In this demo, I do a quick run through of the Cohesity 6.4.1 user interface related to the Data Protection use case specifically. This is not meant to be a complete demo of the entire interface and functionality, just a quick overview for the Data Protection use case only.
I start off by showing the types of sources you can connect to such as External Cloud Providers (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.) as well as hypervisors, physical servers, databases, O365, Active Directory, NAS, etc.
Then I show how simple it is to create policies so that you can do local and long term retention, replication to other clusters, archive to the cloud, database logs, and much more.
The next step is to create a protection jobs for the various sources we mentioned above. We select the appropriate policy to associate to this protection job, and set various other settings such as QOA policy, SLA time frame, priority, etc.

In this video, I will show you how to register SQL servers as a source in the Cohesity version 6.4.1 user interface. Then I show how to create two protection jobs, one for a stand-alone SQL server and another for a SQL AAG.
Then we walk through how to recover the SQL (AAG) Always on Availability Groups database to the stand-alone SQL server as well as clone it. The we wrap up by taking a quick look at the SQL Dashboard.
Cohesity has an agent install that allows us to do more granular backups and restores to SQL databases. You can protect stand-alone, clustered and (AAG) Always on Availability Groups SQL servers. You can use our “Auto-Protect” feature so that when a new SQL server has been added to a SQL cluster or AAG, it automatically gets backed up as they are added. The agent also allows you to selectively pick which databases you want to protect.
