$ paid in ransom

We are getting more work done than ever, which I attribute to both our talented team and the very strategic investments we’ve made in Cisco and Cohesity. There was already 100% consensus among our engineers that the Cohesity-Cisco solution worked reliably, was easy to use, and we were all more productive with it. Now, there’s also agreement that Cohesity is the best solution to combat ransomware attacks.

John Gaede, Director of IS, Sky Lakes Medical Center

At a Glance

As IT staff looked to replace aging data center infrastructure, Sky Lakes recognized that a joint solution from strategic partners Cisco and Cohesity would provide modern, more efficient data management. In addition, Sky Lakes was unexpectedly targeted and breached by a massive ransomware attack in October 2020, and relied on Cohesity for rapid recovery.

Challenge

As the renewal of its aging Commvault backup product neared, the IS team at Sky Lakes evaluated new backup and data management approaches that were easier to use and would drive further efficiencies.

Solution

Sky Lakes set up Cohesity to manage backup and unstructured data while continuing to use Cisco HyperFlex for primary data on Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers with Cisco Intersight as the single management user interface for both.

Result

The comprehensive, integrated Cisco–Cohesity hyperscale data management solution empowers all Sky Lakes engineers to perform backups and DR as well as handle file and object services while strengthening security, including rapid recovery from the ransomware attack.
