IT services firm CrossRealms has become an Authorized Cohesity Reseller in Chicago. “Cohesity is a great fit for CrossRealms, said Phil Teng, CrossRealms vice president of sales and operations. “It’s a disruptive product that aligns with our mission to deliver high value and game-changing technology to our clients.”


Cohesity converges all secondary storage and workflows, including data protection, testing and development, file services, and analytics, on one proved, configured and scalable platform. Traditionally, organizations have had to rely on multiple hardware and software platforms for secondary storage. “Cohesity provides a strategic solution to data sprawl and the increasing costs of secondary storage,” said CrossRealms President and Enterprise Architect Usama Houlila.

IT research and advisory firm Gartner gave this emerging technology a “high” benefit rating in its 2015 Hype Cycle for Storage Technologies Report. Cohesity not only is disrupting the secondary storage space through innovative technology, but also through its pricing. The appliance and software are integrated, and customers are billed based on their storage requirements.

Cohesity founder Mohit Aron previously helped create the Google File System and coined the term “hyperconvergence.” Said Teng, “You can’t ask for a better pedigree.”

Teng and other industry experts say that Cohesity will help organizations:

  • Reduce costs associated with excessive storage and the purchase and management of multiple vendor storage platforms and software licenses
  • Minimize performance impairment from copy data activities and, thereby, achieve extremely fast recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives
  • Access, gain insight from, and make better use of secondary data for analytics, testing and development, and other activities

Early in 2016, CrossRealms will host information and training sessions, led by Cohesity and CrossRealms experts, on both the Cohesity product and hyperconvergence technology. Teng will be available to work with clients individually to determine if and when Cohesity makes sense for their organization and the best way to introduce or fully implement this new game-changing technology.

CrossRealms offers both IT consulting and managed services with fixed fees and monthly contracts to help clients predict and control IT costs. Industries that CrossRealms serves include health care, hospitality, retail, financial services, and manufacturing. CrossRealms, founded in 2008, enjoys a client retention rate of 98 percent and attributes its rapid growth to referrals from its loyal client base. The firm is headquartered in downtown Chicago and has office in Las Vegas, San Francisco, and McAllen, Texas.
