HYCU-X Piggybacks on Existing HCI Platforms to Put Itself in the Scale-out Backup Conversation

Vendors are finding multiple ways to enter the scale-out hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) backup conversation. Some acquire other companies such as StorageCraft did in early 2017 with its acquisition of ExaBlox. Others build their own such as Cohesity and Commvault did. Yet among these many iterations of scale-out, HCI-based backup systems, HYCU’s decision to piggyback its new HYCU-X on top of existing HCI offerings, starting with Nutanix’s AHV HCI Platform, represents one of the better and more insightful ways to deliver backup using a scale-out architecture.
