Overall Satisfaction with Cohesity Helios

We are using Cohesity Data Platform mainly as a backup and restore and disaster recovery system for our clustered VMWare virtual environment. But also as a Platform for archives and other file services. The use case was clearly to replace an old Data Management, Backup, and Disaster Recovery platform. With Cohesity Data Platform, we have a great toolset for managing our fast-growing Data with one single User-interface
  • Fast and seamles Backups
  • Using existing interfaces like VMWare API
  • Restore of a complete VM can be done in really only a few minutes
  • SQL has still some bugs
  • Enineering needs sometime to long to react on bugs with business impact
  • Depending on support department, the quality is changing
  • The pricing options on Cohesity are very interesting/competetive
  • It's a rack space saving installation
  • fast restores = business quick working again
It's a little depending on where the support department is located and of course to whom you are talking. But in general, support is reacting in most cases in a very fast manner. The technical quality of the answers and solutions is very good. Very often they can advise also in areas that are not "Cohesity" specific but helpful (Like VMWare part of the installation etc.)

Do you think Cohesity Helios delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Cohesity Helios's feature set?


Did Cohesity Helios live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Cohesity Helios go as expected?


Would you buy Cohesity Helios again?


The Cohesity platform with its user interface is easy to implement, rack space-saving, and easy to use on a daily business basis. Backup jobs and policies are easy to define, multiple machines and objects can be grouped for the same tasks. In general, Cohesity makes backup admins' lives much easier.
Well, as given by the Name, Cohesity is great for Data Management including Backup, Restore, and of course disaster recovery. Also, Archive Services with different protocols are easy to use. There are many other features on the list and this list is growing from day to day, but we are not using them (yet).
