After quickly ruling out solutions from Infrascale and Unitrends and moving toward a policy-based solution with simplified manageability, the company evaluated Cohesity and Rubrik. Cohesity was chosen based on a simple user interface, and the superior capabilities like, in the event of a disaster, restoring to the primary or a standalone cluster. The disaster recovery capabilities were a tremendous asset and bonus over the existing solution.
For ease of deployment, Santa Cruz Seaside Company chose Cohesity C2000 hyperconverged appliance powered by Cohesity’s software-defined DataPlatform and DataProtect products to modernize its backup and recovery environment. As a web-scale platform, Cohesity allowed Santa Cruz Seaside Company’s IT team to start small and grow its Cohesity cluster to address future business needs. Cohesity’s native integration with Microsoft Azure enables easy data mobility, cloud-based long-term retention and disaster recovery.
Cohesity addressed our biggest backup and recovery concerns by providing fast, resilient and reliable enterprise data protection for our growing company. We have tight windows in the hospitality industry, and Cohesity was able to perform a complete backup in one third of the time of our previous solution. Cohesity’s capabilities, such as native integration with Microsoft Azure, have been a huge bonus for our overall operation and application development.
