Peace of Mind

Cohesity has been excellent to work with. The local team is always helpful and responsive, support is excellent, and the product exceeds all expectations. We started small because we were uncertain that they could do all of the things we heard about during the pre-sale process, but we couldn't be happier with the product. We are currently in the process of tripling our capacity and adding additional features because we were so impressed by every aspect of Cohesity.

Pros

Backups were always a pain point for us and required constant attention prior to moving to Cohesity. Cohesity makes backup and recovery simple to manage and requires no attention. It just works. This had freed up resources to focus on improvements to other areas of the business.

Cons

Integration was painless. When we first implemented Cohesity there were some reporting features that were lacking, but each new release has addressed this and we now have access to all of the reports and features that we were missing.

Reasons for choosing Cohesity

There were many factors, but the culture and philosophy of Cohesity was a big part of the decision. The price was less of a factor, but it was much cheaper than the competition.

Reasons for switching to Cohesity

We were looking to replace an aging file server and Cohesity was a perfect fit. They were able to easily migrate the data and provide additional features and functionality for a much lower cost.

Cohesity solves your backup and storage problems!

We have been very happy. We have eliminated tape backups, eliminated our legacy NAS devices, and added new features we didn't know we would even get at the time we purchased... like O365 backups and AD backups. The engineering team is aggressively working to extend the product to more use cases in the data management realm.

Pros

Cohesity has been a quick and easy win for our department. Setup and installation was quick and we were able to start backing up our VMs and legacy NAS devices. We have been able to eliminate time consuming and costly tapes by replicating our monthly's to a remote Cohesity cluster. In the future we will utilize cloud via Cohesity as well.

Cons

There have been a handful of patches that need to be administered from the command line vs the gui process that normally makes updates a snap.

Reasons for choosing Cohesity

Cohesity offered file shares in addition to backup capabilities so that we could retire legacy NAS devices. Rubrik was substantially more expensive. The Storage Craft offering was an intriguing budget option, but didn't seem quite as fleshed out as Cohesity who had much larger market presence.

Reasons for switching to Cohesity

Tired of dealing with tapes both in terms of cost and time. Legacy file servers needed replacement.

Cohesity Backup

Pros

I like that it lets you backup data to a cloud environment instead of tapes!

Cons

They seem to have struggled with their portal, I personally didn't have a problem but they are always asking for feedback on it.

Cohesity for NAS

Overall we have been able to use the product for NAS. This was our primary objective.

Pros

We love how it is scale-out. This technology is going with current NAS trends. We love having so much redundancy.

Cons

The support was lacking when we did have a problem. The internal teams lacked organization and we experienced delays in help and confusion of internal support.
