reduction in backup footprint

Cohesity has enabled us to shed the weight and challenges of our legacy backup environment and shift to a hybrid cloud solution, using a single Cohesity interface to manage all storage policies and our offsite backups in Azure. We have not only realized enormous cost savings, but have been supported by Cohesity every step of the way to achieve faster recovery times, improved backup snapshot frequency, and almost immediate data recovery.

At a Glance

Schneider Electric deployed a data management solution for worldwide operations and gained cost, time and efficiency benefits.

Challenge

A full backup on Veritas NetBackup took more than 40 hours and tape backup storage and maintenance costs were more than $20K per year. With more than 300TB of data, and growth at 12% per year, Schneider sought a solution with rapid implementation.

Solution

As an early adopter of Azure Archive Blob Storage, Schneider was able to seamlessly integrate Azure and Cohesity, to not only save costs, but also increase the value of long-term data retention and recovery.

Result

Schneider immediately saw cost savings of up to $60K per year, and will see a total ROI within five years. The company will save $20K per year alone for maintenance costs.
