"Cohesity's comprehensive and flexible data management platform has enabled us to significantly reduce our backup and recovery risks. The solution provides consistent and smooth operations for all applications. Thanks to its modular design, it can be successively expanded and adapted to the respective requirements. In addition, we get a compartmentalized area as a test environment and numerous options for data analysis."

At a Glance
As one of the world's largest manufacturers of wind turbines, Nordex offers cost-efficient and high-performance platforms that generate electricity from wind energy. As the previous systems no longer met IT requirements, Nordex introduced a comprehensive solution from Cohesity.
Data was not fully guaranteed in the past because local backups were being created on the company’s own systems with the help of snapshots. Restoring the data was only possible with a long lead time—and also only from an entire volume, sometimes several terabytes, not specifically from individual files. In addition, the few physical rack-mounted servers still in use were not backed up at all.
Nordex now consolidates backups, file and object shares for development, and testing and analysis on Cohesity. Through the use of zero-cost clones, Nordex for the first time has its own test environment in a segregated area for IT developers. And Nordex is now able to meet the compliance requirements of ISO 27001.
Due to Cohesity’s intuitive and easy-to-use interface, data management has become much easier. The solution works smoothly and has significantly reduced the risk of data loss. In addition, its modular design allows it to be expanded step-by-step with new functions, scaled to Nordex’s 110 worldwide locations and customized for each region.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
