IDC forecasts that by 2025 the global datasphere will grow to 163ZB (that is a trillion gigabytes). That's ten times the 16.1ZB of data generated in 2016, and majority of that being unstructured data.

Legacy NAS appliances do not scale to address your growing data volume. And more recent NAS solutions claiming scale-out are delivered on expensive proprietary hardware appliances, increasing your expense. Due to their architecture, these NAS solutions face scaling limitations and do not support global deduplication. Additionally to leverage benefits of the public cloud, they rely on bolt-on cloud gateways, which adds cost and complexity.

True Enterprise-class
Scale-out NAS

Enjoy true globally distributed file storage with Cohesity DataPlatform, a web-scale hyperconverged secondary storage platform. As an enterprise-class, scale-out NAS, DataPlatform allows highly available and secure access via NFS and SMB protocols.

Unlimited Scalability

Designed with Google-like web-scale principles, Cohesity DataPlatform scales linearly to address your growing data needs. No need to over-provision. Pay-as-you-grow with your Cohesity cluster and never worry about another forklift upgrade.

Data Resiliency at Scale

Cohesity is the only file system to guarantee data resiliency at scale with strict consistency. Unlike other scale-out NAS solutions, Cohesity propagates the data across the cluster before acknowledging the data write to the client.

Global Data Efficiency

Maximize your storage efficiency with Cohesity true global variable block length deduplication and compression. Unlike others, Cohesity deduplicates across the cluster, between different workloads, like VMs, physical machines, databases, NAS, and file share. In addition, Cohesity DataPlatform also supports Erasure Coding (2:1, 4:2, 5:2) and Replication Factor that helps to reduce data center footprint.


Eliminate expensive proprietary vendor specific hardware. Cohesity DataPlatform is a software-defined solution that you can adopt as a VM, Cohesity appliance or on qualified HPE Proliant and Cisco UCS servers.


Integrate natively with AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud to leverage the economics and elasticity of the public cloud. Eliminate bolt-on cloud gateways and simplify direct data access into the cloud.
