I've shortlisted two Backup and Recovery products and would like to determine which one to purchase. Which of the following products will be your choice: Cohesity DataProtect or Rubrik? Why?
Thanks for your help!

We went with Rubrik based on our needs.
We wanted on-prem backup with the option of having a second site where our data is replicated.
Rubrik now has some new offerings such as:
- RADAR that scans data on our on-prem backup storage for anomalies,
- SONOR for looking for specific data within the backups that might not be compliant, such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.,
- Rubrik Cloud Vault allows me to replicate my data to their data center which would keep my data air gapped from my site, and now their NAS direct offering where you don't even need their hardware on-premise but you can backup your NAS directly to their data center.
I also liked the fact that if you keep the Rubrik under maintenance when a new version comes out and your model has been EOL, they replace it for free.
While Rubrik is not the cheapest option out there, it fulfills all our needs and gives us the security knowing that our data is protected.
