Our organization suffered a critical ransomware attack, effectively crippling our entire infrastructure. With Cohesity, we’ve been able to recover machines and file shares, verify they’re clean, and bring the applications back online. Cohesity has literally saved us hundreds of hours of work and I’d say it prevented us from having to actually pay the ransom note. We all still have jobs and the community has a functional hospital because we have had so much success with Cohesity.

Not only did Cohesity have a product feature mix that met our requirements, we quickly realized the additional capability Cohesity provides would be a gamechanger. It met our requirements for backup but could also supplement our DR strategy and was capable of managing very large volumes of files seamlessly while providing instant searchability.

We had a timeline of three years to modernize file services, backup and cloud archiving, and we completed them all within a year with Cohesity. Our total cost of ownership is less than zero for Cohesity—in employee time as well as space and tape archiving cuts. I've been nothing but happy with Cohesity."

Commonly asked NAS backup and recovery questions

NAS backup and recovery is the process of protecting and securing unstructured file data from NAS systems so you can recover from outages or leverage backups for development, testing, or analytics.

A NAS backup and recovery solution will protect users’ SMB/CIFS and NFS file data and a broad range of enterprise applications, and enable recovery anywhere, anytime. A good NAS backup and recovery 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.

Since almost 90% of all enterprise data is unstructured, enterprises deploy and manage NAS systems across many locations to support their most critical business functions. This makes choosing the right NAS backup and recovery solution critical. The goal is to protect file data from loss and long-term outages, both of which can incur significant financial and productivity costs.

A cost-effective and reliable backup and recovery solution for NAS is even more important because enterprises face many data challenges, including:

  • Data growth: Growing volumes of data increase the complexity and cost of backup and recovery for NAS data.
  • Regulatory changes: Ever-changing compliance mandates like HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI make NAS data protection 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, complicating the management, security, and protection of data across all these environments.
