Your VMs. When You Need Them.

Virtualization is paving the path to digital transformation, but it's hard to accelerate your journey with legacy backup and recovery. Put your virtual machines to work, when you need them. Dramatically simplify data protection for your VMware environment with Cohesity’s web-scale solution.

Unified VM

Replace disparate, complex, costly, and difficult-to-manage backup software, target storage, archival, and disaster recovery (DR) solutions with Cohesity’s end-to-end, converged data protection solution. Save time with policy-based automation, auto-discover and auto-protect new VMs, and when needed, instantly mass restore all your VMware workloads.

Fast, app-consistent backups

Minimize backup windows by parallelizing jobs. Leverage app integration with agentless, app-consistent backups.

Remote replication

Protect data off-site and enable DR and migrations to remote sites, with built-in remote replication.

DR orchestration

Orchestrate entire site or application failovers using remotely replicated VM disks.


Consolidate backups, files, and test/dev copies for space efficiency. Ensure high availability with no single point of failure while scaling performance and capacity linearly. Eliminate expensive forklift upgrades and give your team more time to innovate.

RPOs of minutes, not days

Sub-five-minute RPOs using parallel data ingest and Cohesity zero-cost snapshots and clones get you to higher value work faster.

Instant file-level search

Quickly find VM and file-level data with Google-like wildcard search on VMs and individual files to accelerate recovery times.

Granular recover and restore

Recover individual VMs, restore files to source VMs, and recover individual application objects instantly.

Rapid mass restore

Get data back with instant mass restore--restoring thousands of VMs to any point in time.

Scale-out target storage

Seamlessly integrate with your current backup environment as a scale-out target device. Cohesity presents itself as an NFS/SMB target and supports all leading backup products.


Save time protecting vSphere, vSAN, and VMware Cloud Foundation. What vSAN does to simplify primary storage infrastructure while lowering costs and increasing performance, Cohesity does for secondary workloads.

Full integration with VMware

Simplify operations with vCenter integration and vSphere APIs. Get a full view of VMs and enable policy-based data protection.

vSAN complement

Concurrently protect primary VMs with vSAN and secondary VMs with Cohesity.

Leading cloud provider integration

Enjoy native cloud integration for easy data mobility into the public cloud.


Better protect your ever-increasing number of applications, while supporting tighter business requirements, including shorter RPO/RTOs, with a new approach to data protection for your vSphere environment. Improve SLAs with the Cohesity platform.

Policy-based management

Create policies with specific application SLAs, such as RPOs and retention policies. Assign policies to VMs based on SLAs.

Instant test/dev provisioning

Accelerate app time-to-market with rapid test and dev environment deployment using zero-cost, unlimited snapshots, and clones.

Analytics everywhere

Monitor capacity utilization and trends at a cluster, VM, and file levels to better plan for future capacity needs.

High throughput

Ensure low-latency, high throughput to mission-critical workloads with granular control to ensure service quality.
