Cohesity has announced that it has formed a strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to address the growing customer need for data management that is flexible, available, scalable and reliable. Together, both companies are bringing to market a modern Data Management-as-a-Service (DMaaS) offering unlike any other on the market today.
The DMaaS solution is designed to provide enterprise and mid-size customers with a radically simple way to back up, secure, govern and analyse their data, all managed directly by Cohesity and hosted on AWS.
As data continues to grow exponentially, many organisations are looking to manage data in ways that allow their IT teams to focus on policy versus infrastructure, provide consumption-based pricing, accelerate the move to the cloud, make it easy to derive value from data, remove data infrastructure silos and support multiple use cases – including data backup and archiving, Disaster Recovery, file and object services, copy data management and analytics.
“AWS is delighted to establish a strategic collaboration with Cohesity as we share common goals – helping customers lower costs, become more agile, innovate faster and do more with data,” said Doug Yeum, Head of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, Amazon Web Services. “Working with Cohesity, we are charting a new course in how data is managed in an as a service model, leveraging disruptive, modern data management capabilities from Cohesity and industry-leading cloud services from AWS.”
As part of the strategic collaboration, Cohesity and the AWS Partner Network (APN) are investing in resources to design the DMaaS solution on AWS and to engage in joint go-to-market activities. Additionally, Amazon has made an equity investment in Cohesity.
“This collaboration between Cohesity and AWS shows a continued commitment to bringing data management solutions to enterprise and mid-size customers that provide unmatched simplicity, flexibility and reduced total cost of ownership,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and Founder, Cohesity. “Cohesity and AWS are also focused on helping customers derive value from data. Through AWS, customers can access a wealth of AWS services, including Amazon Macie, to help customers meet compliance needs and Amazon Redshift for analytics. We are thrilled to collaborate with AWS and look forward to ushering in a new era in data management for customers globally.”
“The DMaaS solution from Cohesity and AWS is a significant improvement over what’s available on the market today,” said Michael Graff, Senior Manager, IT Architecture, Dolby Laboratories. “I’ve been using Cohesity and AWS for years and both have brought amazing value to our organisation. Now, I’m even more excited about a comprehensive DMaaS solution that can provide even greater simplicity, choice, and flexibility from best-of-breed cloud and data management providers.”
