April 30, 2020 Earlier this week, Igneous, the SaaS data management company for file-intensive environments announced enhancements to DataDiscover and DataFlow. Igneous DataFlow now enables data-heavy organizations to move data in native format from where it lives to where it needs to be, on-premises or cloud. Igneous DataDiscover catalogs all data where it lives. Now organizations can enable end users to see their data their way and find what’s important to them.

“Existing applications aren’t designed to scale to the millions, billions, and trillions of files that you’re all seeing,” Adam Marko, Scientific Solutions Lead, Engineering said today in a Bio-IT World Webinar on data ecosystems to accelerate research. “We’re launching [DataDiscover] as a new product with a number of different features this week, and we know probably all of you have multiple NAS systems across your organization. There’s a sprawl of sciences and… a mix of vendors handling all types of data and all types of users. What does this visibly mean? You want to have views to be able to customize biovisualization. You want to be able to specifically search and it’s always been important—a cornerstone of researcher—to share with collaborators. The results of this is you can draw insights, save time, and—most importantly—research is accelerated.”

Igneous DataDiscover and DataFlow enhancements allow customers full visibility into their data anywhere it lives, and the ability to move data to anywhere it needs to be. DataFlow and DataDiscover complement the Igneous suite of SaaS offerings, helping organizations take control of their data at scale. 

Igneous DataFlow is geared toward data-heavy organizations that are always moving data between on-premises and cloud storage. These organizations require a fast, simple, and scalable way to move data in native formats at low operational costs. Igneous DataFlow enables organizations to leverage new NAS devices and use cloud file systems or objects without vendor lock-in. DataFlow is tier-agnostic and system-agnostic.

Igneous DataDiscover provides visibility for all data to make intelligent decisions. DataDiscover enables data owners to interact with live views, where users can search for their data to be more productive, no matter where it lives. Data owners can now spend more time doing their job and less time finding their data.

“DataDiscover unlocks massive increases in productivity and innovation by enabling engineers, researchers, and scientists to explore and find their data in seconds rather than hours or days,” said Grant Tomlin, Account Executive, InterVision Systems, in an announcement this week. “IT can quickly understand data across their entire environment and stay ahead of the organization’s needs rather than always being two steps behind. It gives them back a sense of control over their unstructured data,” Tomlin continued.

Since the Igneous suite of services are all SaaS deployed, getting started is as easy as deploying a virtual machine. DataDiscover and DataFlow enhancements will be available for Igneous customers as of May 15, 2020.
