WESTBOROUGH, Mass. -- ExaGrid Systems, Inc. (http://www.exagrid.com), the leader in cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with data de-duplication, today announced that it has surpassed the 200 customer installation mark worldwide. This is the industrys second largest installed customer base for disk-based backup systems with data de-duplication. ExaGrid’s expanding number of customer installations is further evidence of the rapidly growing list of companies deciding to either augment or replace tape with a disk-based backup system.

“We looked at several different systems and even considered building our own, but no solution could match ExaGrid in terms of price, data de-duplication and support,” said Jon Mahlbacher, network engineer with AMERICAN SYSTEMS, a Virginia-based, 1,500-employee systems engineering, technical and managed services firm. “It all came together when we realized we could deploy a two-site ExaGrid system and improve the speed and reliability of our local backups, while gaining the high availability we were looking for in our disaster recovery plan.”

“Fifty-one percent of ExaGrid’s customers have a primary site ExaGrid and still make tapes for offsite storage, while the other forty-nine percent have an ExaGrid system at the primary site and an ExaGrid system at an offsite location entirely eliminating tape. This shows customers’ progress toward complete tape elimination,” said Marc Crespi, VP of Product Management with ExaGrid Systems, Inc.

ExaGrid’s disk-based backup system works with existing backup applications such as Symantec BackupExecTM, Symantec NetBackupTM, CommVault GalaxyTM, CA ArcServe®, EMC Networker® and others.

“Worldwide customer adoption of the ExaGrid Disk-based Backup system continues to expand rapidly,” said Bill Andrews, president and CEO of ExaGrid Systems, Inc. “By surpassing the 200 customer installation mark, ExaGrid has the second largest group of installed customers enjoying the benefits of a disk-based backup system with data de-duplication. With the highest performance and most scalable product at the best price, ExaGrid is a fast-growing leader in the hot global market for disk-based backup.”ExaGrid Systems Inc.
