Is Switching Backup Vendors Really Such a Hassle?

By Lily Bowdler on May 1, 2018

We’re a vendor. We get it. Even if a modern enterprise customer is a little bit miserable, trying to keep up with their backup SLAs, comply with industry regulations, and keep data available to end users, all while watching their budget spiral out of control, it’s a total hassle to go out and evaluate a bunch of backup vendors. Then, once you decide to move forward with a “more modern” option, you expect to go through the motions of managing a major project.

New Feature: Protect Data with Write Once Read Many (WORM) for Backup and Archive

By Christian Smith on November 9, 2017

Businesses are required to keep data for regulatory, compliance, or legal reasons. Despite backup retention policies built into many legacy backup software packages, administrators often have the ability to inadvertently delete or modify data governed by higher-level business requirements, either by changing policy in the backup software or potentially bypassing the backup software and accessing the underlying storage directly.

New Feature: Increase Data Throughput with Network Data Compression

By Catherine Chiang on November 3, 2017

When moving large amounts of data between datacenters and/or public cloud, the amount of bandwidth in the datacenter often exceeds the bandwidth between datacenters, limiting throughput and speed of data movement.

To accommodate this bandwidth imbalance, Igneous recently released a new feature: network data compression, which enables customers using our Remote Service Router to compress data traversing their wide area network (WAN).

What does this mean for customers? Let’s break it down.
