What needs improvement?

Basically nothing at all. ExaGrid works flawlessly.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price may be a concern for SME customers. Enterprise customers would pay to achieve high performance and scalability that EMC Data Domain can't provide.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

EMC Data Domain. It's so slow and can't scale-out.

What other advice do I have?

ExaGrid is a definite purchase.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, EMC Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce.

What is ExaGrid EX?

ExaGrid's disk backup with deduplication system is purpose-built for backup that leverages an architecture optimized for scalability, performance, and price. The system scales as needed by adding ExaGrid appliances, which virtualize into a GRID architecture automatically, adding capacity and processing power while acting and being managed as one unified system.

ExaGrid disk-based backup appliances include GRID computing software, which virtualizes them into a single pool of long-term capacity. Capacity load balancing of all data across servers is automatic, and multiple GRID systems can be combined for a total logical backup capacity of 16PB.
