Cohesity is bringing Backup-as-a-Service to the Canadian market to simplify data protection while keeping data in the country. BaaS offering, hosted in the Amazon Web Services Canada, empowers Canadian customers to focus on managing their data.
Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service allows customers to:
- Reduce complexity with Backup as a Service that is built for the hybrid cloud, freeing up cycles to focus on other critical tasks.
- Reduce backup setup to minutes by automatically discovering workloads once a secure connection is established and applying either preset or custom policies to begin protection.
- Support multiple workloads including VMware workloads and NAS (file data) today, Microsoft 365 and enterprise databases in the coming months, and many more in the quarters ahead — all supported through a single unified experience.
- Ensure efficient use of available bandwidth, accelerating backups to the cloud and data recovery from the cloud by only transmitting data blocks that have been changed.
Robert Yelenich, Canada vice president and GM, Cohesity, said,
“We are thrilled about this new offering because it gives Canadian customers another way to consume the exceptional capabilities of our DataProtect backup solution, only this time in a SaaS model that’s fully managed by Cohesity. We’ve also addressed data residency head-on with this announcement. Not only does the expansion of our SaaS offering to this new region help customers, but also our partners in Canada who can add their unique value and resell the solution through our distribution channels or via the AWS Marketplace.”
