ExaGrid Software Upgrade Increases Capacity and Improves Replication for Its Backup Storage Appliances

Version 4.8 expands scale-out GRID capacity to an 800TB full backup, adds bandwidth throttling, and encryption for WAN replication to a disaster recovery site.

ExaGrid, a provider of disk-based backup storage, has released version 4.8 of its software for the ExaGrid family of backup storage appliances. The new release increases the number of appliances to 25 in a single scale-out GRID, which expands full backup capacity by 78 percent and adds both bandwidth throttling and encryption during replication.† ††

ExaGrid’s landing zone and scale-out architecture boasts the fastest backup with the shortest fixed backup window, the fastest local restores and offsite tape copies, and instant VM recoveries while permanently fixing the backup window length.

Version 4.8 of ExaGrid’s software offers:

  • An 800TB backup capacity: Up to 25 ExaGrid appliances can be mixed and matched in any combination in a single scale-out GRID. ExaGrid’s largest configuration is 25 EX32000E appliances in a single GRID for a maximum full backup capacity of 800TB and an ingest rate of 187.5TB per hour.
  • Bandwidth throttle: Replication between ExaGrid sites across a wide area network (WAN) can be scheduled for a specific day and a bandwidth usage limit can be set for each scheduled period.
  • WAN encryption: Data can be encrypted during replication between ExaGrid sites. Encryption occurs on the sending ExaGrid site, is encrypted as it traverses the WAN, and is decrypted at the target ExaGrid site. This removes the need for a virtual private network (VPN) to perform encryption across the WAN. ExaGrid also offers encryption at rest for data stored on ExaGrid systems.

The version 4.8 software is available at no charge to all customers who have a valid maintenance and support agreement.
