Cohesity: Converged Secondary Storage Solution
CEO: Mohit Aron
Storage startup Cohesity, Santa Clara, Calif., came out of stealth mode in June with $70 million in venture funding. In October, it launched its first solution, the Cohesity Data Platform, an infinitely scalable converged platform that provides a full range of integrated data protection services, including storage of backup and archival data, and cloud connectivity. Data can be easily cloned for test and development, the company said. It also includes an integrated data analytics software application, or allows integration with customers' choice of application.
The basic building block of the Cohesity Data Platform is a 2U hardware appliance with three or four server nodes and up to 96 TB of raw disk space and 6 TB of flash storage. Upgrades and installation are all done without disrupting operations, according to the company.
