Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Instant volume mount and the SpanFS filesystem itself, which has great dedupe and compression across all of our backups.""It makes our administrators' lives much easier to combine backup, archiving, and services like hosting file shares in one central system with only one user interface.""The most valuable feature is ease of use.""The most valuable features are the rapid VM restores and the ability to quickly find files and download them directly to my desktop so that I can put them where I need them to be.""The restores are easy to do and have made it so that we can incorporate restores into our troubleshooting processes.""After linking a cloud subscription, like Azure for example (AWS and Google are also supported), you can "spin" a VM onto the cloud from any backup snapshot.""Cohesity is extremely easy to use and intuitive.""The product is easy to put in place. All backups are done very quickly. It's easy to perform restores. What I prefer in the product is its simplicity. There are no useless settings to define, and everything is ready after the initial setup."

"The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."

Cons
"Reporting is one area that isn't as robust as it could be.""I would like to see Microsoft Exchange DAG supported as soon as possible.""There is limited support for legacy systems, which is something that could be improved.""The error handling could be improved.""We would love to see direct compatibility with HPE Simplivity, which we also leverage.""The GUI is in need of improvement.""We have Oracle databases running on Linux servers in our environment and we have found the Oracle backups were quite complex to setup.""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."

More Cohesity DataProtect Cons »

"It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We purchased support from Cohesity to ensure that should we face an issue, we don't have to deal with different service providers.""With respect to pricing, make sure that you look at both Rubrik and Cohesity as they are very similar and are quite competitive.""I expect the system to probably pay off within the first two years.""Sizing is important and it is easy to overestimate.""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.""The pricing model is impressive and very effective.""My advice is to always negotiate for better pricing."

Top Answer: The pricing is more or less the same as what we'd get from Veeam on Office 365, so it's fine.
Top Answer: There are still a few things on SharePoint that they need to correct in terms of how they backup and restore. That's something that we had a challenge with; however, I know that they've been… more »
