ExaGrid Disk-Based Backup Storage Appliance Named Computer Technology Review 2015 MVP Award Winner

Recognized as First Mover in Second Generation of Disk-based Backup Storage with Data Deduplication Delivering Scalable, Cost-Effective Solutions that Revolutionize How Organizations Back Up and Protect Data

Westborough, Mass., July 21, 2015 – ExaGrid®, the leading provider of disk-based backup storage, today announced its ExaGrid disk-based backup appliance has received a Computer Technology Review Most Valuable Product (MVP) 2015 Award. Comprehensively reviewed by the Computer Technology Review (CTR) editorial team across judging criteria that included product innovation, functionality, and affordability, the ExaGrid appliance stood out as a scalable, cost-effective disk-based backup with data deduplication solution that revolutionizes how organizations back up and protect their data. Moreover, unlike traditional backup storage appliances that use inline data deduplication with a scale-up architecture, the ExaGrid appliance represents the second generation of disk-based backup, specifically architected from the ground up to meet today’s very specific backup requirements – its unique landing zone with scale-out architecture is optimized for superior backup performance, as well as restore performance, scalability and price.

“After a meticulous review, we have identified an elite group of innovative technology solutions that represent the standout leaders in their respective categories – solutions which we think should be at the top of every IT professional’s evaluation shortlist,” said Kim Kay, Associate Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, WestWorldWide, LLC, publishers of Computer Technology Review and IT Security Journal. “We congratulate ExaGrid as a 2015 CTR MVP Award winner.”

“As CTR reinforced in its ExaGrid MVP Award winner description, a shift is taking place in the market as customers, resellers, industry analysts and pundits more fully understand backup and its challenges – specifically, the difference between traditional inline, scale-up architecture versus second generation landing zone with scale-out architecture (most recent backups in full form ready to restore and full appliances in a scale-out GRID),” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO, ExaGrid. “As today’s leader in scale-out backup storage, ExaGrid offers key backup capabilities, restore performance, and a price-point that absolutely no competitor can touch – certainly not any offering first-generation scale-up technology.” He concluded, “We are honored by this tremendous recognition.”
