Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) Explained

Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) Explained

Data Management as a Service, or simply DmaaS, is a portfolio of ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) offerings specifically designed to provide enterprise and mid-size customers with a radically simple way to back up, secure, govern and analyse their data.

Unlike traditional approaches to data management, cloud-based DMaaS entrusts to the vendor the responsibility of organising, maintaining and updating the necessary infrastructure, software and hardware to keep all the data management-related services operational.

But not all DMaaS offerings are created equal. Cohesity offers a modern approach that empowers customers to further simplify their data management. Cohesity DMaaS includes an entire spectrum of data management capabilities, including backup and recovery, disaster recovery, archiving, file and object services, dev/test provisioning, data governance, security and analytics.

Integral to Cohesity’s DMaaS offering are DataProtect, delivered as a service, and Cohesity FortKnox, both of which are now being offered by Cohesity in Singapore and the rest of Southeast Asia.

DataProtect delivered as a service is a backup service that provides unified backup and recovery for on-premises, cloud, and SaaS workloads.

Cohesity FortKnox, on the other hand, is a data isolation and recovery solution that minimises the adverse impact of cyber attacks. It is specifically designed to help customers improve cyber resiliency by providing an isolated and immutable copy of data in a Cohesity-managed cloud vault, powering a modern “3-2-1” backup strategy that is ideal for the cloud era.

Just as important, these offerings can be easily managed through one user interface via the Cohesity Helios multicloud platform. This is a next-gen approach to data management, and it helps customers consolidate separate services and enhance data security by reducing the attack surface.

The key advantages of using Cohesity’s DMaaS include:

  • Comprehensive data protecting and backup that secures all your data assets whereever they reside, enabling fast and efficient business continuity and disaster recovery.
  • Reduced costs by eliminating CapEx and instead shifting expenses to OpEx, which is significantly more manageable and scalable.
  • Minimised risks that gives you a centralised view of all your data from a single cloud-based platform, which greatly improves data discovery and compliance.
  • More agility and less complexity, as cloud-based data management is by far the simplest and best way to protect, connect and unlock value in data across your hybrid IT environments.
  • Improved data quality by eliminating silos that fragment data, making high-quality data readily available. This allows you to easily obtain valuable insights from your data for faster, more informed decision making.   

Put simply, Cohesity DMaaS is a simplified way of managing and protecting all enterprise data regardless of type and location. It gives organisations the opportunity to grow their recurring revenue business and, at the same time, allows them to expand their existing managed service offerings without the need to build infrastructure themselves.
