What is most valuable?

We used, and still use, another SAN product in our other data center. We like the way the Reduxio is designed, the way the managing/operating end is just so much easier… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest improvement, and most visible from the technical standpoint, where my group is the system administration group, is it's just easier to operate. It has a very… more»

What needs improvement?

Some of the things that needed improvement have been already been worked on. When we first got it, it was a fantastic stand-alone unit but didn't have a lot of the… more»

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 other advice do I have?

I was quite blown away in Irvine when I first saw the presentation from Reduxio, because it was everything that I was looking for, and they lived up to everything they… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Unicom is a software development company, and as such we have a very unique storage workload. I spent a year and a half researching storage arrays, and I went through EMC… 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 other advice do I have?

We have already replaced our storage and backup with Reduxio’s converged primary and secondary platform. My first impression was, "Wow, it's cool, I don’t believe that it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated EMC and HPE. We looked at and considered Nimble, before it became HPE, and we looked for an IBM solution. When I looked for other vendors I found their… more»

What is most valuable?

There are several features which have really set Reduxio apart in my mind as we went to renew our SAN storage and chose Reduxio: 1) The pre-processing dedupe engine they… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have been able to get about 60,000 IOPS and 2,000 MBps of throughput. My business was previously running on 5,000 IOPS and 500 MBps of throughput per SAN. This is a huge… more»

What needs improvement?

I am waiting on a feature set in the new version which should allow me to replicate between Reduxio iSCSI SANs for disaster recovery and also to 3rd party iSCSI SANs which… more»

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

It was the best price for capacity and speed on a hybrid array I could find.

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

The old solution was slow, expensive, and support stopped resolving my issues.

What other advice do I have?

They gave me a free proof of concept which was very customer friendly. I advise you reach out and request to try it before you buy it and see if you don't fall in love… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I researched Nimble, DataON, Nutanix, Compellent, Simplivity, VSAN, and Tintri. My second choice was between Compellent and Nimble.

What is most valuable?

Backdating: This is Reduxio’s local every second backup technology. It is always-on and monitored 24/7, so it frees up a lot of time that I used to spend babysitting… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I never have to think about backups again. A few months after implementing Reduxio, I got a request to restore some data related to a former employee. I panicked when I… more»

What needs improvement?

I would love an iPhone app to monitor my system from outside the firewall. I am also looking forward to the latest vCenter plugin with more granular reporting and… more»

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

It is just like EqualLogic. You can’t get easier than this! All of their new features that were released following our purchase are free of charge. For example, we are… more»

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

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

You won’t be disappointed with this ransomware killer.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We spent a long-time evaluating other solutions from Dell, EMC, Tintri, PURE, and HPE. We tested Tintri and Dell Unity. After bringing in Reduxio for an evaluation, we… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to have granular backups of your data, or be able to go back in time, the NoRestore feature. They're a company that's really on the cutting edge in the data… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of deployment and also data storage, the deduplication ability of it has reduced that footprint. It allows me as a systems administrator to have better control… 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»

What is most valuable?

Of course, the big feature, backdating of datastores right down to the second without any need for proactively taking snapshots, is incredibly valuable - and it works as advertised. If there is an emergency or just if you're experimenting, it only takes a scant few quick clicks to roll a datastore back to a specific time of your choosing, either branching that moment off into a new deduplicated… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are enjoying a quantum leap in speed, reliability, and available space with this system. Our servers run better, we are not constantly squeezing for space, and there is no need to mess around with configuration to keep it running, struggling with constant and uncooperative updates, or buy/build notification systems for hardware failures. The Reduxio unit just does its job and does it well; we… more»

What needs improvement?

I can always imagine possible improvements to anything I use, and despite my gushing praise I am capable of coming up with a few minor ideas. I would love to see deeper integration with VMware vSphere/vCenter. Right now, I can edit existing Reduxio datastore sizes in the vSphere web client. Provisioning new datastores that way would be nice. I do not know if it is possible, but making the process… more»

What is most valuable?

The TimeOS support and I/O performance. For instance, recovery of data from any point in time, and the speed of the unit, are incredible compared to other devices we… 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»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

EMC VNXe, HPE MSA 2040, Nutanix, Nimble, Tegile.
