Protecting critical data and extracting business value from it poses significant challenges for enterprises. Legacy approaches to data security and data management with piecemeal solutions lead to operational complexity and cyber exposure while adding costs and compliance risks.
Cohesity and Lenovo have teamed up to deliver pretested and certified solutions bringing Cohesity’s modern data security and management platform on Lenovo’s ThinkSystem servers. It’s designed for seamless interoperability—so you can focus on driving revenue.
Our initial global reselling relationship, which started in 2021, has evolved into a strategic collaboration to make purchasing frictionless. The expanded partnership delivers validated solutions designed to protect enterprise data from on-premises to the cloud and address three of today’s highest-priority business issues—security, cloud, and data management.
Customers will benefit from simplified ordering processes and a faster time to value, as the integrated solutions and their technical interoperability have been certified. The solutions can be ordered globally and directly from the Lenovo Data Center Solution Configurator (DCSC), which provides one-stop purchasing for the Cohesity SKUs, including support and services for all phases of the solution lifecycle.
Customers and partners can also choose between the Intel and AMD-based servers offered by Lenovo, including the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 48TB/96TB and SR645 24TB/36TB to meet their broad range of technical and budgetary requirements. This makes Lenovo the only Cohesity Certified Platform Partner that covers both processor architectures.
“The certified solutions of Cohesity’s software on Lenovo’s best-of-breed ThinkSystem product lines bring the assurance of compatibility. It helps partners like me to focus on addressing customers’ data security and management challenges from on-prem infrastructure to edge, and to hybrid cloud while delivering streamlined purchasing, deployment, and support experience,” said Daren Bland, Managing Director, Recarta IT, UK.
Customers adopting these certified solutions will get access to Cohesity’s data security and management platform for a comprehensive range of services like backup and recovery, disaster recovery, file and object services, dev/test, and data compliance, security, and analytics—helping to reduce complexity and costs of operations, while enhancing business continuity and cyber resilience.
The Cohesity platform is based on a data security architecture that goes beyond Zero Trust principles. This multilayered architecture provides machine-learning (ML) anomaly detection, which can give customers early warning that their data may be under attack. It can also help customers prevent bad actors from encrypting, modifying, or deleting their backups through immutable backup snapshots. And, if the worst happens, the solution allows customers to easily and rapidly recover their data to any point in time. This is critical in preventing ransomware and other cyberattacks from crippling enterprise data environments.
Cohesity’s data management portfolio will be available through Lenovo, offering partners and customers the ease and flexibility of choices for on-prem, hybrid, and public cloud solutions, including Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity FortKnox SaaS offerings.
Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is a backup as a service (BaaS) offering that gives customers another easy way to back up their data on-premises or in cloud environments. As with the market-proven Cohesity DataProtect on-premises solution, the BaaS offering delivers support for an array of cloud workloads, including Microsoft 365 SaaS applications, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and compute infrastructure, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and on-premises data sources such as virtual machines (VMs), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and databases.
Cohesity FortKnox is a modern data isolation and recovery service that can play a critical role in helping organizations minimize the impact of cyber attacks such as ransomware. It is designed to provide an additional layer of off-site protection while dramatically simplifying operations and lowering costs compared to magnetic-tape and self-managed data vaults.
With these SaaS offerings, Cohesity manages the underlying infrastructure while the service is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Enterprises can use these services to improve their security posture, accelerate the move to the cloud, shift costs from CapEx to OpEx, and enable over-stretched IT staff to focus on other business-critical tasks.
The expanded Cohesity and Lenovo partnership brings together two industry leaders to offer you a simple and seamless experience. The partnership also enables customers to confidently strengthen their cyber resilience by protecting and, if necessary, rapidly recovering business-critical data wherever it resides from on-prem, hybrid, multicloud, and edge environments.
