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.
DataProtect is Cohesity’s stand-alone backup and recovery solution that uses Cohesity DataPlatform as the underlying technology to create a unified storage vault for secondary data stored on-premises and in the public cloud. DataProtect is available as a Cohesity-managed service delivered through channel partners, and as an AWS-hosted backup-as-a-service software subscription through Cohesity’s Data Management-as-a-Service (DMaaS) portfolio.
Cohesity also offers a complementary SiteContinuity disaster recovery (DR) offering that automates failover and failback orchestration for mission-critical workloads. SiteContinuity can be self-managed by the customer for site-to-site DR, it can be procured from Cohesity as a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution using AWS infrastructure, or it can be subscribed to as a DRaaS solution hosted by a Cohesity service provider partner.
Cohesity’s various services can be centrally managed through Helios, Cohesity’s overarching software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based management platform that offers visibility, policy-based management, and analytics for all data managed by Cohesity.
While a key use case for Cohesity is data protection (and therefore it is included in Evaluator Group’s Data Protection Systems, Data Protection Software, and its Backup-as-a-Service coverage), Cohesity’s market focus and product architecture from the beginning has been as a data management platform (as a result, it is included in our Multi-Cloud Data Management coverage). This Product Analysis addresses the scale-out data protection capabilities of Cohesity DataPlatform with DataProtect solution as well as some of the broader data management capabilities that Cohesity provides.
