5 Reasons to Choose Veeam Over Cohesity
Gain peace of mind
by knowing that each virtual machine (VM) you protect can be recovered when disaster strikes with SureBackup. SureBackup verifies that your VMs, OS and applications are recoverable.
All you can do is hope for the best since Cohesity does not offer an automated verification solution to guarantee that your VMs can be recovered when hit with disasters like ransomware and storage corruption.
Universal licenses that make sense
Recognize significant cost and management savings
with simple instance‑based licensing that spans across all major workloads, including VMs, physical servers, workstations, NAS data and cloud instances.
Deal with increased licensing costs as your data grows due to legacy capacity‑based licensing models. You also have to be prepared for higher fees since Cohesity features like DR, replication, cloud vaulting, threat protection, data classification and bare metal recovery require additional subscriptions.
Fast NAS backup and recovery
Reduce your RPO and RTO service level agreements (SLAs)
by taking advantage of Veeam’s innovative NAS backup capabilities like storage‑agnostic, native changed file tracking and instant NAS recovery. Incremental backups on commodity NAS hardware can be completed in a fraction of the time that Cohesity requires.
Wait much longer for your incremental backups to complete if your NAS is not one of the two vendors supported by Cohesity. Be prepared to wait for every file to be restored before they are available to your users.
Complete feature set
See the benefit of the first‑party capabilities
provided by Veeam Data Platform, including agentless VM backup, native tape integration, enterprise application protection and robust, near real‑time VM replication.
Deal with several third‑party solutions to close the gaps in Cohesity’s backup solution. With no tape integration, insufficient on‑premises application support and no native VM replication, Cohesity is ultimately a point‑product with a limited use case.
Identify a potential ransomware attack
in near real‑time with customizable, agentless monitoring tools that identify the symptoms of a ransomware attack on your production VMs. Scan VMs with trusted antivirus definitions before recovering to production.
Learn about an attack hours after it already happened, since Cohesity only scans backup data with a proprietary machine‑learning algorithm. By the time an attack is detected by Cohesity, the entire environment may have been infected, leading to significant recovery costs and missed SLAs.
