What is Igneous DataDiscover?

Engineered to provide comprehensive, up-to-date visibility into an organization’s full portfolio of unstructured data, Igneous™ DataDiscover™ offers a high-performance scan engine that can quickly identify new and changed data even in multi-petabyte environments with billions of files.

Igneous DataDiscover can be deployed either as a virtual machine, or an existing on-premises Igneous instance. Once deployed, Igneous DataDiscover scans NFS and SMB/CIFS exports on all registered NAS systems, discovering and indexing metadata from all files and directories on those NAS systems to create a full-scale view of the entire portfolio of unstructured data throughout the site.

Depending on NAS and network capabilities, the high-performance engine can scan hundreds of thousands of objects per second, generating reports in minutes or hours, even in large environments. This up-to-date visibility into your entire unstructured environment enables you to get a clear understanding of:

  • How much data you have
  • Where it's stored
  • How long since any object has been accessed or modified

Armed with this information, you will be able to make informed decisions about storage optimization, growth planning, archival strategies, and cost reductions.
