CEO and Founder
Cohesity was founded in June 2013 by CEO Mohit Aron, who is regarded as the pioneer of hyper-convergence, the first architecture to converge compute and storage to simplify virtualization. Aron founded the infrastructure company Nutanix to bring hyper-convergence to market and served as its CTO before leaving to build Cohesity. Aron worked as a Staff Engineer at Google from 2003 to 2007, where he helped design the company’s innovative Google File System. He also served as Architect at AsterData, a leading big data analytics company that was later acquired by Teradata.
Mohit holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Rice University.
