Your Secondary Data: Protected and Productive with Cohesity

Every organization protects essential data, but not every business can make it instantly available when it's needed, where it's needed. That's why there's Cohesity.

Cohesity delivers web-scale simplicity for secondary data that eliminates silos and puts data to work. Enterprises rely on our software-defined, hyperconverged platform to radically streamline backup and data protection, converge file and object services, quickly deliver test/dev instances, and provide analytic functions on a single, global data store. Customers and partners, including Global 1000 companies and federal agencies, tired of data center complexity are modernizing and scaling secondary data protection with Cohesity.

"Cohesity is committed to continuous innovation, consolidating and simplifying the management of data centers and clouds. That's how we are going to help change the world." -- Mohit Aron, CEO
