Westborough, Mass., Aug. 21, 2013 – Exponential data growth and exploding backup windows are raising the stakes on backup solution selection. Based on a superior architecture and value, ExaGrid Systems, Inc. tops the market in Info-Tech Research Group’s comprehensive assessment, Vendor Landscape: Disk Backup, an independent and unbiased review of solutions and vendors.

The report states: “These aren’t just a bunch of disks; look closely at differentiating features. ExaGrid has an innovative architecture that solves many of the scalability and recoverability issues that many organizations are facing right now. Any organization that can consider backup to disk over Ethernet should have a look at ExaGrid.”

By focusing on what matters to IT departments — reliability, ease of use, scalability and support — and solving the backup problem rather than providing a temporary fix, ExaGrid is ranked as a ‘Champion’ vendor in the report. Once again, ExaGrid has received this distinction, moving steadily up the ‘leading product’ category, and outperforming all its competition.

“When our solution is put to the test and evaluated, IT teams choose us 70 percent of the time. That’s because we provide a real and enduring answer to their problems,”said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. “Data will continue to grow at untenable rates, and backup windows will continue to shrink. Bottom line, we have the only product on the market that won’t eventually require a massive forklift upgrade.”

Earning 99 points out of a possible 100 on Info-Tech’s Value Index, ExaGrid is praised for its scale-out architecture, which enables simultaneous scaling of both performance and capacity and eliminates the need for any upgrades.

According to the Info-Tech analysts, ExaGrid’s back up speeds, due to its patented zone deduplication process, allows backups to write at disk speed, with no slowdowns– a significant advantage when compared to other backup applications. In addition ExaGrid is the only solution that maintains most recent backups in a landing zone to allow for the fastest restores.
