The team looked at multiple secondary storage options, including Rubrik. After much deliberation and investigation, Burris decided to deploy Cohesity, a hyperconverged secondary storage solution. Cohesity offered a complete end-to-end data management solution rather than just simple backup. The team deployed Cohesity at both its primary and DR sites. The easy management interface of Cohesity, combined with its instant Google-like wild-card search of virtual machines meant that the team could
- Easily archive data on Cohesity
- Quickly locate archived data
- Instantly restore data to address internal and external requests
Because of Cohesity’s SnapTree® technology, the Burris IT Infrastructure Team experienced a dramatic improvement in backup windows. Additionally, the team started using Cohesity as its main platform for test/dev environments. With zero-cost cloning, the Burris Applications Team could spin up data copies on Cohesity.
Cohesity helped us reduce our backup windows from around 14 hours to under 2.5 hours. This meant that our backup jobs would no longer bleed into regular work hours. The entire team is totally blown away with how easy it is to use and manage Cohesity.
