“Cohesity has improved our backup and restore speeds by 80 percent. When we need to recover a backup, it takes minimal time to find the data that needs to be restored and in total, it usually takes not more than five or ten minutes to find and restore a backup, which is a tremendous enhancement to our environment.”

At a Glance
DK Software is a leading provider of business solutions software in Iceland. With Cohesity, the company has increased the frequency of backups, 3x better storage efficiency, 80 percent faster backups and restores, and will see ROI in under two years.
DK Software previously had an outsourced, hosted backup/restore solution. It was in discussions with its existing vendor to upgrade, but while the vendor was keen to continue with a hosted solution, DK Software wanted to take more ownership of its data, and have a greater degree of control.
DK Software deployed Cohesity, spread across two sites in an active-passive setup. Cohesity replication ensures fast disaster recovery, as well as provides an air-gap between the sites so that there is no possibility of cross-contamination of malware. Four nodes contain 96 TB of capacity.
DK Software has calculated ROI for the Cohesity solution to be under two years, in part due to Cohesity’s variable-block data duplication and class-leading capacity efficiency. Backups now can be started at four-hour intervals – a 6x increase in frequency. DK Software is seeing 3x better storage efficiency than anticipated.
