About Rubrik

Rubrik is cloud data management solution which allows users to manage and automate data backup, offsite replication, archiving, and data recovery through a single platform.

Rubrik can be used to manage data backup and recovery for cloud applications, with a suite of RESTful APIs for orchestrating backup, replication, archiving, disaster recovery, and more. Protection policies can be created in the built-in policy engine and mapped to business SLAs, for automatic execution. Application-consistent backups are available for SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server, and Oracle RDBMS, delivering data consistency.

The predictive search allows users to locate files, applications, databases, and virtual machines (VMs), to deliver near-zero RTOs (recovery time objectives). Customized visual reports can be created and shared, giving users insight into compliance, operational efficiency, and capacity utilization, and reports can also be scheduled for delivery by email.


Key benefits of Rubrik

  • The included suite of APIs allows Rubrik to integrate with third party systems, enabling the provision of data management services and automation of disaster recovery workflows.

  • The real-time, predictive search system delivers near-zero RTOs (recovery time objectives), allowing users to instantly locate files, applications, databases, and virtual machines (VMs).

  • Automations can be created through the built-in policy engine to manage the creation, consumption, and retirement of data services without requiring daily operational management.

  • User access can be controlled with granular, role-based permissions, and compliance reporting is automated for completion of internal and industry audits.

  • Users can schedule, customize, and share visual reports, and view analytics on compliance, operational efficiency, and capacity utilization in real-time.

    Rubrik has allowed us to stop focusing on the minutiae of running a homegrown backup storage/orchestration product and focus on automation of the infrastructure/deployment instead
    Rubrik has improved the performance of our backup jobs, allowing us to perform more backups with fewer resources overall
    Rubrik has given our clients more choice in how backups function

    Pros

    The Rubrik API is central to the product
    Rubrik backs up VMware-based VM very well
    Rubrik is a growing company, which makes the personal interaction we have with their folks very rewarding and productive

    Cons

    The Rubrik product is still young (only a few years old), so it has some room to mature, specifically in the non-VMware backup space
    Rubrik is a growing company, so sometimes it's difficult to build a relationship with tech support staff when you get a new person every time

    One of the Best Purchases I've Ever Made

    There was one time that a fellow admin permanently deleted some backups without receiving confirmation on if they were still needed. It turned out that they were still needed and that the backups would be unrecoverable. There were multiple prompts to confirm this action, so we should not have expected it to be recoverable. However, the fantastic support team at Rubrik said "We can't make any promises, because the data should be deleted already. However, we're going to have our engineers use this as an educational experiment." While they were not able to recover all of the data, as it had been overwritten, they were able to piece together enough for us to get the most critical files. I have never seen a support team go this above and beyond the reasonable call of duty.

    Pros

    The Rubrik appliance is reliable, has a robust feature set, their support team is world-class (seriously the best in the game), and updates add awesome new features far more often than new bugs.

    Cons

    It can be a little pricey for small to mid size businesses, but It's well worth that cost. Other than that I have zero complaints.

    Alternatives Considered

    Commvault Cloud and Veeam Data Platform

    Reasons for Choosing Rubrik

    We wanted a more robust feature set, including the ability to archive to a cloud storage location and backup SQL data separate from VM snapshots.

    Pros

    Rubrik is used to protect 1,000+ objects in my environment with 90%+ being VMware virtual machines. It is being used across the whole organization, globally, with three clusters existing to support our global initiatives. It provides backup protection for my objects and also provides a way to migrate certain data profiles into the cloud.

    Searchable Content - search for file across datasets allows for quick restores.

    Cons

    I am patiently awaiting the release of 4.1 which should bring massive improvements to the functionality of the system as well as add additional features missing from the product. I feel Rubrik is well suited for customers that want to run high amount of snapshots per day and wish for a lower RPO granularity for restore. It is less appropriate for perhaps customers that want to run all their backups in one evening because of how jobs are queued and spread across the backup window.

    Missing functionality - allow for more granular intervals across different time segments.

    Easy to install. Support is excellent. The product has saved us a few times with production servers going down. Instant recover is great.

    Pros

    Setup was a breeze. Easy to create SLAs depending on how many snapshots you want of each vm. Migration to either azure or aws is also handy. Customer support is excellent.

    Cons

    No cons at this point in time as we've had no issues whatsoever with the product.

    Moved to Rubrik from Avamar and it's miles better. APIs, software, speed, not having to have accelerators or proxies. Have had a few issues with figuring out a backup or new feature but one here and there is nothing compared to before. Support it useful and usually knows what to do but sometimes it does take a few tries.

    Pros

    Speed. Backups are very quick, restores (especially instant ones) are very very quick.

    Cons

    Sometimes figuring out why a backup failed requires you to open a support ticket, the errors aren't super useful or help and a lot of times it's a quick fix from them but a more descriptive error message would point to the same thing.
