Overall Satisfaction with Cohesity DataProtect

We use Cohesity across 7 locations to backup and replicate our data. Cohesity allows us to have several copies of our data in different data centers.

Pros

  • We use replication heavily to get data from one site to another, letting us get data out of areas that are more subject to natural disasters.
  • The user interface for Cohesity is simple and easy to use; folks that don't use it often have no problem picking it up quickly.

Cons

  • We attempted to use the archive feature to copy data to AWS, but this hasn't really worked out well for us.
  • I wish they would run a mailing list that informed of new versions or problems that others are seeing with the product.
  • We've been able to take backups more often.
  • We've been able to get rid of tape.
Cohesity is faster and much easier to use and understand than any of the other products. Plus, to the best of my knowledge, the others don't let you use their platform for hosting datastores for ESXi.

Cohesity DataProtect Support

Support seems to ebb and flow. There are months where it's very good,and there are months where it could be better.
