Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

We use Rubrik currently in our environment, with Rubrik we are able to run around 16k backups jobs per day and we are saving a lot of disk space with the high compress and dedup level of the equipment.
The console is frendly and usefull, with Rubrik we use VMware backups, File System, backups, replication between sites and archiving to different destinations.
There is a replication solution that helps to be able to move the workload to another site in case of emergency (some kind of Disaster Recovery).
I strongly recommend Rubrik.

Pros

  • Compress and dedup.
  • VMware backups
  • Replication between sites
  • Archiving

Cons

  • Support
  • New releases
  • Support more hypervisors
  • Positive with VMware environments
  • Positive with compress and dedup
  • Negative with the support level
EMC Networker and DataDomain
Both of them are perfect, however, the solutions are separeted and you must acquire the software and hardware to be able to feel the best performance.
With Rubrik you acquire software and hardware together and you can feel the best performance from the beginning, nice option.

Do you think Rubrik delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Rubrik's feature set?

Yes

Did Rubrik live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Rubrik go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Rubrik again?

Yes

Rubrik is well suited in VMware environments.
Rubrik is less appropriate for Hyper-v environments
In both scenarios Rubrik works well, however, ther are windows version without compatibility and that could be a stopper with some legacy clients that are looking data management solutions. It could be nice if Rubrik in the future support more hypervisors, such as KVM, CITRIX, etc.
