Marlborough, Mass., October 1, 2020 – ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that it has been nominated in seven categories for the 17th annual Storage Awards. ExaGrid has become a finalist for Contribution to the Storage Industry, Hyper-convergence Vendor of the Year, Enterprise Backup Hardware Company of the Year, Storage Innovators of the Year, Storage Performance Optimisation Company of the Year, Storage Product of the Year, and Storage Company of the Year. Voting to determine the winner in each category is underway now and closes on November 12. Winners of this year’s awards will be announced on November 26, 2020.
While ExaGrid has been recognized in five award categories as a company, its product line, the EX Series of Tiered Backup Storage appliances, is also nominated in the Storage Product of the Year category, and this year is especially unique as ExaGrid’s Vice President of International Systems Engineering, Graham Woods, is also up for the Contribution to the Storage Industry awards. Graham has been with ExaGrid for 12 years and has worked in the storage sector for over two decades. “It’s quite an honor to receive a personal nomination for these prestigious industry awards,” he said. “Congratulations to all the individuals who are also up for this award, all are very deserving for their valuable work in our field.”
ExaGrid continues to innovate and build out product features that resolve the issues that customers often face with backup storage. This year, ExaGrid released new software version 6.0 that not only improves the user interface, but also improves on deduplication and replication performance with different backup applications, and most notably, includes a Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery, becoming the only solution to offer a delayed delete ransomware recovery strategy from backup storage. ExaGrid combines immutable objects, a non-network facing tier and delayed deletes to guard against ransomware backup deletion and encryption.
