Igneous Systems was started in October 2013 with veterans from Isilon and NetApp and was launched three years later in October 2016. Their product Igneous Hybrid Storage Cloud, now known as Igneous DataProtect, is a modern scale-out solution designed for backup, archiving and cloud tiering of unstructured file data. It is designed to provide data management for many billions of files, hundreds of file systems and many petabytes of data. Igneous is focused on file data only and not on the protection of VMs or databases. The Igneous DataProtect solution is delivered as-a-Service, as software, or as an applicance including the hardware and software components, installation and remote management.
Igneous combines backup with archive and cloud tiering to create a secondary storage system that can replace multiple purpose-built systems. Igneous DataProtect can perform backup and archive of file data from Network Attached Storage (NAS) via NFS or SMB to its own native object store. In addition, applications can read from and write to the Igneous object store directly via the S3 API.
The major features of Igneous DataProtect are included in three areas –Backup, Archive and Cloud Tiering, which are described in the following paragraphs.
