Hey Google, I hear you are backing up enterprise cloud environments with Cohesity

Cohesity is the first backup solution to provide native integration with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This is good for the partners and will give competitors pause.

The new partnership with GCP and Cohesity enables organizations to back up cloud workloads. While neither vendor dominates market share in their respective industry, both have impressive YoY growth.

This SaaS solution allows IT shops to skip the headache of deploying backup software, designing necessary infrastructure, or using scripts to manage backup. Instead, it allows organizations to protect their environment by selecting the workloads with the click of a mouse.

Key benefits of the new offerings include:

  1. Protection for public cloud workloads
    • Snapshot integration with GCP for native backup of Google Compute virtual machines
  2. Easy management
    • Consolidated SaaS dashboard for management of backup
    • Role-based permissions for self-service
    • Native integration with GCP IAM (Identity and Access Management)
    • One-click deployments and reusable policies
  3. Pay-per-use cost
    • Billing is based on consumption and is integrated and available through the GCP marketplace

Our Take

No matter what public cloud you choose, understand that moving to cloud does not eliminate the responsibility for backup and disaster recovery. Poorly negotiated SaaS contracts can result in unexpected increase to YoY costs, difficult implementations, and high switching costs. Know the benefits and draw backs of SaaS before falling for its easy-to-use value proposition.
