Cohesity

We were backing up about 160 TB to tape per week. We will be able to eliminate our off site tape storage, and all expenses related to that. This will save us time and money each day. I have not come across any areas that we could not use Cohesity.

  • Cohesity provides a very intuitive user interface. I was able to provide restore training to our other admins in ten minutes.
  • Indexed file search makes it extremely easy to find all snapshots of that contain a file even if the end user does not have an exact file name.
  • It is extremely easy to set up and monitor backup jobs. We also easily set up alerts to email us in event of an issue

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.

  • I would like to see Cohesity have the ability to do a file level restore from a server using a dynamic disk.
  • Cohesity needs a way to backup SQL databases without an agent.
  • Cohesity cannot run a backup of a single VM.

Alternatives Considered

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

Cohesity only has few minor short comings when compared to VEEAM but for the price you get the software and the hardware with Cohesity.
