The ease-of-use in implementing Cohesity’s software-defined solution demonstrated we had made the best choice for modern backup and recovery. Once we were up and running, Cohesity changed my entire perception of data management, and we realized we could leverage Cohesity for much more than just backup and recovery. Now we see Cohesity is the solution we need to drive our digital transformation process and deliver a better service in the West Midlands for years to come.

At a Glance
Founded in 1974, West Midlands Fire Service is the UK’s second largest metropolitan fire department. The Service needed to update its IT strategy and identify a solution partner that embraced next-generation backup and recovery.
The Service had already purchased Nutanix to replace its existing virtualized primary storage environment with hyperconverged infrastructure. It now required a backup and recovery solution to seamlessly integrate with its existing architecture.
After evaluating several providers, the Service chose Cohesity for its data management capabilities that extend beyond just backup and recovery, and its existing support for Nutanix’s AHV environment that runs its enterprise applications.
Since deployment, the speed of backup and recovery has been one of the most significant changes for the Service, freeing up much of the day-to-day administration burden.
