What needs improvement?

I would love to see something which allows us to do an auto restart of backup jobs. Right now, we have it where we have health checks, and if anything that missed or failed, we monitor those. However… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We came from version 7.1.3. Based on some of the features which were offered in version 8, this was the focal point for us to say, "We need to upgrade if we want to take advantage of using container… more»

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

Currently, the best feature is the DR replication for us. So, whatever data we are taking in the backup, it will get replicated end of day to our DR site.

How has it helped my organization?

Earlier, we used the Veritas backup solution. Before, we had a lot of manual steps. Now, with Networker, we do not have those steps.

What needs improvement?

In Rubrik, we were getting less time for backup the things because snapshot feature is there. So we asked that our EMC account manager help us. He suggested some block based backup, but we have seen… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The low cost is important.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used Rubrik and Veeam in the past.

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

Backups and restores are much faster and we were able to increase our backup frequency where it made sense to do so in order to have lower RPO. We were also able to move… more»

What needs improvement?

Reporting is one area that isn't as robust as it could be. The next release supposedly improves upon that but I have not seen it yet. We had real issues with restores on… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I advise others to spin up a Cohesity virtual edition on their infrastructure. We ran backups in parallel for a month to test all features before even bringing in test… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Veeam and ExaGrid. We liked Veeam, but we did not see any innovation out of ExaGrid and they were becoming progressively more expensive. I was wary of… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would say that Cohesity seems like they are a very forward looking company. They are adding features with each release and seem to be investing heavily in extending… more»
