|Simplify Data Management with Cohesity DataPlatform and Helios|
|Posted: Thu Jun 18, 2020 02:47:26 PM|
Most IT modernization efforts are either directly or indirectly initiated to address the operational complexity caused by a legacy technology infrastructure. In recent months, the changing business conditions have forced enterprises to reprioritize their IT efforts: simplify IT infrastructure, while also reducing the operating cost, and ensuring business continuity—especially amid increased ransomware attacks.
While simplifying IT operations helps free up your time, it also results in reducing operating costs and security risks, especially important for these uncertain times. With simplicity at its core, Cohesity’s unique architecture, combined with Cohesity Helios has dramatically increased the operational efficiency that enterprises can expect from their data management infrastructure.
Architected for Simplicity
Not everything in life needs to be complex or complicated. Cohesity SpanFS, a third-generation distributed file system, was engineered from the ground up to eliminate mass data fragmentation, and the resulting operational inefficiencies and complexities. Here are a few noteworthy platform capabilities that are helping enterprises simplify their data management and access, while also reducing cost and security exposure:
A Single User Interface to Access All Data and Apps, Located Anywhere
Businesses are global and so are their data and apps, spread across locations and environments. With a single SaaS-based user interface and built-in machine learning intelligence, Helios enables you to effortlessly manage and access all your data. It provides global operational insights and actionable recommendations to make informed decisions.
The single dashboard (figure 1) aggregates operational data including, the health of your global Cohesity infrastructure, the status of protected objects, SLA status, performance (throughput and IOPS), and more. Other benefits include:

Global Enterprise Data Management in the Palm of Your Hand
While the global pandemic continues to limit our mobility, the Cohesity Helios mobile app for iOS and Android-based smartphones is empowering IT Operators to monitor the health and performance of their Cohesity infrastructure. The mobile app gives easy access to monitor protection status at a glance, manage support cases, and get alerts about anomalies, including potential ransomware attacks on their production environment, all in the palm of their hand.
Easy Data Management Across Dark Sites
Many organizations, especially the ones operating in sensitive verticals, like financial services and federal, due to their security policies, are not always able to take advantage of a SaaS solution. Customers with particularly higher security needs can now take advantage of Cohesity Helios on-premises app to manage their clusters without connecting to the Helios SaaS service. The new application is included in the Helios premium license and offers multi-cluster management and other benefits associated with a unified global dashboard. In the on-premises version, capabilities such as predictive analytics are not supported.
