Cohesity Named a Storage Technologies “Cool Vendor” by Gartner
Vendors Selected for the “Cool Vendor” Report are Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing
Santa Clara, Calif. – May 18, 2017 – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced it has been included in the Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2017 report by Dave Russell, Arun Chandrasekaran, Julia Palmer, Raj Bala, Alan Dayley, Pushan Rinnen and Garth Landers at Gartner, Inc. The report notes that “it has become painfully evident that storage capacity demands, and expectations for far more rapid provisioning of that storage, have far outpaced the ability of [infrastructure and operations] team’s capabilities. Far-more-automated systems are required to restore a sense of balance, that is, storage solutions that offer much greater scale, but also much more automation.”
“We believe Cohesity’s inclusion in the ‘Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2017’ report by Gartner offers further validation of our revolutionary secondary storage approach that empowers customers to scale seamlessly and efficiently across both on-premises and public cloud infrastructures,” said Cohesity Vice President of Marketing and Product, Patrick Rogers. “We consolidate and simplify unnecessarily complex secondary storage environments. The enthusiastic response we’ve received from customers has been a huge driver for our rapidly growing business.”
Cohesity, which recently raised $90 million in its Series C funding round, offers a radically efficient way for enterprises to manage surging data volume and complexity. Cohesity DataPlatform replaces fragmented legacy solutions for different secondary storage workloads – from data protection to analytics – and converges all secondary data use cases on a single, software-defined platform that spans both on-premises and public cloud environments. Customers leveraging Cohesity’s web-scale platform dramatically reduce storage capacity requirements, simplify complex data management processes and extract more value from their data.
