  • It just works right out of the box. No customizations were needed to start using.
  • It protects several types of databases such as IBM DB2 that are not protected by competing products.
  • The Rubrik Support team is very knowledgeable and responsive to our issues.
  • There is not yet a point-click recovery of IBM DB2 databases through the GUI, so it would be nice to see this developed.
  • The RSC console is lacking a few features that were available in the local CDM consoles, but Rubrik is constantly improving the RSC since all future development and new features will be added.
  • The feature to Live-mount an Oracle database is challenging for various reasons, so there could be some improvement there.

  • Storage savings using dedupe, compression and erasure coding
  • Define SLA to have backup jobs started, no time need to be defined
  • Scale out capabilities
  • 10 GE is mandatory, I think in some environment 1 Gbps could be used
  • Entry ticket is high, but once you growth, it is reduced
  • Lack of end user laptop support (officially)

  • Protecting data through air gapped immutable erasure coding
  • More granular control of permissions in the custom RBAC
  • quiescing I/O to Archival Location when pausing (instead of the pause causing all scheduled archive jobs to start canceling, which in turn generates tons of I/O)

  • 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.

  • Backups - it's what they started out doing and still at the core.
  • SLA Domains make life a breeze and can save you from yourself as a general catchall when new servers are introduced into the environment unexpectedly.
  • [The] user interface is very straightforward and helps to identify any issues.
  • When there is an issue, support reaches out in a timely manor.
  • We are having a slow GUI response issue right now that has been hard to pin down.
  • Replication times need to be improved. When DBAs take a snap it takes a while for it to be replicated over so they can then pull from there for testing.
  • Support turnover has been an issue. They've let some quality help go and it's hurt us and them.

  • Support is competent and very responsive.
  • Restores very easy and quick. The Briks themselves are robust enough to handle a workload while the live mounts are being migrated to permanent storage.
  • Customer feedback and feature implementation.
  • Ransomware investigations
  • I honestly want Rubrik to focus on what they do best. CDM was introduced and IMO it isn't robust enough for this feature.
  • I would like better API documentation.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of SLA retentions.

  • 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.
  • As they move to the Cloud, some support options are a little lacking
