After careful consideration that included a proof of concept, the team decided to replace its legacy environment with Cohesity, a web-scale hyperconverged secondary storage solution that consolidates data protection and file storage, while providing simple integration with AWS for long-term archival.
Cloud is an essential element of Manhattan Associates’ IT infrastructure. With Cohesity CloudTier, the company can use the Cohesity platform to provision NFS datastores while moving inactive cold VMs to AWS S3 and still keep them always available to the users. Manhattan also leverages Cohesity CloudArchive for long-term archival to Amazon Glacier, eliminating the company’s dependence on tapes. The data in the cloud is deduplicated and compressed for storage efficiency in the cloud. With Cohesity’s scale-out architecture, the team was able to start small and grow its Cohesity environment on the go, yet keep it unified and simple.
As a global technology solutions provider, we like to stay ahead of the technology curve. We saw clear value in adopting Cohesity to consolidate and simplify our secondary storage infrastructure. Cohesity allows us to consolidate data protection and file storage, while providing simple integration with the public cloud for long-term archival.
