Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Its flexibility is the most valuable. Being a cloud version, it has more flexibility, and it allows me to incorporate different workloads and consolidate all the data in one place. It has good high availability, and it is also easy to maintain.""The most valuable aspect for me is that I don't have to deal with media in terms of tapes like our existing system does.""One of the most valuable features is the restore functionality that they offer.""The ease of use and the GUI have really been most valuable to us. Configuring the system to do what we need is simple and straight forward and a lot of guesswork has been removed. One of my favorite features with Cohesity is Kroll for Exchange item-level recovery. The software is simple to use and fast.""With the ability to stage an entire lifecycle through versioning, integrated with AWS, it has made it possible to protect our corporation from end to end.""The restores are easy to do and have made it so that we can incorporate restores into our troubleshooting processes.""The ability to essentially instantly recover a VM and have it run on the Cohesity Platform while all those bits are technically being recovered in the background is useful to us.""The SQL Backup and Restore is very easy."

"The most valuable feature is the ability to pick up individual files.""I like the incremental backups and their failover.""It's simple to use.""The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward."

Cons
"I like that Cohesity offers the chance to have data on-premises and on the cloud. All the data is automatically sent to the cloud.""Better support for legacy platforms would be nice, but we should be moving off those anyway.""I'd like to be able to pause a backup while it's running and have it resume when I tell it to resume.""The one area where we would like to see additional improvements is with reporting. There are very granular reports from each grid. There are also some built-in reports within Helios (SAS Management Console) that offers basic reporting. However, for complex, large-enterprise environments, a more robust reporting engine that supports detailed audit reporting and enhanced ad hoc reports would be welcome.""The solution has a more complex setup than Veritas and Veeam.""The product is still young and is continually improving. There have been a couple of buggy releases in the software that have caused us minor issues, so possibly some better QA before releasing would prove to be useful. We have also been inquiring about new app and functionality via the Marketplace that was teased months back but has yet to come to fruition.""Many of the reports are basic, at most, and at times we had to open a support ticket to help find or develop a report for our needs.""We have Oracle databases running on Linux servers in our environment and we have found the Oracle backups were quite complex to setup."

"They could be more customer-friendly.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""The integration needs improvement.""There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "With respect to pricing, make sure that you look at both Rubrik and Cohesity as they are very similar and are quite competitive."
  • "I expect the system to probably pay off within the first two years."
  • "Sizing is important and it is easy to overestimate."
  • "Pricing, setup costs, etc. are pretty typical. The initial cost for Cohesity was less than other products the we evaluated. Cohesity's pricing does offer benefits as DR target costs are less than other solutions. You are not charged for DataProtect licensing for target DR data consumption."
  • "The pricing model is impressive and very effective."
  • "My advice is to always negotiate for better pricing."
  • "It has reasonable pricing, and we know they can give discounts. If you look at the primary pricing or the list pricing, it conforms to the market pricing, but you have to have a discount on it. Otherwise, it is way too expensive."
  • "The solution's pricing is quite high, more so than that of its competitors, Veeam, Veritas and Rubrik."

  • "Licensing costs are monthly."
  • "Price-wise it's good."
