Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

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.

We paid for the entire solution because we have done a few expansions already. I think it's between 400 to 600k. That is the price for the complete system, including the hardware, the support, the subscriptions for the software, I think for four to five years.

The costs vary, but the vendors will sometimes work with you depending on your purchase and what time of year it is in order to make deals happen. The Cohesity licensing was pretty straightforward, which was also attractive in that we didn't have to license a whole bunch of features. Everything was bundled together.

My advice is to always negotiate for better pricing. A contract with any backup vendor will always be a long-term deal, so think ahead and force them to sharpen their pencils. Never sign up without evaluating the price of other vendors over a three to a five-year term.

The pricing model is impressive and very effective.

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to have a high-level understanding from your engineers before committing to a package. Cloud integration is a must. Do not pass up the licenses even if you are not currently using them.

Setup was very easy and pricing/licensing were very straightforward. We didn't feel like we were getting nickeled and dimed for every little thing.

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.

Sizing is important and it is easy to overestimate. It is difficult to understand how dedupe will work with your workload.

With respect to pricing, make sure that you look at both Rubrik and Cohesity as they are very similar and are quite competitive.

Cohesity is available on your own hardware or on hardware like HPE. We purchased support from Cohesity to ensure that should we face an issue, we don't have to deal with different service providers. This makes the solution probably a little bit more expensive, but I'm sure it will safe time and money later on when support is needed.

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 hardware. Spinning up the virtual edition was quick and painless.

Pricing is fair for what the product does, compared to our previous solution, it's even cheaper. We will also save a lot of money on the support as we had a lot of issues with the previous product.

The nice thing is there is no further licensing when you purchase the system. All is integrated.

It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and it is really an all-in-one solution.

During your implementation stage, make sure you have a good Cohesity rep. Ours had completed over 200 implementations. He was very knowledgeable.

Cohesity comes with the software and storage/hardware together.

Ensure that you understand the per TB licensing model. Also, Exchange backups are not native to Cohesity and require Kroll.
