Sometimes our customers use it for PR purposes or for business continuity purposes.  Some of our customers have 400 users. Other customers of ours have 200 users and some more of our customers have 150 users using Rubrik Go. We also have a customer in Saudi Arabia with almost 1000 users. We definitely plan to keep reselling this solution.

    I have been dealing with this solution for almost four years. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Rubrik Go is both very scalable and stable.

    The technical support is wonderful. Very cooperative and informative.

    The initial setup is very easy and straightforward. It's much easier to set up than other products I have worked with.

    Deployment only takes two days.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Simple to use, easy to implement, and the performance is good
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is the ease of use for backing up VMs."
    • "I would like to see better integration with applications, such as those from Microsoft, to make backing up from those applications simpler."

    We are a system integration company in Egypt and we provide services to local customers. This is one of the solutions that we use for our clients and we have several different use cases.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is the ease of use for backing up VMs.

    The speed of reading and writing VMs is very good.

    What needs improvement?

    I would like to see better integration with applications, such as those from Microsoft, to make backing up from those applications simpler.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Rubrik Go for the past six to nine months.

    How was the initial setup?

    I found the initial setup to be quite easy.

    What other advice do I have?

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is the storage efficiency, as the storage footprint is very good.

    What needs improvement?

    Integration with the client is something that needs to be improved.

    Scalability can be an issue because of the appliances, so improvements can be made in that regard.

    The stability is good. We use Rubrik Go on a daily basis.

    Prior to using this solution, we used Dell EMC NetWorker. We switched to Rubrik because it was cheaper.

    How was the initial setup?

    We have two engineers who are responsible for maintenance.

    What about the implementation team?

    An integrator assisted us with our implementation.

    Rubrik Go is more cost-effective than similar solutions by other vendors.
