What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure what the current pricing is. We definitely got a good value at the time. I know that we were still among the early adopters. Between that and our… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

In terms of my first impression of Reduxio, and whether it has changed over time, the answer is "yes and no." The yes part is that there are new features that have arrived… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As I said, we have a different product in-house, and the parent company of that product actually owns a few others. I've been to a number of trade shows and seen yet more… more»

What is most valuable?

We were also pleased to learn that Reduxio also has, beside dedup and compression that actually works, the "time machine" built in, which allows you to go back a few… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our backup and recovery window, because you can have two Reduxio machines linked up, so every block that changes on the primary storage array gets… more»

What needs improvement?

The only thing that I'd like to see, at some point in time, is having the storage array being able to detect a ransomware attack. When you get hit by a ransomware it… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the pricing is good value, because you're not just buying a storage array, you're buying a backup solution and a DR solution and a "time machine" solution, all… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What is most valuable?

* Super easy to use, manage, maintain; just jump into the pool and start to swim, the learning curve was super quick. * Very good price/performance solution. *… more»

How has it helped my organization?

By using the BackDating option we can restore volumes based on time. It also reduces volumes and maintenance time. Before we moved to Reduxio, we had difficulties managing… more»

What needs improvement?

It needs integration with cloud vendors for remote storage, and to be able to restore a single machine from a specific volume. Integration is needed with other virtual… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The product's pricing is definitely a good value. I think that the license is pretty fair. As much as I know, there are two kinds of licenses, mostly for the capacity… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

We had a brief hiccup during one upgrade process, but it wasn't too extreme. I can't think of any other areas right now. During that upgrade we had a brief outage but it… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You want the best, you've got to pay for the best, that's all. In terms of licensing, just work with your VAR.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

The first impression of Reduxio, when I saw the demo at a colleague's workspace, it was pretty eye-opening and it just looked like a fantastic product. Having deployed it… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This device has allowed us to reduce our footprint, saving money on equipment refresh and maintenance. It has given us a major upgrade in performance I/O, increasing… more»

What needs improvement?

* Have some hooks into cloud storage for backup. * Update the system to use additional secondary storage as a resource.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Only one device is sold. Negotiate the initial storage, but you can start small and move up with ease. Negotiate. We went with the base tier. It's one size. Even though… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

We have not looked into the option of replacing our storage and backup with Reduxio’s converged primary and secondary platform. However, we were impressed by the TimeOS… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The Reduxio box has improved our resiliency and management overhead. While EqualLogic provided a very elaborate SAN HQ to manage the box, Reduxio offers a very simple… more»

What needs improvement?

Make it easier to use with slightly older versions of VMware. The ability to look at data at a file level would be useful, as well as the ability recover at that level… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have full use of the box (in terms of capacity). I think that you are able to buy a minimum capacity, then grow your capacity within the box as you expand your data… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

I suggest you obtain it if you can. It is not a difficult decision to make at this point in time. In time, it is possible that other manufacturers will catch up with the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated only one other before we came across Reduxio. Once we found out what the box could do, which as of yet (to my knowledge) other vendors can't, it was just a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This product has not improved the way my organization functions (yet) but it has the potential to get my organization up and running within seconds of incurring a… more»

What needs improvement?

I think that the only issue that I would like to see an improvement in would be the price.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing/licensing is a business decision based on an equation of risk versus opportunity. I cannot offer advice on this issue.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

My first impression of Reduxio was, "Hey, this is the first solution that I have ever encountered that can truly ensure business continuity," and my impression has not yet… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What is most valuable?

* Fast * Data-efficient * The down-to-the-second restore capability, native to the device * The UI is very simple in Reduxio, not difficult at all to navigate and work… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are almost entirely virtualized, so responsive and reliable flash storage for our VMs is critical to performance.

What needs improvement?

Room for improvement is a harder question than you might think. Reduxio does its job very well for us. Reliable and fast. The latest release limits web access to the admin… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The compression and dedupe are very effective on Reduxio, so it may be worth asking about licensing partial capacity on a unit, if the full capacity seems overkill for… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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.

What other advice do I have?

Our first impression of Reduxio was that it was simple to setup and use, and highly reliable. That impression has not changed over time at all. They definitely feel like a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We mostly evaluated against a refresh of our existing Nimble storage.
