Reduxio Unifies Management And Data Protection Across Primary, Secondary Storage

The second is the new NoRestore capability which provides near-zero recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO), Grandinetti said.

A disaster recovery solution can move 100s of terabytes of data from one data center to another, which can take days, he said. "With Reduxio, we use metadata so that even as data is in transit, it can be used," he said. This keeps the applications up and available."

Reduxio is just about the best vendor in the market in terms of features and functionality, said Francis Leong, co-owner of Network Consulting Services (NCS), a San Jose, Calif.-based solution provider and channel partner of Reduxio.

"It's hard to find a product where you can say, 'My user lost a file a half-hour ago but is already using it,'" Leong told CRN. "That one feature has already saved many customers' butts."

When Reduxio talks about recovering data, it's not talking about data from a day later or a week later," Leong said. "It's about recovering data before an infection started. With other vendors, you can go back an hour or a day. But with Reduxio, you can have snapshots up to once a second."

Reduxio V3.0 easily replicates data remotely to one location, then restores to a secondary location, Leong said. It also makes it easy to migrate data to a new platform, with virtual machines based on the data being migrated available for use during the migration, he said.

"I work with many small law firms, dental offices, engineering firms, and other small businesses," he said. "Reduxio works well with my smaller business customers."

Luanne Tierney, managing member at Fivesky, a New York-based solution provider and Reduxio channel partner, said customers like how Reduxio V3.0 provides flexible access to up-to-date versions of data, and about the flexibility to use the software with any vendor's hardware.

"Everybody wants simplicity," Tierney told CRN. "But everything is so complex. We work with a law enforcement agency who had Reduxio and was hit by WannaCry, but was able to get back into operation right away to the point just before the ransomware attack."

Today, it's not enough to be just a storage company, Tierney said. "Today, everyone's a security company," she said. "Reduxio is a storage company, but is able to provide recovery to the point just before an attack, and do so quickly."

Reduxio sales all come from indirect channel partners, Grandinetti said. The company is recruiting channel partners who are used to working with innovative technologies, he said.
