Historically, most organizations relied on a handful of databases, from Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server to IBM DB2, to name a few. However, in recent years, there has been an exponential increase in the number of databases. The traditional relational databases are now joined by NoSQL distributed databases, in-memory, and cloud-based databases, all delivering very specific benefits. By some estimates, there are over 340+ (and growing) databases available to organizations for operating their business. And, to support their unique business requirements, organizations are using dozens, if not more of these databases. 30% of respondents in the 2020 State of Database Monitoring Survey reported managing upwards of nine database instances, and 26% of the respondents reported that each DBA is responsible for managing 100+ database instances.

Q21: How many relational database instances do you manage?

The traditional wisdom is to use the right tool for the job. This is very relevant and true in the case of the databases as well, using a purpose-built database to address specific business requirements, but database polyglot can lead to management complexities and security risk. These challenges are more prevalent when each database needs to be protected by a point-product or unique technique. The siloed approach to protect your mission-critical database instances can also impact IT’s ability to meet service-level agreements should restore become necessary.

So, how do you and your IT team get out of the way of your developers, letting them choose the best data sources for their needs without compromising your organization’s data security and compliance requirements?

Your Business Is Your Business

A modern multicloud data management solution provides the best capabilities for ensuring your business is your business while safeguarding all of your data. Your developers can use purpose-built databases as they need them, and your IT team can have confidence that each new data source is secured as soon as it’s onboarded.

  • Accelerate application development. Expedite time to market with Cohesity’s zero-cost clones. Repurpose your data and derive more value by using real backed-up data within Cohesity’s runtime environment for developing and testing applications.
  • Reduce business risk. Data masking helps IT to hide sensitive data and safely repurpose it for application development. Keep control of who has access to the backup clones and for how long.
  • Lower TCO. Eliminate data silos and reduce overall data footprint with Cohesity’s support of global variable-length sliding window deduplication that helps reduce data across the cluster and data sources. The subscription-based software services further help to reduce CapEx.
  • Future-proof investment. With our rapid pace of innovation, Cohesity has added over a dozen database data sources within a few months and plans to accelerate the development further. This allows you to continue consolidating most of your mission-critical database backups on a single platform.
