time savings for full recovery of NMDP

We use Microsoft 365 with its built-in retention policies, but that isn’t robust backup. We count on Cohesity for robust, reliable backup of our Exchange Online user mailboxes onsite as an additional fail safe so if something happens—like ransomware—we have a way to quickly recover mailboxes, files, and sites. The added benefit is we can perform searches within a user’s mailbox and do recoveries directly from Cohesity. We expect to use Cohesity soon to also backup our SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams environments. With corporate data shared across these collaboration platforms, it becomes increasingly critical to be able to retain and restore from our backups.

At a Glance

Ridgeback Resources optimized its business for operational excellence, and modernized its backup and recovery infrastructure. The energy company replaced its complex backup solution with Cohesity, and IT staff has been saving time ever since.

Challenge

Ridgeback Resources’s reliance on legacy backup technology required specialist knowledge and time to operate. As the company right-sized, staff had to be able to perform multiple jobs which meant moving to a faster and simpler data management solution.

Solution

Ridgeback’s environment is completely virtualized, allowing IT to plug VMware vCenter source into a system for daily VM backups. The company is also performing SQL and Oracle backups. Ridgeback uses Cohesity CloudArchive for long-term retention (LTR), offloading data to Microsoft Azure blob storage.

Result

Cohesity’s reduced data footprint architecture allows the energy provider to not only leverage the underlying storage volumes the previous product used, but recover terabytes of disk and avoid costly hardware upgrades for years.
