It could’ve been COVID, ransomware, or a flood, but getting our essential systems back up and running was crucial. Having seen other backup solutions, Cohesity was the simplest and easiest to use with the best data management capabilities. The search functionality, and how it can tightly couple with virtual infrastructure and integrate into Microsoft 365 was really important for us. What would take days now takes minutes or hours, which is very important for a small IT team.

At a Glance
Stockport NHS Foundation Trust required a solution to help it deliver a more capable backup and recovery operation for its hospitals and a range of community health services, while also prioritizing security, simplicity, and data governance.
A growing number of backup failures occurred and when combined with the overly complex processes for restores, a change was required. All-new infrastructure had to meet stringent UK regulations around data handling, privacy, and security.
The IT team approached partner CDW for guidance on sourcing a scalable, future-proof backup and recovery solution that would increase security, streamline compliance, and was cloud-ready. Cohesity on Cisco UCS was quickly identified as a clear choice due to its exceptional disaster recovery and security functionality.
With Cohesity now supporting physical, virtual, and SQL workloads, backups are now performing far beyond expectations. The Trust is using Cohesity’s point-in-time feature with incremental backups to do high-performance restores. The solution covers all the restore and management needs via one single management console, a contrast to the three previously installed vendor products.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
