ExaGrid 3.0 Launches

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- ExaGrid Systems, Inc. (, the leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with byte-level data de-duplication, today announced the availability of ExaGrid 3.0. This new product version provides up to twice the backup and restore performance of previous versions, as well as scalability for a 20 TB full backup, plus retention, in a single GRID system. ExaGrid has also reduced its system footprint by 50 to 75 percent compared to previous versions.

The latest release of the ExaGrid Disk-based Backup system builds on patented technology and delivers significant product enhancements and customer benefits, including the following:

Highest Performance for Data Backup and Restore:

  • Fastest backup performance due to post-process de-duplication. Write directly to disk without any processing on the fly to slow down backups. (Backup throughput: up to 2.1 TB/hour, 583 MB/second)
  • Fastest restore and tape copy performance with byte-level data de-duplication which keeps the most recent backup in its whole form -- unlike other solutions, which require re-assembly from small blocks and large hash tables. (Restore throughput: up to 1.5 TB/hour, 417 MB/second)
