Cohesity DataPlatform Valuable Features

Chief Technology Officer at Xigent Solutions, LLC
Being that DataPlatform is a hyper-converged architecture, it scales very well for an MSP (Managed Service Provider) because we can just add nodes as we gain business. Its scalability is hugely important to us, but also just the simplicity of it is really good. It is simple and easy to use, which for an MSP is pretty important because I could be supporting hundreds of clients on that platform. Try doing that in a Connvault environment. Connvault is just super complicated and it would be impossible. Simplicity, ease of use, and scale are just phenomenal with DataPlatform. View full review »

I like that I can launch the cloud-based UI (Helios) from anywhere to view my dashboard. The support team is responsive and knowledgeable. I like having several options to backup and restore databases. The clone feature is very nice. You can restore workloads onto Cohesity's storage, which is also nice to have when you don't have enough space to restore on the server. Being able to automate failover for DR with runbook is a very nice feature. I like that you can use a single pane of glass console to manage multiple Cohesity nodes. We were starting to feel the struggle with secondary data fragmentation, having multiple copies of a file across locations that were different versions. Users just accepted it as business as usual, but now we will be able to serve much of that via a large NFS share. View full review »
