Cohesity: Converged Secondary Storage Solution
CEO: Mohit Aron
Storage startup Cohesity, Santa Clara, Calif., in June came out of stealth mode with $70 million in venture funding, and unveiled the availability of its first solution.
That solution, the Cohesity Data Platform, is 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. 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.
