When I first heard about Rubrik in early 2016 and I was asked what I thought about Rubrik’s Technology. I was not able to form any kind of opinion because their website did not have much details on their product at time. We brought Rubrik in for a meeting to discuss their product and the road map. After the meeting I was intrigued and excited by their technology. In addtion, their roadmap at that time covered most areas that we would need for a backup product. Almost any backup solution is better than TSM, which is the product Rubrik would be replacing
Our company decided to move forward with a proof of concept. At the time of the pilot only virtual machines were supported. Being about 98% virtual this was not an issue for us but we knew we would need the granularity that 3.0 and later releases would bring with SQL. We learned early in the POC that this would be the product to replace our archaic TSM system.
These were some of the reasons we purchased Rubrik
- Implementation was half a day.
- Rubrik Support is top notch
- Leadership at the company and their ability to execute
- Sales Engineers go above and beyond to ensure the implementation is successful
- Roadmap will cover us 100%
