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.

Alternatives Considered

ShadowProtect and Rubrik

Reasons for Choosing Cohesity

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

Switched From

Veritas Backup Exec

Reasons for Switching to 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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Nimble

Reasons for Choosing 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.

Reasons for Switching to 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.

The tool seems like it is in it's infancy - restoring is more difficult than it needs to be and the "instant recovery" seems great in theory, but the vMotion aspect takes way too long to be usable in our capacity.

Pros

support is very helpful for all of the issues that seem to creep up daily.

Cons

There are so many features that we ( and support ) do not seem to know about. IT would be very helpful if these features were easily accessible rather than hidden away. Furthermore we have requested this several times from support and we seem to get back generic documentation rather than insightful feedback. Many of the features are flaky and require constant monitoring / case opening to resolve. We have opened a lot of cases in our timeline thus far... many.

We had so many issue with our old backup tool that I won’t know where to start. Now with Cohesity I can finally spend my time doing something else then firefighting. Also, As a backup administrator, I know that the backup we do every day can be restored quickly in case of issue.

Pros

Our journey with Cohesity started about 18 months ago and we are still so happy with the product.
It’s working perfectly, it’s still fast and reliable as from day 1.

Cons

We are waiting for some new features to be added, like cluster support for Windows and RedHat cluster, it’s taking some time.
