It has been a busy 2015 for Reduxio. We launched our next generation enterprise storage solution, the Reduxio HX 550 Flash Hybrid storage system. We were named “Best of Show, Virtualization and Cloud Infrastructure” at VMWorld. We traveled a lot – visiting the Truth in Storage event in San Diego, California, The New England VTUG Fall Forward meeting near Boston, Massachusetts and the Storage Decisions conference in New York City, New York, among other events.
The proliferation of digital services, mobile devices and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are causing today’s data centers to overflow with information, applications and databases. Traditional disk and tape data storage technologies are simply not equipped to deal with this deluge of data, or meet the speed, capacity and recovery demands that today’s digital economy places on the modern datacenter.
If you take a long, measured look across the data storage industry you will find there has not been any fundamental innovation in feature capability in the last 20 years. The last significant innovation in this space was snapshots and snap-based replication which NetApp made popular. Since then, however, it has been slow, expected changes that best characterizes the development of the storage industry.
