"The solution is very user-friendly. After setting up five machines for our customers we teach them how to set up the agent and start doing their backups. It is very easy for them once they see how to do it, they like to do it on their own."
"It's easy to use."
"The interface is user-friendly and can be used by the end-users."
"Dell EMC NetWorker integrates well with our domain and the performance is quite good on-premise. We receive approximately 1 terabyte within one hour."
"Simple, stable and straightforward."
"The GUI is the best feature. It's very good and easy to use."
"When you reach out to your maximum license availability, or you exceed your license limit, NetWorker never stops doing your backups."
"It can support many different versions, both newer and older."
"The ease of use is the most valuable feature. It is a very simple system compared to just about any other back up technology. It is extremely easy to use and very versatile."
"Rubrik is highly scalable and is easy to do."
"We have a great success rate for backups with Rubrik and because of the ease of automating tasks, we also run periodical restores to check the quality of the backups."
"The main benefit is that we are secured in terms of workloads. We know that if we need to restore any VMs, or even any files inside a VM, that we will succeed 100 percent. This means that we don't need to spend much time administering the backup environment because we know it is self-healing and efficient. So, we are spending that time on something else, which is always a plus."
"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."
"The ease of use and innovation are the features that stand out for us."
"The web interface is user-friendly, clean, and it provides a good summary of what you're protecting at a glance."
"Rubrik is stable and easy to use."
"I would like to see better support for the container systems, and we would like to see more support for image backups instead of pure file backups."
"The licensing rules are difficult to navigate and understand."
"The process of upgrading versions should be improved because as it is now, you have to completely uninstall the old version first, and then install the new version."
"The solution could improve by having more integration."
"It's complex in nature."
"It is a little buggy at times, which is the only thing that I dislike about this product."
"Support is definitely an area of concern because of the time it takes to resolve our issues."
"I would like to see the user interface improved, more documentation, faster support, and it could be easier to configure."
"Capacity reports could definitely be improved. It's hard to determine what is using the space and why. For instance, you can see that some host is using 2 TB on the Rubrik node and the disk space on that host is 400 GBs. It's hard to explain how there can be 2 TBs of data on local storage when nothing has changed on the host for the past three days."
"There is room for improvement in pricing. After the licensing, the price tends to go up as time goes by."
"Looking at how the data is broken down, we can see the total story, but sometimes it's difficult to see how big a particular snapshot is. Across 90 days of snapshots, which one is a particularly large one? Looking at the data holistically could be a lot easier."
"The solution needs to be more secure and needs to better protect against ransomware."
"The reporting in the dashboard and reporting for extractions both need improvement. I would suggest making them easier to understand and use, not just out-of-the-box. We should also be able to customize them."
"The recovery of Oracle databases is too complicated. It is not something that helps the DBA, the Database Administrator, but it should be done by the backup person like many other solutions. Everything is ready for the DBA to recover the database. It is a way of doing things, but I don't think you should give the backup people the ability to do it."
"If there was something that we could get Rubrik to fix, it would be when our DBS takes snapshots of a server or the database, the replication doesn't kick off fast enough. They can't remote it to the peer site and manipulate it back up in order to move it over, take a copy of production, slap it over, and test it out. As I understand, they are working on it. Replication works. We also get spoiled by how good things are now. We get to a point where it is so easy but when something isn't instant gratification, it seems that everything else is so amazing, why isn't this right?"
"I would love to be able to just get from the dashboard to a file that I need, or a system that I need."
