Offer Underscores SmartFiles’ Superior Capacity Efficiency When Compared to Other Scale-Out NAS Products — At a Time When Organizations Need to Stretch IT Budgets

SAN JOSE, CA – June 24, 2020 — / — Cohesity today announced the Cohesity SmartFiles “Less-Is-More” guarantee. This offer provides assurance that SmartFiles — the industry’s first software-defined, data-centric, multiprotocol file and object solution for the enterprise — will utilize disk storage more efficiently than competitive offers such as scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) products.

Beginning on June 24, the offer* guarantees the best capacity efficiency in the industry. When deploying a given dataset on Cohesity, if customers find that a competing offer delivers better capacity efficiency for the exact same dataset, Cohesity will credit the difference towards the purchase of Cohesity software.

As businesses struggle with rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data (a recent IDC report? found 40 percent of respondents indicate that they expect their datasets to grow 30-49 percent over the next two years), the need to optimize data management and storage costs becomes more critical. That’s even more the case today as IT leaders look to reduce costs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Cohesity helped us eliminate our existing storage filer with an 8.7X data reduction and a 146X reduction in storage from 3.6 petabytes that we would have consumed to 25.5 terabytes stored,” said Josh Van Camp, network administration supervisor, Gleaner Life Insurance Company. “All for 30 to 40 percent less than other data management solutions.”

By making the most efficient use of storage hardware, organizations can lower costs in a variety of areas, including shrinking data center footprints, lowering power consumption, reducing support costs, and reducing the frequency of the need to purchase additional hardware.

“The SmartFiles ‘Less-Is-More’ guarantee ensures customers the most capacity-efficient scale-out file and object services solution in the industry,” said John Har, product management lead for Cohesity SmartFiles. “This is only possible through Cohesity’s innovative multi-layered data reduction approach that includes advanced data deduplication and compression, along with small-file optimization and the ability to deduplicate across entire data center volumes.”

This guarantee gives organizations unmatched flexibility thanks to superior data-reduction technology as compared to competitive scale-out NAS solutions.

“While some vendors promise their customers the ability to achieve specific capacity efficiency ratios, the SmartFiles “Less-Is-More” offer simply guarantees that Cohesity’s efficiency will be better than the rest,” Har added.

About Cohesity
Cohesity ushers in a new era in data management that solves a critical challenge facing businesses today: mass data fragmentation. The vast majority of enterprise data — backups, archives, file shares, object stores, and data used for dev/test and analytics — sits in fragmented infrastructure silos that make it hard to protect, expensive to manage, and difficult to analyze. Cohesity consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform — spanning from data centers, to the edge, to cloud — and uniquely empowers organizations to run apps on that platform, making it easier than ever to back up and derive insights from data. Cohesity is a 2019 CNBC Disruptor and was named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. Visit our website and blog, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn, and like us on Facebook.
