Hyper-converged storage vendor Cohesity has appointed Spectrum Consulting as the company’s first cloud service provider in New Zealand.

Spectrum will also become an authorised Cohesity reseller enabling it to offer technology to back up, recover, store, manage, and extract maximum insights from secondary data on-premises and in the cloud.

Secondary data accounts for approximately 80 per cent of an enterprise’s total data volume and includes data used for back-ups, archiving, testing and development, analytics, and other uses.

Traditionally, secondary data sits in silos that don’t integrate and require multiple products to manage, and can therefore increase infrastructure costs and complexities.

Cohesity’s web-scale platform consolidates these secondary data silos onto one software-defined platform that can increase IT efficiencies, reduce compliance challenges, and lead to better business outcomes.

“Spectrum will now be able to offer a suite of holistic services based on Cohesity technology to customers across a host of different industries,” said Anton Aalders, director of sales and technology at Spectrum.

“Cohesity is a great fit for us. It is very intuitive and provides a powerful way to perform back-up, analytics, testing and development, archiving, file shares, and object storage from one platform - while also helping customers extract powerful business insights from their data."

Spectrum is a nationwide managed services company which helps large enterprises reduce the cost and complexity of their IT infrastructure.

The addition of Cohesity to its portfolio will enable it to further build and deliver highly differentiated secondary data and application services for its enterprise customers.

Spectrum will also be able to offer a SaaS-based data management system, called Cohesity Helios, to help customers see, manage, and take action on their secondary data globally from a single dashboard featuring analytics and machine learning capabilities to generate insights from otherwise untapped data.

“The combination of Spectrum’s highly prized managed services and their impressive credibility among large enterprises will enable Cohesity to scale our business in New Zealand,” said Kathryn Ramanathan, channel and alliances manager for Australia and New Zealand, Cohesity. 

Cohesity's other resellers and cloud service providers across Australia and New Zealand include national players such as Data#3 and Nexion Networks.
