savings with cloud enablement
"With Cohesity, we’ve cut our data center costs in half by eliminating legacy backup products and tiering replicated data in the cloud — first to Amazon S3, then to Glacier after 30 days."
Since deploying Cohesity for backup and recovery and seamlessly replicating that data to AWS for archival, the pharmaceutical company has cut its data management costs by 50 percent, improved efficiency, and regained staff time for innovation while boosting peace of mind.
Facing a costly forklift upgrade of Data Domain licensing and support across its worldwide data centers, Novartis began to evaluate newer backup solutions for its databases and VMs that would seamlessly integrate with AWS.
Novartis rolled out Cohesity and AWS for backup and recovery in three locations — two in the U.S. and one in Europe. All geo-locations now replicate from Cohesity to AWS, archiving data to Amazon S3, and using Cohesity policy to manage the Novartis data in Amazon S3 and S3 Glacier.
Cloud-native Cohesity and AWS deployment enabled Novartis to eliminate data center hardware and space. Additionally, Cohesity provides ransomware protection with features that deter and detect threats as well as enable rapid recovery at scale to any point in time.
