Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is ease of use.""The SQL Backup and Restore is very easy.""Cohesity is extremely easy to use and intuitive.""The restores are easy to do and have made it so that we can incorporate restores into our troubleshooting processes.""One of the most valuable features is the restore functionality that they offer.""Cohesity's web-scale architecture enables us to scale up as needed.""Instant recovery options are a big benefit for urgent restores, as we don't need to wait for hours or days for a restore to complete before being able to access the files.""The most valuable features of Cohesity DataProtect are SpanFS and the handling of hybrid workloads."

Cons
"For Oracle DBs, we have observed a few bugs. This can be done better.""Many of the reports are basic, at most, and at times we had to open a support ticket to help find or develop a report for our needs.""The support team sometimes takes a long time to resolve issues, although, in our experience, these have been specific things like SQL blobs.""Cohesity cluster upgrades have not been as easy as a single button click. They are a manual process that requires upgrading each node into a cluster individually.""We have Oracle databases running on Linux servers in our environment and we have found the Oracle backups were quite complex to setup.""In terms of the product itself, there have been a handful of patches that have had to be applied outside of the GUI via the command line. It's very straightforward and easy and in the same redundant fashion, but not quite as simple as one or two clicks. I'm hoping that will decrease going forward.""Better support for legacy platforms would be nice, but we should be moving off those anyway.""The GUI is in need of improvement."

More Cohesity DataProtect Cons »

"The price could be lowered slightly, to make it more competitive.""The two-factor authentication is missing from Dell products.""After resizing and compression, the system continuously runs out of space. Dell EMC doesn't do automatic cleanup or other things, so we constantly have to manually go in there or work with Dell support on this. The solution has not been working as advertised."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"With respect to pricing, make sure that you look at both Rubrik and Cohesity as they are very similar and are quite competitive.""The pricing model is impressive and very effective.""Sizing is important and it is easy to overestimate.""The solution's pricing is quite high, more so than that of its competitors, Veeam, Veritas and Rubrik.""Pricing, setup costs, etc. are pretty typical. The initial cost for Cohesity was less than other products the we evaluated. Cohesity's pricing does offer benefits as DR target costs are less than other solutions. You are not charged for DataProtect licensing for target DR data consumption.""I expect the system to probably pay off within the first two years.""It has reasonable pricing, and we know they can give discounts. If you look at the primary pricing or the list pricing, it conforms to the market pricing, but you have to have a discount on it. Otherwise, it is way too expensive.""My advice is to always negotiate for better pricing."

"The licensing is billed on a monthly basis. Dell is bundled so that when you order IDPA, you get everything together with the license."
