improvement in incremental backup

We were convinced by the quality of Cohesity’s and Infoniqa’s offering due to the holistic approach. As an emerging market leader, Cohesity is agile and responds quickly to our needs and requirements.

Michel Ruffieux, Storage Backup Manager

At a Glance

Founded in 1537, the University of Lausanne has more than 15,000 students, 5,000 employees, and 2,700 researchers. With approximately two million documents, it currently manages more than 22PB of logical data.

Challenge

The existing backup system had to be combined with the hyperconverged backup solution to be redesigned to cover the entire virtual infrastructure.

Solution

The university realized space efficiency improvements with Cohesity, allowing for 126 times more logical data to be stored than the previous backup solution. More nodes can also be added in the future, to increase performance and capacity linearly.

Result

The new backup solution for the hyperconverged infrastructure is faster, more powerful, more automated and more scalable. Aside from deploying a modern backup and recovery solution, the University was also able to save cost.
