Westborough, MA — July 3, 2012 — ExaGrid® Systems, Inc., the leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with data deduplication, today announced that an increasing number of companies are leveraging ExaGrid’s disk-based backup with deduplication systems and Veeam Software’s virtual server data protection solutions to enable faster backups, instant virtual machine (VM) restores, more efficient data storage and offsite replication.
IT departments are challenged with data growth, longer retention periods, and the need to recover quickly when systems fail. This coupled with a proliferation in virtualized servers means there is a greater need for IT departments to have better backup and disaster recovery for VMs.
Veeam Backup & Replication provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. The ExaGrid and Veeam partnership offers a cost-effective disk-based backup solution maximizing data reduction, accelerating recovery times and offering scalability to handle data growth without costly forklift upgrades.
Joint customers of ExaGrid and Veeam’s industry-leading VMware data protection solutions can target their Veeam-based virtual machine backups to the ExaGrid appliance. Unlike competing disk backup appliances which only maintain a deduplicated copy of data and can take hours to reassemble or “rehydrate” the backup data, ExaGrid’s high speed landing zone maintains a full copy of the latest Veeam backups in their original formats. This means that users can instantly recover and run a VM from the ExaGrid system in case the primary VM is unavailable.
Portland, OR-based Hoffman Construction Co., one of the largest general contractors in the U.S. with an annual volume of more than $1 billion, has leveraged the ExaGrid/Veeam integration to maximize its data reduction and achieve fast, reliable backups and restores.
The combination of ExaGrid and Veeam is also enabling faster backups and more efficient data storage for a number of other large companies, including:
