Cohesity announced that its software-defined data management platform now supports AWS GovCloud (US), providing government agencies with a unique and modern approach to back up, manage, and gain insights from their data across hybrid cloud environments.
Through this integration, Cohesity is providing a comprehensive solution that offers AWS customers broad data management capabilities for secured government clouds that include backup and recovery, long-term retention, analytics, and protection of Amazon EC2 compute infrastructure, all on a single web-scale platform.
In addition, Cohesity has become a member of the AWS Public Sector Partner Program by demonstrating a high level of technical proficiency and customer success so that the two companies can better deliver tightly integrated solutions and a seamless experience on behalf of government clients.
Cohesity helps government organizations address mass data fragmentation
Cohesity DataPlatform provides exceptional backup, enhanced security, and ransomware detection. Government agencies can now extend the software-defined platform they use for on-premises workloads to manage and protect AWS GovCloud, enabling a broad new range of hybrid and cloud-native use cases for data.
Many public sector organizations – particularly federal agencies – use AWS GovCloud to take advantage of secure cloud infrastructure while maintaining compliance with numerous mandates around sensitive datasets and workloads.
Cohesity empowers these customers to also solve the critical challenge of mass data fragmentation, where massive volumes of data are spread across fragmented infrastructure silos and clouds that can be hard to back up, manage, and analyze.
Cohesity consolidates these silos on a single platform spanning data center, cloud, and edge environments, ushering in a new era in data management that unlocks opportunities to make data more productive.
“Bringing Cohesity’s unique data management capabilities to AWS GovCloud empowers government agencies to harness the benefits of hybrid cloud infrastructure through an efficient and easy-to-use platform that eliminates mass data fragmentation,” said Steve Grewal, CTO, federal and eastern U.S., Cohesity.
“We’re excited to expand the capabilities we provide our public sector customers so they can benefit from modern and efficient data infrastructure that helps them do more with their data.”
New partnership with AWS drives greater collaboration
By becoming a member of the AWS Public Sector Partner Program, Cohesity is now providing a streamlined path for more government customers to take advantage of its radically simple data management capabilities. As an AWS Technology Partner, Cohesity has proven its value and met stringent collaboration requirements to better serve joint customers.
This includes thorough testing of joint solutions and making them generally available on AWS, as well as deeper collaborations between AWS and Cohesity public sector teams with the goal to deliver the best customer experience.
Cohesity and Amazon’s public sector partnership builds on the two companies’ long-term collaboration, which has introduced many innovative solutions and created a rapidly growing list of joint customers.
“Cohesity is providing innovative solutions that give our customers options to do more in the cloud while supporting strict data management requirements,” said Brendan Walsh, senior vice president, partner relations, 1901 Group. “Mass data fragmentation is a challenge for many federal agencies, so this partnership streamlines and enables data management and protection.”
Cohesity DataPlatform on AWS GovCloud is available through a “Bring Your Own License” model, and can be purchased as a software subscription.
