demand backups and restore to a different server. Not only are full VM backups are quick, but a full VM restore is amazingly fast. Rubrik doesn't just sit on their accomplishment, they are continually working to improve the product and add other features to value add to the existing great product, and now with the addition of MFA to the console, security is even better.

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.

We use Rubrik to backup and replicate between several states using 2 physical clusters and 4 virtual devices. It is our go to solution for recovery and business continuity. It is our secondary solution for disaster recovery. We currently use organizations to allow all our DBAs to backup up SQL to Rubrik. We have one Windows Oracle team using managed volumes for backup.
