Cohesity Continues ANZ Market Momentum Signing WA’s NEXION Networks As A New Reseller and First Cloud Service Provider in Australia

Sydney, 18 December 2018 – Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that Perth-headquartered NEXION Networks, an enterprise solutions provider with a portfolio of solutions including cloud, security, data centre and telecommunications, has been selected as the company’s first Australian cloud service provider.  In addition, NEXION Networks has been appointed as an authorised reseller of Cohesity’s range of solutions for secondary data.

NEXION Networks is a leading Asia-Pacific enterprise technology solutions provider expert in the full suite of secure converged data networks, global SD-WAN, enterprise security, voice, data centre cloud and telecommunications solutions.

As a Cohesity cloud service provider, NEXION Networks will now be able to deliver a broad and differentiated range of multi-tenant or single-tenant secondary data services from one web-scale, hyperconverged platform and help organisations derive the most value from their secondary data. These service offerings include backup, archive, disaster recovery, filer, object storage, test/dev, and analytics with the aim of providing a consistent customer experience across an array of clouds including leading public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS)Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Earlier this year, NEXION Networks acquired its own data centre in Perth and has recently partnered with Pure Storage to offer its customers Pure Storage’s Evergreen Storage Service (ES2) model, a pay-per-use on-premise storage offering that gives enterprises the benefits of the public cloud coupled with the high degree of enterprise flexibility, availability, security, performance, and efficiency of Pure’s all-flash storage.

“NEXION Networks’ new data centre and partnership with Pure Storage are a perfect complement to Cohesity’s capacity to deliver the scale, availability, resilience, and efficiency that service providers require for advanced inline, variable length, cross tenant, and block level global deduplication, said Theo Hourmouzis, Cohesity.  “This is critical for achieving optimal levels of storage efficiency while enabling lower cost and fast data access.  We are  excited that NEXION Networks’ customers will now be able to continue to add compute horsepower and storage capacity without limit and without disrupting operations to handle growing business needs.”

In addition, with the SaaS based Cohesity Helios management solution, NEXION Networks will also gain unprecedented global access, visibility, and control of secondary apps and data across all Cohesity nodes. This supports better understanding of capacity, consumption, and data growth while offering customers unparalleled insight to untapped data to transform their businesses.

Paul Glass, CEO, NEXION Networks said, “Our typical customer today is a national enterprise that has a diverse storage load and needs to grow their capacity or re-engineer their storage.  We offer these companies the ability to keep their mainframe infrastructure or tap into the cloud.  At the same time, we’re also not forcing clients into long-term contracts through our model in offering month by month contracts.

“In this market environment where storage is no longer a large, multi-year complicated capex, Cohesity is a perfect fit and we’re very excited to work with the company in further building out our solutions offerings.  We will roll out Cohesity as a public, private, hybrid cloud service with the first array going into the Perth data centre before the end of the year while Sydney and Melbourne will follow in the first half of 2019.  Cohesity will further enable us to build Tier 2 storage cost effectively because it seamlessly integrates with Pure Storage as well as with AWS and Azure.”

Paul added, “NEXION Networks is an ideal partner for Cohesity.  They’re entrepreneurial, offer local engineering, own their own data centre,  and are experienced in working with customers in securing, transforming, protecting and storing data.  We look forward to enabling them to help customers eliminate data silos and deliver more value through the consumption-based pricing model, expert technical support and training.”

NEXION Networks joins Cohesity’s additional reseller partners in Western Australia, including Dienst Consulting and PSQ Group.
