Cohesity pulls in $250 million for its hyperconverged secondary storage

Cohesity, a start-up based in San Jose, California, raised $250 million in an oversubscribed Series D funding round led by the SoftBank Vision Fund with strong participation from strategic investors Cisco Investments, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), and Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital, along with early investor Sequoia Capital and others.

Cohesity specializes in hyperconverged secondary storage. Its hyperconverged appliance consolidates all secondary data and associated management functions on one unified solution, including backups, files, objects, test/dev copies, and analytics.

“My vision has always been to provide enterprises with cloud-like simplicity for their many fragmented applications and data – backup, test and development, analytics, and more,” said Cohesity CEO and Founder Mohit Aron. “Cohesity has built significant momentum and market share during the last 12 months and we are just getting started. We succeed because our customers are some of the world’s brightest and most fanatical IT organizations and are an extension of our development efforts.”

Cohesity said its annual revenues surged 600% from 2016 to 2017. In the last two quarters, over 200 new enterprise customers selected Cohesity, including Air Bud Entertainment, AutoNation, BC Oil and Gas Commission, Bungie, Harris Teeter, Hyatt, Kelly Services, LendingClub, Piedmont Healthcare, Schneider Electric, the San Francisco Giants, TCF Bank, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Air Force, and WestLotto.

The latest $250 million round brings total funding in Cohesity to $410 million.

“We backed Mohit at his previous firm, Nutanix, and are proud to support him again at Cohesity. The company has a smart and timely vision for radically simplifying secondary data for large customers, which is part of a broader move by enterprises toward hybrid-cloud infrastructure. We believe Cohesity is armed with the right team and product to attack this large and growing market,” said Neeraj Agrawal, general partner, Battery Ventures.

Lynn Lucas: Secondary Workloads and Data Center Transformation

Commentary from Lynn Lucas, CMO, Cohesity

"We've all seen the transformation of the data center for primary workloads and mission-critical applications, largely founded on the new principles around hyper-converged infrastructure. Nutanix and others are leaders in this area."

"At Cohesity, our CEO, Mohit Aron, was CTO and co-founder of Nutanix, colloquially known as the father of hyper-convergence. He observed that those same principles can be applied to the rest of the data center -- what he termed secondary workloads, that is, backup and recovery, test and development, analytics, files, and objects. "

"For Cohesity, it is all about continuing that transformation of the data center and connecting it seamlessly to the public cloud."

"We are a software-defined solution. We run on hyper-converged appliances, certified both by ourselves, x86, or Cisco UCS or HPE Proliant. So you have your choice. We run and consolidate backup and recovery, first and foremost, giving you an end-to-end solution for this most critical of workloads --and then, with our software platform, allowing you to extend it to the public cloud for test and dev , and also to consolidate on the platform files and objects, other analytics applications, and to use us for replication or even disaster recovery scenarios."
