February 4, 2020

BOSTON, MA – February 4, 2020 – Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced its partnership with Igneous, the SaaS data management company for file intensive environments. Igneous customers are able to immediately use Wasabi as a target for NAS backup and archive to unlock the benefits of Wasabi’s disruptively low price and high performing cloud storage. With Wasabi, cloud storage is simple and affordable at 1/5 the price of Amazon S3 and faster than the competition, with no fees for egress or API requests.

As enterprises increasingly migrate to cloud storage for enhanced data protection capacity, many encounter new challenges when predicting their cloud SLAs and operating costs. The joint solution from Igneous and Wasabi empowers enterprises to simplify their cloud strategy and enables the movement of unstructured data from any primary NAS system to Wasabi storage at a predictable and cost-effective price point. Offering a highly parallelized system architecture, Wasabi is a high-performance, one-size-fits-all object storage service that eliminates the need for hierarchical cloud storage tiers and policies.

“Our enterprise customers are highly interested in a data management solution to use with Wasabi for their demanding file environments. Igneous is a solution that can handle the petabytes of data and billions of files that are difficult for backup and archive,” said Jim Donovan, SVP, Product at Wasabi.

Igneous enables enterprise companies with petabytes of file data or billions of files to consume Wasabi as a target for backup and archive operations. It provides a multi-threaded scan engine, AdaptiveSCAN, that can discover and index billions of files per day. In addition, the Igneous data-movement engine, IntelliMOVE, organizes data into dozens of parallel streams that can leverage available network bandwidth between NAS systems and Wasabi hot cloud storage to meet the most demanding SLAs.

“We are excited to partner with Wasabi to help our customers overcome the common concern of predicting the transaction costs associated with moving and accessing data as enterprises shift from secondary data centers to the cloud. Wasabi provides predictable pricing, fast access and security at lower operational costs,” said Christian Smith VP of Product at Igneous.
