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?

Dell EMC Networker is really the best in the market! After evaluating the solutions, we automatically decided to use this solution.

What is most valuable?

The interface of this solution is quite good. We use all of the features that this solution offers to us. There is not one more specific than the other, so it is difficult to just select one feature as we are satisfied with all that is… more»

What needs improvement?

An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing.

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

There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution.

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

Previously we used Nakivo, Veeam Backup and Replication, and Veeam Agent for Linux.

What other advice do I have?

The monitoring of the management tools that you find embedded within the package that you buy, is quite enough. It's enough to manage a typical installation. If you need anything else then you will add onto the package that you buy. Moving… more»

What is most valuable?

Instant volume mount and the SpanFS filesystem itself, which has great dedupe and compression across all of our backups. Our admins have been able to run restore jobs with… more»

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»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Veeam with other back end storage as well as Rubrik. Rubrik looked nice but was more expensive and we felt it was lacking features. It would have been a step… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is cost-effective. The backup features are very useful. The solution overall is very reliable.

What needs improvement?

The interface needs improvement and it doesn't offer as many features as other third-party backup solutions. The solution is still in its infancy; it's not a mature product yet.

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

Previously we were using Windows Network Backup as well as Veeam. Right now, we are testing Azure.

What other advice do I have?

We're Microsoft partners. We had issues before where there were no Azure Data Centers in South Africa. From a compliance point of view, backing up to outside the country was a bit of an issue. Now Microsoft has two data centers in South Africa, so it is no longer a problem. I'd recommend the… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the backing up of our network servers.

How has it helped my organization?

Most companies are now implementing network servers, and we have done the same. This solution works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware and Hyper-V.

What needs improvement?

This solution does not support image-level backup of a physical server. The backup and restore process should be faster.

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

I use multiple solutions for backup and recovery. I currently work with Commvault and Veeam. In the past, I have used also used CloudFare and Acronis.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this product is to read the admin guide. It is important to look at the prerequisites, such as the operating system version. Find out whether you satisfy the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The three most popular solutions are Veritas, Veeam, and Commvault.
