Offsite storage to the cloud with easy recovery and ability to spin up in the cloud or restore back to the cohesity environment.

Cons

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.
Peter Dawe profile photo
  • File-based restores (directly back to the server) require that UAC is turned off.
  • Needs more customized reporting capability.
  • I would love to be able to create reports that are emailed regularly.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.

Cohesity was better priced, supported and honestly had more features for less money. Both operated in the same space. The ability to have NFS and Windows files share off the cohesity product was a great selling point as well
