Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), delivering storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, has partnered with data management company Cohesity to bring to market Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity. This jointly-engineered solution is designed to meet the most demanding business continuity requirements and enable new opportunities for data-driven organizations.
Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity delivers all-flash data backup and recovery capabilities for enterprises. It allows them to store data rapidly in the face of a disaster or a ransomware attack. It enables flash-to-flash-to-cloud data protection, allowing for rapid, independent scaling of processing, throughput, and storage capacity for the most efficient use of all resources.
The solution would also empower organizations to future-proof data center investments and realize new levels of performance to meet growing petabyte-level recovery requirements. In addition, the solution enables backup data to be reused for analytics and DevOps. It allows multiple applications to leverage data stores on the high-performance, unified fast file and object FlashBlade platform.
Pure and Cohesity have formed this partnership based on strong customer demand for an integrated all-flash data protection solution that empowers customers to easily, quickly, and reliably back up and recover their data at scale. The companies have also formed this partnership at a time when more customers are embracing cloud services and are seeking ransomware protection.
“As today’s environment has made abundantly clear, business continuity is more than just surviving an event, it is about enabling your business to thrive in a crisis, no matter the circumstance,” said Charles Giancarlo, Chairman and CEO of Pure Storage. “We’re delighted to partner with Cohesity to deliver the first fully integrated solution that delivers rapid recovery, designed for the long-term success of any organization.”
By combining Cohesity DataProtect software with Pure’s unified fast file and object FlashBlade platform, the integrated solution would delivers]:
- Performance – Significantly faster backup and restore throughput than disk-based alternatives. Capable of recovering thousands of virtual machines and up to 1PB of data a day to meet large-scale disaster recovery needs.
- Integration – Single-point purchasing, deployment and support all delivered through Pure, eliminating the need for customers to go through two vendors. Pure Storage is now a Cohesity Technology Partner and the companies have committed to joint innovation.
- Scalability – Disaggregated compute and storage to enable independent scaling for backup / recovery processing, throughput, and storage capacity for the most efficient use of resources.
- Simplicity – Ease of management provided by cloud integration. It would enable flash-to-flash-to-cloud backup and recovery, low-cost public cloud storage for long-term retention, and non-disruptive upgrades.
