Consolidate Your Secondary Data and Apps

Inspired by web-scale principles, Cohesity DataPlatform, a software-defined scale-out solution consolidates all your secondary workloads, including backup and recovery, files and objects, test/dev and analytics in a single, cloud-native solution.

Simplified Management

Manage and provision all your secondary data through a single pane of glass that spans from your core to the cloud with Cloud Edition and edges with Virtual Edition.

Flexible Architecture

Software-defined solution that easily responds to your changing business needs, on-premises or in any cloud.

Efficient Operation

Reduce your data footprint by consolidating multiple workloads on a single platform. Take advantage of true global dedupe, compression and erasure coding.

One Platform, Endless Possibilities

Now you can truly do more with less. Stop the data sprawl across multiple data silos by converging your secondary data on a single cloud-ready solution. Make your backup and unstructured data productive to accelerate application development and gain data insight to support business objects. Recover applications instantly by creating and running the clone of the backup VM directly from the Cohesity platform.

Web-scale distributed file system

Cohesity SpanFS, a distributed file system with simultaneous NFS, SMB and S3 protocols supports both sequential and random IOs to address all secondary data workloads.

Accelerate application development

Instantly provision zero-cost clones with Cohesity patented SnapTree to provision test/dev environments for application development. Eliminate unnecessary data copies with unlimited snaps on Coheity.

In-depth data insight

Harness the power of your data by gaining greater visibility into your data with Cohesity Analytics Workbench. Cohesity advanced data analytics helps you make informed decisions and meet complex compliance requirements head-on.

Web-Scale Simplicity for Cloud Era

Cohesity brings web-scale benefits first pioneered by hyperscalers like Google and Facebook to enterprises with DataPlatform, a software-defined solution. Simplify your secondary data management and achieve operational efficiency.

Software-defined model

Gain flexibility by extracting the value and intelligence in the software-layer and eliminate dependency on proprietary point appliances. Chose to run on your choice of certified appliances or software-only version for cloud and remote/edge locations.

Unlimited scalability

Start with as little as three nodes and grow limitlessly on-premises or in the cloud with a pay-as-you-grow model.

Non-disruptive upgrades

Always-on availability for business continuity. Easily expand your cluster or perform rolling upgrades with zero impact.

Automated global indexing

Choose automated global indexing powering Google-like search. This enables instant wildcard searches for any VM, file, or object ingested into the system.

Policy-based automation

Automate data services by assigning policies to individual jobs and applications based on your SLA requirements.

Software agnostic

Seamlessly integrate Cohesity DataPlatform as a scale-out dedupe target storage for your existing backup software.


Cohesity delivers scale-out file and object storage in a limitless, pay-as-you-grow model to address your data growth. No more comprehensive updates.

Reduce data footprint with compression

Multiple compression algorithms supported, including Gzip, Snappy and Zstandard.

Global deduplication within and across nodes

Global variable length dedupe across workloads and protocols throughout the cluster helps to reduce data footprint.

Quality of service

Eliminate noisy neighbor problems. Built-in policies allow you to optimize performance so you can use Cohesity simultaneously for files shares and large media, along with backups and archives.

Data Integrity for Modern Web-scale Environments

Guaranteed data resiliency with Cohesity’s fault-tolerant system that is designed to ensure data integrity under all conditions.

Guaranteed data resiliency

Avoid “file-not-found” errors with Cohesity DataPlatform. Powered by SpanFS, get guaranteed data resiliency with strict consistency at scale.

Two-node/two-disk failure tolerance support

Auto balance workloads and ensure smooth business continuity with web-scale resiliency.

Erasure coding and replication factor

Protection with flexibility and space efficiency with erasure coding 2:1, 4:2, and 5:2, and replication factor.

Cloud-Ready for Easy Deployment

Designed with the cloud in mind, Cohesity DataPlatform eliminates dependency on bolt-on cloud gateways. Gain easy and fast data and application mobility into leading public cloud providers with a cloud-native architecture. Take advantage of public clouds’ elasticity and economics with policy-based automation for archiving, tiering, and replication to the cloud.

Seamless public cloud compatibility

Easily extend to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud without installing or managing cloud gateways.

Native protocol access

Move your data seamlessly to the cloud and even access it within the cloud. Unlike traditional siloed solutions, no need to rely on bolt-on gateways or bring the data back on-prem to access it.

Policy-based, automated cloud archiving and tiering

Leverage public clouds’ elasticity for automated tiering, while streamlining and removing operational bottlenecks with legacy tape by archiving directly into the cloud.

Unified Global Management

Your business depends on IT for success, yet managing a sprawling global infrastructure for data and applications makes it hard for IT to operate efficiently, mitigate risk, provide uninterrupted services, and deliver innovation. Cohesity Helios is a simple, smart, and proactive SaaS-based management solution, providing a single view and global management of all your secondary data and applications, spanning all locations—on-premises, cloud, and edge.

The Gorilla Guide to Hyperconverged Secondary Storage

Hyperconverged Secondary Storage (HCSS) converges all secondary storage into a single solution, integrating the management of what had been individual silos of storage. As a unified solution, HCSS can achieve capacity efficiency that’s impossible when storage is broken out into isolated solutions.
