SEATTLE, WA, November 14, 2018 – Igneous, the leader in Unstructured Data Management (UDM), announced the immediate availability of enhanced integrations with all three major public cloud storage providers. These enhanced integrations give data-centric organizations the flexibility and control to programmatically move individual datasets and exports to any storage tier in public clouds. In addition, cloud data management operations are handled via the Igneous UDM as-a-Service solution, affording customers lower operational costs.
Customers currently use Igneous’ API-based cloud storage integrations for efficient long-term data protection and archive. Moving datasets in and out of public clouds from datacenters at scale can be a burden for enterprise IT departments, which face growing challenges to move data—regardless of size of files, density of filesystems, or volume of data offsite for storage cost optimization. Igneous' exclusive NAS export control shifts this burden onto the Igneous platform via programmatic, end-to-end unstructured data management as-a-Service. Igneous equips customers to automatically replicate backup exports and archive datasets to Microsoft Azure’s Hot, Cool, and Archive storage tiers; Google Cloud Platform’s Regional, Nearline, and Coldline storage tiers; and Amazon Web Services’ S3 Standard, S3 Infrequent Access (IA), and Glacier storage tiers.
“As an innovator in biomedical research and science, we generate immense amounts of high-fidelity data—all of which is critically important to our core mission,” says Michael Cockrill, CIO at Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences. “Protecting and housing those assets in our datacenter for the long term is not strategically or economically where we want to go. Igneous’ automated cloud tiering to any region and at multiple storage tiers within all major public clouds gives us choice and agility no other solution offers today.”
“When it comes to which tier and provider of cloud storage to use to optimize capacity and build cost-effective off-site data protection, organizations have been limited by legacy backup tools”, said Kiran Bhageshpur, CEO, Igneous. “Igneous customers have unmatched agility and choice for seamless data movement across multiple clouds.”
Igneous delivers the only Unstructured Data Management (UDM) as-a-Service solution, giving data-centric enterprises visibility, protection, and data mobility at scale. Igneous’ API-enabled, cloud-native solution combines all UDM functions so organizations can see, protect, analyze, and leverage all of their unstructured data, wherever datasets and workflows live. Igneous: The right data, in the right place, at the right time.
