Cohesity has met and exceeded our expectations. With global data reduction at 26x, Cohesity is nothing like other solutions we’ve tested that pale in comparison and is a one-stop shop for managing data. We have now consolidated our backup and recovery environment to a single pane of glass, enabling simple administration and effortless management. Cohesity has the capability for near-instantaneous recovery, spinning up a virtual server, backing up its data, and then migrating back over to vCenter in about 15 seconds.

At a Glance

The IT team for the City of Suffolk is tasked to manage infrastructure across all City departments. With Cohesity deployed, the City has greatly simplified the complexity of its previous legacy environment.

Challenge

The City was experiencing pain points when it came to reliable backups and recovery, and the existing combination of Dell Quest Rapid Recovery, NetApp, Tintri, and Data Domain was becoming overly cumbersome to manage.

Solution

The City set up an off-the-grid lab which enables the IT team to replicate production or test servers for a rapid build environment for dev/test.

Result

The IT team has solved the issue of frequent backup failures and can easily spin up data on the fly as needed. Cohesity is backing up the entire production environment, from CAD dispatching applications for public safety, to Epicor for Human Resources.
