There have been bumps, especially as they have grown. But they have handled them very well and I believe are behind them now. It's easy to get someone that can help and resolve the issues. If it's something that needs a system change, they have worked through that and submitted to get it taken care of; along with interfacing with the engineering team to get that done.

The support from Cohesity is done from real engineers. Very often you get a solution response at the first contact. I have, until today, never seen that a case has been opened by "log a route" without any useful feedback. They have 24/7 support and if necessary you can reach a support engineer within a very short time.
The resolution time and quality are awesome!
