On 12 November 2020, Outcomex, Cisco, and Cohesity hosted a virtual masterclass for IT leaders across Australian industries. This session focused on rethinking data protection for the new enterprise, and discussed a recent case study exploring how an Australian public transport company, optimised, automated, and simplified their data environment.
The session began with a discussion around the challenge of mass data fragmentation, the danger of assuming all backup solutions are the same, and how to achieve a complete data management solution. Moderator Kathryn Ramanathan, Channel and Distribution Manager ANZ at Cohesity, interviewed expert panellists about their experiences with the modernisation and data protection deployment:
- Ben Blaschka, Southern Region Manager at Outcomex
- Derek Cowan, Head of Systems Engineering ANZ at Cohesity
- Simon Miceli, Regional Manager APJC – Data Centre and Cloud at Cisco
Masterclass attendees spanned Australian industries, including financial services, government, health, retail, energy, and transportation.

Customer experience story
An Australian public transport company transformed their backup platform, choosing Outcomex, Cohesity, and Cisco to simplify their data protection environment. The company faced complexity challenges, and needed to reduce total cost of ownership and improve their recovery posture.
The chosen solution delivers a robust data protection platform with a 3-2-1 backup strategy, transition from tape archival to cloud archival, and non-disruptive architecture. Unlike other industry offerings, this backup platform does not run any VMs, proxies or gateways. All functions like data protection, search, index, cloud archival are integrated.
The outcome is a compliant and simple to use backup and recovery capability, with an elastic, actionable search engine. A hyperconverged scale-out architecture makes scalability seamless and non-disruptive. They have also reduced total cost of ownership and achieved a <5minute Recovery Point Objective and near-instant Recovery Time Objective.
Outcomex partners with both Cisco and Cohesity to provide sophisticated data centre solutions. Outcomex is a Gold Certified Partner with Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization. By partnering with Cohesity, Outcomex is able to leverage the Cohesity data platform to unlock opportunities and ensure data protection for clients.
