Flexible Recovery targets

With our unique dissimilar environment technology, you can recover to any physical, virtual or cloud target with automatic boot critical driver insertion. CoBMR extends Cohesity backups so that operating systems, applications, user configurations and data can be recovered to any point in time provided by DataProtect.

Automation and sandbox testing

CoBMR provides DR automation and orchestration capabilities plus the ability to recover systems within a sandbox environment to validate recovery processes and RTO objectives. 

Identical Systems

Recover entire workloads including OS configuration, applications, data and user information. With automation you can recover multiple systems from a single interface. CoBMR can recover systems from Windows, Linux, VMware, Hyper-V and cloud platforms such as Azure, OCI and Amazon EC2. 

Recommended solution

CoBMR is a recommended recovery solution for Cohesity DataProtect and is provided through approved Cohesity channel partners. CoBMR is managed through the Cristie Virtual Appliance (VA).

The combination of Cristie Recovery CoBMR and Cohesity DataProtect provides a high-performance, secure backup and recovery solution. Designed to safeguard your data against sophisticated cyber threats, it offers the most comprehensive policy-based protection for your cloud-native, SaaS, and traditional data sources with the added protection of complete system recovery, all from your native Cohesity DataProtect backups.

CoBMR also provides recovery assurance through simulated recoveries which can be scheduled to run at desired intervals. Each simulation job fully automates the creation of the recovered machine and then performs post-recovery test scripts to verify integrity and functionality.

Simulation schedules can be set up months in advance and planned so that an entire server infrastructure is tested over a specific timeframe. Recovery machines can be hosted within an isolated network and released after every simulation so that storage is not permanently required.

Detailed reporting highlights any problems encountered and provides an audit trail of results which can assist compliance reporting or help to verify internal disaster recovery performance.

The intuitive interface and workflow allow you to perform a recovery by following this simple process:
