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 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.""With instant DR failover using SiteContinuity, we are able to keep our files available no matter the situation.""Cohesity's web-scale architecture enables us to scale up as needed.""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.""We are very satisfied with the product as a whole—all the backup functions, the data protection functions. We are very satisfied with those, and the product is very simple to use.""The SQL Backup and Restore is very easy.""The ability to essentially instantly recover a VM and have it run on the Cohesity Platform while all those bits are technically being recovered in the background is useful to us.""The dashboard is very rich and provides details needed for a moderator."

Cons
"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.""For Oracle DBs, we have observed a few bugs. This can be done better.""We would like it to have more capabilities for different kinds of PaaS or SaaS services in the Azure cloud, such as Azure SQL or Azure Cosmos DB.""The error handling could be improved.""Features I would like to see include a more visible data lifecycle monitoring tab, and an easier to read backup status dashboard.""In terms of what could be improved, it just needs some maturity.""We have had our share of minor bugs over the past two years and a few bigger ones."

"The UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The pricing model is impressive and very effective.""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.""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.""With respect to pricing, make sure that you look at both Rubrik and Cohesity as they are very similar and are quite competitive."
