The ExaGrid system is a cost effective and scalable disk backup solution that works with your existing backup application. ExaGrid combines high quality SATA drives, compression and byte-level data deduplication for fast and reliable backups and restores.
ExaGrid's innovative approach minimizes the amount of data to be stored by providing standard data compression for the most recent back ups, along with byte level data deduplication for all previous backups. ExaGrid's post-process deduplication technology stores changes from backup to backup instead of storing full file copies. This unique approach reduces the disk space required by at least 10, and up to 50 to 1, delivering unparalleled performance for the fastest backups and restores, all in a solution that costs the same as a new tape library.
ExaGrid's byte-level data deduplication technology stores changes from backup to backup instead of storing full file copies. This unique approach reduces the disk space required for backup by a range of 10 to 50:1, delivers best-in-class scalability and unparalleled cost savings.
Using ExaGrid's disk backup solution instead of tape can reduce an organization's backup window by 30% to 80%. For example, a typical 12-hour backup window can be decreased to as little as four hours. ExaGrid increases the speed and reliability of your data backups and also provides faster and more reliable data back up and recovery. For off-site long term retention or disaster recovery, an optional second site system can be deployed at another location to supplement or eliminate offsite tapes with a live disk-data repository, providing fast recovery in the event of a disaster. ExaGrid is extremely cost effective as a second site because the byte-level data deduplication technology only moves changes, requiring minimal WAN bandwidth. The costs associated with tape handling, shipment, and storage are significantly reduced or eliminated.
