Scale-Out File Services On Cohesity DataPlatform

Multi-protocol access

NFSv3, SMB 2.x and SMB 3.0 multi-protocol access to data allows support of applications across all major enterprise operating systems including Microsoft Windows and Linux.

Simple, cost-efficient storage

Eliminate dedicated NAS storage and consolidate your files on Cohesity Dataplatform. Ensure always-on availability, pay-as-you-grow by scaling performance and capacity linearly, and eliminate expensive forklift upgrades. Increase storage efficiency with variable-length, global deduplication that spans an entire cluster, and compression. Support for both in-line and post-process deduplication.

Data protection

Take an unlimited number of snapshots of your file shares with Cohesity snapshot technology. Automate the creation and retention of your file share snapshots with converged data protection software. Replicate data off-site for disaster recovery.

Real-time monitoring

Monitor capacity utilization and performance in real-time at the cluster and file share level.

Search and analytics

Automated global indexing powers Google-like search, enabling instant wildcard searches for any file ingested into the system. Run custom MapReduce jobs on the data stored on the platform.

Multicloud integration

Integrate natively with AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud for archival, tiering and replication. Eliminate tape by using the public cloud for long-term data archival. Expand the capacity of your Cohesity cluster by automatically tiering individual chunks of data to the cloud. Replicate data to a Cohesity Cloud Edition cluster running in the public cloud. CloudReplicate minimizes potential data loss by replicating data as soon as a backup is completed. Use the data in the cloud for disaster recovery, application migrations, test/dev, or analytics.

Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM)

Enable policy-based retention of data for compliance and other use cases.
