Cobalt is one of Ireland’s leading infrastructure and managed service providers. We’re passionate about outstanding customer service – which inspires our flexible, friendly approach to business. In addition to our managed services offerings we provide customers with infrastructure, datacentre and networking solutions combined with all the services required to design, deliver and support these on premise or in the cloud.
Cobalt works with customers to simplify the IT product lifecycle and to remove cost from the IT supply chain – from product selection, benchmarking and procurement all the way through to build management and deployment.
From infrastructure provision to third-party services, virtualization to automation, our datacentre experts build comprehensive server, storage, and networking solutions for workloads of all types and scale.
Cobalt is Ireland’s only Premium partner for Pure Storage and the exclusive partner for Rubrik, we build platforms on Pure Storage and Rubrik to deliver high performing, resilient and cost effect data platforms.
The Pure Storage Data Platform is powered by software and hardware that’s effortless to use and efficient from end-to-end, and non-disruptive to upgrade. It’s got everything you need to drive industry-defining innovation and achieve business results that were previously unimaginable. Software-defined, hardware-accelerated, and purpose-built for the cloud era, the Data Platform delivers always on and always fast data services that are effortless, efficient, and evergreen.
Pure Storage enables the broad deployment of flash in the data centre. When compared to traditional disk-centric arrays, Pure Storage all-flash enterprise arrays are 10x faster and 10x more space and power efficient at a price point that is less than performance disk per gigabyte stored. The Pure Storage FlashArray is ideal for high performance workloads, including server virtualization, desktop virtualization (VDI), database (OLTP, real-time analytics) and cloud computing.
Cobalt is the exclusive partner in Ireland for Rubrik, delivering unprecedented simplicity with policy-driven data management. Cobalt can integrate Rubrik seamlessly into existing backup workflows and tools of choice. Our experts help customers to automate data protection, replication, and archival schedules in minutes, enabling faster recoveries with an incremental-forever approach.
Converged infrastructure is a proven platform that makes your data centre, (on or off premise, in the cloud) more efficient, saves time and resources, and reduces the risk associated with delivering mission-critical applications.
Couple it with flash storage to quickly deploy a business-critical IT infrastructure with reduced risk and a lower cost of ownership. The nature of workloads varies across businesses but they all demand performance, reliability, and scalability. Our goal is to match those workloads to the right infrastructure to achieve efficiency, cost savings, and operational success.
