Overall, it is an easy to use, flexible backup solution.

My advice is to set up a Proof of Concept with Cohesity. They are more than accommodating and basically treat you like a licensed customer. Any issues you do encounter get fixed during a PoC, so make sure to document them well because it makes the production implementation of Cohesity dead simple. Just try it ... and be prepared to like it. Make sure to have a set list of scenarios to test.

Cohesity can replicate backups to a secondary cluster (also virtual edition).

We have been very happy with Cohesity and it has solved several major problems for us. At the same time, they are aggressively adding and further refining features. We are now backing up our O365 email via Cohesity, which is something we didn't even know it could do when we purchased it. They really are developing a great platform for unstructured data and backups.

Cohesity's elastic search gives it a leg up on Rubrik.

Officially, we do plan to implement this solution one day. We're new enough to the system, and we are excited about it enough that we are still in the 'Honeymoon' phase. With respect to legacy support, we don't have funds to stay up to date with a lot of leading things. There is also a mentality of 'if it is not broken, do not fix it' with systems that we are working to overcome. This almost made it a deal-breaker for us, but Cohesity came to rescue with support for our versions.

To me, the Cohesity Cluster solution is almost complete. There are only minor things that I would like to see added to the user interface.

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 their product. I feel like we will get good value out of our investment.

The software is running by itself! It was a very great acquisition for us.

Cohesity offers the possibility to do a free POC, so if you have any doubt, try it, and I am sure you will see a lot of their advantages.
