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.

At a Glance

The Santa Cruz Seaside Company has been making people scream, laugh, and create memories for more than a century. The company has moved many operations to the cloud including the adoption of Microsoft OneDrive for all employee workstations. Cohesity allows the company to easily manage its on-premises and cloud infrastructure.

Challenge

It not only took seven to nine hours to complete a full nightly backup, but often, required the need to restart backup jobs in case the application timed-out or stopped responding. Due to slow and clunky legacy backup solutions, the backup jobs would bleed into the operational hours, and often triggering the SQL servers to disconnect completely.

Solution

Cohesity allows the IT team to start small and grow with the flexibility to address future business needs. Cohesity’s native integration with Microsoft Azure enables easy data mobility, cloud-based long-term retention, and disaster recovery.

Result

SQL protection is consistent across the environment and the company has achieved RPOs of 15 minutes for its transactional POS servers. Cohesity has also simplified AD operations, using the platform for AD backups to enable granular, object-level protection across the entire AD environment, which was not previously possible.
