ExaGridâ€™s Disk Backup System with Data Deduplication Expands to 130TB GRID Capacity, Adds Encryption and Offers Lowest Total Cost of Ownership by Avoiding Product Obsolescence
WESTBOROUGH, MA, May 24, 2011 –(EON: Enhanced Online News)– ExaGridÂ® Systems, Inc. (http://www.exagrid.com), the leader in cost-effective, scalable disk-based backup solutions with data deduplication, today announced the availability of the EX13000E disk backup system with upgraded 130TB GRID software. The fastest system per TB, most space-efficient, and most cost-effective solution available on the market, the EX13000E allows customers to store a 130TB full backup plus weeks or months of retention in a single GRID-based disk-backup system with data deduplication. It also adds an optional encryption capability. Like all ExaGrid systems, the EX13000E can be seamlessly added to any existing ExaGrid solution in place with no risk of obsolescence. This allows customers to realize the lowest total cost of ownership with an ExaGrid solution by adding capacity as data grows without the need to replace existing hardware.
The highest performance 13TB appliance in the industry, ExaGridâ€™s EX13000Eâ€™s expanded backup capacity provides up to double the backup performance per TB of any other disk backup with a deduplication system. Unlike other disk backup solutions that scale by adding only disk shelves to a fixed controller and result in longer backup times as data grows, ExaGridâ€™s scalable GRID-based approach maintains fast backup performance even as data increases. This GRID-based approach allows ExaGrid customers to confidently purchase a system knowing it will easily expand to accommodate future data growth while avoiding common technology end-of-life issues.
This release follows recent news of ExaGridâ€™s â€œFast and Reliable Backupâ€ price-matching program, where ExaGrid will match the quoted price of a new tape library in the vast majority of situations with an ExaGrid disk backup with deduplication system equipped to handle the same size backups. Only ExaGridâ€™s disk backup with deduplication system addresses the economics of backup for IT users, offering both a price matched to the cost of a new tape library and a model for adding capacity as data grows that avoids obsolescence. Customers can work with any authorized ExaGrid reseller to see if ExaGrid can match the price of a new tape library plus tapes and maintenance.
â€œExaGridâ€™s backup solution lets customers make smart decisions and only purchase what they need up front, then grow their existing system over time–without expanding their backup windows and without fear that the system will be obsolete in the next year,â€ said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. â€œWe all know what itâ€™s like to buy a smartphone or consumer electronics product, only to learn that itâ€™s obsoleted within months. With ExaGrid, thatâ€™s never an issue because newer systems like the EX13000E integrate seamlessly in our GRID architecture with previous generation ExaGrid appliances, regardless of size. Having 8 models of varying sizes from 1TB to 13TB that can be mixed and matched in a GRID really creates a flexible, cost-effective purchasing experience that customers and partners prefer.â€
The new EX13000E system includes the following important features and customer benefits:
ExaGridâ€™s disk backup system with data deduplication supports the industryâ€™s leading backup applications and utilities, including CA ARCserve, CommVault Simpana, HP Data Protector, Linux/Unix File System Data Dumps, Microsoft SQL dump, Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), EMC NetWorker, Symantec Backup Exec, Symantec NetBackup, Veeam Backup & Replication, Quest vRanger and VMware Backup.
â€œOur groundbreaking EX13000E and 130TB GRID addresses the requirement we constantly hear from customers who need to efficiently back-up data today and also scale in a cost-effective manner to meet future needs,â€ said Marc Crespi, vice president of Product Management, ExaGrid Systems, Inc. â€œWith ExaGridâ€™s unique approach, customers can solve the traditional pain-points of backupâ€”faster, more reliable backups, and better offsite disaster recoveryâ€”while also now solving the backup economics problem, by buying only what they require up-front and growing the system as their data grows. There is never the cost or disruption of having to do a forklift upgrade in the future.â€
