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."

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."

"I would like to see the capability for remote installation of third party applications added( Like installing WinRar MS Office etc..) , and Firewall for servers.""If you are doing an AIX backup then you have to use the CLI because it doesn't appear on the console, the way that Windows and Linux jobs do.""There really are no cons. The product simply has to maintain development to keep up with changes in the operating system.""The solution could use some updates to minor details omitted from current reporting.""Interface could possibly be improved.""I can't think of anything that may be missing.""It fulfills our needs in terms of features. In terms of improvements, they can maybe improve its documentation.""In the next release, I would like to see it easier to implement."

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."

More Cohesity DataProtect Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is good.""The licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis, and the fees are much lower than what I pay for NetBackup.""The pricing model is based on CPU and must be declared as Microsoft or VMware licensing.""We have a cloud provider agreement with Veeam. We are also paying for the agent.""We have a license package.""The solution is inexpensive, more so than other products."
