ExaGrid unveils new disk backup server

Also upgrades its Grid software to expand number of servers to ten

By CBR Staff Writer

ExaGrid Systems has launched EX10000E 10TB disk backup server that allows customers to store a 10TB full backup plus long term retention. In addition to the 10TB server, ExaGrid has unveiled an upgrade to its Grid software which expands the maximum number of servers in a Grid configuration to ten.

The company claims that the new 10TB server and enhanced Grid software bring price and performance in a single cost-effective Grid-based disk-backup system with data deduplication. Deduplication is done by writing to disk at full disk speed and adding complete servers in a Grid for full system expansion, instead of just more disk capacity.

ExaGrid said that the scalable Grid-based approach maintains fast backup performance even as data grows.

The company added that the product is fast for restore performance as it stores the most recent backup in its complete, non-deduplicated form ready for rapid restoration or tape copies.

According to ExaGrid, the features of EX10000E system and enhanced Grid software include scalable virtualised Grid architecture, which combines up to ten ExaGrid architecture in a virtualised 100TB Grid system and automatically balanced data loads across all servers in the Grid.

ExaGrid claims that fully configured installations are managed via a single centralised web UI with one login, unlike other that require managing multiple separate devices via separate logins.

Marc Crespi, vice president of product management at ExaGrid Systems, said: “Our groundbreaking new EX10000E product allows customers with larger amounts of data to achieve their backup window goals with our post-processing data deduplication, but also maintain that short backup window as their data grows by leveraging our scalable Grid architecture.

“This approach also allows customers the flexibility to buy only what they need, when they need it, as additional servers can be added into the Grid at any time. The strength of our architecture is that you can grow the system as your data grows and performance does not degrade. Each server brings additional memory, processor, and bandwidth resources along with storage capacity – all at a price that remains cost-effective for the customer.”
