Cohesity

Cohesity is best suited for a highly virtualized environment, although they do have agents for bare metal. But who runs non-virtualized workloads these days anyhow? Not any organization which would invest in best class backup, anyhow.We find that the search features make file-level restores so much easier -- now a partial filename is all we need to get going, and we can see a file's change history by date so we no longer have to hunt for the last changed version. You will want 10GB network capability for this solution to really shine -- each node has dual SFP+ connections for data.

  • Granular recovery search options, easy to find specific files or systems to recover (or SQL DB).

  • EMC recoverpoint does it's core functions of DVR like replication extremely well. It integrates perfectly with VMware vsphere and SRM and is relatively simple to configure.
  • EMC recoverpoint handles failover and failback very well, either manually or through the SRM interface.
  • EMC recoverpoint physical is relatively easy to run once installed and configured!!

Cons

Cohesity

  • Replication performance - We needed support to provide some customizations in order to get our replication to work properly to another offsite cluster. We have been told that this issue is fixed in the newest general release.
  • Support - I would characterize the support as very good, but in a few instances I could tell my support agent needed to go higher up his chain to get clarification on features. I believe Cohesity is rapidly growing their support infrastructure as they put more hardware in the field.

  • EMC RecoverPoint isn't easier to install and or set up. You will need to know how to zone, understand SAN and networking.
  • It's hard to understand how many disks to use based on the RTO and RPO for the replication set.
  • Will still need professional service and training to really understand how to use the software.

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.

They are always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The support is easy to reach and the reaction times are on point. Several times I had called with my system being down and the person who answered the call would require a support rep call me back. Some of these call backs would be 1-2 hours later. When needed, the support will scale up to deliver the right support for the right cases. When asking for detailed information about a problem they always help you to understand the problem and the underlying causes better.

Alternatives Considered

Cohesity

We looked at Veeam and although it's a great product when we priced out the licensing of both primary and disaster datacenters it became much too expensive.Rubrik is a great product and very similar to Cohesity. In the end, Cohesity had a secondary storage play as well as a better UI and better compatibility with lower tier cloud storage. We also like the way Cohesity did protection jobs vs Rubrik's virtual machine centric backup.CommVault is a product we still use today due to its massive features and the ability for bare metal backups. Cohesity does a much better job in the area of UI simplicity, virtual backup ease, and ease of management.

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

Zerto was selected to compete against recoverpoint.. Zerto was a virtual solution that doesn't work for physical solutions. Recoverpoint was chosen over Zerto because of the need to replicate and protect physical systems, versus just VMs. Zerto is under strong consideration as the environment is becoming more virtualize through the next few months.

Return on Investment

Cohesity

  • It has freed up 40 hours a month of our service desk staff since they were able to stop focusing so intently on tape management.
  • We have gained time back on the engineers since they are not working tickets 10 hours a week just on backup issues.

Dell EMC RecoverPoint

  • We perform DR test in every six months and recoverpoint (vRPA) simplified our DR strategy. The solution saved lot of time and helped our team to minimize the DR window. It provides a reliable and repeatable automated DR workflow that increases data protection and recovery operational efficiencies. Silent test recovery and replicate VMs without impacting production site and bring down our RPO/RTOs to meet business needs is one of the key benefit.
