Symantec Backup Exec

ExaGrid Systems partners with Symantec to ensure compatibility with the latest features available in Symantec Backup Exec. As a result, customers deploying ExaGrid disk backup along with their Backup Exec software can dramatically reduce backup windows, get faster restores, and significantly ease backup management burdens. ExaGrid was the first disk-backup appliance vendor to achieve Symantec’s highest level of qualification for both basic and optimized duplication (replication) with Backup Exec via the OpenStorage Technology (OST) program.

ExaGrid’s support of Backup Exec OST allows both onsite and offsite backup data stored on the ExaGrid system to be managed from within the Backup Exec console. The backup catalog is also kept up-to-date for the replicated offsite backups. This makes it easier for users to monitor the status of their onsite and offsite backups through Backup Exec reporting, and also facilitates disaster recovery as backup data from the off-site ExaGrid system can be easily recovered directly from within the Backup Exec console. This deep level of integration provides joint ExaGrid/Backup Exec customers with a faster, more powerful, and more easily managed solution for disk backup with data deduplication.

The ExaGrid system offered significantly better price/performance than the other solutions. Some of the other solutions appeared less expensive on the surface, but when we added in ExaGrid's data de-duplication technology, which lets us use less disk space, the ExaGrid came in at approximately 25 percent the cost of competitive solutions.

The ExaGrid system is the perfect backup solution. It gave us everything we needed in one package, including data deduplication and the ability to replicate data offsite. It's extremely efficient at backing up and restoring data and it's very hands-off in terms of management and administration.

Dynamic Aviation Finds Tape Backups Just Won’t Fly Anymore

We liked the idea of the ExaGrid GRID architecture and the sizable landing pad for a full, uncompressed backup set.  I also liked the post-processing deduplication.  In my view, ExaGrid’s technology, marketing, and pricing are superior.
