Virtualization Infrastructure
Reduce cost of virtualized infrastructure with flash storage


Experience flash performance for your virtualized infrastructure at disk-level cost.

Get ultimate data recoverability and accelerate test and development for server and desktop virtualization environments:

Flash is used in the most financially sound way – as a real tier, and just for the blocks that need its performance.

Solution for VMware vSphere:

Reduce cost of virtualized infrastructure with Flash Hybrid Storage Instantaneously recover datastores and VMs back to any seconds

Key Benefits

  • Recover datastores and VMs to any second in the past
  • Flash performance at disk-based pricing
  • Consolidate virtual and physical workloads in a single high capacity system
  • Reduce VM footprint using unique in-line, in-memory deduplication and compression

Reduxio's flash hybrid storage solutions based on the TimeOS storage operating system, redefine data recoverability and storage efficiency for VMware vSphere environments. The TimeOS was designed from the ground up to address the current storage challenges by leveraging the latest advances in processing, networking and media technologies.

Using a unique capability called BackDating, the Reduxio solution for VMware enables vSphere administrators to recover VMs or entire datastores to any second in the past, without upfront planning or scheduling. Entire VM farms can be cloned without data copy for testing purposes.

The Reduxio HX550

The HX550 flash hybrid storage array accelerates VM performance by serving the most active blocks right from RAM and SSD. All data is stored deduped and compressed format, enabling entire VM farms to fit in.

vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI)

Reduxio storage supports the VAAI primitives, and provides rapid VM provisioning, cloning and migration.

Reduxio Storage Manager for VMware vSphere (RSMV)

A storage management console for vSphere Web Client that provides simplified provisioning, capacity and savings monitoring and instant recovery of virtual environments to any precise second in the past.

The Challenge

Virtualization once served only a portion of the customer's environment. Today, it is the data center's core platform for nearly all use cases-form virtual desktop to the most mission critical applications. Customers are finding that virtualization improves the availability, manageability and agility of their IT systems.

However, there are major gaps between today's storage requirements and existing solutions:

  • Snapshots are no longer sufficient - Snapshot-based technologies, introduced more than two decades ago, are outdated when it comes to the protection of virtualized environments. Snapshots only provide a limited number of recovery points, leaving VMs at risk most of the time. Managing snapshot schedules and consistency groups across a large environment is impractical, requiring complex hierarchies of thousands of snapshots.
  • IOPS density - Consolidating many applications onto a single virtual platform creates a storage bottleneck for legacy systems as resulting workload is highly random.
  • Flash is too expensive - Flash answers the performance challenge, however it is too expensive to be deployed for entire virtual environments - is it even possible to decide which data should go to flash and which shouldn't?
  • Storage Islands - Systems designed specifically to support virtualized environments do not provide the flexibility fo consolidating virtual servers and performance applications onto a single platform.
  • Too many copies of data - Data is copied again and again - virtual machine clones, application copies etc. Storing such a vast number of copies is unmanageable from both financial and administrative aspects.

The Solution: Reduxio Flash Hybrid Storage

  • Recover VMs to Any Second in the Past - BackDating allows you to recover individual VMs or complete datastores to any second in the past without any planning or configuration. A VM has crashed? No problem, bring it back to the second before the problem occurred.
  • Recover Complex Applications - Recover databases and entire applications stored across multiple volumes without the need to plan and configure consistency groups.
  • Flash for Every Application - You no longer have to choose where to use flash. Reduxio's Flash Hybrid storage delivers flash-based low latency application performance exactly where you need it and lots of capacity for the rest.
  • Single Copy of VMs - Thousands of VMs could be stored in no more than a 50-100 gigabytes, leaving most of the space for actula data. Hot blocks are cached in memory in deduped and compressed format, so VMs actually boot from RAM, dramatically accelerating VM boot times.
  • Maximum Savings with Dedupe & Compression - Maximum capacity savings using both technologies for all enterprise environments and workloads.
  • Not just for VMs - Reduxio's architecture is fully optimized for VMware vSphere, however, unlike niche VM-only products, the Reduxio system comes with enough capacity and performance to host other use cases.
