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.”

Version 4.8 of ExaGrid’s software provides:

  • An 800TB backup capacity: Up to 25 ExaGrid appliances can be mixed and matched in any combination in a single scale-out GRID. With 10 various-sized appliance models from which to choose, IT organizations can buy what they need, as they need it. ExaGrid’s largest configuration is 25 EX32000E appliances in a single GRID for a maximum full backup capacity of 800TB and an ingest rate of 187.5TB per hour.
  • Bandwidth throttle: Replication between ExaGrid sites across a wide area network (WAN) can be scheduled for a specific day and a bandwidth usage limit can be set for each scheduled period. The combination of scheduling flexibility and bandwidth throttling allows for the maximum efficiency of WAN bandwidth used for replication.
  • WAN encryption: Data can be encrypted during replication between ExaGrid sites. Encryption occurs on the sending ExaGrid site, is encrypted as it traverses the WAN, and is decrypted at the target ExaGrid site. This eliminates the need for a virtual private network (VPN) to perform encryption across the WAN. ExaGrid also offers encryption at rest for data stored on ExaGrid systems.

The version 4.8 software is available at no charge to all customers who have a valid maintenance and support agreement.
