“Cohesity has improved our IT services for clients. We can offer backup as a service for on-prem applications as well as SaaS applications like Microsoft 365. Ransomware protection gives our customers peace of mind, and cloud backup eliminates the considerable costs of running a dedicated backup data center.”
Steffen Maurer, Head of IT Services, GES Systemhaus
At a Glance
GES provides IT services for the 70+ companies leasing space in the Kalle-Albert Industrial Park in Wiesbaden, Germany. Anticipating a need for new data management services like Microsoft 365 backups, ransomware protection, and individual file restores, GES decided to replace its on-prem backup solution with Cohesity.
Previously GES operated three separate data centers—production, disaster recovery, and backup, which was cost prohibitive. The tipping point came as customers started asking GES to back up their Microsoft 365 data, not possible with the existing HPE Data Protector solution.
Cohesity BaaS running on AWS replaces the backup data center for GES, at a lower cost. Ransomware protection reassures customers that their data is safe. Cohesity protects VMware virtual machines, SAP data, and Microsoft 365 workloads.
In the event of a ransomware attack on a customer, GES can restore clean data from Cohesity’s immutable backups, stored in the cloud. Cohesity has improved IT services for clients, and now GES can offer BaaS for on-prem applications as well as cloud-based applications and data like Microsoft 365 on a single platform.
