Cohesity Roundtable


Title: Gain more control over your data, enable fresh business insights and embrace the cloud

Date: Thursday, 4 October 2018

Time: 08:00

This is an exclusive VIP session hosted by Cohesity. As one of 15 senior IT decision makers, or business owners, you will be surrounded by like-minded peers in a focused roundtable discussion.


John Lucey, Western European Country Manager

John Lucey

For over 7 years, John Lucey has been successfully running Hyper-convergence startups. 

John led the Global account teams for the joint venture between VMWare, Cisco and EMC - formerly known as VCE.  And for Dell Technologies Converged Platforms team, where he helped Global brands like BNP Paribas, BT, Novartis, DTAG and Vodafone consolidate and virtualise their primary storage and network infrastructure. 

John went on to set up Northern and Western Europe for HPE Simplivity, where the next generation of convergence was established in the market between Simplivity and Nutanix helping organisations deploy high levels of VDI across heterogeneous hardware. 

As the adoption of increasing convergence in the market matures, Cohesity is revolutionizing how the next generation of back-up should be architected. IT departments have not seen a significant change in architecture for more than 20 years.  During this informative roundtable, John will explore in more detail how Cohesity's journey started with consolidating complex back up environments into a web-scale global platform with google like search facilities, ideal for the ever increasing levels of compliance requirements and data growth. 


Cohesity is bringing a new approach to a $60B problem in IT that hasn’t seen innovation in decades. Up to 80% of a business’s data resides in secondary silos that are hard to manage, expensive to maintain, and nearly impossible to search and analyse. 

Cohesity collapses those silos onto a single, software-defined platform that eliminates the need for today’s complex legacy infrastructure. This allows IT to be much more responsive & agile, improve TCO (up to 50-80%), and even reduce business risk by shining a light on previously ‘dark’ data to promote compliance and security.  


  • Cohesity can help companies reduce operational expense while delivering better SLA's to users
  • Help companies be more competitive by making it easier to protect, access and exploit their data 
  • Mitigate risk by helping companies to prove compliance, recover from ransomware, and minimise downtime

Coffee and refreshments will commence from 08.00 when the doors open and breakfast will be provided from 08.15. Attendees to this roundtable will also benefit from reserved VIP seating for the opening keynote at 10:00 where Andrew Keen will open day 2 of the show.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cohesity's exclusive VIP area at Europe’s number one enterprise IT event.
