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.

607,127 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Very easy deployment, plug and play. When you add another node to the grid, you don't have to do anything.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability problems encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is one of the strengths of ExaGrid. You can go up to 25 nodes without any problem.

How are customer service and support?

Customer Service: Eight out of 10. Technical Support: Nine out of 10. We had a direct technical contact.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

EMC Data Domain. It's so slow and can't scale-out.

How was the initial setup?

Not at all, just plug and play.

What about the implementation team?

We use our own resources.

What was our ROI?

Backup and restore processes are much shorter now, and we don't need forklift upgrades every three to four years. Easy to scale-out by adding another node. Also 100% Veeam compatibility.

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

The price may be a concern for SME customers. Enterprise customers would pay to achieve high performance and scalability that EMC Data Domain can't provide.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, EMC Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce.

What other advice do I have?

ExaGrid is a definite purchase.
