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.This solution is easy to manage.It has a lightning fast restore.The spin-up of a VM within a test environment for backup testing along with quick restores.It's completely reliable and easy to restore.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.

The whole product is based on point-in-time restore capabilities built into their storage appliance, and no one else I know does that.The unit has been running at 100% without an issue.Any time I have needed anything, from a simple question to someone to be onsite, the customer service has been exceptional.The Reduxio unit is superior in its ability to recover from any second.It has a very intuitive interface, it integrates more smoothly with our steps. With a different product from a different manufacturer, there are a lot more steps required to set up a volume, to make it available in VMware and to utilize it there.We like the way the Reduxio is designed, the way the managing/operating end is just so much easier; fewer steps, more intuitive steps. It has a number of features baked into it that, in other products, are additional licensed components, like compression and dedupe.The biggest feature, and one of the reasons we use it with the file shares, is its continuous Snapshotting. We can go back to almost to any point in time, not only to last night at midnight or a week ago, but 10 minutes ago or three-hours-and-so-many-seconds, or whatever the case may be. We already had a brush with ransomware in the past, so it's good to know we can dial back to just before a mishap happens.It's very intuitive, has a very modern interface. Instead of making the user set up a million parameters for things that the system knows better anyway, they put all the intelligence in the product and made the controls much easier.

Cons
Reporting is one area that isn't as robust as it could be.This solution is only compatible with a limited number of storage arrays, including Pure and Cisco Hyperflex.Microsoft Exchange online mailbox backups would be fantastic.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.

The only critique that we have is it needs the ability to have local users added. You have to log in as one built-in admin account. You can't create your own.It would be helpful to have the ability to recover virtual machines individually without having to restore the full LUN.t would be helpful to have a mobile app to monitor the storage array remotely.Needs to be made easier to use with slightly older versions of VMware.The ability to look at data at a file level would be useful, as well as the ability recover at that level. Right now, you can only recover whole volumes.The only thing that I'd like to see, at some point in time, is having the storage array being able to detect a ransomware attack. When you get hit by a ransomware it rewrites every block in your guest's virtual machine. So there should be a way for them to be able to detect that: "Hey, this is unusual, to see every block of this guest being rewritten all at one time," and then flag that as potential malware or ransomware.Scalability is a little unusual. We came from the NetApp world where, if you needed more disk space, you just added more drives into the chassis, whereas with Reduxio, if you need more disk space, you have to buy a new chassis.the only thing I would say negative about Reduxio is the cabling was a little bit confusing at first, but now that we understand it, it's easy. It was just so different from what we've seen before. That was the only hard part to get used to. The storage array is fully redundant, so there are some cross-connect cables that you have to run, from the A side to the B side, and the B side back to the A side, and we've just never seen anything like that before. But now that I understand the design, it makes complete sense. But initially it was confusing.

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.

The licensing is very simple with Reduxio. It is actually one of the attractions, unlike some of the other products. The other product we're using, in some of its incarnations, has extremely complex pricing, with every spindle having an associated license and fees. With Reduxio it's very simple. For the box - the hardware comes in essentially one configuration for the chassis, the unit (and you can buy multiple units and daisy-chain them) - there is no "a-la-carte," so many drives of this kind or that kind, etc. It has a basic hardware configuration. Then, through the software license, they allocate or assign you the right to use the full capacity, or half of it, or a quarter of it. Of course, if you're not using the full capacity but need to, it is a simple phone call to upgrade. It's as simple as it gets.Set up costs are minimal. We were early adopters so we received really good pricing.I think that you are able to buy a minimum capacity, then grow your capacity within the box as you expand your data needs.ROI is how much (time, money, resources) you will save in case of a ransomware attack because you had this box.I think the pricing is good value, because you're not just buying a storage array, you're buying a backup solution and a DR solution and a "time machine" solution, all bundled in one storage array. When we had NetApp storage we had to then go out and buy a copy of Veeam which is a backup solution. With the Reduxio, you still need to do backups but you don't need that software product.You want the best, you've got to pay for the best, that's all. In terms of licensing, just work with your VAR. The features, overall, were just too good to pass up, even though it comes at a premium.Only one device is sold. Negotiate the initial storage, but you can start small and move up with ease. Negotiate.One of the key selling points of the Reduxio was that it really is fully licensed for the unit. There are no additional licenses needed for the product, which really helps scalability. There were no additional options to purchase, per se. They were already wrapped into the product.

Overview

Distributed scale-out platform: Replace individual storage appliances with a web-scale platform. Ensure high-availability, pay as you grow by scaling performance and capacity linearly, and eliminate expensive forklift upgrades.

Hyperconverged nodes: Bring compute to your data instead of moving copies of data to the compute. Run secondary data workflows including data protection, test / dev and analytics directly on the Cohesity platform. Accelerate IO performance with SSD caching.

Support for backups, files and test / dev copies: Consolidate your secondary data on the Cohesity platform with support for NFS and SMB interfaces. Consolidate backups, files, and test / dev copies.

Reduxio's HX550 flash hybrid storage arrays, based on Reduxio's TimeOS storage operating system allow you to recover application data to any second in the past, eliminates most of the complexity associated with managing storage, and provides exceptional performance and efficiency, far exceeding anything available today.
