Collaboration Incents and Rewards Solution Selling of Integrated Virtualized
Backup Storage System, Increases Margin to Channel
Westborough, Mass., April 20, 2016 – ExaGrid, a leading provider of disk-based backup storage with data deduplication solutions, today announced that it has been added to the Veeam® Alliance Attach Program, which encourages solution selling of ExaGrid’s and Veeam’s complementary technologies through the reseller channel. Veeam® Software is the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™. The program offers an additional discount to Gold-and Platinum-level resellers when Veeam Backup & Replication™ or Veeam Availability Suite™ and an ExaGrid backup storage system are sold together as an integrated solution.
Veeam and ExaGrid are dedicated to the reseller channel and collaborate with their resellers on end-to-end customized virtualized solutions for backup and backup storage. In addition to the strong registration programs that each company offers to qualified resellers, the Veeam Alliance Attach Program provides additional reseller margin for each registered opportunity.
“Veeam and ExaGrid have a longstanding and continuously expanding partnership dating back to 2010,” said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. “ExaGrid has always viewed Veeam as a visionary that is ahead of the curve. We’ve seen Veeam quickly become a dominant player in the availability market and are thrilled to further strengthen our partnership by making the sale of our joint solution more lucrative for our mutual resellers.”
Designed specifically to enable availability, Veeam provides fast VM backups and VM boots in seconds to minutes. ExaGrid’s unique landing zone keeps the most recent Veeam backups in their native, undeduplicated form to deliver on Veeam’s value proposition of helping organizations meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. Long-term retention data is stored in deduplicated form, and as data grows, ExaGrid’s unique scale-out architecture keeps the backup window fixed in length by adding compute with capacity.
ExaGrid is the only backup storage system that has Veeam’s data mover integrated, which – when compared to straight disk – improves backups by 30% and performs synthetic full backups up to six times faster. When compared to inline data deduplication appliances, ExaGrid provides three times the ingest performance and five to ten times the restore performance because ExaGrid avoids compute-intensive deduplication during the backup window as well as the time-consuming rehydration of data when restoring or booting a VM.
Organizations come to us because we are the only company that implemented deduplication in a way that fixed all the challenges of backup storage. ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture provides the fastest backup — resulting in the shortest fixed backup window, the fastest local restores, fastest offsite tape copies and instant VM recoveries while permanently fixing the backup window length, all with reduced cost up front and over time.
