Version 4.7 Adds Increased Ingest and Capacity to ExaGrid’s Scale-Out GRID Backup Storage, New Functionality for Data Center Cross-Replication, an Improved Recovery Point for Disaster Recovery and an ExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data Mover Integration through an Expanded Veeam Partnership
Westborough, Mass., August 27, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ – ExaGrid Systems, the backup appliance storage provider just named an industry Visionary in Gartner’s recent “Magic Quadrant for Deduplication Backup Target Appliances” i report, is launching version 4.7 of its software for the ExaGrid family of backup storage appliances.
The new software continues to deliver on ExaGrid’s promise of stress-free backup, allowing for 14 appliances in a single GRID and increasing ingest and capacity by more than 40 percent. In addition, version 4.7 increases the number of data centers for cross-site disaster recovery, improves the recovery point for offsite disaster recovery and supports an ExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data Mover integrated into each appliance.
“ExaGrid has been a valued partner of Veeam for several years,” said Doug Hazelman, VP of Product Strategy at Veeam. “This latest integration further enables our joint customers to leverage the benefits of Availability for the Modern Data Center™. By enabling Veeam’s data mover to be installed directly onto the ExaGrid appliance, customers will appreciate increased performance and less complexity of their availability infrastructures.”
ExaGrid is a leading disk-based backup provider with a unique landing zone for fast backups and the industry’s fastest restores, instant VM recoveries and tape copies. ExaGrid adds full server appliances into a scale-out GRID architecture, maintaining a short backup window as data grows while eliminating the need for expensive forklift upgrades.
“Most IT departments are experiencing data growth of more than 30 percent per year. As data grows, backup storage systems need to scale in order to maintain a fixed-length backup window. ExaGrid is the only solution that provides full appliances in a scale-out GRID architecture in order to maintain the fixed-length backup window,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and president at ExaGrid.
The new software will allow for:
“With all other disk-based backup solutions, the backup window grows as data grows until the front-end controller eventually, and inevitably, needs to be replaced, forcing forklift upgrades. Meanwhile, IT teams are under increased pressure to bring operations online quickly after any business continuity interruption,” said Andrews. “ExaGrid is the only provider that maintains the most recent backups in their full undeduplicated form for fast restores, instant VM boots (in seconds to minutes) and fast offsite tape copies. ExaGrid’s deduplication implementation improves backups, rather than hindering backup and restore performance.”
A Growing, Strategic Partnership
“Veeam is an incredibly important partner for us, and this is a very exciting time to be working together so closely. The new ExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data Mover is just one of many steps we hope to take with Veeam, as we both work to meet the needs of our customers,” said Andrews.
The new software will be available in September and is available at no charge to all customers who have a valid maintenance and support agreement.
