Simplifying Data Protection, Files and Objects on a Single Platform

By Raj Dutt • March 13, 2018

We’ve been making a lot of noise about file services lately, stressing how to simplify data protection, and consolidate files and objects on a single platform

What’s driving this file services discussion? Enterprises have learned the hard way there is an uneven playing field for unstructured data. Data originating from multiple sources is consumed differently, whether it’s file shares and large media that require random reads, backup, or archive workloads that need sequential writes.

Using Cohesity DataPlatform, you can consolidate all secondary workloads on a single, web-scale platform – manage backup and archive, files and objects, test and develop, and analytics workloads together.

Demo: Configuring File Services and Storage Domains on Cohesity DataPlatform

To better understand how this all works, we’ve put together a series of quick-but-useful demos. In today’s video, we show how easy it is to utilize the Cohesity DataPlatform UI to configure ViewBoxes (Storage Domains) and Views for File Services in a few simple steps.

The video is relevant to people looking to leverage a single, hyperconverged secondary storage solution for Linux user file services, Windows user file services, and S3 for object storage.

Stay tuned for our next video, which demonstrates how to configure backup policies to protect Cohesity file services.
