The apps and data powering innovation in today’s digital-first world are only possible because of rapid changes in IT infrastructure — on-premises and in the cloud. Yet legacy data management complexity has created a divide between apps, data and cloud that few organizations have successfully bridged.
As hybrid cloud architecture becomes the norm, IT teams need to eliminate data management silos (such as backup, file sharing, disaster recovery, dev/test provisioning and analytics) to move further, faster towards digital business success.
How can teams drive business agility while crippled by missed service-level agreements (SLAs) for data availability and access? How does business innovate and mine data faster for useful insights when faced with mass data fragmentation? How can IT teams proactively defend, deter and respond to ransomware threats while consumed by keeping the lights on?
The short answer is enterprises can’t be nimble and secure with complex data management separating apps, data and cloud. That’s why Cisco and Cohesity are advancing our already successful partnership and solutions to close the gap.
Today, we’re announcing modern, flash-optimized data management capabilities on the new Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System, built for the age of hybrid cloud, to further simplify data management and help you protect, manage, and extract value from your data faster.
Cohesity Helios software will soon be available on the Cisco UCS X-Series Modular System, powered by Intersight™. The results: even greater data and apps consolidation, optimized total cost of ownership (TCO), and incredibly fast performance for comprehensive data management services — backup & recovery, disaster recovery, file & object services, dev/test, and analytics — on a single platform across hybrid clouds.
Organizations adopting Cohesity Helios on UCS X-Series are going to see amazing technology gains, including these:
We’re thrilled to see Cohesity and Cisco continue to step up their innovation in the data management space,” said Pat Malloy, head of networks and platform engineering, Arnold Clark. “We’re excited about accelerated enterprise data management with the all-flash modular system from Cisco coupled with the multicloud data platform software from Cohesity. Ultra-fast performance and speed for ransomware recovery, data access and data reuse at scale are powerful differentiators from this strong partnership.
Now in addition to Cohesity on certified UCS C-Series rack servers and S-Series storage servers, Cohesity supports UCS X-Series adaptable, future-ready, and cloud-operated modular system, expanding enterprise choice and flexibility for deploying Cohesity-Cisco data management solutions.
It’s an exciting time for data management. We’ll keep you posted on the exact timing of the general availability of the Cohesity on UCS X-Series solution from Cisco — right now it’s scheduled for Fall 2021.
