Solution Overview

Cohesity DataPlatform™ consolidates non-latency sensitive data and applications including backups, files, objects, test/dev 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 non-latency sensitive 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 hyper-converged platforms as well as in the public cloud.

This lab was designed to provide a foundational overview and to demonstrate data protection services for Kubernetes container services. To expand on this lab, consider completing the Essentials, Advanced or Cloud labs to further test and demonstrate Cohesity's full capabilities.
