DataDirect Networks (DDN)
SMB business Tegile pricing and performance is particularly well suited. BC/DR scenarios are also enhanced as they are extremely good at upgrading each side and failing over for upgrades. I don't know any situations where these would not be appropriate.

Reduxio Systems
Reduxio fit into our plans for replacing our aging EMC VNX5500. We were able to reduce our data center footprint from 50 rack units down to 8. The data dedupe or "No-Dupe" as they call it was the main reason for the reduced footprint. We also use VSphere and the API's that tie into VCenter work very well. Your able to carve out storage right from the VCenter web client. Reduxio may be less appropriate when used as a backup repository.

Cons
DataDirect Networks (DDN)
  • I would like to see every update to be able to be reached via either partial or full updates. In the past we had progressed to one level of software and then found we could not get to a later version from that level, though they did address that.

Reduxio Systems
  • Some best practice documentation available online would be nice, however their support is available to answer any questions.
  • The available amount of physical storage remaining is sort of ambiguous.
  • The marketing of No-Dup is really not a great idea.

Usability
DataDirect Networks (DDN)
It just works, and works very well. The GUI is clean and easy to understand, and the dashboard gives vital information at a glance. It also gives a very comprehensive view of what all the moving parts are doing. It is so clear and matches the view in real life that I can have a non-technical person looking at it and talking to me on the phone and we both see the same things, instantly.

Alternatives Considered
DataDirect Networks (DDN)
We used to have both Nimble and Compellant in the past, and there is no comparison with the Tegile offerings. The Tegiles outperform them in every area and are easier to use.

Reduxio Systems
We were looking for a low cost and high IO performance storage option, and considered Netapp and EMC. Reduxio, as an early stage startup, offered us a test option on their beta site. After more than a year, we got a generally available version, and after an additional 3 months, we went to production.

Reduxio Systems
  • One positive impact is the amount of electricity we're saving over the VNX5500
  • The Reduxio is much simpler to manage allowing less training time.
  • The simplicity of the UI will allow us to hire people that may not have as much experience with enterprise storage.
