Using ExaGrid’s disk-based solution instead of tape can reduce an organization’s backup window by 30 to 80 percent.
A typical 12-hour backup window can be decreased to as little as four hours. Few organizations have yet turned to disk. One reason: the cost. Until recent years, tape had a cost advantage over disk. Acquiring disk was expensive, and housing weeks and even months of redundant data was costly. Without effective data deduplication technology, disk-based backup was out of the question for many organizations.
This technology decreases the cost while increasing the speed and reliability of data backups and data recovery processes. For off-site long-term retention or disaster recovery, ExaGrid supports the ability to transfer backup data to an installed system at a remote location to supplement or eliminate off-site tapes. ExaGrid supports both two-site as well as multi-site topologies where multiple locations can transfer backup data to a centralized site for disaster recovery protection. The result is that all backup data is now stored in a live disk repository for rapid restores in the event of a disaster. ExaGrid is extremely cost-effective at transferring backup data off-site because the byte-level data deduplication technology only moves changes, requiring minimal WAN bandwidth. The costs associated with tape handling, shipment, and storage are significantly reduced or eliminated.
