Rackspace Technology has announced a partnership with Cohesity to deliver multicloud managed backup and recovery solutions for its global Rackspace customers.
The venture will see customers offered Rackspace Data Protection, a software-defined Cohesity-powered backup and recovery service designed to deliver cyber resilient managed backup and recovery across VMware-based clouds.
According to a statement, it is hoped that adding Cohesity’s data protection layer with integrated VMware Cloud Director (vCD) will help unify SecOps and ITOps to combat cyber threats.
“The partnership with Cohesity gives our customers access to a proven, robust data protection solution that eliminates legacy backup silos and provides comprehensive protection against the array of rising data threats they are facing, including ransomware,” said Josh Prewitt, chief product officer at Rackspace Technology.
“Customers can now manage and control data recovery from a single source, more efficiently store data, and eliminate potentially costly disruptions.”
“We are excited to engage in this partnership as it really addresses customers’ number one concern today, developing cyber resilience so they can quickly defend and if needed, rapidly recover data in the event of a cyberattack,” added John Theberge, vice president, global alliances, service providers and GSIs, Cohesity.
“Our next-gen data management capabilities, including DataProtect, give Rackspace Technology customers a simple and powerful solution that can enhance their security posture, advance protection, and improve their business resiliency.”
