ExaGrid Named SVC Awards 2015 “Product of the Year” Finalist

ExaGrid’s EX32000E Disk-Based Backup Appliance Recognized in Backup and Recovery/Archive Category

Westborough, Mass., October 13, 2015 – ExaGrid®, a leading provider of disk-based backup storage with data deduplication solutions and sole Visionary in Gartner’s 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances,” 1 today announced that its EX32000E appliance has been named a finalist for a 2015 Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Award in the “Backup and Recovery/Archive Product of the Year” category.

The ExaGrid EX32000E appliance was shortlisted as it stood out as a scalable, cost-effective disk-based backup with data deduplication solution that revolutionizes how organizations back up and protect their data. 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. ExaGrid’s system scales from a 1TB to an 800TB full backup in a single GRID.

“The SVC Awards’ finalists represent today’s most innovative technologies and technology deployments, demonstrating highly impressive real-world IT and business results, as well as fast time-to-value and ROI,” said Jason Holloway, Director of IT Publishing at Angel Business Communications, organizers of the SVC Awards. “We congratulate ExaGrid together with the additional finalists for this important accomplishment, and wish them all the best of luck during the final voting process.”

“We are honored to have been chosen by the esteemed 2015 SVC Awards judges as a finalist for this well-known and highly coveted award,” said Bill Andrews, CEO, ExaGrid. “We believe it is a reflection of the fact that the ExaGrid EX32000E truly represents a new era in backup.” He continued, “It is the only disk-based backup storage appliance that features data deduplication implemented in a way that ensures the fastest backups, restores, recoveries and tape copies; works seamlessly across physical and virtual environments; maintains a fixed backup window – even as data grows; and eliminates forklift upgrades and product obsolescence — IT staff buy what they need, as they need it.”

The SVC Awards reward the products, projects and services, as well as honor companies and teams, operating with excellence in the cloud, virtualization and storage sectors. The SVC Awards also recognize the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors alike. Voting opened on October 5 and closes on November 13: Winners will be announced at the SVC Awards Gala Ceremony on December 3 at the Royal Garden Hotel (London, UK).
