"Little did we know that Cohesity was going to literally rescue Sky Lakes from having to pay a ransom. Cohesity just flat-out worked. We ultimately recovered all of our servers, and Cohesity worked time and time again throughout that process."
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.
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.
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.
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.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
