Building blocks for simplified, secure data management on-premises
Each Cohesity C5000 hyperconverged node provides compute, flash, and secure HDD capacity to consolidate data and execute workflows. Scale your capacity as needed, starting with as few as three nodes, and scale out linearly by adding individual nodes as needed.
Eliminate multiple point products and user interfaces. Simplify your IT infrastructure by collapsing compute and storage into a single node.
Get the best of both worlds. The hybrid design includes capacity-optimized self-encrypting HDD and higher performance SSDs for faster IO performance.
No more rip-and-replace. Scale your Cohesity cluster limitlessly to meet your evolving business requirements.
Pay as you grow
Data and business evolve. Cohesity’s flexible architecture gives you the freedom to scale and size your cluster anytime without downtime.
The smartest way to optimize cost, scale, and efficiency for your unstructured data. Manage, secure, and do more with your data with next-level software-defined file and object services for the hybrid cloud.
A hyperconverged node refers to a component within a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) system. HCI combines compute, storage, and networking resources into a single integrated appliance or node, providing a tightly integrated solution for virtualized environments.
A hyperconverged node typically consists of a physical server with compute resources (such as CPUs, RAM, and local storage) and software-defined storage capabilities. It runs virtualization software that abstracts and manages the underlying hardware resources. The node participates in a cluster with other hyperconverged nodes, forming a distributed pool of resources that can be collectively managed.
Each hyperconverged node not only hosts virtual machines but also contributes its local storage capacity to the shared storage pool. The storage is typically implemented using a distributed file system or virtual SAN technology, which provides redundancy, data protection, and high availability across the cluster.
Using hyperconverged nodes simplifies infrastructure management, reduces complexity, and enables scalability since you can add or remove nodes as needed. They eliminate the need for separate storage arrays and dedicated network storage protocols, streamlining the deployment and management of virtualized environments.
Hyperconverged nodes are a fundamental building block of hyperconverged infrastructure systems, enabling organizations to achieve greater agility, flexibility, and efficiency in their data centers.
