"Rubrik, when compared to Cohesity, Dell, and Veritas, was the best of the four."
"The live mount reduces complexity."
"When it comes to saving time managing our backups, Rubrik has saved us a lot of time compared to what we were using. It feels like it has saved us lifetimes of time because the process used to be difficult. It's not just the day to time savings. When something goes wrong, that's where the real time savings comes into play. We are able to get back to where we need to be more confidently and with much fewer steps."
"It has reduced our maintenance efforts. The amount of time and effort that would have gone in troubleshooting various issues related a data crash has been addressed by Rubrik. So, it has helped to improve our productivity. The data is being captured about our customers periodically that is secure and safe."
"Rubrik is highly scalable and is easy to do."
"I would rate the solution's web interface at eight out of ten. It's just fantastic and intuitive. It's so easy to use. I've never done any formal training on Rubrik, but I was able to quickly come to grips with its capabilities."
"The most valuable feature is the Instant Recovery, where we can restore a VM or SQL database or any server or application, and have it up and running on their appliance within a few seconds."
"It has also saved us time managing backups. It's pretty stable. So it sends us a report if something goes wrong, then you get a report. You don't really need to manually monitor this software over time. If something happens, you'll get an error and you'll get an email notification and then address it. We found the product pretty stable if it's configured correctly. So it has reduced management time."
"It's a pretty complete product."
"The granular restoration that it provides for a business application is most valuable. For example, for Exchange, we can restore a single mailbox or email. We can also do SQL Server restoration and bare-metal recovery for operating systems."
"The data backup replication has been the most useful feature. Previously, we copied the data hub to an external hard drive but now we are able to store the backup on one of the depository service."
"The solution is stable and the performance is good."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"One of the most valuable features of Veeam is that the restoration is easy and reliable."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"The solution does a good job with VM backups."
"User interface could be improved."
"The Office 365 protection could be improved."
"The solution needs to be more secure and needs to better protect against ransomware."
"The price of Rubrik is too high, especially when you are considering a change in the total backup solution."
"Rubrik is expensive."
"I would like to see the entire Office 365 product suite backed up by Rubrik. For instance, they do SharePoint and Exchange online, but they don't back up Microsoft Teams. So, I would like to see more of the Office 365 suite added into their backup capabilities."
"They support Hyper-V and it works with our CloudOut, the cloud DR, but they seem to add features for VMware first and Hyper-V gets added second or sometimes several releases after the VMware feature comes out."
"It is a lot more expensive than other solutions, but you get what you pay for."
"Veeam Backup is not enhanced. There aren't any enhancements yet and they are still using traditional methods for snapshots and to perform the backup, like many other vendors. Another improvement would be simplifying and integrating their software."
"think backing up from physical servers and ransomware security needs some improvements."
"The initial setup was not straightforward at all."
"Some of the best practice documentation could be improved."
"I would like to see the Veeam cloud solution and Microsoft Office 365 included all in one platform."
"In the next release, I would like replication directly to the cloud to be included."
"The one downside to Veeam is that they don't have a cloud product of their own."
"The price can be better."
