A global bank recently reviewed its entire data management strategy, with a focus on reducing data silos and efficiently and securely managing large volumes of unstructured data. It urgently needed to enable secure backup for its voice recording archives, containing more than 1PB of data.
Operational cost was a main driver for the project, and the bank set out to identify a solution for a lift and shift migration that would result in reduced complexity and increased time savings. Previously, it could take several months to over a year for a full restore or copying in order for data migration to complete.
The bank did a Proof of Concept (PoC) with Cohesity before deciding to move forward and implement Cohesity for data management of its voice archiving system replacing Dell EMC Isilon, as well as for continued conversion of its tape assets to digital format.
The primary benefits for the bank were cost savings and scalability. With hundreds of millions of files, and without the ability to deduplicate, Cohesity proved invaluable for file and object services. The web-scale capability of Cohesity infrastructure is comparable to AWS Glacier and cost competitive with other low-tier cold storage.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
