At a Glance
Quantium has a large Cisco environment, managing workloads with Cisco UCS across Windows servers and an Apache Hadoop server farm. The company had outgrown its Unitrends solution, and the challenges and issues were beginning to affect performance and impact DR capabilities.
Quantium had pieced together backup and recovery in its environment with numerous platforms, and stitching together reliable backups was becoming more and more cumbersome, as well as leading to frequent failures.
Quantium deployed Cohesity DataPlatform and DataProtect to back up essentially all of Quantium’s data, including workloads on SQL databases, network file shares, and all internal production systems.
With Cohesity, Quantium consolidated Unitrends, custom SQL agent backups, and SAN snapshots. In addition, four backup targets of NAS, DAS, primary SAN, and an NTFS file server were consolidated for tremendous operational efficiency.
