Large Italian Bank Adopts Cohesity to Make Secondary Storage Strategic for Analytics, Test&dev, and Time to Market, While Also Modernizing and Automating Backup
This IDC Perspective discusses the backup challenges that a large European financial institution was facing and how it overcame them with Cohesity's DataPlatform solution. It also assesses the bank's attitude towards secondary data and how a full stack secondary storage infrastructure helped it accelerate test&dev projects, improve analytics, and find cost efficiencies. "The financial organization was struggling with legacy backup and manual data management processes," said Archana Venkatraman, research manager for European Storage Research at IDC. "But instead of simply replacing the backup infrastructure, it decided to adopt a full stack, hyperconverged data platform from Cohesity to make its secondary storage environment strategic. It has not just overcome its backup challenges, but has also improved the speed and quality of software, developer productivity and analytics. This shows that organizations that have a data-driven culture and investment in both primary and secondary storage tiers is yielding several benefits."
