ExaGrid Announces Backup

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 industry’s first 30TB disk-based backup system with data de-duplication and a scalable GRID architecture. This product enhancement allows customers to store a 30TB full backup, plus weeks or months of retention, in a single GRID system. The expanded 30TB capacity will be available for both ExaGrid’s EX series servers with internal storage, as well as the ExaGrid iSCSI Gateway for Dell® EqualLogic™ PS Series storage arrays.

In addition to expanded backup capacity, ExaGrid provides best-in-class backup performance by writing to disk at full disk speed (post-processing) and by adding complete servers in a GRID for system expansion, instead of just more disk capacity. This scalable GRID-based approach maintains fast backup performance even as data grows. ExaGrid is also uniquely fast for restore performance as it stores the most recent backup in its complete, non-de-duplicated form ready for rapid restoration or tape copies.
