Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

We use Rubrik to protect all our virtualization systems, Azure VMs, Azure SQL, and M365 data. We are using Radar and Sonar for data security and ransomware protection through threat hunting and anomaly detection. We hope to soon start working with app flows to assist with our disaster recovery plans too.
  • Simplicity. Sometimes it can be hard to make a system simple to use but Rubrik is.
  • Speed of backup and recovery is excellent.
  • Engagement from Rubrik with us has been superb.
  • Id like to see Storage Account protection included in Polaris
  • A clear indication of files that have been deleted in a time range would be handy when performing file-level restores.
  • Automated backup validations would be a nice built-in feature, currently, this is a manual process for us.
  • I would hope it has a positive impact as we are more compliant with our backups than in previous years
Its comparable, both have features which are better than the other

Do you think Rubrik delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Rubrik's feature set?


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?


Would you buy Rubrik again?


Rubrik is well suited for enterprise-size organizations, I don't think it would be suited to small businesses. This is a personal opinion as I work in an enterprise-scale organization and it works well for us. If you have to buy Briks I am not sure the same could be said for smaller-scale operations.
