How Did We Get Here?

The current environment has only accelerated the trends we’ve been observing in the market. Data continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, and the rise in the value and volume of data has coincided with the increased adoption of all-flash in enterprises worldwide. 

According to a recent ESG Research Survey, 71% of IT respondents agreed that data and effective storage strategies play a strategic role in delivering a competitive advantage, and 88% of organizations depend on flash storage. The demand for flash is now expanding to the backup and disaster-recovery space. The need to ensure flash-enabled fast, reliable, and simple backup and recovery of data—at scale—is greater than ever before. Increased occurrences of ransomware attacks, including the recent are a constant reminder that this is becoming an even more critical problem. 

Technology leaders are looking for better answers to the challenges associated with:

  • The growing business-continuity and disaster-recovery (DR) demands of modern applications and data
  • The move toward cloud services
  • The heightened concerns over ransomware 
  • The need to address their infrastructure complexities

Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity delivers the accelerated backup and rapid recovery that enterprises need today. It not only ensures business continuity in the face of a disaster or a ransomware attack but also reduces data-center complexity and offers simplicity to meet growing petabyte-level recovery requirements.

The Response So Far

We’ve been humbled by our customers’ enthusiasm and analysts’ feedback for this solution. This gives us even greater confidence in our vision. In a recent Forbes article about the solution, Steve McDowell of Moor Insights and Strategy writes, “Pure and Cohesity are taking an approach that’s different from most of the competitive field, one that delivers much-needed capabilities while simplifying the experience for IT. Unifying data protection and fast file and object storage makes sense.”

When we think about the typical organizations that are excited about Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity, Scott Sinclair from ESG sums it up well in his blog post: “These organizations view themselves as competitive differentiators, central to business operations, and rightfully so. They see their job as empowering all facets of the business and understand that every second the business is down is lost revenue and lost opportunity.”
