Cohesity is disrupting the $60B secondary data and apps market by giving enterprises new ways to store, manage, protect and extract value from large volumes of untapped and highly fragmented data. Customers around the world are leaving legacy providers and are quickly deploying our easy-to-use software both on-premises and in the cloud, which is why we’re seeing a 300% increase in revenues and were just recognized as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. Data is the new oil, but only if companies can unlock its potential, and that’s where Cohesity comes to play. Cohesity was founded by Mohit Aron, who pioneered hyperconvergence as CTO and co-founder of Nutanix, and prior to that helped build the Google File System.
