“The Asian-Pacific market is key to our global growth strategy and with Datum we have found an excellent partner to help us realize our aggressive targets,” said Bill Hobbib, vice president of marketing at ExaGrid. “Datum and ExaGrid have the same goal – to provide the fastest, most scalable disk backup with deduplication solution, enabling customers to permanently shorten their backup window and permanently protect their IT budget as data grows.”

With the addition of Datum Technology to its partner base, ExaGrid has now recruited more than 450 partners around the world including the recent appointment of Techplus in the Australasian market.

It will allow us to offer the Asia-Pacific region a complete end-to-end data solution.  We are working very closely with ExaGrid and recently held a very successful partner training event in Singapore.”

Benefits of Deploying ExaGrid Disk Backup with Deduplication

ExaGrid backup systems are designed to meet the needs of companies backing up between 1TB and 130TB of data in a single system. ExaGrid’s unique performance-based GRID architecture is the only disk backup approach with deduplication that scales with full servers, adding both compute power and capacity, resulting in the shortest backup window that does not expand as data grows, all while eliminating forklift upgrades and product obsolescence.

Only ExaGrid permanently shortens backup windows, permanently protects  budgets, and permanently provides reliable high-quality performance. ExaGrid’s unique approach to disk-based backup delivers all the performance, reliability and security benefits of backing up to disk, at a cost that rivals the price of tape.

ExaGrid customers achieve the fastest backup times because: data is written directly to disk; data deduplication is performed post-process after the data is stored; and most importantly ExaGrid adds full servers which include processor, memory, disk and bandwidth versus just adding disk. This unique approach ensures that the backup window does not re-explode as it would with other approaches. In addition, ExaGrid’s GRID scalability enables organizations to store up to a 130TB full backup plus retention. Performance scales with data growth since processing power, memory and bandwidth are added along with storage capacity, and data loads are automatically balanced across all servers.
