Cohesity adopts Red Hat Enterprise Linux for its Data Cloud

Red Hat and AI-powered data security and management provider Cohesity this week announced that Cohesity has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as the foundational operating system of its Cohesity Data Cloud platform.

The Cohesity Data Cloud enables hybrid and multi-cloud environments by providing a single interface to unify and enhance the security posture of data across sources, services, vendors and technologies.

As the platform grew in usage and capabilities, the company said in a release, it began to see challenges with its underlying Linux operating system, CentOS Linux 7 (which reaches end-of-life in 2024), with maintenance and patching burdens being placed on its product engineers.

It also noted that, given Cohesity’s emphasis on providing enhanced data security, the underlying security capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux complement its own approach.

Cohesity has already begun its Linux migration journey by embedding Red Hat Enterprise Linux into the Cohesity Data Cloud platform, which, it said, should provide a smooth migration experience for customers.
