scan faster than Flash

Igneous AdaptiveSCAN™ was specifically built to scan through massive file systems with speed and efficiency. 

  • Userspace client 
  • No file system ‘mounts’
  • Dynamic threading
  • Dynamic work allocation

AdaptiveSCAN™ works at a rate of 400,000 files per second, per task, with 75% fewer IOPs over traditional Windows or Linux clients.


A Look Behind AdaptiveSCAN: 




at line speed, no matter what

Igneous IntelliMOVE™ is a purpose-built, multithreaded, data movement engine for pipelined operations.

  • Userspace client 
  • No file system ‘mounts’
  • In-line compression 
  • Latency awareness 
  • Highly multi-threaded for specific files (small vs large)

IntelliMOVE™ keeps networks busy for any mix of small and large files.
