ExaGrid and Veeam Chosen for Enterprise Backup Solution
Fortuna Entertainment Group (FEG) decided to invest in an enterprise-level solution for its backup environment, choosing Veeam and ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage after research highlighted the strong partnership between the two. The combination of ExaGrid’s and Veeam’s industry-leading virtual server data protection solutions allows customers to utilize Veeam Backup & Replication in VMware, vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments on ExaGrid’s Tiered Backup Storage.
This combination provides fast backups and efficient data storage as well as replication to an offsite location for disaster recovery. Customers can use Veeam Backup & Replication’s built-in source-side deduplication in concert with ExaGrid’s disk-based backup system with Adaptive Deduplication to further shrink backups.
ExaGrid systems were installed at multiple company locations. “Our assigned ExaGrid support engineer guided us through the installation,” said Juraj Hutyra, group IT infrastructure engineer at FEG. The ExaGrid system is easy to install and use and works seamlessly with the industry’s leading backup applications so that an organization can retain its investment in its existing backup applications and processes. In addition, ExaGrid appliances can replicate to a second ExaGrid appliance at a second site or to the public cloud for DR (disaster recovery).
