collaborative venture with Veeam
, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data

ExaGrid Backup with Veeam provides fast backups and

to an offsite location for disaster recovery that maximizes data
reduction and scales to meet the needs of any enterprise. This newly
announced option offers small to mid-size customers the opportunity to
purchase the package together via a single SKU.

ExaGrid provides built-in integration with Veeam’s unique technologies:

  • ExaGrid runs Veeam Data Mover in its appliance and supports a Veeam
    end-to-end protocol; for fast backups, providing a 30 percent increase
    in backup performance versus other products on the market;1
  • ExaGrid’s integration with Veeam Data Mover results in fast synthetic
    full backups;
  • ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture leverages the Veeam Scale-out Backup
    Repository™ (SOBR), which allows automated job management and seamless
    linear scalability.

The ExaGrid Backup with Veeam offering comes in three
scalable models: a 13TB backup system, a 21TB backup system, and a 32TB
backup system, scalable up to a 90TB full backup.

“ExaGrid and Veeam have been alliance partners for over eight years.
ExaGrid’s architecture complements Veeam on many levels. The option to
purchase both as an end-to-end package is just one more step in the
journey,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and President of ExaGrid.

“ExaGrid continues to be a valuable member of the Veeam Alliance Partner
Program,” said Carey Stanton, Vice President of Global Alliances,
Business and Corporate Development at Veeam. “ExaGrid and Veeam have
helped customers intelligently manage their data for years and now, we
are making it even easier. This new ExaGrid Backup with Veeam
offering provides customers a simple and effective way to implement
Cloud Data Management via this packaged offering.

This combined package delivers key benefits to customers, including:

  • Scalability: The solution scales out to match customer data
    growth without costly upgrades by simply adding ExaGrid appliances to
    create a larger pool of storage, and by using Veeam Scale-out Backup
    Repository to manage backup and recovery.
  • Fastest Recovery: The offer provides the fastest recovery on
    the market for deduplication appliances by leveraging Veeam’s Instant
    VM Recovery, enabling customers to restore from the most recent backup
    copy, including VMs, files or application items from Microsoft
    Exchange, Active Directory, SharePoint, SQL Server and Oracle
    databases, and more.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Customers can use Veeam Backup &
    Replication’s built-in source-side data deduplication harmoniously
    with ExaGrid’s zone-level deduplication, which reduces storage and
    bandwidth consumption, resulting in the most cost-effective scale-out
    deduplication solution up front and over time.

ExaGrid Backup with Veeam is currently available in the
United States and Canada; however, program expansion will be considered
for other countries in the future. Contact your local ExaGrid reseller
