According to a recent press release, “Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced the release of Cohesity DataPlatform Virtual Edition (VE) and Cohesity C2100 Hyperconverged Node products for remote and branch offices. Together with Cohesity DataProtect, the new DataPlatform VE product delivers an integrated software-only backup solution that deploys on virtual machines ideal for remote or branch office locations. Now, data can be consolidated and replicated to a central data center for disaster recovery and long-term retention with Cohesity’s intelligent, web-scale storage system, saving companies time and money. With the introduction of Cohesity DataPlatform VE, Cohesity provides the first integrated data protection solution that deploys from the edge to the data center to the cloud with a common feature-set and management interface.”
