At a Glance

Cohesity scalable, hyperconverged secondary solution reduces communications provider data center footprint and costs.

Challenge

Government contracts required XO Communications to archive the most recent three years of logs, backups and audits, which dramatically increased the company’s data protection needs.

Solution

XO Communications deployed Cohesity C2300 and C2500 hyperconverged node appliances with Cohesity DataProtect backup and recovery software. Now it can clone and run virtual machines—including in the test/dev environment—directly on Cohesity.

Result

Cost-efficient Cohesity delivers unlimited scalability, helping the company increase storage capacity while concurrently reducing CapEx. The company also lowered OpEx due to Cohesity’s ease of management.
