What Is Cohesity?

Cohesity ushers in a new era in data management that solves a critical challenge facing businesses today: mass data fragmentation. The vast majority of enterprise data backups, archives, file shares, object stores, and data used for test/dev and analytics sits in fragmented infrastructure silos that makes it hard to protect, expensive to manage, and difficult to analyze. Cohesity consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform, spanning on-premises, cloud, and the edge.

"A great solution for so many workloads"

Comments: Overall Cohesity has been one of the best vendors we have ever worked with. Their support team started very small and I usually got the same 2 or 3 customer service reps. Now they are much larger but I still get the 1-on-1 attention I need from their team.

Pros: Cohesity is first a fantastic backup product. We went from four backup solutions to just one. It gives us full off site DR capability by archiving to Azure. We protect many workloads such as VMware, SQL, Office 365 and file shares.
Beyond that Cohesity is an amazing platform for test and development, file services and marketplace apps.

Cons: Getting up and running had a few glitches and it took a couple days to fully grasp the dependencies but once those were taken care of it has run very smoothly. Occasionally bugs will surface during new feature releases but I have not had any problems staying on the LTS track.

"Cohesity for Backup and Fileshares"

Comments: Eliminated backup tapes and backup exec. Major win. Replaced legacy NAS devices.

Pros: Cohesity has been very easy to install with an intuitive interface. The development team is adding new features and growing capabilities.

Cons: There were a couple of customizations that needed to be done in order to make a connection to our legacy NAS. I would have thought this functionality would have worked better out of the box. I was told that our customization has been added to the current release so that may not impact future customers.

"Look no further"

Comments: Overall experience has been great, no complaints anywhere.

Pros: The visibility of your total foot print and management tools there of saves hours per day.

Cons: Its fast growing company so the update speed is fast. If you are looking for a static software for backups...this is not the one.

"Cohesity Backup"

Pros: I like that it lets you backup data to a cloud environment instead of tapes!

Cons: They seem to have struggled with their portal, I personally didn't have a problem but they are always asking for feedback on it.
