Bring Your Data Protection into the Cloud Era With Cohesity Hyperconverged Secondary Storage

We agree with Commvault on one thing - legacy data protection is ancient and must be modernized for the cloud era. Today’s enterprises need a scale-out, converged data protection solution that natively integrates with the public cloud. But the opportunity goes beyond just backup to completely redefine all secondary storage.

Top 6 Reasons to Choose Cohesity over Commvault HyperScale

Purpose-Built and Integrated

  • Single integrated software-defined solution with unified management
  • SpanFS is a web-scale file system purpose-built for secondary storage

Commvault HyperScale

  • Bolt-on of Commvault and Gluster - two legacy products with limited integration
  • Gluster is a generic file system not optimized for secondary storage

True Web-Scale

  • Web-scale, distributed software with no single point of bottleneck
  • Demonstrated scale to 256+ nodes

Commvault HyperScale

  • Commvault CommCell does not have a web-scale architecture
  • CommServe is single instance and does not scale-out

Instant Mass Restore

  • Any point in time

Commvault HyperScale

  • Uses CommVault Live Recovery

  • Last point in time only

Maximum Space Efficiency

Commvault HyperScale

Multicloud Data Fabric
