What is ExaGrid EX?

ExaGrid's disk backup with deduplication system is purpose-built for backup that leverages an architecture optimized for scalability, performance, and price. The system scales as needed by adding ExaGrid appliances, which virtualize into a GRID architecture automatically, adding capacity and processing power while acting and being managed as one unified system.

ExaGrid disk-based backup appliances include GRID computing software, which virtualizes them into a single pool of long-term capacity. Capacity load balancing of all data across servers is automatic, and multiple GRID systems can be combined for a total logical backup capacity of 16PB.

Excellent performance, scalable, easy to install, and outstanding support
Pros and Cons
  • "Both the pricing and the performance are excellent."
  • "I would like to see free disk space."

What is our primary use case?

I use ExaGrid EX as a primary backup target.

What is most valuable?

Both the pricing and the performance are excellent. I don't have any issues with this solution at all. In my use case, there is nothing I would change about it. They continue to do more with regards to usability, and then security around ransomware. That is what their recent improvements have been. They redid the code a little bit to make sure that it was more resistant towards crypto or cyberattacks, and ransomware.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see free disk space.

For how long have I used the solution?

I purchased ExaGrid EXI four years ago and have been using it ever since. Since purchasing the version, I have not upgraded it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of ExaGrid Ex is excellent. If I had to rate it, I would give it a ten out of ten.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

ExaGrid EX is very scalable. We are a small law firm, with approximately 50 users. 

How are customer service and support?

It is easy to maintain because the technical support takes care of the updates. They monitor it and if there is ever an issue they will contact me. The only issue that I have ever had, they contacted me to notify me that there was a bit of a problem and suggested that I update the code.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was super simple. The solution can be maintained and updated by just one person. For the most part, all I need to do is rack it, plug it in, and configure it. In less than an hour, we had it up and running.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The renewal fee is approximately $3,500 to $3.750 for a 60 terabyte device.

What other advice do I have?

I purchased a 60 terabyte device from them. I would definitely have a look at this solution. Get it installed by support when you purchase it, and they take care of everything. I have nothing but good things to say about this solution. I would rate ExaGrid EX a ten out of ten.
