Cohesity has created a new application that provides enterprises with a template to move workloads between on premise environments and the public cloud.

The new app called Cohesity Runbook helps companies to automate the process of moving data and workloads via a drag-and-drop interface. This greatly simplifies a complex task, writes Silicon Angle.

Previously, a lot of work was needed to move workloads between different IT environments. For example, manual processing had to be applied, new scripts had to be written and incompatible virtual machine formats had to be dealt with. If mistakes are made, the workload cannot be started properly.

Cohesity Runbook

Cohesity Runbook has to solve this problem. The app is intended to complement the company’s core product, the DataProtect platform, which is used to manage and back up data stored in the cloud or on premise.

According to the company, the new app is especially useful for users who want to use the cloud for backup and disaster recovery. It can also be used to move data or workloads to the cloud for DevOps and application testing.

The app allows IT administrators to create their own blueprints, making it easier for organizations to use the cloud for application migration and failover. Currently, the app only supports moving workloads between on premise environments and the public cloud of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The Runbook app is now available for download from Cohesity’s Marketplace. The company also plans to add support for other public clouds later this year.

Takeover

With the launch of Runbook, Cohesity is taking a new step in a busy year. The company took over another organisation for the first time in May: the startup Imanis Data. Imanis Data provides cloud backup services for NoSQL databases.

Earlier this year, a partnership with Google was also announced, which offers backup and recovery services for applications on the Google Cloud.
