Cohesity has partnered with AWS to market a modern Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) offering. The DMaaS solution is designed to provide enterprise and mid-size customers with a simple way to back up, secure, govern, and analyze their data, all managed directly by Cohesity and hosted on AWS.
As part of the tie-up, Cohesity and AWS Partner Network (APN) are investing in resources to design the DMaaS solution on AWS and to engage in joint go-to-market activities.
Amazon has also made an equity investment in Cohesity.
The foundation for this new DMaaS solution is Cohesity Helios, a SaaS-based data platform that currently serves more than 1,500 customers.
Cohesity Helios claims to empower customers to see, manage, and act on their data globally across environments which they manage. Moving forward, customers will also have the option to use Helios to do the same for data that resides in a Cohesity-managed environment.
The first offer that will be made available to organizations as part of this DMaaS solution is Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a service.
This Backup as a Service (BaaS) offering is currently in early access preview with general availability planned by the end of the year.
The company plans to launch other DMaaS offers addressing additional data management needs in the coming quarters.
