improved data recovery time

A true backup solution for Cisco HyperFlex, Cohesity on Cisco UCS combined with Cisco Intersight has freed our team to focus on valuable projects while resting easy because our environment is secure and data is restored in minutes. We’ve significantly simplified data management and gained new insights and efficiencies across the board, returning tremendous benefits to our entire organization.

At a Glance

The Master Group has been named one of Canada’s best-managed companies since 2010 and is the largest independent HVAC/R distributor in Canada. Since deploying Cohesity, Master has transformed its data management, improving reliability, reducing costs, and creating efficiencies.

Challenge

In addition to cutting costs, the team hoped to modernize its slow and cumbersome backups that often took more than two days and consumed extensive troubleshooting hours. Consolidated, modern infrastructure would also help IT staff more easily move from tape backups to leveraging cloud for long-term retention.

Solution

The IT team set up PoC environments to evaluate Cohesity, Commvault, and Rubrik. Since deploying Cisco HyperFlex and Cohesity DataPlatform in a single, unified architecture on Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), Master Group has transformed its data management.

Result

By replacing tape backup with CloudArchive and AWS Glacier, Master has improved operational resources by 50 percent, improved SLAs by 2x, and reduced incremental backup times by more than 80 percent. Master has transformed its data management, resulting in 900% improvement in data recovery time and 125 days of IT productivity improvements.
