Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

Rubrik is being used to backup more than 50TB of information used by our organization. We utilize the cloud out option and retired tape and the results for backup recovery has been easier than ever. We backup multiple file types and use a NAS. It address the problem of backing up with ease and having multiple restore options and google like searches.


  • Backing up VMs and Nutanix is easy to setup and process is just about the same across the board.
  • Google like searches on NAS data which make searching for a file easy and painless.
  • For SQL the option of just grabbing information you need and exporting out is useful.


  • NAS backup speed would like to be faster.
  • The ability to stop a backup schedule easier
  • Need the abilty to change backups to occur on a specific date
  • The ability to recovere quickly.
  • Cost savings based on maintenance costs
  • By using only a 2uU box the server room size can be reduced.
Setup and upgrades are very quickly compared to multiple day and weeks getting items on a schedule to do. With only one box with Rubrik to setup compared to multiple boxes with Avamar the ability to troubleshoot is easier. Support is better and easier to get too. More advancement with features with Rubrik.
If you need to restore a server quickly athe mount option allows you to mount the server on the Rubrik brik and run directly from the brik and saves time not having to transfer the information directly back to storeage on the original storage. Less than a few minutes time to accomplish the task.

Quick Initial Response
Yes we purchased premium support to ensure we have the quickest support for any technical issues such as questions, and hardware failures. The next day service for any hardware issues ensure that the product can be put back in a recovery state to continue doing backups, restores, and live mount.
Yes - Yes we have reported a bug and the fix and workaround was created quickly. Sometime in the same day or next day we have received an update to fix the issues which goes above what is expected. During the whole process support kept giving updates to ensure we know what is going on.
Yes we were doing a data center move and support assist with preparing the Rubrik box remotely to be shut down to be moved. Once we moved and finally got the Rubrik box mounted we could not get the unit setup because we need a special code from support. Local Rubrik team was able at the drop of a dime to meet at the datacenter to input the code to get Rubrik back up and running. I would think any other vendor we would most likely have to wait late next business day for any possible resolution but Rubik exceptional support is a game changer.
