Cohesity

  • Cohesity is great at finding files for day to day restore operations. It's like a "Google search tool".
  • Cohesity is great at cloning a VM into a test environment. The whole process only takes a couple min.
  • Cohesity is great at making it clear which servers are a which servers are not getting backed up.

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

  • BMR backups would be better if the client did it natively instead of Cristi integration
  • Some items in the dashboard should be hotlinked

The user interface is very intuitive and gives a good overview of the status of your backup jobs. Its a full html5 environment which can be used in very browser and is available on every device through the use of private connections to the office. When going to implement Cohesity it is as easy as putting it in the rack and configuring your network. The environment does the rest. Once configured new nodes can be added by configuring them with the correct network.We use it in a VMware vCenter environment with vCloud Director on top. Since the latest version vCloud Director is an official source for your backups. This means that resoring to vCloud Director is a posibility as well. This makes the multi-tenancy and self service capability for our users an easy to use function. It can be implemented as a plugin within the Cloud portal for users to leverage.The path to vCloud Director support took a while but now that we are there I can give it an 8.
