London, June 25 2012 – ExaGrid® Systems, Inc. (www.exagrid.com), the leader in cost-effective, scalable disk-based backup solutions with data deduplication, today announced it has signed Paramount Computer Systems (PCS) the leading regional provider of products and services for securing the Information Assets of Enterprises in the Middle East.

“The EMEA market has long been a successful area which underpins our entire global growth strategy and with Paramount we have an excellent partner to continue to drive capturing market share from our competitors,” said Bill Hobbib, vice president of marketing at ExaGrid. “ At ExaGrid we look for resellers that share our vision to provide the fastest, most scalable disk backup with deduplication solution, enabling customers to permanently shorten their backup window and permanently protect their IT budget as data grows.”

Premchand Kurup, CEO of Paramount commented, “What we look for in a vendor is a real partnership and proposition that delivers significant value for our customers and that’s what we’ve found in ExaGrid. We are working very closely with them and their cutting edge technology that permanently shortens and protects the backup window as data grows. This new partnership will allow us to offer the Arabian Gulf Region a complete end-to-end data backup & recovery solution.”

Benefits of Deploying ExaGrid Disk Backup with Deduplication
ExaGrid backup systems are designed to meet the needs of companies backing up between 1TB and 130TB of data in a single system. ExaGrid’s unique performance-based GRID architecture is the only disk backup approach with deduplication that scales with full servers, adding both compute power and capacity, resulting in the shortest backup window that does not expand as data grows, all while eliminating forklift upgrades and product obsolescence.

Only ExaGrid permanently shortens backup windows, permanently protects budgets, and permanently provides reliable high-quality performance. ExaGrid’s unique approach to disk-based backup delivers all the performance, reliability and security benefits of backing up to disk, at a cost that rivals the price of tape.

ExaGrid customers achieve the fastest backup times because: data is written directly to disk; data deduplication is performed post-process after the data is stored; and most importantly ExaGrid adds full servers which include processor, memory, disk and bandwidth versus just adding disk. This unique approach ensures that the backup window does not re-explode as it would with other approaches. In addition, ExaGrid’s GRID scalability enables organizations to store up to a 130TB full backup plus retention. Performance scales with data growth since processing power, memory and bandwidth are added along with storage capacity, and data loads are automatically balanced across all servers.
