Cohesity has announced the acquisition of Imanis Data, an enterprise backup and data management provider for distributed databases.
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.
Imanis Data customers will also 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.
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, minimise 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 founder and CEO Mohit Aron said: “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.
“NoSQL databases will likely experience double-digit growth 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 organisations to do much more with their data.”
Complimentary in nature
Imanis Data is already available as an application in the Cohesity MarketPlace, 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.”
