The Power of Partnership

Data differentiates your business. Managing its exponential growth with point products has led to mass data fragmentation, and made it impossible to protect and harness for greater value. In partnership, Cisco and Cohesity consolidate all of your data in an integrated solution that improves data visibility, protection, and use on-premises and in multi-clouds.

Simplified, End to End Solution

Our joint solution puts your data to work with hyperconverged simplicity, multi-cloud agility, and global efficiency and visibility.

Validated and Ready

A Cisco Validated Design provides IT prescriptive guidance for running Cohesity software with Cisco HyperFlex within Cisco UCS domains.

Easy to purchase

With availability on the Cisco Global Price List, IT teams can procure a complete Cisco and Cohesity solution from a single source through Cisco and its channel partners.

Cohesity’s approach to combining its software with Cisco’s UCS servers demonstrates the power of software-defined storage platforms. Cohesity and Cisco working together to present a reference architecture for Cohesity software on Cisco is a major step forward.

Edgardo Villalobos, Technical Architect Lab Manager, AHEAD

As data centers increase their investment in both hyperconvergence and software-defined infrastructures, the combination of Cohesity’s powerful DataPlatform software with Cisco’s UCS systems fits this strategy nicely. The joint Cohesity-Cisco UCS solution extends infrastructure consolidation beyond primary workloads into secondary workloads, which comprise the bulk of data center footprint today. We’re pleased to be partnered with both companies to offer this compelling solution to our customers.

John Bristol, Vice President of Architecture, TRACE3

Data silos in secondary storage are a growing problem for enterprises. Combining Cohesity’s distributed secondary storage software with Cisco UCS systems radically simplifies operations and reduces costs for large enterprises. The combination of Cohesity’s intelligent, web-scale software running on Cisco’s leading server and storage infrastructure enables consolidation of a wide range of storage use cases, and brings hyperconvergence to another level of value in the data center.
