A recent press release reports, “Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced new capabilities that empower organizations to leverage the public cloud for faster application testing and development while ensuring seamless backup and recovery. Cohesity DataPlatform now includes CloudSpin, providing organizations with instant access to their backup data in the cloud for application testing and development (test/dev), eliminating manual processes that typically take weeks to complete. For organizations that are developing cloud-based applications, Cohesity DataPlatform Cloud Edition, with DataProtect, is the first modern, web-scale backup solution to integrate with public cloud snapshot APIs to deliver automated data protection. Together, these new capabilities help organizations transform their secondary data – such as backup copies – from an idle and expensive insurance policy into a valuable asset for rapid new application development.”
The release continues, “A growing number of enterprises are moving application testing and development onto public cloud infrastructure, taking advantage of its agility and elasticity to speed time to market. With Cohesity CloudSpin, users can instantly convert backup data stored on Cohesity DataPlatform into a new virtual machine (VM) for test/dev in the cloud. This replaces legacy approaches to test/dev that require developers to submit requests for data copies and infrastructure capacity, which can take weeks or even months to fulfill. Now, Cohesity delivers instant access to data copies both on premises and on demand in the public cloud – all through a unified platform – so that enterprises can dramatically accelerate their application development processes.”
