Cohesity Wins NetEvents’ Innovation Leader Award in “Cloud/Datacentre” Category
Hyperconverged Secondary Storage Leader Recognized for Its Radically Efficient Platform
Santa Clara, Calif. – Oct. 5, 2017 – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, announced that it won the Innovation Leader – Cloud/Datacentre award, presented at the annual NetEvents Global Press & Analyst Summit evening celebration on Sept. 28 in San Jose. The award recognizes Cohesity’s radically efficient solution for optimizing storage to enable web-scale operations, and was delivered by Mike Sapien, principal analyst, enterprise services, at the digital research firm Ovum.
Cohesity was evaluated by an independent panel of highly respected judges comprised of IT professionals, industry gurus, the tech investment community including Silicon Valley VCs, leading technology press, and industry analysts from around the globe. These prestigious IoT, Cloud & Cybersecurity Innovation Awards celebrate the year’s most significant, innovative start-ups and established companies in the fast-growing Internet of Things (IoT), cloud/data center, and cybersecurity arenas.
Judges stated that web-scale operations will be driven by enhanced storage capabilities, and that the Cohesity platform simplifies and streamlines secondary storage, enabling customers to take better advantage of the mounds of data they are collecting. With storage often being a “race to the bottom” on cost, the judges recognized that the economic benefits that Cohesity delivers will be enormously important for the future of the market.
“Enterprises recognize the need to embrace a multi-cloud future, and that requires a storage platform that consolidates data for all use cases across on-premises and public cloud infrastructure,” said Cohesity VP of Marketing and Product Patrick Rogers. “We are honored by the latest recognition from the NetEvents and we plan to build on these innovations to meet the demand for efficient and productive data storage.”
