Gartner – How to Leverage Public Cloud IaaS for Backup and Recovery

Cohesity's native integration with Azure could not be matched, and gave us tremendous flexibility for how to manage our secondary data without maintaining a separate piece of hardware. Cohesity Cloud Edition will provide the ability to recover snapshots seamlessly, fully recover VMs directly into Azure, and give us flexibility for using secondary offsite copies with Azure and Cohesity Cloud Edition. Cohesity has greatly simplified the entire process of managing and consolidating secondary data in a hybrid environment.

Chris Menard, Lead Storage Administrator

Cohesity’s native cloud integration allowed us to seamlessly archive data to Microsoft Azure blob storage in a secure and encrypted manner, using simple yet powerful storage policies. This has helped us reduce our reliance on tape significantly. With Cohesity, our entire environment is backed up to the hour – every hour. What makes Cohesity so great is its ease of use, especially in recovering data almost immediately, running virtual machines straight from a snapshot, and finally, the incredibly responsive support team at Cohesity.
