Hyatt Simplifies and Modernizes Backup and Recovery Across Global Data Centers With Cohesity

Cohesity DataPlatform Delivers Significant Infrastructure Savings,
Reduces Storage Footprint, and Improves Efficiency

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cohesity today announced that Hyatt Hotels Corp. (NYSE: H), a leading
global hospitality company, has deployed Cohesity
to simplify and modernize backup and recovery across
its three data center locations. With Cohesity, Hyatt now has a flexible
and scalable solution for accelerated backup and recovery, long-term
retention and archival, and testing and development.

Hyatt’s complex IT infrastructure is spread across geographies, with
data centers in Chicago, Phoenix, and Frankfurt. Its mission-critical
applications run on IBM, but 70 percent of the company’s environment is
virtual. For Hyatt’s IT team, backing up virtual servers proved
cumbersome, requiring multiple steps, rebooting, and unnecessary
downtime. Backups and restores took days, and public cloud storage costs
for its Oracle financial systems were exorbitant. Finally, testing and
development required shifting tapes and transferring data over FTP, a
time-intensive endeavor.

Recognizing the urgency and benefit of replacing its legacy
infrastructure with a modern solution, Hyatt evaluated Cohesity against
a variety of competitors. Cohesity was the clear standout, and Hyatt
deployed its software and certified appliances with an approximate
capacity of 350TB across its three data centers.

“Cohesity was the bundled solution we needed to simplify and modernize
our backup and recovery environment at Hyatt,” said Ted Stevens, senior
storage and virtualization engineer, Hyatt Hotels. “We have been able to
lower costs through deduplication alone, and Cohesity’s native
integration with third-party applications and seamless integration with
VMware have given us greater efficiency and deeper insight into our
overall environment.”

With Cohesity, Hyatt can now complete backups and restores in minutes.
Thanks to Cohesity’s patented snapshot technology, recovery and cloning
virtual machines (VMs) is also faster and simpler. In addition, Cohesity
enabled Hyatt to move its Oracle financial systems from the public cloud
to on-premises infrastructure, significantly reducing storage costs and
making it available for testing and development purposes through
zero-cost clones.

With Cohesity, Hyatt realized the following results:

  • Simple and fast backup and recovery
  • Reduced storage requirements by 400TB to achieve more than $400,000 in
  • Simplified long-term retention and archival through native integration
    with Microsoft Azure
  • Reduced raw storage requirements by 40 percent
  • Faster and more efficient testing and development using zero-cost
    clones of backup data
