It has mainly given us peace of mind knowing that our backups are going to work, and we will be able to easily restore our data, if needed.

I would like to see Cohesity have the ability to do a file level restore from a Windows server, which is storing data on dynamic disk.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

No stability issues.

The setup was fairly simple.

What about the implementation team?

The vendor was there every step of the way to make sure the implementation was successful.

We are not sure yet.
