ExaGrid’s model EX63000E appliance is a nominee in three categories. Up to 32 EX63000Es can be in a single system which provides up to a 2PB full backup with an ingest rate of 432TB/hour, which is larger and also three times faster than any other backup storage on the market.

The Tiered Backup Storage solution is designed to support a diverse group of backup applications, which gives its users the ability to utilize multiple applications and processes that can point to same backup target, the ExaGrid system. Over the past year, ExaGrid has released software upgrades that further enhance the integration with backup applications. For example, ExaGrid improved on its data deduplication for Veeam Software, included support of Veritas NetBackup Accelerator, and the included the ability to further deduplicate Commvault deduplicated data as wells as implemented the solution’s support of Windows Active Directory.

“We are thrilled to be nominated in so many categories! We continue to innovate and upgrade our Tiered Backup Storage solution. Our Version 5.2.2 update enhanced many of our product’s features, and our upcoming Version 6.0 update will add even more; including Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware recovery,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and President of ExaGrid. “We want to ensure our product provides longevity to our customers and we hope to disrupt the practice of product obsolescence and forklift upgrades that have become commonplace in the industry. ExaGrid provides significant lifetime value and investment protection that no other architecture can match.”

ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage writes directly to disk for the fastest backups, and restores directly from disk for the fastest restores and VM boots. ExaGrid then tiers the long-term retention data to a deduplicated data repository to reduce the amount of retention storage and resulting cost. In addition, ExaGrid provides a scale-out architecture where appliances are simply added as data grows. Each appliance includes processor, memory and network ports, so as data grows, all resources required are available to maintain a fixed-length backup window. This scale-out storage approach eliminates expensive forklift upgrades, and allows for mixing appliances of different sizes and models in the same scale-out system which eliminates product obsolescence while protecting IT investments up front and over time.
