In early March 2020, we experienced a failure of one of our SANs, leading to the loss of an important database server. Within a very short space of time we stood up a virtual machine clone of the failed (physical) server with the database attached, all running on the Cohesity platform, with no requirement for running a restore! We were subsequently able to conduct a full planned migration of that database to a new SAN cluster in a safe and controlled manner. Without Cohesity the restoration of that database to a working state would have taken a significantly longer period, which proved our decision to use Cohesity in one incident.
Anana, a Platform as a Service provider, delivers value through its ability to provide a single interface platform for multi-channel communications. Anana eliminated performance issues with backing up encrypted SQL databases and has seen tremendous benefit across its operations since deploying Cohesity.
Anana’s ever-growing storage hardware and its existing backup solution had become overly complex to manage. With the growth of data and introduction of new data sources that needed backing up, the legacy platform wasn’t providing the efficiency and features required.
Cohesity simplified and optimized data management. Anana is using Cohesity DataProtect with clusters at three data center locations, including the deployment of DataPlatform for Edge at its head office.
With Cohesity, the performance of backups changed from hours to minutes for the daily incremental backups for SQL instances. Backup time has been substantially reduced, and Anana is saving approximately 240 hours per month in SQL instance backup times alone.
