Comparing Cohesity vs Veritas NetBackup

logo

Veritas

Minimize Risk from Cyberattacks

icon

Reduced attack surface: Hidden, immutable catalog in certified, hardened form factors with locally applied 2FA to protect against stolen passwords

icon

Compromises: Build-your-own s/w + h/w solution, or choose space-inefficient appliances, both unable to locally verify admin identity

icon

Reliable early detection of ransomware attacks: Includes entropy analysis to reduce false positives on metadata anomalies

icon

Alert fatigue: More false positives degrade staff response time to stopping real attacks.

icon

Frequent, reliable backups: Automatically scheduled and parallelized backups with online upgrades no single failure points

icon

Higher risk of data loss: Lower uptime/resiliency and manual policy configuration can lead to less frequent and missed backups, requiring time-consuming troubleshooting

icon

Strict access control: Quorum support for multi-person concurrence on sensitive actions

icon

Greater risk of rogue actions: No quorum controls to prevent unilateral admin action, such as maliciously exporting data

Reduce Downtime with Rapid Recovery

icon

Restore production and populate recovery sandboxes faster: Paralleized restores and scalable “instant” restore of VMs and databases

icon

Slower recovery: Minimal live mounting of VMs only, slow snapshot consolidation processing and single-threaded restores

icon

Get back to business fast: Resume NAS file sharing “instantly” without restore and/or rapidly restore to primary storage

icon

Files offline longer: Cannot immediately put file shares online; slow restore to primary

icon

Production-grade I/O reliability: Instant recovery not interrupted by reboot or hardware failure

icon

VM crash risk: VMs can’t stay mounted through media server loss or reboot

Maximize Data Value

icon

Speed data reuse: Rapid restore provides data immediately for dev/test or analytics

icon

Slow and limited access to data: Less scalable live mounting and restore

icon

Illuminate dark data: Simple cross-cluster content search

icon

Valuable or sensitive data is hard to find: Complex add-on search

icon

Data masking: Anonymize sensitive information before it leaves the backup repository

icon

Compliance exposure: Dev/test workflows create risk without masking

icon

Single secure data management platform: Enable multiple use cases including file & object services, DR and copy data management with a reduced attack surface

icon

Just a backup: Traditional single-purpose architecture requires additional silos to address use cases beyond backup and recovery

Better TCO

icon

Fair, transparent licensing: Subscriptions metered by the back-end capacity with easy to understand capacity reporting

icon

Retroactive license audits and high maintenance: Must monitor front-end license use and back-end capacity. Expanding and maintaining existing licenses can cost more than starting new with Cohesity

icon

20% more space efficient than NetBackup including across cloud: Typical for most workloads due to superior sliding-window dedupe, Zstd compression1

icon

And yet 25% more space required than Cohesity: Results from older compression methods and less precise tracking of duplicate segments.

icon

Free up staff time: With modern, easy, yet powerful management and automated optimization

icon

Labor-intensive: Antiquated management complexity requires excessive troubleshooting

icon

Future proof: Mix between h/w vendors, node types, without an expensive lock-in

icon

Forklift upgrades required: 3rd party non-scale-out repositories or homogeneous clusters require all nodes to be replaced at once.
