2019: Year in Review

By Shaun Kehrberg on January 13, 2020

It was a banner year here at Igneous. From innovative new feature launches to securing our Series-C funding, 2019 was an exciting year for the #1 unstructured data management solution.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s what Igneous customers had to say this year:

“We have multiple projects generating data every day that needs to be stored, processed, protected, and archived. DataDiscover gives us the visibility we need to better manage our primary storage. DataProtect allows us to easily backup and archive data across a number of sites, both on premises and in the cloud”.

  - Carl Lucas, VP Information Technology at Quantum Spatial (QSI)

“It’s an elegantly, outstandingly simple solution. I get to sleep easier at night knowing our backup and data requirement needs are being met, and knowing Igneous’ ability to scale will meet our expanding requirements in the future.”

  - Sanjay Das, Partner & COO at Tippett Studio

Making Cloud a Cost-Effective Reality for Enterprise NAS Data

For years, it’s been said that you can’t take advantage of the cloud for file data protection because it would be too expensive, or too hard. But as file data growth continues, the mechanics and economics of the cloud have continued to evolve as well. That’s why in 2019 we continued our focus on making cloud economics a reality for file backup and archive at scale. We now offer the most flexible deployment options, including the ability to deploy Igneous using a stateless virtual machine (VM). Hosted on our customer’s own virtual infrastructure, this software-only version of Igneous writes data directly to any public cloud tier.  

ICYMI, here’s a highlight list of our top releases from 2019:

File Analysis with DataDiscover

DataDiscover helps data-centric enterprises continuously understand how much data they have on primary NAS, how old it is, and where it’s located to make better storage optimization decisions and reduce spend.

Enterprise NAS Backup and Archive with DataProtect

This year we released the software-only version of DataProtect, our backup and archive service that writes data directly to any public cloud tier.

AWS Integration + AWS Marketplace

Write data directly to any AWS S3 storage tier including S3 Standard, Standard-IA, S3 One Zone-IA, S3 Glacier, and S3 Glacier Deep Archive.

Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Integration + Azure Marketplace

Write data directly to all Microsoft Azure Blog Storage tiers. 

Google Cloud Platform Integration

Write data to all Google Cloud Platform (GCP) storage classes including GCP Coldline Storage.

Stay tuned to our blog in 2020. We’ll have new customer stories to highlight, more content about unstructured data management best practices, tools to help you calculate cost savings, and the latest product announcements.
