Quotes From Members Comparing Cohesity vs NetApp Cloud Backup

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Cohesity is a cost-effective storage designed for secondary or archival data. It also integrates well with a number of other systems, like VMware, Pure Storage, or AWS with its large array of APIs available to the user.The four independent node cluster architecture is redundant. It maintains data integrity and load balancing.We are saving valuable datacenter rack space, which is critical as we evaluate co-location options.We are looking forward to the next release, so we can take advantage of the AHV backup for our Nutanix environment.Backups are quick and painless to set up.​I love the ability to clone a virtual server in only minutes.A robust, verifiable backup with a restore solution, which decreases our backup and has a restore window.No longer does it take several hours to backup a VM or troubleshoot a backup issue.

The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data.You can store backups for a while.The flexibility. Being able to virtualize it, port it wherever I like, test my backups, test my DR capabilities whenever I like without impacting anybody.It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a set-it-forget-it.Most importantly is having that island into that datacenter, and being able to address things in the same console. Thus, it is irrelevant where it's stored.Being able to move data seamlessly from one-premise to the cloud (Azure). It works great. The backup solution is perfect for us.

Cons
Since it is an evolving product, there are lot of frequent releases which require upgrades to be done every other weekend.The support team could do a better job. Sometimes finding the correct person is cumbersome and time consuming.Physical RDMs on virtual machines could be a bit easier to configure and plan out.The rack mounting instructions did not appear to be correct, but we were able to overcome it.I would like to see Cohesity have the ability to do a file level restore from a Windows server, which is storing data on dynamic disk.A little more documentation on standard faults would help, as new features are being released quite often.We are waiting on the AIX agent to be released.Initial setup can be complex if you need to change IP addresses. Hopefully, they improve that in a future release.

I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have.More than a 500 volume limit. At the moment, it only supports up to 500 volumes for SnapMirror and that's a problem. We've got 750, so a larger limit for volume replicas for SnapMirror.What could be helpful is different user base authentication so then maybe we could allow different customers to point to a single appliance and they only see the backups and things that they have.There are some bits it could do better. With tighter integration maybe with Veeam, or something like that, it'd be really good.More capacity with the basic model of the AltaVault would probably help out.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Ensure that you understand the per TB licensing model. Also, Exchange backups are not native to Cohesity and require Kroll.Cohesity came in at the best price.Cohesity came in at the best price. Setup was included and done in half a day.Licensing is per node and per protected terabyte. You will also pay 10-15% annually for support.If SQL is in heavy use at your location, I would highly recommend narrowing your PoC testing to Cohesity and Rubrik. They will be competitive on pricing with each other, so really put them through the paces.The ROI is huge. Not really measurable at this point, but the price of the unit was a fraction of what a couple hours of downtime could result in.
