English term or phrase: anti-Teflon product
That’s why trying to position Cohesity in a single standard file storage activity-related box is like nailing jelly to a wall; it’s virtually impossible. All of which makes multi-personality Cohesity an {anti-Teflon product}; remarkably sticky software.

an anti-teflon product
反特氟龙产品(超粘性产品)


Explanation:
特氟龙是常用于不粘锅的材料,特色就是“滑”,没有“粘性”

这里说这个软件是“remarkably sticky software”,应该是说“粘性”特别强,相比是个比喻的说法

在译文中保留这种比喻比较难,译作“超粘性产品”如何?

标题译作“粘性超强的Cohesity出现身份问题”如何?

文中说:All of which makes multi-personality Cohesity an anti-Teflon {product}

这个上下文里面是把Cohesity(或者他们的产品/服务)当作一种"product"来看待的

Notes to answerer
Asker: 文章的标题是:Anti-Teflon Cohesity has an identity problem,Cohesity是一家IT公司,确切地说,是一家存储公司。

Asker: 感觉处理成“粘性超强的”还是不太好懂。

an anti-teflon product
万金油产品


Explanation:
英文中的word play 在翻译时要完全保留几乎是不可能的。Cohesive 本身有黏性的,凝聚的意思,以此词源作为公司名,该数据公司估计是想突出公司的经营特点 —— 凝聚数据,多用途地运用数据。英文运用了公司名中“粘”的含义,指出这是一款很“粘”的软件,以形容该软件的多功能性,并用特富龙的“不粘”特点为反面比喻。中文要还原特富龙的英文比喻不太可能。可以转成万金油的比喻,指出该软件是一款哪里都能“粘”的产品。
