Cohesity Achieves Amazon Web Services Storage Competency Status for Integrated Storage SolutionsAugust 16, 2018
Cohesity, a leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Competency status for its cloud storage solutions. This recognition certifies that Cohesity has not only met strict technical proficiency requirements identified by AWS, but is also delivering integrated storage solutions with remarkable customer success.
Cohesity DataPlatform supports AWS, empowering enterprises to take advantage of the agility, scalability, and cost effectiveness of AWS while benefitting from a hyperconverged solution that consolidates secondary apps and data – including backup, long-term archival, test/dev, and disaster recovery. This allows organizations to eliminate a vast array of data silos that are highly inefficient and costly to manage, and instead bring everything together in a single interface that is simple to use, highly efficient, and can unlock new opportunities to extract valuable insights from untapped data.
"Enterprises require an easier way to take control of their secondary apps and data and realize the benefits of both public cloud and on-premises infrastructure," said Vivek Agarwal, head of corporate and business development, Cohesity. "We are proud to be recognized by AWS for providing solutions that help customers seamlessly extend their data center into the cloud to effectively and efficiently address a wide range of use cases."
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology Partners in the AWS Partner Network (APN) that have demonstrated deep domain experience in specialized solution areas. AWS conducted a rigorous technical review of Cohesity’s integrated cloud solutions to help ensure the offerings can be effectively deployed and implemented on AWS.
"Our biggest immediate benefits with Cohesity were significant reduction in operational costs and eliminating failures of our legacy backup solution," said Steven McCaa, director of end user services and infrastructure, LendingClub. "Besides a rock-solid data protection solution, Cohesity has not only enabled LendingClub to have a single platform for a lifetime of backups, but also provided capabilities for disaster recovery and seamless support for AWS for archiving."
