Cohesity DataPlatform is a distributed, highly scalable storage system designed to function as a consolidation point for a variety of secondary data storage workloads and as an integrated backup and data management solution. It has a clustered, scale-out architecture with each node providing storage capacity, processing power and networking connectivity to the system.
While a key use case for Cohesity is data protection (and therefore included in our Scale-Out Data Protection coverage), Cohesity’s market focus and product architecture from the beginning has been as a data management platform. This Product Analysis is focused on the scale-out data protection capabilities of Cohesity DataPlatform with DataProtect solution and introduces some of the broader data management capabilities that Cohesity provides.
Cohesity allows selected third-party applications to run on the DataPlatform. Focus for the applications is on data management and analysis. Cohesity acquired Imanis to add facilities for distributed database protection and recovery.
There are an increasing number of vendors marketing Integrated Data Protection appliances besides Cohesity. Competitive solutions include Commvault HyperScale, Igneous Hybrid Storage Cloud, Rubrik Cloud Data Management, and StorageCraft OneXafe, among others. These products are included in the Evaluator Group Research Scale-Out Data Protection comparison matrix and associated Product Briefs, Analyses and Evaluation Guide.
