Since Emerging From Stealth, the Secondary Storage Leader Has Reached Major Corporate, Customer, and Partner Milestones
Santa Clara, CA. – June 28, 2016 Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced dramatic growth in the year following its public launch, with revenue increases of more than 100 percent each quarter and a workforce that has tripled in size. The Cohesity Data Platform has garnered acclaim from customers and industry analysts as the first solution to consolidate all secondary storage use cases, including backup, file services, test/dev, and analytics, onto an intelligent, unified platform with infinite scalability.
Marquee brands including Brown & Brown Insurance, Ultimate Software, Genex Services, Tribune Media, Credit Acceptance, Cvent, GS1 Canada, and the Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania have leveraged the Cohesity Data Platform to simplify operations and reduce costs for secondary storage. Eighty percent of its installations serve enterprise companies with more than 1000 employees, and Cohesity has achieved a 100 percent customer retention rate. Many of its customers, such as Tribune Media, GS1, and Credit Acceptance, have expanded their deployments within the first year to realize greater efficiency and savings. Cohesity has achieved more than 60 site installations to date, representing greater than 10 petabytes of protected storage capacity.
“We’re extremely pleased by the rapid adoption of Cohesity products,” said Cohesity Chief Operating Officer Riccardo Di Blasio. “Within two quarters of shipping our first GA systems, we have 50 new incremental installations, with two-thirds of our bookings from large enterprise companies with greater than $1 billion in annual revenues. Customers appreciate the simplicity and enduring value we bring to their data centers. In fact, more than one third of our customers have made repeat purchases, as they consolidate more of their secondary storage onto Cohesity’s data platform”.
Over the past year, industry experts have validated Cohesity’s radically efficient approach to data storage and management with awards and certifications. Cohesity was named a TiE50 Top Startup by the premier Silicon Valley-based network for global entrepreneurs, and the Enterprise Strategy Group validated the linear scalability of the Cohesity DataPlatform in 32- node cluster lab tests. Cohesity was also recognized as a 2016 Top Workplace by the Bay Area News Group.
Cohesity has forged relationships with a growing number of channel partners as part of the company’s Revolution Partner Network. Most recently, Cohesity has announced partnerships with Trace3, Kovarus, IMPEX, Denali Advanced Integration, World Wide Technology, Datalink and SHI to add to a growing list of over 50 channel partners in North America. Cohesity has also expanded globally, partnering with Ethos Technology and DataSolutions, to serve customers in the Northern EMEA region.
On the technology front, Cohesity has doubled down on key partnerships with innovative storage providers. In March 2016, Cohesity announced that it is helping customers deploy all- flash arrays from Pure Storage for mission-critical operations alongside Cohesity’s hyperconverged data platform to manage the other 80 percent of data typically held in secondary storage. Building on its hybrid cloud strategy, Cohesity also unveiled new cloud storage capabilities through a set of pre-built integrations with Amazon S3 and Glacier, Google Nearline, and Microsoft Azure.
