CapEx cost savings

Cohesity’s native integration with Azure could not be matched, and gave us tremendous flexibility for how to manage our secondary data without maintaining a separate piece of hardware. Cohesity Cloud Edition will provide the ability to recover snapshots seamlessly, fully recover VMs directly into Azure, and give us flexibility for using secondary offsite copies with Azure and Cohesity Cloud Edition. Cohesity has greatly simplified the entire process of managing and consolidating secondary data in a hybrid cloud environment.

Challenge

Brown was experiencing challenges with the existing legacy solution, and there were a lot of moving parts to ensure a backup completed. Upgrades were extremely painful and the time and effort required by the IT team for troubleshooting was becoming tedious and cumbersome.

Solution

Brown deployed Cohesity C2500 hyperconverged nodes with Cohesity DataPlatform Cloud Edition with integration to Microsoft Azure for disaster recovery.

Result

Capex cost savings were near 50%, and Brown saved upwards of $75K per year in network licensing and additional maintenance cost savings.
