Primary NAS Integrations - Scale Out NAS

Primary NAS Integrations

Igneous was designed to make any scale backup easy by integrating with enterprise NAS vendors. Protection is driven through simple policies that are either auto-assigned based on automatic export discovery or administratively assigned through the user interface. All data movement is highly-parallel and latency aware, ensuring fast movement without application disruption. This scale out approach is far more effective than traditional NDMP backup, as it minimizes the impact on primary tiers and eliminates backup windows.

Igneous provides native API integration for Dell EMC Isilon, NetApp, Pure Storage FlashBlade, and Qumulo QF2. In addition, Igneous is the industry's only data protection solution capable of supporting Pure FlashBlade Object storage, direct API integration with QF2 by Qumulo, and multi-protocol support for Isilon OneFS - all the first of their kind in the industry.

This API integration automates backup by: 

  • Scale to billions of files across your data center and the cloud
  • Automating system export discovery and permissions provisioning for exports
  • Monitoring latency to ensure backups do not impact end user applications
  • Managing snapshots for read-consistent backups

Igneous can also backup any generic NAS file systems at scale with parallel, latency aware data movement.
