Cohesity recognised as a Customers' Choice in 2021 Gartner Peer Insights 'Voice of the Customer': Distributed File Systems And Object Storage

By Cohesity

Company News: Cohesity today announced it has been named a Customers' Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights 'Voice of the Customer': Distributed File Systems and Object Storage report. With this recognition, Cohesity is the only vendor to be named as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for both Distributed File Systems and Object Storage, as well as the Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions announced in January 2021.

Gartner defines distributed file systems and object storage as "software and hardware solutions that are based on 'shared-nothing architecture' and that support object and/or scale-out file technology to address requirements for unstructured data growth." The Gartner Peer Insights ratings are based on direct customer feedback. In the most recent report, Cohesity SmartFiles was among those with the highest overall rating (4.8 of 5.0) with products that had at least 57 customer reviews as of 17 March 2021.

"We believe being recognised by Gartner as a Customers' Choice for both Distributed File Systems and Object Storage and Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions demonstrates the incredible value our Helios multicloud data platform offers in providing modern data management to enterprise organisations," said Cohesity chief marketing officer Lynn Lucas. "This recognition is another validation of our strategy to continue to invest in innovation that makes it radically simple for customers to manage their data and unlock limitless value from it."

In addition to being named a 2021 Customers' Choice for the Distributed File Systems and Object Storage market category, Cohesity was recognised as a 2021 Customers' Choice for two category distinctions, including North America and Midsize Enterprises.

SmartFiles, Cohesity's file and object offering, is the industry's first software-defined, data-centric file and object solution for the enterprise offering unparalleled manageability, scale, security, efficiency, and multi-tiered data management. It is a single solution for multiple application workloads that allows value to be unlocked from data through an integrated application ecosystem that runs directly on data in-place. SmartFiles leverages the Cohesity Helios multicloud data platform to deliver a patented distributed architecture with unlimited scale in a pay-as-you-grow model that never requires disruptive upgrades.

Here are some sample Cohesity customer reviews from Gartner Peer Insights for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage report:
