InfinSnap stands for infinite snapshots. It is patent pending technology that enables a user to go back in time and view the bucket as it existed at any time in the past. Reading from any snapshot is as quick as reading directly from the bucket as there is no recovery step in the process. It is like Apple Time Machine, except it is more powerful. Users do not need to initiate an explicit snapshot action. There is no data copy involved as this is pure metadata operation.
InfinSnap is useful for:
- Data Provenance - go back in time and view
- A/B testing - train model against old snapshot, then new snapshot. compare
