Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition
Bring the Power of Web-Scale Simplicity to the Public Cloud for Secondary Data

Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition

Cohesity Products



Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition™ is a software-defined platform that consolidates secondary data and applications on a single virtual appliance to overcome mass data fragmentation. The solution brings the benefits of core data center protection and productivity workflows, including backup, recovery, archiving, test/dev, and analytics to remote and branch office locations. Simple, fast, flexible, and cost-efficient, Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition runs on the most popular hypervisors-VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, RHEL (KVM)-requires no additional hardware, and integrates natively with leading public clouds, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Optimized Capacity

Core Features:

Web-Scale Simplicity

Core Power for the Edge:
Branch offices have the same needs as core data centers, yet limited IT resources. Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition simplifies IT secondary data management modernization for remote and branch offices through the same simple user interface, APIs, and policy-driven automation available elsewhere in the enterprise.
Lightning Fast Recovery

Fast Deployment:
Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition is easy to deploy as virtual appliances within existing vSphere and Hyper-V environments. Without additional hardware, the platform consolidates secondary workloads and eliminates unnecessary data copies for test/dev and analytics. It further reduces data footprints with enterprise-class data reduction and protection functions.

Flexibility that Extends into the Cloud

Integration with Any Cloud:
Built for cloud, Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition natively communicates with private and leading public clouds-Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform-to keep edge data safe while making it productive. The solution easily moves data from the edge to the data center or directly to the public cloud and back to meet business requirements.
