ESG Lab Validates ExaGrid

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- ExaGrid Systems, Inc. (http://www.exagrid.com), the leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with byte-level data de-duplication, today announced that the results of a lab review by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), an analyst firm specializing in the testing and analysis of specific storage-related products, have confirmed that the ExaGrid Disk-based Backup System provides leading backup and restore rates, linear performance and scalability with large and growing data amounts, and substantial cost savings due to data de-duplication.

The recently published report details the results of ESG Lab's comprehensive testing of the ExaGrid Disk-based Backup System and validates ExaGrids product claims in all aspects of data backup and recovery, including high-speed backup and restore rates, data de-duplication ratios, linear scalability, remote replication and general ease of installation and management.

The following excerpts from the ESG Lab report discuss ExaGrid’s performance in several key areas that organizations should consider as they evaluate a disk-based backup system with data de-duplication.
Backup and Restore Performance:

“ESG Research indicates that performance is the top priority for data center managers considering a disk-based backup solution. ExaGrid uses a scalable post-process de-duplication approach for optimal backup and recovery performance. As an organization’s data grows, the ExaGrid approach maintains day-one backup and restore performance. Using real-world data and a real-world backup application, ESG Lab has confirmed that ExaGrid can backup data at a rate of 4 TB/hr for a fully configured grid. Based on ESG Lab’s experience testing a number of disk-based backup systems in recent years, this is a superb level of performance.”
