According to a recent press release, “Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced the launch of Cohesity Orion 5.0, the industry’s first storage platform that combines end-to-end data protection and big data storage on distributed, infinitely scalable architecture. The latest version of Cohesity’s groundbreaking secondary storage platform delivers radical efficiency by serving double duty as a backup solution and searchable archive for large amounts of structured and unstructured data. By combining historically siloed solutions on a single platform that works across cloud and on-premises infrastructure, Cohesity Orion enables companies to simplify administration, reduce overall data copies, accelerate search and retrieval, and dramatically lower storage costs.”
The release goes on, “Companies have traditionally relied on one set of point solutions for data backup and recovery and another set to archive vast quantities of structured and unstructured data, ranging from customer records to large-scale media content. But with the increasing size and diversity of data that organizations need to store, these separate infrastructures have led to massive inefficiencies. Copies of the same data accumulate on each point solution, and administrators must work across multiple user interfaces to handle separate data use cases. Cohesity Orion 5.0 tackles these inefficiencies head on by providing an industry-first platform for data protection and archiving that seamlessly spans on-premises and cloud infrastructure and can be managed through a simple, single-pane-of-glass user interface. The fully indexed and searchable platform gives IT administrators easier access and greater insight into their data and eliminates redundant copies. Data is now instantly accessible to any application and user via standard protocols including NFS, CIFS/SMB, and S3. This drives extremely efficient data and infrastructure re-use across data protection, archive, content repositories, test/dev, and analytic workloads.”
