iomart chose Cohesity’s hyperconverged platform because it supports a distributed hybrid and multi-cloud strategy as well as delivering disaster recovery, test/dev, multi-site replication, and data analytics. Sharpe also adds, “iomart has partnered with Cohesity to deliver increased data resilience for customers struggling with data sprawl. The Cohesity technology allows iomart to aggregate all their secondary data, whether it’s on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid model, onto a single, unified, scalable platform. It enhances our data protection and data management services portfolio and gives us a new competitive advantage.”
In addition to protecting data from a backup perspective, Cohesity’s software-defined platform allows near instant virtual machine recovery, reducing spend on long term retention and giving the ability to recreate virtual infrastructure on iomart’s shared Cloud Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) platform.
Cohesity fits into our commitment to deliver truly hybrid solutions to our customers. Not only can it protect and maintain local storage and data requirements at the edge, it can also seamlessly extend to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure without requiring separate cloud gateways. Customers can also choose to replicate their protected data into iomart’s business continuity cloud for near instant Disaster Recovery as a Service.”
