Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

We use Rubrik to backup and replicate between several states using 3 physical installs and 2 virtual installs. It is being rolled out as our official backup solution.
  • 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.
  • I would like to have the ability to set expiration dates for relics. When VMs are deleted, the backups (relics) require manual intervention to remove, and I may not want them removed right away.
  • Integration of multiple clusters into a single dashboard.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of SLA retentions.
  • The initial cost itself was far below even a renewed license cost of our existing solution.
  • We now have the confidence from a DR perspective that we have on nearly all servers a 1 hour or less RPO for our replicated backups.
Rubrik was the simplest, cheapest and most feature-filled.
I'm not a fan of the NFS share backups for Oracle. It seems like overkill just to be able to apply your SLA policy to your native backups.

I'm also not a fan of how SQL backups are not contained in an instance. The databases are individual backups.
