Cohesity DataPlatform 6.3 - Active Directory Backup and Recovery
I’ll be upfront and honest - backup and recovery doesn’t excite me, and it never has. On the other hand, this world of data management, policy driven protection / placement and analysis of said data does tweak my interest, which is why I taken an interest in tinkering with some of the modern platforms, for want of a better term, such as Cohesity. But as I was reading through the “what’s new” section of Cohesity DataPlatform 6.
Cohesity 6.2 - Office365 Exchange Online Protection
Introduction With the release of Cohesity version 6.2, there is support to protect Exchange Online Office365 mailboxes natively within the product.
Protecting data in a SaaS platform is always an interesting discussion. At the end of the day, there is a shared responsibility model at play here, and as the customer and/or consumer, there are still some very valid reasons you’d want to ensure you are protecting business critical data such as exchange online mailboxes.
Redeploying NSX Edges To a New Cluster After Manager Restoration
That title is a bit of a mouthful, but it’s Friday night and that’s the best I’ve got!
I was recently working through some recovery scenarios for NSX in the lab, as I was interested to understand what the process was for various scenarios such as:
Losing NSX Manager and restoring Losing NSX Manager, DLR and ESG’s and restoring Losing the entire cluster (including ESXi hosts) and restoring NSX manager in to a new cluster The third scenario is reasonably obscure, and I’m not sure if you would follow a different restore process than what I did if this did actually happen.
