XO Communications Simplifies Secondary Storage and Increases ROI with Cohesity
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 -- Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that the Verizon subsidiary XO Communications, one of the nation’s largest IP and Ethernet network providers, uses Cohesity as the foundation of its scalable, hyperconverged secondary storage system. XO Communications has lowered its data center TCO by 60 percent due to Cohesity’s high capacity and small footprint — 100 TB of raw storage per 2U appliance — and ease of management, which requires fewer administrators.
“Cohesity is designed to optimize capacity and performance,” said Eirik Toft, Systems Administration Spec V, XO Communications. “With Cohesity we can meet our customer requirements without complicating our secondary storage environment. Besides ease of use and simple integration, Cohesity is dedicated to its customers’ success.
Cohesity makes your data work for you by consolidating secondary storage silos onto a hyperconverged, web-scale data platform that spans both private and public clouds. Enterprise customers begin by radically streamlining their backup and data protection, then converge file and object services, test/dev instances, and analytic functions to provide a global data store. Cohesity counts many Global 1000 companies and federal agencies among its rapidly growing customer base and was named to Forbes’ “Next Billion-Dollar Startups 2017,” LinkedIn’s “Startups: The 50 Industry Disruptors You Need to Know Now,” and CRN’s “2017 Emerging Vendors in Storage” lists.
