Cohesity DataPlatform gains processing capability

By

When you're dealing with massive amounts of data, it makes sense to process it where it is stored. A forthcoming update from Cohesity will make it possible to process secondary data in situ.

Moving data around takes time, consumes bandwidth, and increases the amount of storage required.

So if you need to process secondary data, perhaps to perform analytics, there's a lot to be said for running the analytics software on the platform that stores the secondary data.

The Cohesity Pegasus 6.3 release, which should be available to customers within a month, includes the ability to run containerised applications.

Benefits include the ability to extract insights from all of an organisation's backup and unstructured data without having to make additional copies, increased operational efficiencies, and a more holistic view of data that can help improve security and compliance.

To make life easy for customers, compatible applications will be available from the Cohesity MarketPlace, which will work in much the same way as the various app stores for mobile devices, explained Cohesity ANZ managing director Theo Hourmouzis.

This means there is "very little work for the customer", he said.

The initial line-up includes applications from Cohesity and third-party developers.

Cohesity is offering Insight (simplifies locating and acting on data), Spotlight (monitors modifications to file data to detect anomalies such as ransomware attacks), and EasyScript (simplifies the creation and use of scripts).

The third-party applications available from the launch of the MarketPlace are Splunk Enterprise (analytics for backup and unstructured data sets), Imanis Data (added protection of NoSQL workloads), and the SentinelOne and Clam anti-virus products.

"Imanis Data is able to extend the value of Cohesity by leveraging its platform to help customers protect Hadoop and NoSQL databases, which are increasingly common among the broad range of data sources most companies use today," said Peter Smails, vice-president, Alliances, Imanis Data.

"The Imanis Data cluster running on Cohesity provides a seamless solution for enterprises to backup Hadoop and NoSQL databases and keep the data stored on Cohesity clusters."

Little work is needed to prepare an existing application for the App MarketPlace, Hourmouzis added.

Cohesity has released an SDK and other resources to help developers adapt their products to run on the Cohesity Platform, and for organisations to create custom applications.

At this time Cohesity is mot revealing exactly which containerisation software is being used, but iTWire understands that it is well-known and that many developers will already be familiar with it.

Allowing customers to process data in place "has been part of our vision from day one," said Hourmouzis. "It makes total sense."
