Cohesity Expands Relationship with Amazon Web Services, Giv…

SAN JOSE, Calif.–()–Cohesity, a leader of hyperconverged
secondary storage
, today announced a wide range of new solutions,
powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), that empower customers to bring
together cloud-native backups, full lifecycle disaster recovery, and
long-term data retention on a single, easy-to-use platform. Cohesity
also revealed a dramatic increase in the number of customers utilizing
solutions from AWS and Cohesity as more organizations embrace a more
automated and scalable approach to hybrid cloud architecture.

Modern enterprises overwhelmingly recognize the value of leveraging
cloud infrastructure together with on-premises resources to achieve new
levels of efficiency and cost savings. A recent survey from IDG found
that 73 percent of organizations have at least one application, or a
portion of their computing infrastructure, in the cloud already, and
that is expected to grow to 90 percent in 2019.1

“Cohesity is giving customers new ways to leverage AWS in support of a
variety of secondary workloads,” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing
officer, Cohesity. “Cohesity is focused on helping customers address
critical challenges tied to mass data fragmentation. Our deep
relationship with AWS gives customers greater flexibility and agility
while managing their critical infrastructure and data through a single
user interface on a web-scale platform.”

Running on AWS Cloud Deliver Automation for Management Simplicity

Cohesity’s solutions running on AWS bring a new level of automation to
cloud-based backup and recovery processes, leveraging Amazon Elastic
Block Store (Amazon EBS) snapshot APIs to protect cloud-native virtual
machines (VMs). Cohesity DataProtect auto-discovery and auto-protect
capabilities help ensure that backups scale automatically as cloud-based
workloads are added or deleted, and empower administrators to set backup
policies for different virtual machines (VMs) that automatically match
different service level agreement (SLA) requirements. This can free up
significant time and resources that administrators often spend backing
up cloud-based VMs using a legacy approach.

Cohesity also is empowering customers to leverage AWS for full lifecycle
disaster recovery with failover and failback capabilities. If customers
encounter an outage in the data center, they can rely on automated
policies to activate backup VMs on AWS and then bring the workloads back
to the original location when the incident is over. By adding automation
at various steps of the disaster recovery lifecycle, Cohesity gives
system administrators more flexibility in easily addressing critical
disaster recovery situations.

Cohesity also announced support for AWS
, a petabyte-scale data transport solution that makes it
easy to transfer large amounts of data into and out of AWS. Customers
can now use the Cohesity interface to create a policy-based protection
task and subsequently archive data to AWS Snowball for an easy and
cost-effective way to handle data migration.

Enthusiastic Customer Response Drives Growing Relationship Between
AWS and Cohesity

Adoption of Cohesity’s solutions running AWS has risen dramatically as
the two companies continue to build on their existing relationship. The
number of Cohesity customers that added integrations with AWS tripled in
the second half of the most recent fiscal year (which ended July 30),
compared to the first half of the fiscal year. Cohesity now has numerous
customers leveraging AWS, including Air Bud Entertainment, LendingClub,
the San Francisco Giants, and other marquee clients. Even more striking
is that the total petabytes of AWS cloud consumption on Cohesity’s
platform has grown by a factor of 17 since December 2017.

“As you might imagine for a film production company, Air Bud has doubled
the number of files we generate on a daily basis over the last several
years, and we are required to save millions and millions of files for an
indefinite period of time,” said Tyson Clark, technical director, Air
Bud Entertainment. “Cohesity was the next-gen secondary data solution we
needed to move us forward, and leveraging Cohesity’s solution running on
AWS allows for automated and secure backup and full lifecycle disaster
recovery on the cloud. With Cohesity, we now have one platform that
gives us the ability to easily search and recover data, keeping our
production schedules on track and saving time and expense for Air Bud
