Enables us to do more backups per day due to increased storage as a result of data deduplication and compression

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for onsite backup.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ease of use and data deduplication. It's extremely easy to use and does a very good job of data deduplication and compression."
  • "I would like for them to develop direct cloud integration with a third-party cloud. Direct integration with AWS and other cloud providers."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to review and to consider it as an option. If you're comparing it specifically to Data Domain, it's a great solution. I would rate it a nine out of ten because of the ease of the implementation, technical support, and ease of operation.

Useful landing zone feature, fast setup, and reliable

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for backup and recovery. It is integrated within to backup and recover virtual machines.

Pros and Cons

  • "One of the main features is the landing zone, it is a particular space where the information is not duplicated."
  • "When speaking about a scale-out, you want to have better equipment. You cannot just add a disc to the foreign equipment. You have to buy another one and put it together, like parallel."

What other advice do I have?

Those evaluating this product should understand you cannot just increase the equipment size as easy as adding discs, it is really important to have good initial sizing for the equipment. If you need more space, you will have to buy another box. I rate ExaGrid EX Series an eight out of ten.
