Legacy Won’t Support Data Overload

Data volumes are growing exponentially, but your legacy NAS appliances can’t scale to accommodate the growth. New solutions that do claim to scale-out lock you into proprietary expensive hardware and fail to support global deduplication. You need a better solution for unstructured data.

Web-Scale File Storage for Unstructured Data

Cohesity delivers scale-out file storage for the cloud era in a modern, software-defined solution that eliminates the complexity and costly management of a fragmented and inefficient storage environment. Consolidate all file services workloads via multiprotocol access (NFS, SMB and S3) on a single platform that spans from core, to cloud and edge.

Expandable and efficient

Be ready, be resilient with the Cohesity DataPlatform.


Rely on our proven, distributed file storage solution for unstructured data, optimized for any file size.


Worry less with Cohesity, the only file system to guarantee data resiliency at scale with strict consistency.


Maximize your storage capacity with Cohesity’s sliding window variable block-length deduplication and compression across workload volumes.

Web-scale for simplicity

Consolidate all of your file storage workloads on a single solution, then easily and transparently scale both compute and capacity with Cohesity’s building block nodes.


Bring your traditional enterprise and the new cloud applications closer together with Cohesity’s support of a wide range of protocols.

Multiprotocol access

Access the same data set with Cohesity’s multiprotocol support (NFSv3, SMB2.x, SMB 3.0, and S3) on a single platform.

Limitless snapshots

Instantly provision test/dev environments with limitless and fully hydrated snapshots for granular file system views and writable snapshot clones.

Simple integration and strict data consistency

Windows and LDAP integration is easy - then scale to any size with strict data consistency.

Strict consistency

Cohesity provides strict consistency at scale, ensuring that users see the most current and protected data.

Windows integration

Manage file shares Microsoft management console, by using the MMC snap-in from Cohesity.

Centrify integration

No need for an LDAP proxy. Directly access the ID mapping information stored in Centrify AD through native integration.

Limitless scalability, on-prem and in the cloud

Cohesity lets you scale-out seamlessly to address unstructured data growth. Eliminate forklift upgrades. Pay as you grow.

Scale-out architecture

Scale-out limitlessly via our advanced distributed file system on-premises and in the cloud.


Deploy in your data center, private cloud, edge, or in a leading public cloud.

No gateways

Eliminate bolt-on cloud gateways and simplify direct data access into the cloud.


Archive into public cloud of your choice for long-term retention.


Replicate into the cloud for disaster recovery and test/dev.

Cloud tiering

Use our policy-based data tiering to move colder data to the cloud for transparent capacity expansion.

Support for workload diversity

Create an elastic IT environment with Cohesity’s software-defined model, so you can instantly and easily address changing business requirements. Gain unparalleled storage efficiency with true global deduplication, even across nodes.

True global dedupe

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

Accelerated development

Instantly provision zero-cost clones with Cohesity SnapTree for test/dev environments. Eliminate unnecessary data copies.

Quality of service

Built-in policies optimize to smooth performance during simultaneous use of files shares and large media, and backups and archives.

Erasure coding

Protect your data with flexibility and space efficiency with erasure coding and replication factor.

Fast search

Experience instant wildcard search results for any VM, file, or object ingested into the system.

Designed for data protection

Eliminate the reliance on traditional NDMP protocol with integrated software-defined data protection.

Role-based access control

Simplify user and group access to data using Windows Active Directory and Kerberos integration with role-based access control.

Policy-based backup

Simplify file system data protection with our fully-hydrated snapshots and integrated data protection software.


Leverage data-at-rest and data-in-flight encryption using the industry-standard 256-bit AES algorithm.

Write once, read many

Get long-term data retention with compliance controls that mandate that file systems cannot be modified during the lock time.


Easily establish user and file system quotas with audit logs.
