locations protected for business continuity

“IT teams don’t want to think about data management. Backups should just work, all the time, and restores should be fast. Cohesity has many data management features including protection against ransomware and rapid recovery, and there’s no question in my mind, it works as advertised.”

David Bannister, Vice President of Technology Services, SiteOne Landscape Supply

At a Glance

SiteOne, the largest wholesale distributor of landscape supplies in the U.S. has not only reduced IT complexity and improved operational efficiency with Cohesity, but maintained business continuity after a ransomware attack.

Challenge

IT staff managed both virtual machine (VM) infrastructure as well as Veeam and Data Domain infrastructure, which required continual investments in new licenses and forklift array upgrades to add capacity. One employee spent most of his day, every day, reviewing backup issues and troubleshooting.

Solution

Cohesity helped speed backups and restores for VMs, and soon after, its Windows files shares. Because Cohesity is cloud native, SiteOne quickly enabled local backups to be archived to Amazon S3 for long-term storage and retrieval. Cohesity also added a critical layer of security to help the company stay operational in the event of a cyberattack.

Result

With Cohesity, SiteOne has reduced data management complexity as well as capacity and licensing costs. Because the solution is simpler to use, anyone on the IT staff can quickly perform backups and restores. Cohesity was also instrumental in helping SiteOne restore VMs and other unstructured data within minutes after a ransomware attack.
