After thorough evaluation, Credit Acceptance decided to consolidate its secondary data on Cohesity, an easy-to-use secondary storage solution. As a hyperconverged platform, the IT team backed up its VMs on Cohesity, and leveraged the platform’s CPU cycles to enable instant recovery and global search on Cohesity. Additionally, Cohesity’s native Oracle RMAN integration allowed the IT team to have a single backup and recovery solution throughout its environment.
Instead of creating unnecessary data copies onto its primary storage for development, Credit Acceptance started building their test/dev environment directly on Cohesity. This approach streamlined the process and also helped to optimize primary storage capacity running on Pure. The next step in the evolution for the IT team is to enable developers with the ability to spin up their own test/dev environments instantaneously on Cohesity.
Currently, Credit Acceptance is using Cohesity for remote disaster recovery and plans to leverage Cohesity’s policy-based, native cloud integration with Amazon Glacier for long-term archival.
Cohesity filled the missing gap we had in building a software-defined storage environment and it easily integrated into our existing IT infrastructure. We experienced a dramatic performance increase with Cohesity and always had a fantastic experience with its support team.
