Cohesity’s Backup as a Service offering now available in Europe

On the 9th June 2021, Cohesity launched their Backup as a Service solution in Europe.

What is Cohesity BaaS?

The service is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure in Europe providing enterprise and mid-size customers another radically simple way to back up data, eliminate silos, and drive down capital expenditure costs, while Cohesity takes care of managing the underlying infrastructure.

The Service is launching on the AWS Europe (Frankfurt) Region, with London expected to follow in summer, 2021, and Paris by fall/Autumn, 2021.

Cohesity DataProtect

The Cohesity BaaS offering is branded as Cohesity DataProtect.

Cohesity DataProtect is delivered as a Service and includes support for an array of workloads including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Virtual Instances and Compute Infrastructure, and AWS Relational Database Service (RDS), Microsoft 365 SaaS applications, and data sources such as VMware, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and SQL Server.

Cohesity DataProtect is used to back up data on-premises, or in cloud environments managed directly through one user interface on the Cohesity Helios multicloud platform.

DataProtect delivered as a Service is the first offering from Cohesity’s comprehensive Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) portfolio. DMaaS is a portfolio of ‘as a service’ offerings designed to provide users with a radically simple way to back up, secure, govern, and analyze their data, all managed directly by Cohesity and hosted on AWS—Cohesity’s preferred cloud provider for DMaaS.

Cohesity SiteContinuity

In addition to announcing the availability of Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service in Europe today, Cohesity announced the imminent arrival of its second SaaS offering in its DMaaS portfolio, Cohesity SiteContinuity, which will enable automated disaster recovery of mission-critical applications and data to the cloud.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is designed to help enterprises reduce infrastructure costs substantially by utilising on-demand cloud resources from AWS instead of requiring a costly secondary data centre.

Cohesity DMaaS

Cohesity’s portfolio of DMaaS offerings allows more choice in how you can protect and manage your data. Users can choose from a DMaaS model, on-premises Cohesity cluster, or a combination of both in a hybrid model – all on a single platform and managed with a single UI.

Users can subscribe to DMaaS offerings through authorised Cohesity channel partners and distributors and via the AWS Marketplace. DMaaS not only gives partners the opportunity to grow their recurring revenue business, but it also allows them to expand their existing managed service offerings without having to build out infrastructure themselves. Or, they can use this as an entry point if they are thinking about starting a managed service practice.

With Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service, users can also:

  • Reduce complexity with BaaS that is built for the hybrid cloud, freeing up cycles to focus on other critical tasks with a single backup service on-premise and cloud data sources and single UI to manage BaaS and customer-managed environments.
  • Reduce backup setup to minutes by automatically discovering workloads once a secure connection is established and applying either preset or custom policies to begin protection.
  • Ensure efficient use of available bandwidth, accelerating backups to the cloud and data recovery from the cloud by only transmitting data blocks that have been changed.
  • Improve their data security posture by keeping a snapshot in an alternate “air-gapped” location with flexible encryption key management and the ability to separate and isolate data for legal and compliance purposes.
