Cohesity Helios SaaS Solution Ushers In a New Era for Global Secondary Data and App Management That Is Simple, Smart, Proactive and Highly Efficient

Machine-Driven Predictive Analytics Empowers Enterprises to Accelerate IT and Business Productivity and Extract Valuable Insights From Massive Volumes of Previously Untapped Data

San Jose, Calif. – Aug. 21, 2018Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced the release of Cohesity Helios, a SaaS-based management solution that empowers customers to see, manage, and take action on their secondary data and applications globally — from a single dashboard — while benefiting from powerful analytics and machine learning (ML) capabilities that generate valuable insights from untapped data.

Today, enterprise customers no longer have all of their secondary data and apps in one data center. Instead, they are spread across multiple silos in different locations globally, creating mass data fragmentation challenges. Cohesity DataPlatform created a new way for organizations to consolidate secondary data and apps — like backup, test/dev, archives and analytics — in a single hyperconverged solution. Helios builds on this foundation and furthers Cohesity’s vision by giving customers unprecedented global access, visibility, and control of their secondary apps and data across all their Cohesity DataPlatform sites whether on-premises, in the cloud, or at the edge.

“We are ushering in a new way to address mass data fragmentation challenges that are plaguing enterprises across virtually every industry,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and founder of Cohesity. “With Helios, we now are providing businesses with a single, global unified platform for their secondary data and apps in a way that’s smart, incredibly efficient and brings new insights to massive volumes of untapped data.”

“Customers globally are grappling with how to easily manage skyrocketing volumes of secondary data and applications that are spread across silos on-premises and in the cloud,” said Mark Peters, principal analyst and practice director, ESG. “Cohesity Helios gives customers innovative ways to view and manage their global secondary data and applications, making it much easier to accelerate IT productivity, simplify business planning, and derive insights from untapped data.”

Accelerating IT Productivity
With Helios, enterprises have the ability to roll out policies or make upgrades across their entire Cohesity multi-cluster environment with a single click, drastically simplifying IT operations. Additional features make infrastructure management even more efficient:

Maximizing Agility and Probing Untapped Data for Meaningful Insights
Helios provides customers with new levels of agility. Because customers can see all of their Cohesity sites in one view, organizations can easily move data from one location to another, maximizing capacity and improving disaster recovery while optimizing costs. Organizations can also use the Cohesity Analytics Workbench (AWB) to drive meaningful insights from untapped data, starting with three applications:

“Munson Healthcare is committed to providing top quality care to our patients through a dedicated team of 9,000 professionals who operate across nine hospitals,” said Josh Humphrey, senior systems administrator, Munson Healthcare. “It is critical that we manage our secondary data and applications spread across multiple locations in the most efficient way possible while also ensuring we meet stringent compliance requirements by “lighting up” untapped secondary data. Helios can help us directly address these challenges while continuing to focus resources where they are needed most — on our patients.”
