Pure Storage and Cohesity in Partnership to Deliver Rapid Recovery at Scale

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and SAN JOSE, Calif. – August 12, 2020 – Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the storage-as-a-service in a multi-cloud world vendor, and Cohesity, the modern data management company that simplifies back up and data management, announced a strategic partnership that brings to market Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity, 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 customer demand for an integrated all-flash data protection solution that empowers customers to back up and recover 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 proactively putting practices and infrastructure in place to ensure continued progress no matter the circumstance,” said Charles Giancarlo, Chairman and CEO, Pure Storage. “We’re delighted to partner with Cohesity on  pioneering an all-flash data recovery solution that is completely integrated, flexible, high-performance, and designed for the long term success of any organization.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Pure in bringing to market a solution that integrates exceptional all-flash capabilities and cutting-edge data protection offerings that together unleash new opportunities for customers,” said Mohit Aron, Cohesity CEO and Founder. “Partnering with Pure, we are enabling enterprises to future-proof their investments with performance, simplicity and scale — backed by a strong shared belief in customer obsession and support.”

By combining Cohesity DataProtect software with Pure’s unified fast file and object FlashBlade platform, the integrated solution delivers:

  • Performance: up to 3x faster backup and restore throughput than disk-based alternatives, the ability to recover thousands of virtual machines and up to 1 PB of data a day to meet large 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 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 that enables flash-to-flash-to-cloud backup and recovery, low-cost public cloud storage for long-term retention, and non-disruptive upgrades.

Pure and Cohesity share common core values in the areas of innovation and customer obsession, as evidenced by their high (top 1%) Net Promoter Scores (NPS) among B2B companies.

Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity is being tested by joint customers today and will be generally available in the United States in Q4 CY2020 and in countries outside the United States in the coming quarters.
