Infoniqa, a Cohesity partner, made it possible to architect the platform to meet university requirements. Thanks to an agentless architecture, the new Cohesity DataPlatform was able to integrate with the old system – a VMware and Avamar ecosystem.
Cohesity delivered four appliances with four nodes each, for a total of 14 nodes with two reserve slots. 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.
After a successful Proof of Concept, the University was able to deploy quickly and gain immediate benefits from Cohesity’s high performance. “The quality of Cohesity’s and Infoniqa’s offerings were convincing because of their holistic approach. We achieved our goal of not exceeding 80 percent of the available volume six months earlier than expected. We are very satisfied with the solution,” adds Ruffieux.
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.”
