We have seen a dramatic improvement of day-to-day operations, greatly simplifying data management across our entire organization with Cohesity. As our requirements expand, Cohesity will allow MLHC to shorten RPO and RTO times, make our physical storage expenditure curve more shallow, move colder data to the cloud for uncluttered data tiering, and migrate file shares on a single web-scale platform with on-the-fly maintenance for stability and reliability.

At a Glance
Mother Lode Holding Company and its family of companies provide title insurance and settlement support services to the nation's real estate industry. Cohesity has quickly become a major component of the data center, backing up the entire VMware environment, providing simplified management, and ensuring rapid disaster recovery.
The company produces a large volume of small files, and data is often retained indefinitely to meet both regulatory and internal requirements. Before implementing a new solution, data backup and recovery was a tedious and cumbersome process. A full backup was not able to complete before the next full backup needed to begin, and restoring data was even more difficult
While the existing NetBackup solution was successful for a time, once the company’s data footprint began to grow, the IT team sought out other solutions. The IT team chose Cohesity for backup and recovery as well as for future use of its scale-out NAS capabilities.
The company will be able to lower costs by shifting data with lower security risks and regulatory requirements to Microsoft Azure, while being able to quickly locate and retrieve data wherever it is stored. Since deploying Cohesity, the company has seen impressive results, including more than 20x deduplication and compression, data restore times reduced by more than 98%, up to 40% TCO savings, and reduced time for Exchange backups by 75%.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
