Federal organizations are increasingly looking to new infrastructure solutions to overcome the challenge of mass data fragmentation, and Cohesity recently announced that its public sector customer base grew by nearly 200 percent in the second half of the last fiscal year. Cohesity provides an easy on-ramp for federal customers to consolidate siloed secondary data workloads onto one web-scale platform that is optimized for modern cloud and hybrid architectures. This helps public sector customers lower the total cost of ownership and comply with federal mandates like DCOI, FITARA, and Cloud Smart.

Johnson has more than 30 years of experience and a proven track record of success in executive positions at a number of large, well-known companies. Most recently, Johnson served as senior vice president, head of public sector, at Riverbed, where he led the growth of the company’s public sector division. Prior to Riverbed, Johnson served as group vice president at Oracle and oversaw infrastructure sales and business development for U.S. government agencies. Johnson also spent a decade at NetApp in sales leadership positions. There, he was instrumental in helping the company grow its public sector business from $77 million to approximately $1 billion in revenue. Sales and sales management positions at Sun Microsystems and Data Business Systems round out Johnson’s career.

“Federal organizations are focused on optimizing their infrastructure for cloud adoption, presenting a monumental opportunity for Cohesity,” said Johnson. “I look forward to working alongside the Cohesity team to drive federal adoption of the company’s easy-to-manage, web-scale platform for all secondary workloads.”

“Davis has a proven record of supporting federal CIOs and executives with complex missions and he has a unique understanding of how emerging technologies can help drive IT modernization and digital transformation,” said Steve Grewal, CTO, federal and eastern U.S., Cohesity. “We are very excited to have him join the team and I look forward to working with him to enable more public sector organizations to harness the power of consolidated secondary data and applications.”
