5 Reasons to Visit Igneous at Bio-IT World

by Tammy Batey – May 19, 2017

Genomics research. Cardiovascular simulations. Antibody discovery. At Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, researchers and clinical practitioners meet at the intersection of medicine and computer science.

This year’s Bio-IT World, which is May 23-25 in Boston, will draw more than 3,000 attendees eager to discuss exciting and eclectic research. One consistent struggle? All of the data produced by that research, according to Allison Proffitt, Editorial Director of Bio-IT World & Clinical Informatics News.

“The volumes of data that we’re producing dwarf what we’ve done in the past,” Allison says in a 2016 conference video. “Conversations increasingly center on ways to move, share and store that data. … Bio IT-World serves as a hub for the very smart people taking on all sides of this problem.”

Igneous Systems is excited to be among the more than 160 exhibitors showcasing products and solutions related to this challenge. We look forward to meeting people, and talking about strategies for making data storage, backup and archive less frustrating. We’ll be in Booth #453 near Presentation Theater and the conference center entrance.

We hope to see you at our booth at Bio-IT World! Read on for five reasons to connect with Igneous Systems at the conference, including getting inside scoop on our new consolidated backup and archive solution. Check out our Life Sciences page for details on how to protect your file data.


Reason #1 - Learn how backups can run seamlessly to protect your data

If your organization is like most attending Bio-IT World, backing up your critical data is essential but backups via traditional methods often slow you down. In fact, traditional backup impacts system performance so much that end users can tell they’re happening. As a result, many IT departments will cancel backups, putting their organization’s data at risk.

In contrast, backups via Igneous Backup run so seamlessly that end users and running jobs won’t be able to tell they’re happening. That means more productive employees and more efficient use of your computing resources, all while providing continuous protection for your organization’s important data.


Reason #2 - See how simple it can be to archive data

We hear from many organizations frustrated by the complexity of archiving data. We don’t think archiving data should be so difficult. After all, archiving data and freeing space on your expensive performance storage tier can save your organization a lot of money.

With a powerful, user-friendly search and analytics interface, Igneous Archive simplifies archiving so both business users and IT can easily archive, restore and download data. And Igneous Archive includes our File Insights feature that recommends data to archive, ensuring you save as much money on primary storage as possible.


Reason #3 - Get a demo of consolidated backup and archive

Our new consolidated backup and archive solution enables you to use a single secondary storage tier for both backup and archive of file systems. It’s complex to backup and archive unstructured data. Our solution significantly simplifies secondary storage.

How simple do we make it? Stop by the booth and we’ll be be happy to show you.

Reason #4 - Meet the Igneous team!

Igneous Systems employees nicknamed Rocks are friendly, knowledgeable and ready to meet attendees of Bio-IT World. CEO and Co-founder Kiran Bhageshpur, and Rocks Kevin Kotecki, Andy Pernsteiner, Aldo Perez and Lily Albrecht will be in Booth #453 and eager to talk to visitors.

They understand the challenges of data storage that organizations like yours struggle with and want to help. Want to share the research you’re working on? Chat about data storage challenges or bioinformatics? Ask questions about protecting your research data? Stop by our booth and we’ll be happy to help.


Reason #5 - Protect your work and your team's work

Conferences provide context for the important work your organization does. Whether you’re attending Bio-IT World alone or with co-workers, you’re likely going to chat with other attendees. You’ll gain perspective on how your work fits into Life Sciences as a whole and a new appreciation for the value of your research.

We respect the exciting research of organizations at Bio-IT World, and we can't wait to attend. Visit us in Booth #453 near Presentation Theater and the conference center entrance to learn how to protect your team's research with a secondary storage solution that makes it easy to backup, archive and store unstructured data.

Hope to see you at Bio-IT World!

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.
