Get unlimited scalability with global deduplication efficiency.

arrowDownload solution brief

Unleash unstructured data

Traditional file storage limits the types and amount of unstructured data your enterprise can protect and manage. Take advantage of S3-compatible object storage that offers unrestrained scale and for unstructured data.

Web-scale object storage for secondary data

Cohesity delivers an enterprise-ready S3 compatible object storage solution. Address growing data volumes starting with as few as three nodes. Expand your cluster with our pay-as-you-grow model.

Simple, efficient and cloud-ready

Consolidate objects, files, data protection, and test/dev copies on the Cohesity DataPlatform.

Simplified data management

Cohesity eliminates unnecessary data copies by accessing the same data set using S3, NFS and SMB protocols.

Global storage efficiency

Maximize storage efficiency with the only S3-compatible object storage with global sliding window variable-length deduplication.

Native cloud integration

Integrates natively with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.

Unlimited flexibility

Manage all your data through the protocol of your choice. Enjoy seamless data interchange between Windows, Linux/Unix, and object environments.

Multiprotocol support

Connect with data the way you want with support for applications across all major enterprise operating systems, including SMB and NFS.

Role-based access control

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

No more copies

Eliminate the effort and cost of creating data copies across silos. Get instantaneous access to zero-cost copies of VM and database backups.

Centrify integration

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

External KMS integration

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

Read anything as S3

Data is always readable as S3 whether written as NFS, SMB, or S3.


Consolidate file shares, backup and archive workloads, logs, media, test/dev and analytics on the Cohesity DataPlatform. Rely on a proven simple, yet powerful web-scale platform for more reliable and available storage.

Quality of service

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

Minimal footprint

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

Fast search

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

Designed for data protection

Significantly simplify data protection and object store onto a single platform.

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.

Strict consistency

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

Write once, read many

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

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Employ MFA to restrict unauthorized access to backups. Prevent ransomware attacks from freezing restores.

Backups and disaster recovery are managed seamlessly on the same platform

A single pane of glass to address everything from minor data restores to entire site restores.


Take advantage of public cloud elasticity and the economics with Cohesity’s native cloud integration. Archive into public cloud services for long-term retention with Cohesity. Utilize cloud tiering for transparent capacity expansion into the cloud. Replicate into the cloud for disaster recovery with geo redundancy.

We’ve executed a validation test of Cohesity under massive scaling – pushing their storage cluster to sizes far past what they’ve previously publicly tested. The result is striking... We documented linearly accumulating performance across several types of IO, all the way up to our cluster test target of 256 Cohesity storage nodes.
