Don’t wait to automate

Whether you are moving workloads to the cloud or looking to automate your backups, there are multi-step manual tasks that are error prone and unreliable.

The future of ops is code

Cohesity Runbook and APIs enable infrastructure as code and automate data management. Achieve workload mobility and automate backups without the hassle.

Cohesity Runbook

Cohesity Runbook automates data management and provides orchestration so you can move and recover workloads anywhere by deploying infrastructure as code. Move workloads to the cloud or automate disaster recovery.

Streamline complex tasks

Speed manual steps and improve recovery times. Orchestration ensures all steps and dependencies are properly timed and executed.

Quickly design workflows

Design your automation workflow in minutes with a graphical design canvas and integrate with your choice of tools through APIs.

Encapsulate best practices

Avoid errors and failures when moving workloads and failing over from one location to another. Get predictable workload mobility every time.

Visualize Automation

Watch this demo of Cohesity Runbook and learn how easy it is to design, validate, and execute your automation workflows for workload mobility.

Work with your automation tools

Use your choice of automation and orchestration tools, like VMware vRealize Automation and ServiceNow, with Cohesity to improve the delivery and ongoing management of modern data center infrastructure.

Policy extension

Use Cohesity’s rich set of REST APIs for policy-based automation of data management.

Easy self-service

Give users fast self-service access to authorized data and automate tasks such as policy, search and restore, and cloning.

Automate apps and data

Automate apps and data workflows for backup, workload migrations, and disaster recovery.

Automate with VMware vRealize

Simplify VM protection with policy-based automation with Cohesity DataProtect and VMware vRealize. Using vRealize blueprints and service catalogs, perform backup as a service, manage complete VM lifecycles, and more.

Blueprint protection

With Cohesity APIs and VMware vRealize Orchestrator, blueprints are presented with a list of Cohesity Protection Jobs.

Job movement

Easily move VMs across protection jobs. With vRealize Orchestrator integration, see the list of available backup jobs.

Retention policy compliance

Destroy VMs when they’re no longer needed. Complete a VM lifecycle by removing the VM from vCenter and the Cohesity job.

Automation with ServiceNow

Protect VMs with policy-based automation using ServiceNow for the centralized management of service requests, tickets, and approvals.

Request management

Create tickets for each action and send service requests for approvals. Manage VM lifecycle while allowing users to initiate and manage their requests.

Self-service management

Users can manage their configurations, incidents, and make changes on demand to their backup schedule and SLA, reducing incident overhead.


Provide a dashboard and self-service catalog for self-provisioning, cloning a VM for dev/test, and seeing resource utilization.


Cohesity’s intelligent data platform simplifies our VM backups and replication. By consolidating our entire backup environment into a single system, we now have one simple and powerful, policy-driven interface to manage end-to-end data protection for our extensive virtual infrastructure. Furthermore, with Cohesity CloudArchive we can now easily and safely leverage public cloud services for the long-term retention of our critical corporate data.
