Cohesity saves a lot of time for our engineers because it automates tasks we used to do manually, like replication and archiving. If any virtual machine or SQL Server is encrypted in an attack, we can instantly restore a snapshot to any point in time.”
Director of Application Support, Spring Independent School District
We experienced a failure of one of our SANs, leading to the loss of an important database server. Within a very short space of time, we stood up a virtual machine clone of the failed (physical) server with the database attached, all running on the Cohesity platform, with no requirement for running a restore! We were subsequently able to conduct a full planned migration of that database to a new SAN cluster in a safe and controlled manner. Without Cohesity the restoration of that database to a working state would have taken a significantly longer period, which proved our decision to use Cohesity in one incident."

It is exciting that we have been able to be more innovative by working with Cohesity. Having a multicloud data management solution in place has provided significant cost savings, faster and more efficient backup and recovery times, as well as giving us peace of mind for ransomware protection."
Head of Design and Platforms, Suffolk County Council
With Cohesity, we can do really granular backups and recovery of databases. And because it’s all incremental or log-based, they’re really fast.”
A database backup is the process of protecting and securing copies of all the data stored in databases, so you can recover from outages or leverage backups for development, testing, or analytics.
A database backup solution will protect databases and their corresponding log files, and enable database-level recovery anywhere, anytime. A good database backup solution should help meet your organization’s data retention, data privacy, and business requirements cost-effectively, while making it quick and easy to access backups for recovery and secondary purposes.
Today’s enterprises depend on enterprise databases for a broad range of essential business functions, which makes choosing the right backup solution critical. The goal is to protect databases from data loss and long-term outages, which can incur significant financial and productivity costs.
A cost-effective and reliable backup and recovery solution for databases is even more important because of the many data challenges enterprises face, such as:
Data growth: Growing volumes of data increase the complexity and cost of backup and recovery for databases.
Regulatory changes: Ever-changing compliance mandates like HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI make database backups considerably more complex.
Increasing costs: The more data organizations have, the more the business has to pay for bandwidth, storage, and data management.
Slow backups and restores: As data grows, backups and restores take longer to complete, and performance can degrade significantly.
More complex environments: Enterprise businesses store and access data across many locations, including on-prem, edge, and cloud, which can complicate the management, security, and protection of data across these environments.
To accommodate the proliferation of databases across enterprise organizations, Cohesity offers robust and comprehensive support for all leading databases, with a unified security and management platform.
