To constrain datacenter footprint and provide long-term retention, Igneous automates tiering or replication to other Igneous appliances and leading public cloud providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. Cloud tiering integrates with customer-provided public cloud accounts.
The benefits of integrating Igneous with your public cloud vendor includes:
Igneous, built for managing file-based backups, provides native integration with Azure Storage. Together, Igneous and Azure allow you to backup unstructured data stored on your primary network attached storage (NAS) file systems, efficiently move large amounts of data to Azure Storage, and protect and manage your data with tiering and replication to cloud. Igneous integrates across any storage tier of Azure, including Hot, Cool, and Archive.
Igneous makes both tiering and data replication to Google Cloud Platform easy. IT can set policies to tier data for archive or replicate data with our user-friendly interface. Backups run automatically in the background without impacting performance, saving IT time and reducing user frustration. Igneous integrates and manages data across Regional, Nearline, and Coldline storage tiers, allowing data to be where it needs to be when it needs to be there.
