NetApp SolidFire

Solidfire is a good, multi-purpose array for iSCSI environments. Grid architecture allows incremental, linear expansion of the array both in capacity and performance. The all-flash is a very high performance, low latency platform for a lot of applications. The way the company has architected the platform allows for continual upgrades and removes the lift-and-load replacements if you stay with Solidfire in the future. The Solidfire fiber channel implementation is workable, but largely there is a checkbox. I cannot imagine any fiber channel shop is going to look at a Solidfire seriously, unless they are looking to move towards Ethernet based transport. Write intensive workloads struggle on the array. The double-helix data protection combined with the architecture can make writes more latent than expected - well into the teens and 20's of ms within the array.

Reduxio

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.

Reduxio

  • 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.

NetApp SolidFire 8.5
Based on 3 answers
When we have had problems, the response on the Solidfire side has been strong, but not perfect. As they scale and integrate into NetApp, support from regions outside of the USA are having a more difficult time diagnosing and addressing issues for complex problems. The Boulder, CO, and Raleigh, NC, support teams are both extremely strong and provide top-notch support. ActiveIQ is a great support tool both for NetApp/Solidfire and for the customer. The proactive support tickets opened have been helpful. The node-based support has been excellent - meaning when we had a DIMM fail, they sent a replacement node - no time consuming troubleshooting of internal components to fix the issue. Upgrades are handled by SF technicians, so it feels white-glove

Alternatives Considered

NetApp SolidFire

SolidFire was chosen over these other service providers because of relationships we have with the company, with our reps, and with the local Denver presence. We also are a partner, and we felt that the solution stacked up technologically very well against the competition and was more cost effective.

Reduxio

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.

Return on Investment

NetApp SolidFire

  • The ROI was quick - under 1 year
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Reduxio

  • 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.
