Cohesity – Redefining data management by simplifying data centers and cloud


They say that companies that do not understand the importance of data management are less likely to survive in the modern economy. Your data is your most valuable asset. To create a truly data-focused organization, it is essential to understand the ins and outs of data management. Data is the foundation of a business’s information, knowledge, and ultimately the wisdom for correct decisions and actions. If this data is relevant, complete, accurate, meaningful, and actionable, it will help in the growth of the organization. If not, it can prove to be a useless and even harmful asset to a scaling enterprise. Therefore, data management initiatives should be taken to increase the quality of the data and information. Organizations have to manage the data cycle well because the data is created, stored, maintained, used and even destroyed. When data management occurs effectively, the data life cycle begins even before the data is acquired.

Cohesity is one such firm that is redefining data management from the ground up to solve critical challenges faced in businesses today. Most enterprise data like backups, archives, file shares, object stores, and data used for test and analytics sit in fragmented infrastructure silos that make it hard to protect, expensive to manage, and difficult to analyze. Cohesity consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform, spanning on-premises, cloud, and the edge, and uniquely empowers organizations to run apps on that platform making it easier than ever to back up and extract insights from data.
