Cohesity is all about the customer. Where with other providers you feel like you’re hitting a brick wall, Cohesity always puts the customer at the forefront. Since deploying Cohesity at Lighthouse Resources, we’ve seen products and features integrated into the solution that we didn’t even realize we needed. Although it might sound cliché, data management with Cohesity is effortless. With data in multiple locations across a number of silos, the global search capability is a lifesaver to easily locate data and tackle challenges around mass data fragmentation in the enterprise.

At a Glance
Lighthouse Resources delivers responsibly-sourced natural resources and infrastructure solutions. Lighthouse has a highly virtualized environment running a combination of Pure and Dell EMC for primary storage, and Cisco UCS B-Series blade servers.
The company had implemented Dell EMC Avamar but began to experience increasing issues, which led to exorbitant maintenance and support costs that could no longer be supported.
After evaluating Cohesity and Rubrik, Lighthouse decided to deploy Cohesity across all locations. Lighthouse Resources is backing up all VMs and its entire SQL environment with Cohesity, along with 65% of its desktop and end points.
By moving away from Avamar, Lighthouse Resources saved $400K, and gained efficiency and ease-of-management with Cohesity. With global deduplication and compression, Lighthouse attained an impressive 100x storage reduction across its environment. Time dedicated to support and troubleshooting reduced by more than 80% and freed up IT staff to focus on mission-critical projects.
