Cohesity Snapshot Management for Pure Storage
The Cohesity Snapshot Management capabilities for Pure Storage adds exceptional storage infrastructure management value for organizations that are considering or using both Pure Storage as primary storage and Cohesity for secondary storage. The combination helps organizations maximize the value of their primary storage investments from a capacity and performance utilization characteristics. With the Cohesity and Pure Storage integration, organizations can benefit from the simplified and efficient enterprise management approach Cohesity provides for Pure volume snapshots management. Organizations can choose to retain snapshots on the Pure Storage arrays partially, or they can completely be offloaded onto Cohesity clusters. Regardless of the options taken, the snapshots can be deleted from the Pure array but they will remain easily accessible and can be recovered quickly when they are needed.
By offloading the snapshots onto the Cohesity clusters, organizations can stop consuming storage capacity for data protection purposes, and as a result, the available storage capacity and performance capabilities are left to be utilized by business critical applications. This approach also mitigates the risks of complete data loss in the event of primary storage failure or an event where the storage array become compromised while live (production), and protection (snapshots) reside on the same hardware.
