Reduxio [EOL] Previous Solutions

We still have the other solution. We've had one for many years, long before Reduxio came on the scene, and we have been enhancing and upgrading that one. We are big enough to need more than one data center, and when looking how to enhance and build out the second data center, an opportunity presented itself, and that's when we deployed the Reduxio. So, we really haven't replaced anything yet, for some of the reasons I elsewhere in this review, with the whole funding scenario. At that same time, when we were working on the data center, my other SAN product, also monitored, sent a notice, an email, that we had had a disruption, many hours after the fact. After all the services were restored, no one from the other company made any proactive effort to find out what was going on. That is just one of the differences. View full review »

We previously used NetApp, but all our developers were complaining about the performance. After our proof of concept with Reduxio was over, because the paperwork was taking awhile through our legal department, we had to move all of our guests off the Reduxio back to our NetApp storage. Within a week, every developer was calling, complaining about how horrible the performance was, and they needed more memory, and they needed more CPU. We had to explain this to every one of them that called and say, "No it's not that, it's the fact that we had to temporarily move off of Reduxio back onto NetApp, and that as soon as the paperwork was done we were going to move back to Reduxio." That's a really good testimony to their performance capability. View full review »

We used traditional storage but when they didn't renew support we found Reduxio. We switched to Reduxio mostly because of faster performance. They challenged, big-time, the past performance we had seen. Once we trusted the product, we felt comfortable to make the change and switch over. View full review »

The old solution was slow, expensive, and support stopped resolving my issues. View full review »

Yes, I was on Dell EqualLogic and switched because the product has been discontinued. I loved the system and spent a long time on my evaluation of new storage solutions to make sure I was making the right choice. If you liked EqualLogic, you will love Reduxio. It has more performance, better backups, and it is even easier to use (if you can believe it)! View full review »

We were using EqualLogic from Dell, and it was just slow as molasses. Dell is just too big. They say they're for their SMB customer, but they really aren't. They really just want to push product. Plus, they gave up on a product that they were marketing as an overall solution. So now I have a solution from them, not that it's supposed to last forever, but now it's just an aging, obsolete piece of equipment basically. View full review »

Hardware refresh cycle demanded the replacement of an older EMC VNXe 3100 unit within our VMware array. We needed to find a new solution for our data store. We looked around, we shopped at all the products that were out there. We looked at hyper-converged. And at the end of the day, Reduxio met the needs that we had, actually exceeded them at the time.

My file storage solutions right now are both getting to end-of-life. I have a solution from HPE and a solution from EMC. The idea is to make Reduxio my primary storage. Instead of having two different systems, I'll just have one big one. View full review »

Having come to the end of the road for our EqualLogic SANs, we were looking for a new SAN. Around the same time (end of 2016), 2017 was predicted be the year of ransomware and that many services would be disrupted by ransomware attacks. We switched because our warranties had come to an end. We had the option to buy a new SAN, if needed. View full review »

I have restored data with other solutions, but they were not comparable to Reduxio with regards to immediacy, flexibility, frequency of restore points, efficiency of data management, and ease of user interface. View full review »

We previously used Nimble (still have an older install on premise), and switched largely due to price and for the restore flexibility of the Reduxio. View full review »

I used many, six or seven vendors before Reduxio. NetApp, EMC, IBM, HPE, etc. What makes Reduxio different is the ease of use, although the reliability is the same as the others. My three-year-old daughter, who knows how to play with an iPad can easily manage the Reduxio system. It took five minutes of learning. The learning curve is very fast. We also switched because of the value for money of Reduxio is very high. View full review »

Yes, we used a different product from one of the large storage vendors. We switched because the service contract ended. View full review »

We did use a previous solution. We opened it up for alternate competitive solutions, and Reduxio won out. View full review »

We augmented our environment with the Reduxio. The VMs were previously on a RAID 6 system which was more difficult to share among hosts simultaneously. The flashcache and deduplication are the distinguishing characteristics from the system that Reduxio replaced for VMs. View full review »

We've used other storage and other back up solutions. We've never had it in one box. We switched because we needed a new storage and backup solution and this one fit both those bills together. View full review »

Yes, it was out of date, and we were running out of space. View full review »

The performance increase is significant over our replaced storage. Our servers respond lightning fast and the end user experience has greatly improved. We can offer a lot more storage to our end users. View full review »
