Feature Friday Episode 37 – Data Management as a Service with Cohesity and VMware Cloud Director

As you know each week we will release a new video covering a different topic in more depth. The content will be mostly technical but will also cover services that are feasible with the features. Keep an eye out on this blog site to see when a new video is released.

In this video I’m joined by Chris Colotti, Field CTO at Cohesity to discuss the VMware Cloud Director integration for Cohesity Data Management as a Service offerings, primarily backup and restore. Cohesity is a multi-tenant solution that maps to existing VCD customer orgs to be able to offer them different tiers of service for their data management service.

The plugin is free and very comprehensive, we really little need to a customer to access Cohesity natively, however if the customer wants more detailed logs and dashboards Cohesity is just a click away without being challenged for authentication.

One of the really neat capabilities is that all backup images are fully hydrated; incremental backups are merged with a clone of the last full backup, therefore providing an instant restore capabilities to your tenants.

Keeping a broad portfolio of infrastructure offerings is important to remain relevant to your customers, and with ever growing infrastructure and automation of infrastructure, it is essential customers are in charge of their own destiny for data management. Watch this Feature Friday here to find out more about how you can use Cohesity, fully integrated in VMware Cloud Director and Cloud Director service to deliver self service data management backup and restore to your customers.

Of course, if you have feedback or there is a feature you would like to see discussed, please let us know. Email vcpp_gtm@vmware.com and we will find the best resource to give us the overview.

Now, it’s Friday 😊  and the weekend is almost here! Maybe it’s around lunch time wherever you are in the world, so go and grab something to eat 🥪  or a cup of coffee ☕️ and settle in to a 45 minute overview of Cohesity Backup and Restore in Cloud Director and the offerings it could unlock for you!
