Like its entire backup family, the new appliance keeps the backup window fixed in time forever, and delivers the fastest restores – regardless of data growth. No other backup architecture can match this commitment, because only it solves the compute problems associated with deduplication.
This newest addition to the family extends the company’s founding vision to remove the risk from data protection – and solve the chronic, costly problems associated with expanding business data growth.
The EX21000E scales to 210TB with a 10-appliance grid – and provides 80% faster speeds, 62% more capacity and 10% more throughput per terabyte – all at a lower price point than ExaGrid’s EX13000E, released in 2011. It also features an ingest rate of 4.32TB per hour, which increases to an ingest rate of 43.2TB per hour with 10 appliances in a grid.
The new appliance is available, and integrates with existing ExaGrid appliances. It can be mixed and matched in the same grid with all previous models: EX1000, EX2000, EX3000, EX4000, EX5000, EX7000, EX10000E and EX13000E.
Architecture Matters: Compare Scale-Up versus Scale-Out
Backup requires an architecture that deals with data growth and deduplication – which are the main drivers affecting the backup window, restore speed and IT budgets.
ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture adds computing power with capacity, combined with a Landing Zone, to solve the storage problem and the deduplication compute problem. Other available products, including EMC Data Domain, HP D2D, Quantum DXi and Dell 4100, rely on scale-up technology, limiting overall capacity and computing power, requiring costly upgrades regularly.
Backup Without Compromise
The EX21000E follows through on ExaGrid’s promise to deliver a permanent solution to the backup problem, and is standing by its five-point commitment for every deployment:
- No backup window growth regardless of data growth
- The shortest backup window
- Fast restores, tape copies and recovery from a disaster
- VM instant recoveries in minutes
- Lowest cost solution upfront and over time, with no forklift upgrades, obsolescence and a price guarantee.
