ExaGrid Announces Gateway

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- ExaGrid Systems, Inc., (http://www.exagrid.com) a leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with patented byte-level data de-duplication, today announced that is has expanded its product line with the addition of the world’s first de-duplication gateway for iSCSI storage, the ExaGrid iSCSI De-duplication Gateway™. The gateway has been tested with DELL® EqualLogic™ PS5000 Series iSCSI arrays to enable economical disk-based backup solutions that are easy to deploy and manage.

The ExaGrid iSCSI Gateway with Dell EqualLogic PS Series storage provides organizations with a disk-based backup solution that delivers on the promise of backing up to iSCSI SAN disk at the same or lower price than tape-based approaches.

“For some time now, we’ve used the PS Series for our primary storage and ExaGrid’s disk-based backup system to shorten our backup windows, improve recovery times and reduce our backup costs dramatically,” said Mark Rivard, CIO of Johnson Health Network, a Connecticut-based healthcare organization serving 96,000 patients annually. “This new gateway will allow us to leverage and expand our existing infrastructure while simplifying overall management of our storage. It makes great sense for us to use the ExaGrid and Dell EqualLogic products together to achieve cost-effective and reliable backups. It’s a very smart combination.”
