eSilicon was not only managing billions of files, we were also doing complete chip design and manufacturing operations in the cloud, something no other company has done before. From all levels of management, we were confident Cohesity was the solution partner to carry us forward and meet our requirements for cloud-native data management for several petabytes of data across our global locations. Cohesity enabled eSilicon to complete our move to the Google Cloud for true elasticity, helping us deliver optimized solutions to our customers.

At a Glance
eSilicon made the decision to adopt a cloud-first global strategy. The nature of the semiconductor industry is that workloads can be spiky, and the company recognized the need for true elasticity and cloud was the best option forward for the business.
eSilicon works on individual projects with hundreds of millions of NFS-based files. Previously, the on-premises data centers had data backed up to tape using Commvault. Recovering data could take numerous weeks and was becoming expensive and inefficient.
After looking at solutions from other cloud-native backup software vendors and Cohesity, eSilicon was confident Cohesity was going to commit executive support in order to meet the necessary requirements for its groundbreaking infrastructure.
With Cohesity, eSilicon gains tremendous value from simplicity of management, including data recovery. In addition, by using a Cohesity policy to migrate select data to a Coldline Storage tier from Google, ongoing storage costs are minimized.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
