Cohesity now pre-installed available on Cisco HyperFlex and UCS systems

Cohesity has expanded its existing collaboration with Cisco. With immediate effect, the storage specialist participates in the SolutionPlus programme of the American network and cloud specialist.

In concrete terms, the now extended collaboration means that the cohesion software, including its DataPlatform, is now available pre-installed on Cisco HyperFlex and UCS hardware applications, both for existing and new users.

Benefits for end users

In this way, end users of these hyper-converged systems will be able to consolidate their primary and secondary data silos on HyperFlex and UCS systems. In addition, end-users will have the opportunity to purchase all solutions and applications in one go and be assured that this combined solution meets all the requirements of both suppliers for their products.

In addition, Cohesity introduces a new Cisco Validated Design (CVD) that provides end users with a single architecture to protect primary HyperFlex cluster data and do more with the secondary data present on the UCS systems. This can now be done with direct snapshot integration, among other things.

This single primary and secondary storage architecture, according to the secondary storage specialist, enables end users to save more on costs, reduce complexity and better reduce security risks. Ultimately, this should lead to more compliance and the end users can get more value out of their data.

Stronger mutual cooperation

This is not the first time that Cisco and Cohesity have tightened their ties. As we described earlier, the American network, data and cloud specialist recently invested heavily in the scale-out for secondary storage. Both suppliers also state that they will coordinate their roadmaps even further in the near future.

Resellers and partners

Finally, the new cooperation between the two companies is also aimed at resellers and other partners and therefore also extends the existing reseller agreement. To this end, Cisco naturally includes the joint products in its own product catalogue. In addition, resellers will now have a streamlined delivery process and, of course, access to new market environments, especially those for secondary storage solutions and applications.
