Lower Administrative Time

The joint Pure-Cohesity solution allowed us to get to a high level of consolidation. Our team spent a lot of time reviewing data management solutions and Cohesity performed even better than we expected. After deploying Cohesity, we invested in more capabilities within 12 months, and we look forward to leveraging Cohesity for greater cloud capabilities, including Backup as a Service for Microsoft 365.

Marc Jones, Head of IT Infrastructure Services, Principality Building Society

At a Glance

Principality is the UK's sixth largest building society, with just under £11 billion in assets. The organization needed a reliable and effective IT infrastructure, in order to best focus on delivering value for its customers. Principality consolidated solutions, decreased data recovery times by over 90%, and reduced TCO.

Challenge

Principality Building Society was assigned the challenge of refreshing and updating key elements of its IT infrastructure. The IT team needed to consolidate existing storage platforms, and to improve backup services.

Solution

Principality uses Cohesity for data backup and file shares across three key protocols: SMB for desktop, NFS for backend storage, and S3 to present storage to applications. The Cohesity file-sharing service was introduced alongside a new solution from Pure Storage.

Result

Principality is now using Cohesity backup across VMware, SQL Server, and Microsoft Exchange. Cohesity also works alongside Pure Storage, with Principality archiving some of its backups to Azure. The IT team quickly realized the benefits of Cohesity’s simplified and consolidated approach.
