Cohesity DataPlatform consolidates data and applications including backups, files, objects, dev/test, and analytics on a single, software-defined platform. Inspired by web-scale architecture, DataPlatform is a scale-out solution based on a unique distributed file system, SpanFS. DataPlatform modernizes and simplifies data and application management by providing one platform for multiple workloads. Although most organizations begin their journeys to overcoming mass data fragmentation by simplifying data protection, DataPlatform's flexible architecture allows easy expansion to additional use cases, further increasing operational simplicity and improved TCO. Because DataPlatform is a software solution, it works equally efficiently on-premises on qualified Cisco, HPE, Dell, or Cohesity hyperconverged platforms as well as in the public cloud.
