203 - Interview with Sanjay Poonen, CEO, Cohesity

Season 5, episode 203
26 min / Published

Cohesity shook the storage industry with the M&A announcement with Veritas Technologies a few weeks ago, nobody has really anticipated that move. We met Sanjay Poonen, CEO, and his executive team, during the recent IT Press Tour and it appeared natural and logic for me to record this interview and we did a few days after our visit. With Sanjay we spoke about the genesis of the deal, the Cohesity business situation and business climate, the rationale behind the deal, the financial aspect of it, what it means for NetBackup users, also for DataProtect, the recent announcement about GAIA, the Cohesity RAG AI approach, and of course the future with some projections of the coming months. Super interview, I really hope you will love it as well. Thank you Sanjay.
