Cohesity and Dicker Data: Redefining data management to solve mass data fragmentation for the New Zealand IT channel.

Data is an enterprise’s lifeblood and the most valuable digital resource, so preserving and protecting this resource is critical.

Digital transformation has also increased the amount of data that is being collected from different locations clouds and management systems. The management of this data – often trapped in silos -- has now become more and more complex, costly and risky for IT management.

As this landscape continues to evolve, Dicker Data has joined the Cohesity Partner Program and is pleased to now offer Cohesity’s modern data management capabilities, designed to support New Zealand IT partners in solving critical business problems and leveraging new market opportunities.

Lisa Tierney, General Manager Enterprise from Dicker Data said, “We are pleased to welcome another world-leading brand to our portfolio. As A/NZ’s largest locally owned distributor and with direct vendor relationships with Cohesity alliance partners HPE and Microsoft, Dicker Data is well placed to help partners redefine data management”

Ushering a new Era in Data Management

Earlier this year Cohesity received recognition from Gartner for the third time in a row, in the Gartner Voice of the Customer Report for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions assessment, and received distinctions in five categories of the review. And, last year Cohesity debuted in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions as a Visionary, highlighting its disruptive approach to the market, underpinned by a solid delivery. Founded just seven years ago, and having recently closed an impressive $250 million Series E funding round, Cohesity continues to extend its footprint in the market, attracting customers who are looking to deploy a modern, software-defined approach to backup and data management.

Cohesity enables customers to radically simplify data management, solving critical challenges that are facing many enterprises today. Delivering comprehensive protection on a scale-out design delivers flexibility to easily address evolving business requirements. Reducing downtime with the ability to recover data within minutes and providing public cloud integration to enable workload agility for long-term-retention, disaster recovery, dev/test, and cloud-native backups.

As New Zealand’s leading value-added technology distributor, Dicker Data is a true champion of the local channel, empowering vendors and partners to extract maximum value across the entire technology supply chain. Dicker Data will collaborate and connect Cohesity to its partner’s evolving needs, defining value in the market to enable profitable outcomes.

From training and enablement initiatives, through to technical presales and deal closure assistance, Dicker Data works with partners to develop future proof strategies to maximise sales opportunities.

As leaders in their respective fields, both Cohesity and Dicker Data are changing the game for partners and end-users. Both companies are uniquely and strategically positioned to best help customers deploy data management solutions to match their requirements.

Data management made easy

Multi-vendor ecosystems -- with assorted applications and disparate information that is spread across on-premises infrastructure and cloud locations -- and the combination of increasing data growth often makes data protection a large and costly challenge for the IT Channel.

Cohesity’s extensive data protection and data management solutions provide an easy-to-use consolidated platform to support numerous storage environments and data recovery for mission critical applications and workloads.

Cohesity transforms data management, by eliminating mass data fragmentation and the complexity created by legacy data silos. With simplicity at its core, Cohesity’s unique architecture has dramatically increased the operational efficiency that enterprises can expect from their data management infrastructure.

One platform, endless possibilities

In today’s business environment, enterprises are facing unprecedented challenges due to rapidly changing macroeconomic forces. Enterprises need to be more efficient in how they manage their existing IT resources and how they deploy new IT resources.

“As businesses struggle with rapidly growing volumes of unstructured data, the need to optimise data management, including backup and storage costs, becomes more critical. That’s even more the case today as IT leaders look to reduce costs during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kathryn Ramanathan, channel manager, ANZ, Cohesity. “By making the most efficient use of infrastructure, organisations can lower costs in a variety of areas including: shrinking data centre footprints, lowering power consumption, reducing support costs, and cutting the frequency with which additional infrastructure needs to be purchased.”

Ramanathan continues: “As an official Cohesity distributor, Dicker Data, has demonstrated knowledge of Cohesity solutions and products, and we are confident in Dicker Data’s ability to recommend the best Cohesity data management solutions to enable end users to overcome backup and data fragmentation challenges in their business.”
