Reduxio HX550 Review

The Reduxio HX550 is a dual controller hybrid storage array within a 2U chassis. The system frontends sixteen 7.2k 2TB hard drives with eight 800GB SSDs to create a 38.4TB raw data pool in each system. Stopping there makes the HX550 sound just about like any other midrange hybrid offering that's trying to appeal to the needs of the SMB and enterprise markets. However, Reduxio is much more, in that it offers several unique twists that are uncommon or even entirely novel in this class of storage. Primary amongst these is Reduxio's "raison d'être," which is that data should be protected at all times. Reduxio executes on this mission by offering BackDating, which offers one second RTO and RPO, effectively letting an organization roll back at second granularity at any time. Reduxio customers have found this methodology to be effective at dealing with all sorts of data loss or access issues, especially in the face of the burgeoning issue of ransomware.
