Heating Firm Picks ExaGrid

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- ExaGrid Systems, Inc., ( the leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions, today announced that Taco, Inc., a leader in the heating and cooling industry, has selected the ExaGrid disk-based backup system to cost-effectively protect its vital corporate data. Taco was looking for a disk-based backup solution to reduce its weekly backup window despite rapidly growing primary data. The company was performing full backups from its main SAN each weekend over a period of 46 hours. With the ExaGrid system in place, the companys backup window was substantially reduced from 46 hours to 16 hours.

For Taco, a key deciding factor in evaluating disk-based backup systems was data reduction technology, and Dennis Rachiele, Taco’s senior network administrator was impressed with ExaGrid’s unique approach. “The way ExaGrid handles data reduction was an advantage,” he said.
