Cohesity is now ready for VMware Cloud on AWS

Cohesity today announced that Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity DataPlatform have attained “VMware Partner Ready for VMware Cloud on AWS” validation.

By validating Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity DataPlatform with VMware Cloud on AWS and attaining the VMware Partner Ready for VMware Cloud on AWS logo, Cohesity has tested and verified interoperability and can fully manage customer support requests for these offerings with VMware Cloud on AWS.

“We are pleased that Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity DataPlatform are validated for VMware Cloud on AWS. This signifies to customers that these solutions can be deployed with the knowledge and reassurance that the partner fully supports the specified versions and configurations on VMware Cloud on AWS,” said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware.

Cohesity makes it a snap to back up and recover virtual machines (VMs) running on VMware Cloud on AWS. After completing an initial backup, users can archive VM backups to Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier for long-term retention and recognise reduced cloud storage costs due to inline data deduplication. From the cloud, organisations can also easily recover data, whether it be a single file or VM or their entire VM environment.

Cohesity DataProtect provides end-to-end backup, recovery, and storage capabilities for virtual and physical workloads, databases, and applications with one simple web-scale solution. Cohesity DataPlatform empowers organisations to solve the critical challenge of mass data fragmentation, in which data is so proliferated across different locations, silos, clouds, and management systems that organisations are unable to fully utilise its value. Cohesity DataPlatform consolidates these data and infrastructure silos and gives organisations a way to manage their data through a single administrative dashboard.

By using Cohesity within their VMware Cloud on AWS environment, businesses can realise the benefits of the complete DataPlatform and DataProtect solutions in VMware Cloud for AWS rather than being limited to reduced functionality provided through backup proxies or gateways. Customers get the same comprehensive web-scale platform in the cloud as they do on-premises to achieve faster backup and recovery performance.

“Enterprises are looking to take advantage of the agility of VMware Cloud on AWS while also simplifying backup and making their data more productive,” said Vineet Abraham, senior vice president of engineering, Cohesity. “As more data is being generated in the cloud and other locations, customers no longer need to compromise on backup and recovery SLAs and instead can focus on consolidating their data silos onto a single easy-to-manage platform that was designed to support businesses’ evolving infrastructure needs.”

The Partner Ready for VMware Cloud on AWS program enables partners to validate their application/infrastructure component on VMware Cloud on AWS. Partners extend their on-premises solution capabilities to the cloud and ensure consistent user experience and functionality on VMware Cloud on AWS. This increases customers’ confidence in vendor solutions.
