Scalability

ExaGrid offers a series of nine backup storage appliance models that can be mixed and matched in a scale-out GRID.
Any size or age appliance can co-exist in the same GRID and can scale from a 2TB full backup up to a 1PB full backup
in a single GRID.
The system is flexible as the proper size appliances can be added as data grows. This eliminates the need
for up-front planning and allows customers to expand the ExaGrid system as their data grows.
The unique landing zone allows for the fastest backups and the fastest restores, recoveries, and tape copies.
The unique scale-out approach, which includes full appliances in a GRID, is the only solution that fixes the backup
window length, resulting in the elimination of expensive forklift upgrades.
The ExaGrid system allows for replication to a second site for disaster recovery as well as the ability to allow
multiple data centers to cross-protect between each other.
The ExaGrid approach allows you to simply pay as you grow by adding the appropriate sized appliances as data
volumes increase.
Any size appliance or any age appliance can be mixed and matched in a single GRID, which allows for IT departments
to buy compute and capacity as they need it. This approach also eliminates product obsolescence.

All appliances and all GRIDs are managed by a single user interface.
