Rackspace Technology has announced a strategic partnership with Cohesity, to deliver multi-cloud managed backup and recovery solutions for Rackspace customers globally.
Under the partnership, Rackspace will offer customers Rackspace Data Protection, a software-defined Cohesity-powered backup and recovery service, that delivers cyber resilient managed backup and recovery across VMware-based clouds.
Cohesity DataProtect is the foundation of the Rackspace Data Protection solution, which includes backup and recovery for VMware workloads, and options such as advisory services and ransomware anomaly detection and remediation services.
“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.”
The managed service helps assure Rackspace Technology customers that their data and workloads running on VMware infrastructure are more resilient.
“This partnership 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 cyber attack,” said John Theberge, vice president for global alliances, service providers and GSIs at Cohesity.
