Overall Satisfaction with Rubrik

Our enterprise backup infrastructure was complex and needed checking daily. Restoring files and folders was frequently time-consuming because our users couldn't articulate filenames/paths/server details of missing documents. This was replaced by 2 Rubriks each of 4 nodes and backups of 350VMs were moved into the Rubrik system over a few weeks. Backups are now immutable, and SLAs have been set up to push them to cloud storage after 14days of residing locally. Restores are very simple now due to Rubik indexing all documents and having a google-like search to locate data. Both administering the system and restoring files/VMs is now much easier.
  • Simple management GUI
  • Index of all files/folders across all data within the system
  • Easy to set up SLAs to move older data to cloud or cheaper storage
  • Indexing of large backups can take too long
  • Increase ability to tailor the path data takes from recourses to the rubriks
  • All backups are immutable now
  • Allowed organization to adopt public cloud backup for first time
  • Can restore user documents rapidly even if not provided a whole filename
  • Veeam Backup & Replication
Veeam is more customizable but complex. Rubrik makes you realize the complexity wasn't necessary for the business needs.
Rubrik emphasizes the immutability of your data once it's on its hardware. Staff is more aware of this now, and more educated. We haven't experienced ransomware, however, we'd know we can engage directly with Rubrik support if we do.

Would you buy Rubrik again?


If simplicity is valued over complex alternatives Rubrik wins. Previous complex tasks just aren't required anymore. This may upset technicians, but it drives value to the business and allows those technicians to do something more productive than tinker with an over complex backup infrastructure.
