A new HPE and Cohesity software resell agreement (which we announced at HPE Discover Madrid in November last year) makes the Cohesity secondary data and apps solution available directly from HPE and our channel partners. This creates a streamlined customer experience for the purchasing and deployment of a jointly validated solution from a single trusted partner.

On general availability from March 4, 2019, this best-of-breed solution combines the web-scale simplicity and efficiency of Cohesity software with the power and density of industry-leading HPE Apollo and HPE ProLiant servers, along with HPE Pointnext advisory, professional, operational and financing services.

Why is this important?

Secondary data and applications, including backups, disaster recovery, files, objects, test/dev, archives, and analytics, are massively fragmented across a complex patchwork of specialized point products and infrastructure silos in the data center and the cloud. Not knowing what data exists where across all silos makes it impossible to protect. Additionally, not having an easy way to manage all data makes it impossible to harness for greater value.

As secondary data often gets copied more than 10x* across distinct silos with no central visibility and control, it is inefficient and costly to manage, and creates a crippling source of compliance risk. You need to simply and efficiently protect, store and manage this exponentially growing secondary data across clouds, data centers or remote/branch offices, and put it to work for your business.
