$ paid in ransom
"We are getting more work done than ever, which I attribute to our talented team, CDW IT orchestration excellence, 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."
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.
The smarter, simpler way to solve mass data fragmentation.
