Capacity consumption is on every administrator’s mind. The SCSI UNMAP operation, also known as TRIM, enables file systems to instruct block storage systems to free up blocks that are no longer being used. Reduxio TimeOS v3.4.1 has added support for SCSI UNMAP. This document reviews the SCSI UNMAP support and its implications on VMware, Microsoft Windows Server, and Linux.
Reduxio HX Series can be integrated with Ceph to deliver a cost-effective disaster recovery and data protection solution by combining NoRestore – Reduxio’s unique, built-in, instant data protection technology, and Ceph scalable storage with iSCSI support.
The Microsoft Exchange messaging platform is one of many applications that can be installed in a virtualized environment. The Reduxio StorApp for VMware vSphere gives you the ability to recover Exchange mailbox databases from any second in the past. In addition, you can create application-consistent VM snapshots based on a pre-defined schedule, and Exchange logs can be automatically removed as required.
Today, managing the life cycle of application data requires multiple tools and tiers of storage, resulting in management and operational complexity, inefficient data transfer across storage tiers, and underutilized storage silos. This complexity leads to higher infrastructure and operational costs. Reduxio’s converged primary and secondary data management platform provides end to end management of application data, simplifying storage infrastructure and optimizing costs.
This solution guide describes the benefits that Reduxio HX Series provides for customers who are planning or have already decided, to implement VMware Horizon View. It provides a description of the challenges that VDI administrators face, and how Reduxio HX Series would overcome those challenges. It also provides a brief overview of the VMware Horizon View architecture and concepts.
Reduxio is a Microsoft Storage Partner, and Reduxio TimeOS™ is certified for Windows Server 2012.

Software Initiator and Microsoft MPIO (Multipath I/O). The settings required for proper operations are
described in this document.
When using BackDating™, the protection of SQL Server databases that span multiple volumes is made simple. There is no need for complicated consistency group planning since all volumes are always consistent. A one-second RPO is available from crash-consistent data and allows the recovery of the SQLServer database to any second in time using clone or revert.
Recovery of an Oracle database can be done to any second in time from the BackDating history using clone or revert. You should restore all volumes used by the Oracle instance to the same second in time. Recovery time is much shorter because no data is being copied, and there is no need to roll forward Oracle’s redo logs.
The Reduxio® HX Series flash storage system is designed as an HA (High Availability) pair to provide hardware redundancy that is required for non-disruptive operations and fault tolerance. It provides each storage controller in the pair the software functionality to perform seamless takeovers, to maintain required performance, to prevent data loss, and to maintain service availability at all times.
As businesses are constantly reviewing their cloud strategy, looking for smarter, more efficient ways to run their IT operations, local and regional value-added resellers often stand up to answer these challenges by offering managed IT services. However, fierce competition with other providers and public cloud services is pushing operators to look for new ways to optimize and innovate their services.
