Cohesity Announces EMEA Expansion to Meet Escalating Demand
Hyperconverged Secondary Storage Leader Unveils Sales and Channel Network to Serve Global Market; Company Will Showcase Offerings at VMworld Europe
Santa Clara, CA. – Oct. 5, 2016 – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced expansion into Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), after more than a year of momentous growth in North America. Through a new sales and channel program run from offices in Copenhagen, London and Milan, Cohesity will meet increased global demand for its solutions from enterprises across the globe. The company will showcase its hyperconverged secondary storage technology at VMworld Europe from Oct. 17 – 20. 17 – 20.
“Enterprises around the globe are waking up to the possibilities of cutting costs and increasing efficiency for their secondary storage environments with a single, hyperconverged platform,” said Riccardo Di Blasio, chief operating officer at Cohesity. “Already, we have made key sales hires and partnered with leading channel providers in EMEA to meet the demand we are seeing for Cohesity. We are excited about the prospect of helping our customers leverage the next generation of innovative storage technologies to simplify data infrastructure and reduce costs.”
Since emerging from stealth in June 2015, Cohesity has grown rapidly with the industry’s first unified, web-scale secondary storage platform, which consolidates all use cases including backups, test/dev, file services and analytics onto an intelligent, infinitely scalable platform. By converging silos created by conventional, point solutions for secondary storage workloads, enterprises gain a complete view of their data assets and reduce their costs significantly.
What Partners and Distributors Are Saying About Cohesity
“Hyperconverged secondary storage has taken off in the year since Cohesity first introduced the technology, and Ethos is excited to bring their solution to customers in the EMEA market. Cohesity’s unified platform solves urgent data storage challenges, and businesses are eager to consolidate fragmented and inefficient point solutions.”
– Omar Galbraith, CEO, Ethos Technology
“The value of converging secondary storage workloads such as back-up, test-dev, and file services on a unified, web-scale platform has quickly been proven through an overwhelming number of successful deployments in the U.S. The way that demand has crossed into international markets just one year after public launch shows how desperately enterprises need a solution to simplify secondary data storage. We are delighted to be named a distribution partner for Cohesity.”
– Michael O’Hara, Group Managing Director, DataSolutions
“We’re excited to partner with Cohesity to bring the radical efficiency of hyperconverged secondary storage to a global customer base. Many businesses had overlooked secondary storage even though it typically covers 80 percent of enterprise data, but there’s a spotlight on it now.”
– Dan Hayden-Hammond, Global Sales Director, Viadex
