Cohesity : Solving Mass Data Fragmentation

Cohesity : Solving Mass Data Fragmentation

Cohesity DataPlatform

Cohesity DataPlatform™ consolidates data and applications including backups, files, objects, dev/test, and analytics on a single, software-defined platform. Inspired by web-scale architecture, DataPlatform is a scale-out solution based on a unique distributed file system, SpanFS®. DataPlatform modernizes and simplifies data and application management by providing one platform for multiple workloads. Although most organizations begin their journeys to overcoming mass data fragmentation by simplifying data protection, DataPlatform’s flexible architecture allows easy expansion to additional use cases, further increasing operational simplicity and improved TCO. Because DataPlatform is a software solution, it works equally efficiently on-premises on qualified Cisco, HPE, Dell, or Cohesity hyperconverged platforms as well as in the public cloud.

Web-Scale Simplicity and Efficiency

The flexible, resilient, and on-demand web-scale benefits pioneered by hyperscalers such as Google are now available to enterprises with DataPlatform. The solution eliminates unnecessary data silos and spans workloads as it converges data on a single platform. It accommodates data growth by delivering scale-out file and object storage in a limitless, pay-as-you-grow model without disruptive upgrades.

Easy, Cloud-Ready Deployment

DataPlatform is cloud-ready, ensuring seamless and rapid data and application mobility with leading public cloud providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Take advantage of public cloud elasticity and economics using policy-based automation for archiving, tiering, and replication to the cloud. Move virtual machines (VMs) to the cloud for dev/test and then back again when ready.

One Platform, Endless Possibilities

DataPlatform is powered by a patented distributed file system architecture, making it much more than a modern converged target for backup data. It can be used to recover applications instantly from any point in time to meet business SLAs. Cohesity and third-party applications also simplify file data search, speed eDiscovery, and streamline compliance. Built to support an API-first approach, DataPlatform integrates with leading automation solutions and custom business scripts to increase operational efficiency

Cohesity DataProtect

Cohesity DataProtect is a high-performance, software-defined backup and recovery solution for modern, application-driven infrastructure that spans from the core to the cloud and edge. Complementing Cohesity DataPlatform, it delivers comprehensive protection with policy-based management for all workloads, anywhere— virtual and physical, databases, NAS, cloud environments, and business-critical applications—on a single, webscale platform that converges backup, recovery, replication, and target storage.

Web-Scale Simplicity with Broad Application Support

Cohesity DataProtect radically simplifies data protection by eliminating legacy backup silos and managing backup and recovery infrastructure with a single, easy-to-navigate user interface. It provides consistent and comprehensive enterprise-class protection for a broad set of virtual, physical, databases, traditional and modern Kubernetes-based applications, and NAS workloads, and natively integrates with the leading cloud providers.

Lightning Fast Recovery

The solution features near-zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and near-instant recovery time objectives (RTOs) to meet business service-level agreements (SLAs). Combined with Cohesity Helios, quickly search and recover data on any Cohesity cluster, located anywhere. DataProtect uniquely reduces downtime by instantly mass restoring any number of virtual machines (VMs) to any point in time, and reduces data protection costs by 70% or more.

Flexibility that Extends into the Cloud

A software-defined solution designed to address current and future business needs, Cohesity DataProtect includes automated, policy-based management and scale-out limitlessly with a pay-as-you-grow model. It allows enterprises to take advantage of public cloud’s elasticity and economics with a cloud-first design, offering unparalleled data and app mobility, and maximum storage efficiency and security in the cloud with compression, dedupe, and encryption.
