Why is Cohesity disrupting integrated secondary storage and data protection? Because secondary storage is one of the biggest pain points for companies, and our Founder and CEO, Mohit Aron, recognized this and figured out a way to solve it.
In a recent report, Forrester outlines how secondary storage and data protection technology will gain widespread adoption in 24 months, and what are the drivers behind this trend – including Cohesity’s pivotal role.
Secondary storage “is complex and highly fragmented. It includes things like backups, cloud storage, test and development. Most businesses use a hodgepodge of appliances to try and manage this, but they can’t get a handle on it. The lack of a strategy causes businesses to waste enormous amounts of capacity and money. Currently about half of secondary storage exists as duplicates,” writes Zeus Kerravala, in his NetworkWorld article, Cohesity makes it easier to manage secondary storage.
The Forrester report explains how Cohesity is among a small handful of vendors trying to change the way enterprises manage secondary storage, data protection, and data copies to attain a one-second recovery point objective (RPO) for mission-critical applications.
“Data protection suffers from archaic tools and processes, a lack of innovation and architectural change, and the need for proprietary secondary storage alongside primary storage and software. No single solution supports fast, reliable recovery and secondary data copies,” Forrester states in its report.
Forrester highlights Cohesity as an established vendor, which is “delivering advanced capabilities to address specific problems in the secondary storage and data protection space.”
