Cohesity Upgrades Secondary Storage Platform

Cohesity, a provider of “hyper-converged” secondary storage, has released version 2.0 of its Cohesity Data Platform, which includes new performance, management, and security features for enterprise. The Cohesity Data Platform helps customers consolidate secondary storage use cases, such as data protection, test and development, and file services. The latest version of the storage platform includes site-to-site replication, cloud archive, and hardware-accelerated, 256-bit encryption.

Cohesity's secondary storage platform is intended to help enterprises overcome the challenges of fragmented data silos caused by the adoption of various point solutions to handle backup, file services, analytics, and other secondary storage use cases.

"Our unified storage platform is designed with web-scale technology that can handle today's and tomorrow's data growth with infinite scalability and efficient spillover to the public cloud, replacing the monolithic scale-up architectures that have dominated secondary storage for decades," said Mohit Aron, CEO of Cohesity. "We are continuing our focus on innovation to help our customers manage data sprawl with the first hyperconverged solution that uses flash, compute, and policy-based quality of service to consolidate disaster recovery, test/dev, analytics, and other secondary storage use cases."
