Overall Satisfaction with Cohesity

Cohesity is being used as our primary backup system for our entire firm. We have a cluster in our Data Center as well as across the country in one of our other offices.
Cohesity takes care of all our backups and restores.
  • Backups are easy to create, edit and troubleshoot.
  • Document recovery is amazingly quick with a variety of ways to do the restore. It takes less than 3 minutes to restore a deleted document to document management system.
  • Replication is also a big ticket item for us as we can replicate all our backups down to our Phoenix cluster. It all can be done overnight so there are no interruptions during the day.
  • Confirmation when doing restores wouldn't hurt at all. It would help prevent my own misclicks!
  • We are hoping for a future option of ISCSI attached drives.
  • A way to cancel restores in the case of restoring the wrong item or too many items.
  • We increased our storage at the same time reducing capital expenses with a smaller data center footprint.
  • Amazing customer service with quick response helps eliminate troubleshooting times.
We ran this two side by side in a POC and we were unanimously in favor of the Cohesity product. We felt Cohesity had a better ease of use and more options when it came to creating specific backups and or restores.
Anyone looking for a new strong backup system with ease of use, almost instant recovery times and increased storage efficiency with scale-out abilities. It simplifies backup software to make your job less stressful.
