Cohesity announced that Cohesity DataPlatform Cloud Edition is now available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), providing a new, cutting-edge enterprise-grade solution for backup and recovery of applications that use Google Compute Engine. As a result, Cohesity now offers data backup and protection for a wide array of public clouds, empowering enterprise customers with an incredibly efficient and easy-to-manage solution for secondary data workloads across multi-cloud architectures.
Cohesity DataPlatform Cloud Edition on the Google Cloud Platform delivers web-scale platform attributes such as unlimited scalability and resiliency for backing up applications running on Google Cloud Platform. The integrated solution provides enterprise-grade backup of applications that use Google Compute Engine (GCE), the infrastructure-as-a-service component of GCP, addressing a growing market demand.
“Enterprises want to take advantage of the benefits of multi-cloud architecture and this requires a data protection and backup solution that works easily across public clouds as well as on-premises and private cloud infrastructures,” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer, Cohesity. “Our integrated solution with Google Cloud Platform empowers customers to combine the scale and efficiency of Google Cloud Platform with radically efficient backup and data protection capabilities that can be managed from a single, easy-to-use interface.”
Cohesity’s native integration with Google Cloud makes it simple to backup and protect cloud virtual machines (VMs) compared with fragmented legacy alternatives that require a separate solution for backup of cloud applications. Cohesity customers also benefit from an API-based platform architecture that enables easier and faster recovery, due to indexing and search capabilities. The integrated solution also brings key architectural benefits associated with Cohesity DataPlatform, such as global deduplication and compression, to Google Cloud Platform.
