COHESITY for Backup/Restore?

    I know this is an old topic but we are using Cohesity 6.6. It now has SQL log backup and Point in time restores. So far I'm liking it really well.

    Have you done test restores to point in time to verify it works the way you want ?

    Yes we have tested the Point in time restores to verify restores are truly the correct point in time. It has been working great so far. Backups are quick. The GUI is easily to navigate. Restores can be restored back to original location or an alternate source. You can do manual backups or log backups if needed out side of job schedule. When setting up protection groups, you can  add servers by an automatic protection so any instance or database that gets added will automatically backed up.  Backups are being replicated to another Cohesity cluster. The Cluster is encrypted and we also are using the the immutability option to protect from ransomware attacks inside the network. Seems like a lot of good features.

  • Sounds good then. As I said, a long time ago, if the tool can meet the RPO & RTO, I'm fine with it.
