Partnering with Cisco is Good for Everyone especially Customers

How Customers Benefit from Cisco’s Partnership Strategy

No technology is an island in IT. And any product of value must integrate with an ecosystem around them. Customers don’t just want integrated solutions – they require it! They need integrated solutions to ensure there are no technology gaps, that the components work seamlessly together, the solutions deliver on the business requirements, and there’s a high-quality support team that ensures their business stays up and running.

Take Cohesity as a prime example. We are working in a complex environment in the data center, with Cisco being a major player. That’s why Cohesity and Cisco partnered to provide Cisco customers with benefits of integrated solutions and build their digital foundation from edge to core to cloud. Cohesity has been a strong partner for Cisco since April 2017. Working together, Cohesity complements Cisco to address all secondary data requirements – including target storage, backup, replication, disaster recovery, files, objects, test/dev copies, analytics data, and cloud tiering, on a single platform.

Cohesity-Cisco Joint Solutions

Cohesity allows Cisco customers to turn their most important asset – their data – that is at best dormant, into tangible value by unlocking additional use-cases that have never before been possible. Cohesity has integrated its software on Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), so customers can stay with their preferred Cisco hardware. Cohesity also provides enterprise-class backup and recovery for applications running on Cisco HyperFlex that’s optimally configured for data protection. In addition, Cohesity allows Cisco customers end to end, next generation, cloud-in-a-box capabilities – such as long-term retention, cloud tiering, cloud test/dev, on-premise-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud disaster recovery, direct backup to the cloud, and cloud-native backup – in their transition to the cloud.

Web-scale Simplicity for Secondary Data and Apps, Powered by Cohesity & Cisco

Here’s how one partner describes his company’s experience with deploying the joint Cohesity-Cisco UCS solution.

As data centers increase their investment in both hyperconvergence and software-defined infrastructures, the combination of Cohesity’s powerful DataPlatform software with Cisco’s UCS systems fits this strategy nicely. The joint Cohesity-Cisco UCS solution extends infrastructure consolidation beyond primary workloads into secondary workloads, which comprise the bulk of datacenter footprint today.
