Data management and protection technology developer Reduxio on Thursday unveiled the latest version of its software targeted at integrated management of both primary and secondary storage.
That software, Reduxio V3.0, is aimed at simplifying customers storage infrastructures by unifying both primary and secondary storage in a single architecture, said Mike Grandinetti, chief marketing and strategy officer for the San Francisco-based company.
Such a move will take out much of the complexity related to managing and protecting data, Grandinetti told CRN.
"We're now at a point where more data was produced in the last 18 months than in all of prior history before that," he said. "So we're bringing out a unified storage platform that significantly simplifies storage, ad eliminates a lot of redundancy in management."
Grandinetti said, "unified management" in the Reduxio sense does not refer to SAN and NAS, but primary and secondary storage.
Customers today may be deploying up to eight different systems to protect data to provide such services as backups, synchronous replication, recovery, mirroring, cloning, and copy data management, Grandinetti said.
"We're bringing these together with a single system and a single user interface with iPhone-like simplicity," he said.
Reduxio V3.0 is available as an appliance which includes hardware from Seagate, which is an investor in Reduxio, Grandinetti said. It brings two new critical capabilities to partners and customers, he said.
The first is built-in copy data management which replaces the need for dedicated backup appliances like Dell EMC's Data Domain or NetApp's AltaVault, he said.
"VARs find the price-performance management of a stand-alone solution doesn't make economic sense," he said. "We make the solution a part of the appliance."
