Barnstable Police Department deployed the Reduxio HX550 to replace their old traditional iSCSI SAN array, and Craig Hurwitz, IT Manager, was kind enough to share their experience with our product. Here are some of our favorite highlights of what was achieved:

  • Recover from attacks in 5 Minutes - Revert affected data to any time in the past in one step using BackDating™.
  • 9X faster VDI boot times - From 3 min to 20 sec.
  • Average application latency consistently low - Flash-first architecture and deduped cache provides consistent low latency.
