Tech company expands with move to Downtown San José from Santa Clara
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, will hold a grand opening at its new headquarters offices in Downtown San José at 5 PM, Monday, December 11, 2017. The ceremony will be attended by San José Mayor Sam Liccardo and City Councilmember Raul Peralez (District 3).
With two floors of Riverpark Tower II, 300 Park Avenue, Cohesity’s 300 employees will occupy 40,000 square feet of space, triple the former Santa Clara facilities. The company plans to add another 200 employees by the end of 2018.
“We are incredibly proud to call San José our new home, and we look forward to playing an active role in the growing downtown business community,” said Cohesity founder and CEO, Mohit Aron. “This move is an important step in Cohesity’s growth and maturation, and will serve as a foundation for sustained employee engagement and success as we continue to grow.”
In citing reasons for the move, Aron pointed out that company culture is important to Cohesity, and being able to keep the entire local team together in one building to facilitate more communication and engagement was a key factor. Added to which, proximity to many global technology firms in a vibrant urban environment will help the company recruit talent.
“We warmly welcome Cohesity to Downtown San José –where they will join global tech companies like Adobe, Zoom, Xactly, and Pinger,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo. “We look forward to seeing their employees enjoying the vibrancy of Downtown’s global cuisine, theaters, and convenient access to Silicon Valley’s international airport. On behalf of our city, thank you to Cohesity for investing in the urban center of Silicon Valley.”
Cohesity consolidates secondary storage silos onto a hyperconverged, web-scale data platform that spans both private and public clouds. Enterprise customers begin by radically streamlining their backup and data protection, then converge file and object services, test/dev instances and analytic functions to provide a global data store. Cohesity counts many Global 1000 companies among its rapidly growing customer base. CRN named Cohesity a Top 25 Disrupter and one of the 10 Coolest Hyperconverged Products of 2016. Cohesity was recognized as a “top workplace” by the Bay Area News Group for two consecutive years and won TMC’s “2017 Tech Culture Award,” as well as being included in Forbes’ 2017 list of the 25 “Next Billion-Dollar Startups”. Cohesity has established partnerships working with other important businesses in the area, including HPE and Cisco, both of which are also strategic investors in the company.
