Storage technology developer Igneous Systems came out of stealth in October with a plan to turn the management of on-premises storage into a low-cost cloud service. The Seattle-based company provides an on-premises storage array that sits behind the customer's firewall to protect the data. Monitoring, management, and troubleshooting of the array and its data are handled over the cloud by Igneous, freeing customers from those tasks.
The Igneous Data Service supports the Amazon S3 standard for cloud-based object storage. Pricing starts at $40,000 per year, which includes 212 TB of capacity, which is under $200 per Terabyte, or about 1.5 cents per Gigabyte, per month.
