Marlborough, Mass., May 14, 2019 – ExaGrid®, a leading provider of intelligent hyperconverged storage for backup, today announced that its model EX63000E appliance has been voted “Hardware Product of the Year” at the annual Network Computing award ceremony held in London on May 2. Additionally, the same appliance was honored as a runner up in the “Product of the Year” category. Winners are determined by public vote, so receipt of this award is especially important; it heralds the collective voices of ExaGrid’s customers and partners, and further validates the excellence of ExaGrid’s differentiated product architecture and superior customer service model.
ExaGrid’s model EX63000E backup storage appliance with data deduplication provides the largest scale-out system and offers up to a 2PB full backup with an ingest rate of 432TB/hr., which is three times faster than any other backup storage on the market. Leveraging the strength of its scale-out architecture, up to 32 EX63000E appliances can be combined in a single scale-out system, allowing for a 2PB full backup. The EX63000E has a maximum ingest rate of 13.5TB/hr. per appliance, so with 32 EX63000Es in a single system, the maximum ingest rate is 432TB/hr., which is three times the ingest performance of the Dell EMC Data Domain 9800 with DD Boost. ExaGrid’s scalability allows customers to expand their systems over time, easily adding what they need as they need it. In addition, appliances of any size or age can be mixed and matched in a single system, and since ExaGrid does not “end of life” products, future customer support and maintenance is guaranteed.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Network Computing, as well as our customers and partners,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and President of ExaGrid. “For many organizations, choosing the right storage infrastructure can mean the difference between meeting RPOs and RTOs or suffering from disruptive missed backup windows, slow recoveries, and massive storage cost overages. ExaGrid offers the most cost-effective method of delivering fast, scalable backup, recovery, and replication.”
With ExaGrid disk-based backup appliances, backups are written directly to a unique disk Landing Zone to avoid inline processing and ensure the highest possible backup performance, resulting in the shortest backup window. Adaptive deduplication performs deduplication and replication in parallel with backups while providing full system resources to the backups for the shortest backup window. Available system cycles are utilized to perform deduplication and offsite replication for an optimal recovery point at the disaster recovery site. Once complete, the onsite data is protected and immediately available in its full undeduplicated form for fast restores, VM Instant Recoveries, and tape copies while the offsite data is ready for disaster recovery.
ExaGrid provides intelligent hyperconverged storage for backup with data deduplication, a unique landing zone, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s landing zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. Its scale-out architecture includes full appliances in a scale-out system and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades.
