Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

Rubrik is being used organization-wide. It helps us with backup deliverables for our critical and major systems. It is also used for disaster recovery for our virtual machine servers. Knowing that we are secure, and have a backup, makes us sleep better at night. The company is going through a digital transformation. We are transitioning from the typical tape method to doing backups with Rubrik and archiving it to the cloud thru AWS.

How fast and reliable the solution is in performing backup.
I would say it would still be the same process. We were mostly keen on the superiority of the technology from the products we were choosing.

Rubrik Implementation

From experience the implementation was smooth and easy, like a simple plug and play format but would need coordination from your network team to be able to see the entire IT infrastructure.
Change management was minimal - not quite sure from the change management side.
  • dashboard inconsistency

Rubrik Training

Yes, but would need fundamental idea on backup technology.

In my humble opinion it is just the right type of complexity.
Just following the best practices on backup practice and rubrik's standard.
No - there is no facility to customize the interface
No - the product does not support adding custom code
None. It is still out of the box configuration.
