Cohesity launches DataProtect delivered as a Service

Cohesity announced the general availability of Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service. This SaaS-based offering, the first of many to come as part of Cohesity’s comprehensive Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) solution, gives customers an incredibly easy way to make sure their on-premises and cloud-based data is backed up and protected. To take advantage of this new offering, customers simply sign up, protect and connect. It’s that easy.

Cohesity DataProtect has already been deployed by thousands of customers globally. Now, the company is extending that proven functionality to customers that want to realize the benefits of the technology through a SaaS model where the data infrastructure is managed by Cohesity and hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cohesity’s preferred cloud provider for DMaaS. With Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service customers can:

Reduce complexity with Backup as a Service that is built for the hybrid cloud, freeing up cycles to focus on other critical tasks.
Reduce backup setup to minutes by automatically discovering workloads once a secure connection is established and applying either preset or custom policies to begin protection.
Support multiple workloads including VMware workloads and NAS (file data) today, Microsoft 365 and enterprise databases in the coming months, and many more in the quarters ahead – all supported through a single converged experience.
Ensure efficient use of available bandwidth, accelerating backups to the cloud and data recovery from the cloud by only transmitting data blocks that have been changed.

In the future, customers will have even more ways to derive value from data by taking advantage of AWS cloud-based services. These services can help ensure compliance, enhance security, and derive additional insights and business intelligence through ML and analytics.

“From backup to disaster recovery to reusing data for dev/test and file services, our comprehensive Data Management as a Service solution removes the complexities of managing infrastructure,” said Matt Waxman, Vice President of Product Management, Cohesity. “With Cohesity Helios, our SaaS-based multicloud data platform, customers can act on data infrastructure they manage or that Cohesity manages through one pane of glass. Data management has never been simpler.”
