Rapid, Flexile Backup & Recovery

It's all about recovery for Big Data.

You only backup to enable recovery. And recovery should be fast, flexible, and reliable to be effective. Can scripting enable that? No. Are standard solutions good enough? No.

At Imanis Data, Big Data recovery is a key focus. We allow you to recover 10x the data in 1/10th the time of standard solutions, all via our simple yet powerful software platform.

PB-scale, granular control, point-in-time flexibility, and parallel processing all give you the fastest, easiest, and most flexible recovery on the market.

Unmatched Big Data Backup

Scripting can't deliver fast and reliable recovery. That means downtime, and could mean your job.

Go beyond scripting or the mere snapshots and stock replication of database vendor platforms with the industry's leading Big Data backup and recovery solution. Minimize downtime, slash storage costs up to 80%, ensure data is secure, and free up scarce engineering resources.

Scalable to Petabytes

Expand with ease. Recover petabytes of data quickly and seamlessly, thanks to a distributed, scale-out architecture and parallel processing.

Incremental Forever

Perform a full backup only once. All subsequent backups are incrementally copied to Imanis Data, reducing storage footprint. Data is stored in logical, not synthetic form, dramatically increasing recovery speed.


Enable point-in-time recovery that includes metadata such as file/directory attributes as well as table/database schemas.


Keep pace with nodes constantly being commissioned and decommissioned.

Storage and Security Optimized

Reduce storage footprint up to 80% with global block-level deduplication, compression and erasure coding. Secure data with masking, role-based access control, authentication, and anomaly detection

Data Backup & Recovery By The Numbers

Runs 10x FASTER than native NoSQL and Hadoop platform utilities while scaling to 10x dataset size.
Saves up to 80% on secondary storage costs.
Easily handles the scale of a single application
Through Reltio data-driven applications business users access and expect constant availability of this data. Imanis Data's backup, recovery and test data management solution is an ideal fit for our rapidly growing DataStax Enterprise environment, and their recent security and AWS S3 enhancements are critical for our customers, particularly in highly regulatory environments.

Vice President, Engineering

The rapid rise of big data applications is changing how companies protect and manage the availability of data throughout the application life cycle -- concurrently we are acutely more aware of the tremendous business value that all data holds.

Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group

If you thought the need for backup somehow evaporated with the advent of Hadoop, its probably because you don't really understand backup.

Robin Bloor

Co-Founder & Chief Analyst

Business applications built on top of modern data platforms such as MongoDB and Cassandra are just as exposed to the threat of ransomware and critical data loss as traditional applications. Yet, many IT managers are just beginning to look at data protection requirements for these applications. IT organizations need to consider data protection tools designed specifically for these environments, such as Imanis Data, because some of the underlying architectural issues are different from traditional data types.

Phil Goodwin

Research Director

Speed and efficiency of recovery is vitally important in helping us achieve our business goals. We’ve found that Imanis Data 3.0 is the only platform that can easily scale with our growing business and data needs. Its rapid backup and recovery capabilities have reduced our potential downtime to a minimum and have helped our business run more efficiently.

Rodrigo Balan

Network Operations Manager

When we moved to a Big Data architecture, we knew that application and data recovery was a fundamental requirement. Where most companies fall short, Imanis Data provides that at scale.

What would it cost you to rebuild a lost data set?

Prior to using Imanis Data, one customer lost 400TB of data due to human error. It took four weeks to rebuild the data set, and cost the company over $1M in lost opportunities.
