Strategic Partnership Brings to Market Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity

Mountain View, Calif. – August 12, 2020 — Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, and Cohesity, the modern data management company that radically simplifies the way organisations back up, manage and derive value from data, today announced a strategic partnership that brings to market Pure FlashRecover™, Powered by Cohesity®. This offering is the industry’s first modern, jointly-engineered solution designed to meet the most demanding business continuity requirements and enable new opportunities for data-driven organisations.

Pure and Cohesity have formed this partnership based on strong customer demand for an integrated all-flash data protection solution that empowers customers to easily, quickly, and reliably back up and recover their data at scale. The companies have also formed this partnership at a time when more customers are embracing cloud services and are seeking ransomware protection. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Pure in bringing to market a solution that integrates exceptional all-flash capabilities and cutting-edge data protection offerings that together unleash new opportunities for customers. Partnering with Pure, we are enabling enterprises to future-proof their investments with performance, simplicity and scale -- backed by a strong shared belief in customer obsession and support.”

Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity delivers all-flash data backup and recovery capabilities that enterprises require for restoring data rapidly in the face of a disaster or a ransomware attack. It enables flash-to-flash-to-cloud data protection and allows rapid, independent scaling of processing, throughput, and storage capacity for the most efficient use of all resources. 

The solution also empowers organisations to future-proof data center investments and realize new levels of performance to meet growing petabyte-level recovery requirements. In addition, the solution enables backup data to be reused for analytics and DevOps, allowing multiple applications to leverage data stores on the high-performance, unified fast file and object FlashBlade™ platform.   

“As today’s environment has made abundantly clear, business continuity is more than just surviving an event, it is about enabling your business to thrive in a crisis, no matter the circumstance,” said Charles Giancarlo, Chairman and CEO, Pure Storage. “We’re delighted to partner with Cohesity to deliver the first fully integrated solution that delivers rapid recovery, designed for the long-term success of any organisation.”

By combining Cohesity DataProtect software with Pure’s unified fast file and object FlashBlade platform, the integrated solution delivers:

  • Performance: up to 3x faster backup and restore throughput than disk-based alternatives, capable of recovering thousands of virtual machines and up to 1PB of data a day to meet large-scale disaster recovery needs.
  • Integration: single-point purchasing, deployment and support all delivered through Pure, eliminating the need for customers to go through two vendors. Pure is now a Cohesity Technology Partner and the companies have committed to joint innovation.
  • Scalability: disaggregated compute and storage to enable independent scaling for backup / recovery processing, throughput, and storage capacity for the most efficient use of resources.
  • Simplicity: ease of management provided by cloud integration that enables flash-to-flash-to-cloud backup and recovery, low-cost public cloud storage for long-term retention, and non-disruptive upgrades.

Pure and Cohesity share common core values in the areas of innovation and customer obsession, as evidenced by their high (top 1%) Net Promoter Scores (NPS) among B2B companies.
