San Jose, Calif. – Feb. 1, 2021 –Cohesity today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cohesity as one of its 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for 2021 for the second year in a row. The annual list recognizes the leading cloud technology providers in five critical categories: infrastructure, monitoring and management, security, storage, and software.
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Companies were selected by the CRN editorial team based on their demonstrated commitment to working with channel partners and innovation in product and service development. CRN’s 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list not only honors exceptional technology suppliers, but it has become a trusted resource for solutions providers looking for cloud technology providers to partner with — presenting a list of the companies best positioned to support their cloud services needs.
This recognition follows Cohesity’s launch of the industry’s first comprehensive Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) solution. This new solution gives customers an incredibly easy way to make sure their on-premises and cloud-based data is backed up and protected. To take advantage of this new offering, customers simply sign up, protect and connect. The company also announced the general availability of Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a service, the first of many SaaS-based offerings to come as part of Cohesity’s DMaaS solution. The new service, available through Cohesity channel partners or AWS Consulting Partners on AWS Marketplace, gives customers an easy way to back up and protect both on-premises and cloud-based data through a SaaS model with infrastructure managed by Cohesity.
“This industry award shines a light on our new Data Management as a Service solution that gives Cohesity customers another way to radically simplify how they manage, protect, and derive greater value from the data,” said Mike Houghton, vice president of worldwide channel sales, Cohesity. “Many of our customers require a hybrid data model in addition to leveraging the benefits of the cloud; our multicloud data management platform supports on-premises, multicloud, and is available ‘as a service,’ providing the simplicity, choice, and flexibility that our customers need to meet their data management needs in a hybrid world.”
