Two weeks ago, Forrester Research published the report, “3 Vendors Disrupting the Secondary Storage and Data Protection Space”. I wrote this blog post explaining why Forrester came to conclude that Reduxio was deserving of this distinction.
In the mid to late 2000, I worked at a small startup that offered a block-level backup and restore solution. It was back in the days when HW snapshots were only available on high-end storage arrays (most customers still used DAS, or mid/low-end SAN). At that time, Microsoft DPM was also a new technology that had just come out and so we were using software snapshots and Copy-On-Write technology to create the point-in-time backups.
