ExaGrid supports a wide variety of backup applications, utilities, and database dumps. In addition, ExaGrid allows multiple approaches within the same environment. A customer can use one backup application for their physical servers, a different backup application or utility for their virtual environment, and also perform direct Microsoft SQL or Oracle RMAN database dumps – all to the same ExaGrid system.
If you change backup applications in the future, the ExaGrid system will still work, protecting your initial investment.
ExaGrid supports many unique features and interfaces such as improved performance for Veritas Backup Exec GRT, AIR for Veritas NetBackup, OST for Veritas Backup Exec and Veritas NetBackup, and an integrated Veeam Data Mover for Veeam.
Many backup applications perform software-based data deduplication. ExaGrid deduplication leverages the backup software and adds additional deduplication to increase the overall ratios, resulting in additional savings in disk and bandwidth. ExaGrid brings additional deduplication to backup applications such as: Veeam, Commvault Simpana Client, Dell vRanger, Unitrends Virtual Backup, and others.
ExaGrid is the only solution that provides a unique landing zone that maintains full copies of the most recent backups from all backup applications, utilities, and dumps so that restores, recoveries, and tape copies are as fast as reading from disk.
