Marlborough, Mass., December 3, 2020 – ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that the company was honored with “Enterprise Backup Hardware Vendor of the Year” and “Storage Performance Optimisation Company of the Year” at the annual Storage Awards, “The Storries,” announced virtually on November 26, 2020. Winners are determined by public vote, so receipt of these awards is especially meaningful as it reflects the voices of ExaGrid’s customers and partners, and further validates ExaGrid’s differentiated product architecture and outstanding customer support. This year’s win adds to ExaGrid’s previous wins at “The Storries” including winning “Enterprise Backup Hardware Product of the Year” in 2019, and “Enterprise Backup Storage Vendor of the Year” in 2018.
ExaGrid’s disk-cache Landing Zone for backup and restore performance is tiered to a long-term retention repository for cost efficiencies as well as a scale-out storage architecture that scales as data grows. ExaGrid offers the best of both worlds by pairing the fastest backup and restore performance with the lowest cost long-term retention storage.
“We are thrilled to win two awards this year, as just being nominated in seven categories alongside leaders in the industry has been quite an honor,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “ExaGrid continues to innovate and build out product features that resolve the issues that customers often face with backup storage. This year, we released the Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery Feature in our software version 6.0, becoming the only solution to offer a delayed delete ransomware recovery strategy from backup storage. The new software version also added improvements to the user interface and enhanced deduplication and replication performance with different backup applications. ExaGrid is determined to change the economics of backup by eliminating product obsolescence and expensive forklift upgrades, and ensuring our system is cost-effective up front with savings from deduplication without impact on performance, and cost-effective over time as data grows with our scale-out architecture. Many thanks to everyone who voted for us to win these awards, we are truly grateful,” said Andrews.
