More than 11,000 ExaGrid hyper-converged secondary storage for backup with deduplication systems are installed, each with tens of terabytes to petabytes of data protected.
7-Eleven Stores"One of the things we wanted out of a disk-based backup system was a 'set it and forget it' type of product. The ExaGrid has more than lived up to our expectations. Each day, we quickly check the ExaGrid to ensure that everything ran smoothly and then doublecheck the amount of available disk space, and that’s it. We're confident in the system and it's taken the hassle out of our backups."

Aeroflex Incorporated"The ExaGrid system has unburdened us from worrying about disk sprawl in our backup architectures. I hope to never buy disk again for our backup server. It's a great feeling."

American Standard Brands"The capacity at both our production site and our DR site have doubled, if not tripled, since we first installed ExaGrid, so we have added appliances over the years. Working with ExaGrid's sales and customer support teams is a major reason why we have continued to use ExaGrid for so many years."

AspenTech"One of the major selling points of using ExaGrid with Veeam is the ability to stand up a VM almost immediately with just a couple of clicks. When I need to do an instant VM restore or create a clone copy, it's amazing how easy it is."

Barneys New York"For us, one of the main strengths of the ExaGrid system is its ability to run 20 to 30 concurrent backup jobs at once. That functionality alone makes our backups run so much faster."

Bridgestone"ExaGrid's deduplication with Veeam is amazing—the deduplication packs backups up in a box and puts them in a closet, and if you ever need to retrieve that backed up data, the system goes and gets it out of that closet and brings it out to you. It's great how much retention space is made available. It's a much better system compared to what we were using before."

Concur"We've worked closely with ExaGrid on our backup infrastructure and have been extremely pleased with the product, customer support, and the company as a whole. The folks at ExaGrid go the extra mile, and we consider them to be a trusted partner."

Dot Foods"The time that we spend managing our backups has been cut considerably using the ExaGrid. Our tape library was cantankerous and didn't want to work half the time. When you only have a few tape drives and just one of them goes down, it really puts a crimp in things whereas backing up to disk, you can write hundreds of streams simultaneously."

FLIR Systems"ExaGrid gives me the reliability I need, which results in confidence in my work. I used to wake up in the morning afraid to check my email for my first two years in this role."

HCC Life Insurance Company"I love the fact that we have a dedicated support engineer. It's so convenient to be able to contact the same person each and every time we have a question about the system or about our backup processes. We don't have to explain things over and over to new people every time we call ExaGrid support."

Hitachi Consulting"Backing up to ExaGrid instead of tape saved us thousands of dollars in license and maintenance fees. We didn't need any additional licenses or maintenance to back up to disk because the ExaGrid simply looks like any other Windows server. That was a tremendous cost savings. There are many different things we can do with the ExaGrid/NetBackup combination that we couldn't do with tape. For example, we can now easily mix retention policies and be more flexible with our data than ever before."

Hologic"We compared EMC Data Domain and ExaGrid, running Veeam in parallel POCs. ExaGrid just worked better. The scale-out scalability seemed almost too good to be true, but it lived up to its hype and it was awesome!"
