Overall Satisfaction with Cohesity Helios

Use cases for Cohesity include secondary storage of file shares and backups for our environment. We are also doing some test and dev, but the secondary storage and backups are superb; would give a very high recommendation for anyone looking into hyper-converged secondary storage!

Pros

  • Pulling backups of files, VMs, and other services couldn't be simpler. Very intuitive and customizable!
  • We are using profile redirection and Cohesity handles this well, glad to make use of efficient network storage!
  • Dedup & compression have time, energy, resources, and lower overall costs while raising quality of service!

Cons

  • Could be simpler to do Test & Dev
  • Looking forward to a mobile application
  • Analytics are nice, could be more straight forward
Well suited for small or large environment, easy to add nodes and increase hardware capacities, tremendous flexibility in backup and secondary storage.

Overall Satisfaction Continued

  • Positive impact in increased quality of service for end users
  • Positive impact in decreased resource footprint in data center
  • Positive impact in increased retention & security of backups
