Quantium Consolidates Backup on a Single, Unified Data Management Solution With Cohesity and Cisco

Sponsored by Businesswire

today announced that Quantium,
a leading data science and AI firm, has deployed Cohesity
to back up Quantium’s data, including workloads on SQL
databases, network file shares, and all internal production systems.

As data is core to its business, managing and protecting big data is a
critical requirement for Quantium’s IT team. Quantium recognized the
industry was moving away from servers with heavy storage and compute to
hyperconverged data management solutions. It had outgrown its Unitrends
solution for backups, and recurring issues were affecting performance
and impacting disaster recovery efforts. As Quantium is dedicated to
harnessing data to power breakthrough possibilities, the IT team
realized it needed a more modern solution and reached out to its
reseller, Katana1, and Cohesity to implement a proof of concept.

After implementation, Quantium was able to consolidate numerous backup
targets including NAS, direct-attached storage, primary SAN, and an NTFS
file server into a single, unified data management solution on Cohesity
. Through this software-defined platform, Quantium
realized tremendous operational efficiency across the entire
environment. Additionally, Quantium was able to leverage its existing
relationship with Cisco and run Cohesity software on certified Cisco
UCS servers
. Quantium trusts Cisco UCS as an agile platform that
allows dynamic provisioning for a broad set of applications.

With a joint Cohesity-Cisco solution, the company has freed up 80
percent of the time IT staff previously spent managing backup and
recovery — empowering them to focus on other critical areas of the
business. Additionally, with Cohesity’s unique global deduplication
across workloads and advanced compression, Quantium is seeing 20x data
reduction — an impressive level of space efficiency for optimal cost.

“Cohesity has exceeded our expectations and delivered faultless backup
and recovery for Quantium,” said Craig Taylor, IT director, Quantium.
“Cohesity delivers a simplified and modern approach to data management
that is easy-to-deploy, provides new levels of efficiencies, and is
optimized to run on Cisco UCS, all of which are having a positive impact
on our business. The joint solution is also enabling our IT teams to
spend less time on backups and more time focusing on driving business

Additional benefits Quantium has experienced with Cohesity on Cisco UCS

  • Simplified management with a single, unified solution
  • Time savings of almost 50 percent for data recovery
  • 20x data reduction through global deduplication
  • A clear path to future expansion, including native cloud integration,
    and hosting NFS and SMB file shares
  • Compute and data management consolidation on proven Cisco UCS
