“Cohesity protects our data and makes it easily accessible in a secure way while ensuring we’re prepared for whatever comes next—from audit restores to ransomware recovery. The platform also significantly reduces our cycle time.”

VITAS chose Cohesity’s next-gen data management capabilities to simplify data management onsite and in the cloud so the company could easily migrate data across systems and use it to support quality assurance and testing.
VITAS experienced time and resource constraints with its legacy backup products, Commvault and Veeam with ExaGrid. The company’s in-house electronic medical record (EMR) application, for example, took about two days to back up.
VITAS powers two data centers with VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) technologies—and Cohesity clusters replicate backup data between them. VITAS has an egress from the secondary site to the cloud using Azure blobs for long-term retention. It also protects images—stored as objects—in its in-house EMR for compliance.
The team now spends fewer than two hours a week dealing with regular backups. Creating backup jobs and policies is also easier. In addition, VITAS has the ability to create and publish file shares for access through Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol and the use of S3 containers with Cohesity SmartFiles.
Simplify your data management for backups, file shares, object stores, dev/test, and analytics.
