Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, recently announced it’s expanding the availability of its Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) offerings to customers in the Middle East.
Cohesity added that DMaaS is a portfolio of ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) offerings designed to offer enterprise and mid-size customers with a radically simple way to back up, secure, govern, and analyze their data. Cohesity takes care of managing the underlying infrastructure while the service is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) — in this case, in the AWS Middle East (Bahrain) Region.
Cohesity further explained that the clients in the Middle East can now access the first DMaaS offering, Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service. This backup as a service (BaaS) offering gives customers another easy way to back up their data on-premises or in cloud environments.
Cohesity also claimed that with its Cohesity DataProtect on-premises solution, the BaaS offering delivers support for an array of cloud workloads including Microsoft 365 SaaS applications, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and compute infrastructure, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and on-premises data sources such as VMs, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and databases.
Cohesity further adds that they are planning to unveil other DMaaS offerings that will follow in the future. As with Cohesity’s on-premises solutions, DMaaS offerings can be easily managed through one user interface via the Cohesity Helios multi-cloud platform.
Cohesity claimed that its next-gen approach to data management aids the clients in consolidating many of the separate services, products, and administrative consoles that organizations often struggle to manage today. This consolidation can further enhance data security by helping companies reduce their attack surface. Customers can also utilize DMaaS to shift expenses from CapEx to OpEx.
Additionally, the firm stated that A Vanson Bourne study, The State of Data Management Report, commissioned by Cohesity, founded that 89% of senior IT leaders/organizations are likely to consider deploying a DMaaS solution, citing the ability to derive more value from data and cost-effectiveness among the top reasons.
Brad Schwarz, vice president, and general manager, Data Management as a Service, Cohesity stated “With the threat of ransomware at unprecedented levels, being able to rapidly backup and recover is now a growing concern for the region’s IT leaders. Customers can now leverage our backup as a service offering as another way to enhance data protection and keep bad actors at bay. We are pleased to offer customers in the Middle East even greater choice and flexibility. With Cohesity, they can manage their data directly, utilize Cohesity’s DMaaS offerings, work with a Cohesity-powered partner, or a combination of all three.”
Gregg Petersen, regional director, MEA, Cohesity stated “Not only does the expansion of our DMaaS-offerings to the Middle East empower customers to further simplify data management, but also gives our regional partners the opportunity to add their unique value and resell the solution through a variety of distribution channels.”
