The vendor added new capabilities to its data backup platform that prevent, detect, and respond to ransomware attacks.
The investment comes on the heels of Veeam competitor Rubrik closing a $261 million funding round at a $3.3 billion valuation. And it’s yet another signal that the data management sector is hot.
Rubrik is considered a leader in the cloud data management space, which is also referred to by some as hyperconverged secondary storage. It competes against firms like Cohesity, Commvault, and Dell EMC.
When Air Bud’s legacy storage system gave out, leaving the film company with no way to backup or restore files, “it was panic,” said Technical Director Tyson Clark.
Also today HPE rolled out four new edge products as well as storage advances with machine learning built in.
The Major League Baseball team wanted to update its antiquated backup platform and utilize cloud storage to further reduce costs.
The software-defined platform runs on top of Cohesity, Cisco, HPE, or Dell EMC hyperconverged secondary storage appliances.
The cloud service gives companies visibility and mobility across all of their secondary data and applications from a single dashboard. It also uses machine learning and analytics to power a bunch of new infrastructure management features.
The amusement park’s IT team selected Cohesity's hyperconverged appliance and software-defined storage after a run-off against Rubrik.
Dell EMC’s new device provides converged data protection, and comes bundled with software for backup, deduplication, replication and recovery, along with disaster recovery and long-term retention to the cloud.
Cohesity’s technology helped Schneider Electric eliminate its reliance on legacy backup and shift to a hybrid cloud approach.
This brings the secondary storage and data management company’s total funding to $410 million, which Cohesity says laps all other Series D enterprise software investments in the U.S. over the last 18 months.
The software integrates with public cloud APIs so that backups scale automatically as cloud workloads are added or deleted.
While the overall storage market experiences slow growth, software-defined storage is driving significant shifts in revenue. We selected six companies that are pushing the market forward.
Cohesity and Rubrik lead the sector.
