New Offerings and Expanded Partner Program Enable Service Providers to Quickly Increase Revenue, Lower TCO, and Deliver Superior Customer Experiences
San Jose, Calif. – Oct. 2, 2018 – Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced an expansion of the Cohesity Partner Program that empowers service providers to rapidly build and deliver highly differentiated secondary data and application services to meet the growing demands of enterprise customers. Service providers that join the Cohesity Partner Program can now utilize new capabilities in the Cohesity DataPlatform including multi-tenancy, tenant self-service, and chargeback reporting to deliver high-value services across private, public, and hybrid clouds within one web-scale platform.
Cohesity also announced today the Cohesity Powered trust mark, a designation available only to qualified partners who build their businesses on Cohesity’s trusted platform and adhere to strict quality standards. The trust mark enables partners to further differentiate their value in the market while driving customer preference for their innovative services.
“The Cohesity Partner Program gives service providers innovative ways to help customers directly address the complexities of mass data fragmentation while harnessing the power of secondary data and applications,” said Mohit Aron, founder and CEO, Cohesity. “By building their own solutions on Cohesity’s platform, coupled with the credibility of the Cohesity Powered trust mark, service providers can confidently offer a wider array of value-added services to their customers, grow their businesses, and help customers derive the most value from their secondary data.”
According to the recent 451 Research study, Voice of the Enterprise: Cloud, Hosting and Managed Services, Budgets and Outlook 2017, 70 percent of businesses say they are moving toward multi-cloud/hybrid IT environments1. However, few organizations have the skills and staff required to navigate this new world and are looking to service providers for a full-range of cloud and managed services—everything from planning and migration to security and data services, and more. Today’s announcement gives service providers access to Cohesity’s continuous innovation that can fuel their businesses and help their customers achieve faster time to value.
Seizing the $60B Market for Secondary Data and Applications
Service providers joining the Cohesity Partner Program are ideally positioned to capture some of the $60 billion total addressable market (TAM) for secondary data and applications by hosting Cohesity on customers’ premises, in a colocation facility, in their own data centers, or on leading hyperscale public clouds—in any and all combinations. They can combine the Cohesity DataPlatform, unified management with Cohesity Helios, and integration with VMware vCloud Director to deliver the following capabilities:
