MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 13, 2020 – Pure Storage and Cohesity announced a strategic partnership that brings to market Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity. This offering is a jointly-engineered solution designed to meet the most demanding business continuity requirements and enable new opportunities for data-driven organizations.
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.
Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity delivers all-flash data backup and recovery capabilities that enterprises require for restoring data rapidly in the face of a disaster or a ransomware attack. It enables flash-to-flash-to-cloud data protection and allows rapid, independent scaling of processing, throughput, and storage capacity for the most efficient use of all resources.
The solution also empowers 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, allowing multiple applications to leverage data stores on the high-performance, unified fast file and object FlashBlade platform.
“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, 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.”
