Israel’s Reduxio Systems, which declares itself to be the next-generation hyper-efficient hybrid storage innovator, has closed a $15 million Series B round of funding.
The company said that the new funding will allow it to accelerate product development and will support its go-to-market plan. In conjunction with this investment, Seagate will obtain a seat on the Reduxio Board of Directors.
Reduxio asserts that its new storage operating system implements active tiering across multiple tiers, NoDup in-line deduplication and compression, and BackDating for infinite data recovery. Its multi-tier infinite storage systems are specifically designed for today’s storage environments focusing on cloud, virtualization and structured data sets.
