“IT teams don’t want to think about data management. Backups should just work, all the time, and restores should be fast. Cohesity data security and management platform offers protection against ransomware and rapid recovery at scale, and I can say with confidence after having to recover from a recent cyberattack, 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.
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.
Cohesity added a critical layer of security to help the company stay operational after a cyberattack. Cohesity also 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.
WithCohesity, SiteOne has reduced data management complexity as well as capacity and licensing costs. Cohesity was also instrumental in helping SiteOne restore VMs and other unstructured data within minutes after a ransomware attack.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
