Disk-Based Backup Appliance Recognized in Backup and Recovery/Archive Category
Westborough, Mass., October 4, 2016 – ExaGrid, a leading provider of disk-based backup storage with data deduplication solutions, today announced that its EX40000E appliance has been named a finalist for a 2016 Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Award in the “Backup and Recovery/Archive Product of the Year” category.
The ExaGrid EX40000E appliance was shortlisted as it stood out as a scalable, cost-effective disk-based backup with data deduplication solution that revolutionizes how organizations back up and protect data. ExaGrid appliances have been architected from the ground up specifically for backup to address today’s demanding backup requirements and are optimized for superior backup and recovery performance.
“The SVC Awards’ finalists represent today’s most innovative technologies and technology deployments, demonstrating highly impressive real-world IT and business results, as well as fast time-to-value and ROI,” said Jason Holloway, Director of IT Publishing at Angel Business Communications, organizers of the SVC Awards. “We congratulate ExaGrid together with all of the finalists on this important accomplishment, and wish all of them the best of luck during the final voting process.”
ExaGrid’s EX40000E is the largest in the company’s product line and scales from a 40TB full backup up to a 1PB full backup by combining 25 EX40000Es in a scale-out GRID. The ingest rate of a full GRID is 200TB/hr., which is 3 times the ingest performance of the EMC Data Domain 9500 with DD Boost. ExaGrid’s unique landing zone not only allows for the fastest backups but also for the fastest restores and VM boots as ExaGrid maintains the most recent backup in its full undeduplicated form. ExaGrid is the only vendor that adds compute with capacity versus just adding disk shelves. This scale-out approach allows for performance to be added along with capacity growth, which provides for a fixed-length backup window as data grows.
“We are honored to have been chosen by the esteemed 2016 SVC Awards judges as a finalist for this award,” said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. “We believe it reflects ExaGrid’s position as the only backup storage appliance that features data deduplication implemented in a way that ensures the fastest backups, restores, recoveries and tape copies; works seamlessly across physical and virtual environments; maintains a backup window that’s fixed in length and doesn’t expand as data grows; and eliminates forklift upgrades and product obsolescence — IT staff buy what they need, as they need it.”
The SVC Awards recognize the products, projects and services, as well as honor companies and teams, operating with excellence in the cloud, virtualization, and storage sectors. The SVC Awards also recognize the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors alike. Voting opened on October 3 and closes on November 11: http://www.svcawards.com/voting.php. Winners will be announced at the SVC Awards Gala Ceremony on December 1 at the Royal Garden Hotel (London, UK).
