Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, a US-based law firm, worked with Cohesity on AWS to consolidate data storage from three solutions to one, reduce data backups from 30 hours to 15 minutes, and reduce its data storage footprint. The firm implemented Cohesity DataProtect to archive backup data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for long-term retention.


The College of the Holy Cross sought to transition away from on-premises tape backups to cloud solutions. Working with Commvault, an APN Advanced Technology Partner with an AWS Storage Competency, the college reduced its costs, operational workloads, and the need for extra hardware in the data center.
