Economic Insight: Minimizing Storage TCO in a Data Protection Environment
In this free Economic Insight report, we provide a long-term total cost of ownership analysis of Cohesity's DataPlatform for data protection storage and infrastructure. This report examines Cohesity’s DataPlatform in the context of two use cases. First, the use of Cohesity as an efficient distributed storage platform is reviewed to replace traditional target storage devices and media for backup and recovery operations.  The second use case looks at Cohesity as an integrated, end-to-end data protection solution for backup and recovery, in addition to providing scalable, cost-effective storage capacity. 

Webinar: CI, HCI and Composable - What they Are, Where they Fit and Where they Don't
Converged and Hyperconverged technologies have been out for a number of years. And now Composable is here, and being touted as the next big thing in the Integrated Infrastructure space.  All of these technologies are evolving, including Hyperconverged being sold as SDS.  How do you know what fits or is right for your environment?  Should you be considering these as a replacement for your current systems or for new apps? 

Evaluator Group covers all these technologies and can help you understand what they are and what they can do and if they’re right for you. Join Sr. Analyst Eric Slack for this informative webinar "CI, HCI and Composable - What they Are, Where they Fit and Where they Don’t”
