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.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

Are you in the Cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, other) -- you won't be able to use SRM. This does not give visibility into block and/or object storage.Do you have high-performance, multi-tiered storage solutions from vendors like HP, Dell, IBM, or others? Do you have a VMware environment hosted by your shared storage solution? Then this is the tool to link everything together for you.

Pros

Cohesity

  • Easy to use and setup new backup and restore jobs.
  • Extremely fast recovery time, can spin a VMware backup VM up in well under a minute.
  • Granular recovery search options, easy to find specific files or systems to recover (or SQL DB).

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.

Usability

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.

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.

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.
Jay Stelmach | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM)

  • Real-time monitoring and alerting to surpass those of native vSphere and in some occasions, better than manufacturer written software.
  • Historical monitoring of environment with charts and graphs to assist with ever changing environment loads.
