"In the past, as the amount of data increased, it would require me to write a bigger check to address the issue. But now, because of Igneous, I don’t have to hire any more people, I don’t have to take on any more risk, and I don’t have to increase my management in any way."

"One of the key advantages Igneous has over competitors, and one of the reasons we chose Igneous, is that we really felt Igneous is interested in the domain itself. They’re interested in helping us build PAIGE into a company that will actually help doctors and patients. That deep involvement of Igneous engineers and experts in actually developing our data infrastructure—not only storage but also the management systems—was absolutely key to building a high performance compute infrastructure."

"My interpretation of success is, nobody has escalated anything to me yet. It’s an elegantly, outstandingly simple solution."
