Version 4.8 Expands Scale-Out GRID Capacity to an 800TB Full Backup, Adds Bandwidth Throttling and Encryption for WAN Replication to a Disaster Recovery Site
WESTBOROUGH, MA – April 21, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid, a leading provider of disk-based backup storage, today announced the availability of version 4.8 of its software for the ExaGrid family of backup storage appliances. The new release increases the number of appliances to 25 in a single scale-out GRID, which increases full backup capacity by 78 percent and adds both bandwidth throttling and encryption during replication to further enhance ExaGrid’s stress-free backup solutions.
ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture allow for faster backups, resulting in a shorter backup window, restores and VM boot speeds that are as much as ten times faster than inline deduplication appliances, and a fixed-length backup window as data grows. The overall cost is lower up front and over time as compared to the large brand vendors.
“ExaGrid’s largest system can take in a full backup that is 40 percent larger and has an ingest rate that is six times faster than the EMC Data Domain 990, at half the price,” said Bill Andrews, ExaGrid’s CEO. “We looked at data deduplication and realized that if it’s not implemented properly, it will actually slow down backups and restores, and the backup window will continuously grow with data growth. The combination of ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture fixes all the problems found in other deduplication appliances that use traditional inline, scale-up approaches. Organizations are used to buying from large vendors such as EMC, but when it comes to backup storage, the EMC solution is first-generation, using inline deduplication with a scale-up architecture. ExaGrid is the next generation.”
