reduction in storage

Cohesity helped us eliminate our existing storage filer and it does everything we need it to do for backups—all for 30–40 percent less than other data management solutions. It’s fun to work with a company actively delivering capabilities fast, like backup for Microsoft 365, that provide real value to customers at no additional cost.

Josh Van Camp, Network Administration Supervisor, Gleaner Life Insurance Company

At a Glance

Gleaner Life Insurance Society not only replaced its existing backup product, but also its legacy NAS solution. With Cohesity as its converged, software-defined data management platform for backup and scale-out NAS, Gleaner lowered TCO and is well-positioned for future IT modernization success.

Challenge

Gleaner relied heavily on its hyperconverged infrastructure and downtime could cause significant business interruption. The company recognized diversification with complementary modern data management would enhance, extend, and further protect its business data.

Solution

Gleaner IT staff evaluated Cohesity against Rubrik and Storage Craft. Rubrik did not offer scale-out NAS, which Gleaner needed to replace as its previous technology had been consuming IT time to the point where staff had begun manually removing duplicate files from shared drives to save space.

Result

For Gleaner, Cohesity is the best mix of price and features. Cohesity’s simplified approach to data management reduces IT operational headaches, allowing staff to spend 20 percent more free time on important tasks, and it works fast.
