Faster dev/test patch testing
“Like many enterprise environments, we at Clayton County Public Schools were looking to update our 3-2-1 backup strategy to protect our data from increasingly sophisticated ransomware attacks. The simplicity and convenience of the Cohesity FortKnox SaaS solution were just what we needed to achieve this, while reducing operational complexity and meeting demanding SLAs. With FortKnox, we now have an isolated, immutable copy of our critical data in the cloud without having to manage an offsite data vault ourselves, saving us a lot of time and budget that can be utilized to better serve our students and teachers.”
CCPS chose Cohesity for a single and secure data management solution, for simplicity and cost savings. The district also recently implemented Cohesity FortKnox, a SaaS data isolation and recovery solution hosted in AWS that provides an immutable copy of data in a Cohesity-managed cloud vault.
CCPS has witnessed a dramatic change in technology, including the move to virtualized environments and the increased threat of ransomware. At the time, the IT team relied on solutions from Dell EMC and Data Domain. The legacy environment was not able to back up and restore VMs, and as most of its entire server environment was running VMware, a new solution was needed.
CCPS was on the verge of deploying Veeam when the IT team learned about Cohesity. The ability to manage their entire data environment from a single, secure multicloud data platform, along with the significant cost savings it offered, drove CCPS to choose Cohesity. Cohesity FortKnox provides an added layer of security against ransomware and other cybersecurity threats.
With Cohesity FortKnox, CCPS meets requirements for cybersecurity insurance, and ensures an additional layer of protection against ransomware. CCPS realized greater simplicity for time savings and business continuity, as well as using Cohesity for dev/test to gain operational efficiency.
