DMaaS, a portfolio of offerings built atop the Cohesity Helios platform, radically simplifies the way data is backed up, secured, governed, and analyzed. It provides capacity-based pricing, eliminates infrastructure and silos, and consolidates data from multiple use cases such as data backup and archiving, disaster recovery, file and object services, copy data management, and analytics - all provided through a Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model.
Our first DMaaS offering is Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service, which provides backup and recovery capabilities (BaaS).
Our second DMaaS offering is Cohesity SiteContinuity, which provides SaaS-based automated disaster recovery failover and failback orchestration to the AWS public cloud for disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). DRaaS is currently in preview.
Customers access and use all DMaaS offerings, including DataProtect, directly through the Cohesity Helios management GUI.
Please sign up for the free trial here. Once our representative validates your sign-up information, you will receive an activation email with instructions to set up your account and start using your free trial.
Setup for both the free trial and the paid service is designed to be simple. Once your account has been validated you can start the setup process. Setup time will vary depending on the size of your environment, but many customers have gotten ready to start backups in 30 minutes or less.
Your data is secured both in transit and at rest - and we give you the option to manage your own encryption keys or have our service manage them for you. For more information visit our Security & Trust page.
The Cohesity Helios platform in which DMaaS offerings run on is SOC 2 Type II certified on the Security, Availability, and Confidentiality Trust Services Categories. Cohesity DataProtect maintains Common Criteria EAL2 and FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certificates. Additionally, Cohesity engages customers in Business Associate Agreements (BAA), giving organizations powerful tools to help achieve compliance with regulations like HIPAA.
Yes. DataProtect delivered as a Service can be used together with customer managed Cohesity instances. The Cohesity Helios multicloud data platform provides a single GUI that provides management and control for both DMaaS offerings and customer-managed infrastructure running on-prem.
DataProtect delivered as a Service supports back up of on-prem VMware, Hyper-V, NAS (NetApp, Isilon, and generic files), Microsoft 365 (Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams), Amazon EC2, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and Windows and Linux physical servers. We plan to continue to add support for more on-prem and cloud data sources throughout 2021.
A 30 day retention policy is included by default. If you require a different retention period we have custom options to meet your needs. Please contact us for more details.
Details on SiteContinuity delivered as a Service will follow shortly.
Cohesity guarantees that the DataProtect delivered as a Service offer has an availability SLA of 99.9%. You can define your own backup SLAs and monitor performance through the Helios management GUI. Please see our Service Level Agreement for more details.
Customers will be billed based on the front end terabyte (TB) used capacity on the data sources being protected. For example, if you have a 1TB provisioned disk volume with 95GB of files to back up, 95GB will count towards your capacity subscription. You can subscribe to as little as 1TB of capacity.
You can order directly from AWS Marketplace or follow the “Buy Now on AWS Marketplace” button on our website. If your environment is larger than 25TB, or if you have specific requirements that need to be addressed, or if you prefer to purchase through one of our resellers, please contact us.

DataProtect delivered as a Service provides enterprise grade backup, is part of a true hybrid operational experience, and is part of a much more comprehensive DMaaS portfolio of offerings so you can do more with your data. Many others are point backup as a service solutions that introduce more operational and data silos. Here’s more on how we are different:
- True hybrid experience - unlike other BaaS that operate in a silo, DataProtect delivered as Service is built on the same Helios platform and managed with the same UI as customer managed Cohesity clusters that are deployed on-premises or at other locations. With Cohesity, you get simplified management across environments with a truly consistent hybrid experience.
- Comprehensive data management - that goes beyond backup. With other as a Service offerings such as disaster recovery, file and object services, copy data management, and analytics on the horizon, backup is just the beginning.
- Enterprise-grade backup and recovery - that scales on demand, provides flexible security controls, supports a wide range of cloud and on-premises workloads, and has flexible policy management to meet enterprise level SLA and compliance.
Yes. Like many SaaS products, while we built DMaaS on top of one cloud provider, our offerings are intended to provide universal coverage for all types of data sources, whether from other cloud providers or SaaS applications. For example, we support Microsoft 365 and expect to support other cloud and SaaS sources in the future.
