Syros Protects Computational Biology Data at Half the Cost of Legacy Backup

by Shaun Kehrberg – September 10, 2019

Syros Pharmaceuticals is a pioneering life sciences company focused on a new area of medicine called gene therapy. By creating medicines to control the expression of genes, Syros’ goal is to make a profound difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.


With ground-breaking research comes massive amounts of computational biology data.  Syros’ legacy data protection solutions were pieced together, resulting in siloed data that was often under-protected. The team turned to Igneous for its ability to manage unstructured data at scale, enabling IT to run backups for millions of files without babysitting, without the traditional cost of backup systems, and without any impact to their NAS performance.


Igneous benefits for Syros Pharmaceuticals include:

  • Saving 15 hours a week by eliminating babysitting of legacy backups 
  • 40x faster time to complete file data jobs 
  • Restored 45 days of work in only 23 seconds
