Cohesity is a privately held enterprise storage company that ushers in a new era in data management that solves a critical challenge facing businesses today: mass data fragmentation.

Cohesity delivers the industry’s first hyperconverged secondary storage for backup, test/dev, file services, and analytic datasets.

Cohesity was founded in June 2013 by Mohit Aron and is headquartered in San Jose, California. The company launched publicly in June 2015, introducing a platform designed to consolidate and manage secondary data.

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 consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform, spanning on-premises, cloud, and the edge, and uniquely empowers organizations to run apps on that platform — making it easier than ever to back up and extract insights from data.


Cohesity is backed by leading investment firms including GV, Qualcomm Ventures, Sequoia Capital, DFJ Growth, Softbank Vision Fund, Accel, Cisco Investments and others. The company raised $250M in a Series E round on Apr 09, 2020. This brings Cohesity's total funding to $660M to date. The latest round gives Cohesity at $2.5B post-money valuation. The was previously valued at $1.1B as of Jun 11, 2018.
