Overall Satisfaction with Cohesity Helios

We were backing up about 160 TB to tape per week. We are still moving over to Cohesity, however, we will not have the need to have the hardware related to tapes next year. Also, the money we spend on new versions of tapes is not going towards more clusters. In Cohesity, my backups are running faster and I have more frequent crash consistent data.

Pros

  • Cohesity will save us money, time, and manpower.
  • We will have quick redundancy to AWS for our Cohesity node.
  • This tool is very straightforward and clean. The menus are not over complicated or cluttered.

Cons

  • Cohesity is working on this, however, I would like to see a more expanded KB section.
We were backing up about 160 TB to tape per week. We will be able to eliminate our off site tape storage, and all expenses related to that. This will save us time and money each day. I have not come across any areas that we could not use Cohesity.

Overall Satisfaction Continued

  • We are still in the implementation phase, however we have seen that we will be able to better back up our databases.
We have been using NetBackup for many years. Cohesity is far less expensive and more simple. We will be able to bypass to the maintenance costs and service costs.
