time savings

Not only do we have a modern backup and recovery solution that works, Cohesity is also able to extend to native integration for cloud, file and objects, security, and Dev/Test. We deployed Cohesity Helios to manage our multi-cluster environment, giving us global management and ransomware protection from edge to cloud from a single, unified platform.

At a Glance

The City of Hamilton stabilized its enterprise backup and recovery with Cohesity and is reaping even greater benefits with additional capabilities and features of Cohesity Helios in its environment.

Challenge

The City of Hamilton found it difficult to achieve backups in a reasonable window and wanted to simplify its overly complex environment to resolve issues with frequent backup failures.

Solution

Hamilton deployed Cohesity DataProtect and DataPlatform in each data center, similar to a VMware stretch cluster, allowing the city to leverage Cohesity between the two sites, and move data natively without running in VMware across both data centers.

Result

File server backups went from 12 hours to 10 minutes, and Hamilton’s backup window has gone from up to five days to five hours. In the previous Veeam environment, two weeks of Exchange backups used more than 17TB of disk, but with Cohesity use only 5TB for an entire month.
