The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware. I can restore my image on a Dell server that I got from an HP server, as long as the specs are in… more»

What needs improvement?

They do a lot of maintenance. In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The icing on the cake is the price, as it is quite affordable. The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro. They are in the same price range. We don't have hybrid… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used Veritas in the past, but I had a very bad experience and it has traumatized me so I don't speak about that product. I have used Commvault and that solution is quite similar to Veeam… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see minor features added to the user interface, such as the software version in the dashboard. I would like to see Microsoft Exchange DAG supported as soon… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Cohesity is available on your own hardware or on hardware like HPE. We purchased support from Cohesity to ensure that should we face an issue, we don't have to deal with… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have moved from Actifio Data Management and a Dell EMC Centera archiving solution to a Cohesity Cluster.

What other advice do I have?

To me, the Cohesity Cluster solution is almost complete. There are only minor things that I would like to see added to the user interface.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Cloudian Hyperstore prior to choosing this solution.
