ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage
- Fastest Backups
- Fastest Recoveries
- Unparalleled, Cost-effective Scale-out
- Comprehensive Security and Ransomware Recovery
Many organizations have up to hundreds or even thousands of remote and edge locations, or sites, such as sales offices, franchises, retail outlets, etc. These remote sites commonly do not have dedicated IT staff, yet the company data must be backed up on a daily or nightly basis. The data has to be stored centrally, and is often kept for weeks, months, and years, and typically requires a second offsite copy for added data protection in case of disaster
The combination of Acronis® Backup with highly efficient ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage appliances provides customers with an easy-to-manage process and cost-effective solution for remote site backup and storage. This combined solution has been tested and tuned so that both systems work together to deliver secure storage and fast recovery. Organizations using Acronis Backup can back up remote sites via Acronis agents installed at remote sites directly to an ExaGrid appliance at either the organization’s own data center or a third-party cloud service provider.
As the secondary storage backup target, ExaGrid provides innovative deduplication technologies that save on storage costs. ExaGrid’s unique Landing Zone and Adaptive Deduplication technology result in the fastest backup and restore performance at the lowest cost up front and over time with complete Acronis Backup compatibility. ExaGrid’s architecture is designed to be easily scalable, resulting in a fixed-length backup window regardless of data growth.
Acronis sets the standard for cyber protection through its innovative backup, anti-ransomware, disaster recovery, storage, and enterprise file sync and share solutions. Enhanced by its award-winning AI-based active protection technology, blockchain-based authentication and unique hybrid-cloud architecture, Acronis protects all data in any environment – including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads and applications – all at a low and predictable cost.
With ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage appliances, backups are written directly to a unique disk-cache Landing Zone to avoid inline processing and ensure the highest possible backup performance, resulting in the shortest backup window. Adaptive Deduplication performs deduplication and replication in parallel with backups while providing full system resources to the backups for the shortest backup window. Available system cycles are utilized to perform deduplication and offsite replication for an optimal recovery point at the disaster recovery site. Once complete, the onsite data is protected and immediately available in its full undeduplicated form for fast restores, VM Instant Recoveries, and tape copies while the offsite data is ready for disaster recovery.
Additionally, data can be replicated to a second-site ExaGrid system for disaster recovery. ExaGrid supports up to 16 major data centers in a group such that remote sites in specific geographies can replicate into core centers and then those centers can be cross-replicated. This approach provides cross-site disaster recovery support with efficient bandwidth utilization.
