Hours to Stand Up Environment

My main concern with any technology we acquire is that we don't need additional manpower to run it. Cohesity didn’t take much time or effort to install, and day after day, it's simple to use as an enterprise-class, reliable data management platform for backing up our mission-critical workloads.

Danny Yeo, Director Computing Technology & Services, Life Sciences IT, Brigham Young University

At a Glance

BYU has simplified and strengthened its data protection while reducing its data center footprint. Cohesity was a great fit because it simplified operations on-prem and in the cloud while delivering security, peace of mind, and overall being a superior product.

Challenge

The existing solution at BYU was not ideal, requiring manpower resources to monitor and ensure that backups were reliable. The IT team began to investigate modern data management solutions including Cohesity and Rubrik, choosing Cohesity for simplified data management.

Solution

BYU backs up its research and administrative workloads—VMware VMs from VxRail and Nutanix—to Cohesity. BYU uses Nutanix to support classroom instruction workloads, particularly Nutanix Frame virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Result

BYU expects to always operate a hybrid IT environment, so both data management ease of use and cloud integration are important. The team is excited for capabilities like archiving, protecting cloud workloads, and SiteContinuity, all of which are very easy to implement and configure. There is no added complexity to adopt these additional multicloud workloads.
