How Igneous Optimizes Data Movement

by Lily Bowdler – August 22, 2018

Our co-founder and Architect, Byron Rakitzis, recently wrote an article over at DZone called "Parallelizing MD5 Checksum Computation to Speed Up S3-Compatible Data Movement."

It walks you through one way we use the Go assembler to speed up data movement for our customers.

If you're a software engineer wondering whether Igneous is a fun place to work, and perhaps whether you'd fit in at a place that does do a lot of low-level engineering, this article will give you a small taste of the types of problems we solveand hopefully inspire you to come help us solve the next one!

Coming Soon: A New Approach to Protecting Datasets

December 17, 2018

Unstructured data has grown at an annual compounded rate of 25% for the past ten years, and shows no sign of slowing. For most organizations, “data management” for unstructured data has really just meant capacity management, i.e. increase capacity to keep up with data growth. This model worked at moderate scales, but as datasets have increased in size, complexity, and quantity, it has pushed the scales into petabytes of data with billions of files, and overwhelmed budgets. Enterprises are now asking for data management strategies that do more than just provide continuously increasing capacity.

Altius Institute Accelerates Medical Breakthroughs with Igneous Data Protection as-a-Service

November 12, 2018

Protecting and managing enormous datasets was an increasingly urgent problem for the Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences, where their data is at the core of advancing discoveries that save lives. Legacy backup tools proved too expensive due to Altius’ large infrastructure and IT resource requirements, leading Altius to choose Igneous for its scalability, simplicity, and long-term data management and distribution solutions.

What's the State of Unstructured Data Management in 2018?

October 23, 2018

We are in the midst of a dramatic shift from the majority of organizations’ data being structured (application data often sitting in relational databases and VMs) to unstructured (data within individual files and objects)...machine-generated unstructured data. So dramatic, in fact, experts estimate that 90% of organizational data is unstructured.
