Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

Rubrik is used as the single backup platform within the business, ingesting data from virtual (VMware) and physical hosts alike. Applications protected include Exchange, SQL and Oracle and Office 365
  • Replication to cloud
  • SLA based backups
  • Data immutability
  • Single platform
  • Out of the box reporting could be better - However the API interface allows the generation of custom reports and the ability to retrieve any detail from the system
  • It’s improved operational efficiency, as we now don’t have to spend time scheduling backups, and has created very tangible savings. In the next 5 years we expect to save over 55% switching from our legacy provider to Rubrik. It’s also mitigated us against any future data centre blackouts through its Azure replication capabilities - while significantly reducing our power consumption and footprint in the data centre.
Completely fresh way of looking at backup. Rubrik removes the need for separate software, server, storage, networking and DR replication stacks; providing a simple to install, simple to configure, simple to manage single all-in-one unit. This reduction is complexity allows the operations team to spend time developing rather than continuous housekeeping/management.

Do you think Rubrik delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Rubrik's feature set?


Did Rubrik live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Rubrik go as expected?


Would you buy Rubrik again?


From our experience, Rubrik has been well suited to our multiple platform, multiple application environment. Unboxing, racking n' stacking, base configuration and connection to our environments was simple, with the first backups being taken within 2 hours of delivery.

Rubrik does however rely on more modern versions of operating systems and hypervisors - environments running out dated 32bit platforms may find Rubrik can't support those services.

Using Rubrik

5 - 5 members in the team that supports Rubrik....but the time they spend doing so is minutes per day.

Because it is the only product that we have ever bought that does what its supposed too.
