ExaGrid’s hyperconverged secondary storage is an innovative, cost-effective, and scalable disk-based backup solution that works seamlessly with existing backup applications to minimise the amount of data stored by providing advanced data deduplication.
Their unique landing zone and scale-out architecture provides the fastest backups – it results in the shortest fixed backup window and the fastest restores.

3x better backup performance
Deduplication plays an important role in backup, but it can dramatically slow down backups, restores, and virtual machine (VM) reboots, especially as data volumes grow. ExaGrid has a unique landing zone where backups can land straight to disk without any inline deduplication processing. Deduplication and offsite replication occur in parallel with the backups and never impede the backup process as they are always a second order priority. ExaGrid calls this ‘adaptive deduplication’, and it achieves the best level of data deduplication – 3x the backup performance and up to 20x the restore and VM boot performance of other solutions.
Game-changing cost savings for data protection
Not only is backup and restore faster, but disk space required is reduced by as much as 50:1 or more. ExaGrid offers customers unparalleled cost savings and performance at half the price of inline deduplication appliances and as much as one-third the price of deduplication provided by backup applications to straight disk.
An appliance-based solution, ExaGrid offers various sizes of devices that can scale from a 3TB full backup to a 1PB full backup in a single system. This enables your customers to buy what they need as they need it, avoiding disruptive and costly forklift upgrades. Helpfully, customers are also able to mix older and newer appliances in the same scale-out system. This evergreen approach eliminates product obsolescence and protects the IT investment upfront and over time.
