Integration Maximises Data Insights with Flexibility for On-Premises and Cloud Analytics While Meeting Data Sovereignty and Compliance Requirements
Cohesity, a leader in AI-powered data security and management, today announced the launch of Cohesity SmartFiles on the Snowflake Data Cloud. This new integration enables businesses to derive analytical insights from their on-premises and cloud data while maintaining data sovereignty and meeting compliance requirements.
“Snowflake recognises the critical importance of providing customers with advanced data security and management while mining their data for strategic insights,” said Kit Beall, Chief Revenue Officer, Cohesity. “As a leader in AI-powered enterprise data security and management, we seek partners equally dedicated to the secure storage and management of customer data. That is why we are delighted to partner with Snowflake to continue delivering innovative and secure solutions that our customers can confidently rely on.”
By leveraging the Snowflake Data Cloud, Cohesity is joining Snowflake in mobilising the world’s data to help organisations reap the benefits of their analytics capabilities without having to move their data to the cloud for analysis. With Cohesity SmartFiles, joint customers can store their data locally in SmartFiles and leverage Snowflake’s analytics capabilities with the flexibility to keep data either on-premises or in the cloud. This integration provides customers with broader access and choice while allowing them to adhere to strict internal policies.
Cohesity SmartFiles augments customers’ cloud-native Snowflake Data Cloud to include on-premises repositories and extends secure access to sensitive local data records. Cohesity SmartFiles also provides a secure platform for consolidating application data that is designed to improve storage efficiency and reduce overall cost of ownership for local Snowflake repositories.
“Cohesity’s commitment to helping Snowflake mobilise the world’s data can be seen through the launch of the SmartFiles integration,” said Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances, Snowflake. “We look forward to partnering with Cohesity to allow access to SmartFiles in the cloud or on-premises through Snowflake’s single, integrated platform.”
This collaboration with Snowflake and Cohesity enables joint customers to gain more value from their data while optimising cost, scale, and efficiency for their Snowflake data.
