Integration with Microsoft Azure StorageIgneous, built for managing file-based backups, provides native integration with Azure Storage. Together, Igneous and Azure allow you to backup unstructured data stored on your primary network attached storage (NAS) file systems, efficiently move large amounts of data to Azure Storage, and protect and manage your data with tiering and replication to cloud. Igneous integrates across any storage tier of Azure, including Hot, Cool, and Archive.
The Igneous platform provides a highly efficient data movement engine that maximizes efficiency and minimizes cost of data movement. Igneous is designed specifically for the challenges of moving unstructured data to Azure. Moving large and small files at scale can be cost prohibitive and resource intensive. The Igneous platform removes these obstacles through transfer compression, object grouping, or automated integration with Azure Databox.
Igneous provides visibility to your data wherever it lives, whether it is on Igneous or stored in any tier of Azure. Additionally, data moved to Azure through the Igneous platform can be stored in native format, or in an open, self-describing format to ensure organizations always maintain control.
