Through this acquisition, Cohesity customers will enjoy the broadest
support to easily back up and instantly recover Hadoop and NoSQL
workloads and supporting databases, including MongoDB. This adds to
Cohesity’s already comprehensive capabilities for backup and instant
recovery of traditional databases such as Oracle and SQL, along with
virtual, cloud, and physical workloads.

Additionally, Imanis Data customers will have the option to access
Cohesity’s modern data management capabilities that make backup data
productive and offer radical simplicity for archiving, disaster
recovery, ransomware prevention, testing and development, and more – all
within a single solution. By combining capabilities from both companies,
Cohesity will be able to offer the industry’s first and only modern
software-defined data management solution for NoSQL and Hadoop data
residing on-premises or in the public cloud.

Today, numerous Fortune 500 companies rely on solutions from Imanis Data
to protect big data workloads. The Imanis Data customer base extends
across a wide array of verticals including financial services,
insurance, retail, and transportation. Unlike legacy data management
products, solutions from Imanis Data are architected for petabyte scale,
are data-aware, and are powered by machine learning to reduce cost,
minimize risk, and enable insight across large data sets. This approach
directly complements Cohesity’s focus on helping companies utilize
disruptive innovation to unlock the power of their data.

“Cohesity’s acquisition of Imanis Data advances our mission to transform
the way that enterprises back up, store, manage, and derive insights
from their secondary data, no matter its type or where it resides,” said
Mohit Aron, founder and CEO, Cohesity. “NoSQL databases will likely
experience double-digit
over the next five years, and as enterprises continue to
embrace these modern workloads, Cohesity can help ensure the data is
protected by a simple web-scale solution that can also empower
organizations to do much more with their data.”

Solving Mass Data Fragmentation Challenges

Enterprises are increasingly taking advantage of new distributed
databases, but doing so has created additional data silos that require
separate backup solutions, further exacerbating the problem of mass
data fragmentation
. Cohesity addresses this problem by empowering
customers to consolidate both traditional and modern workloads on a
single, scale-out platform that spans on-premises and cloud
infrastructure. By combining Imanis Data’s unique, machine-learning
powered approach to data management with the Cohesity
, customers can eliminate the need for separate data and
infrastructure silos for their NoSQL and Hadoop workloads and manage all
their data from a single pane of glass.

“We have been very impressed with Imanis Data’s technology, people, and
support, and this acquisition further increases their value to
customers,” said Eric Gutmann, manager of infrastructure at MDL
autoMation. “Imanis Data’s leadership in Hadoop and NoSQL data
management combined with Cohesity’s leadership in modern backup and
recovery will create an unbeatable solution.”

“Adding the capabilities of Imanis Data to the Cohesity platform should
be a very positive move for Cohesity as IT organizations increasingly
embrace big data workloads and need more efficient ways to back up,
manage, and gather insights from all their secondary data,” said Phil
Goodwin, research director, IDC. “The combined solution helps breaks
down traditional infrastructure silos for NoSQL and Hadoop workloads and
is intended to make it easier and less expensive for companies to deploy
and protect big data technologies.”

Imanis Data is already available as an application in the Cohesity
, making it simple for customers to protect all of their
Hadoop and NoSQL distributed databases, including MongoDB, Cassandra,
Cloudera, CouchbaseDB, and Hbase, on one platform. As part of the
acquisition, the Imanis Data team is joining Cohesity to support and
develop new capabilities for Cohesity under the leadership of Imanis’
Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Nitin Donde.

“We are excited to join the Cohesity team as we believe our technology
is not only complementary in nature but combined, provides a
best-in-class offering for customers who want to do more with their
data,” said Donde. “Imanis Data’s technology fits perfectly within
Cohesity’s vision to eliminate mass data fragmentation by bringing all
secondary workloads together on a single platform.”
