Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – ExaGrid, a leading provider of intelligent hyper-converged storage for backup, has announced further momentum for joint enterprise customers with Veeam Software, the leader in backup solutions that deliver cloud data management.
The combined solution addresses emerging backup requirements for restores and VM recovery for the “just in time” enterprise data center.
Dramatically reduce total cost of ownership
Together, ExaGrid Systems and Veeam enable enterprise businesses to dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for backup and backup storage, including the reduction of IT workload and maintenance requirements, while increasing performance for backup and recovery times.
The amount of data an organization manages continues to grow, impacting uptime goals and budget. The ability to access the right data at the right time and restore it quickly can greatly impact an organization’s productivity. ExaGrid and Veeam together solve this challenge for enterprises.
Leveraging private, managed and public clouds
ExaGrid and Veeam were brought together to meet the challenges of data growth and offer uninterrupted operations to support the virtual data center and hybrid cloud while reducing cost. ExaGrid and Veeam enable customers to boot VMs in seconds to minutes and leverage the private, managed and public clouds. The combined solution enables customers to increase the performance of their backup infrastructure while reducing data storage and complexity to meet their data backup goals via a high-performance, flexible and scalable architecture.
“Long-term data backup and quick recovery of critical data and applications are now considered essential to every business strategy, but not all solutions are able to deliver these essential IT requirements. Together, ExaGrid and Veeam help customers create a scalable, simple to deploy and manage, and flexible solution,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and president of ExaGrid.
“A simple, flexible and reliable infrastructure”
“As the leading innovator of cloud data management solutions, Veeam makes it easy for our customers to protect all of their virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads regardless of where those reside,” said Ken Ringdahl, vice president of global alliances architecture at Veeam Software. “ExaGrid’s integration with the Veeam Data Mover further enhances that position by enabling interoperability and creating unique value for Veeam features, including SureBackup, DataLabs and Instant VM Recovery. ExaGrid’s support for Veeam’s Scale-Out Backup Repository also helps customers more effectively manage their backup jobs and scale-out as needed, offering customers the ability to create a simple, flexible and reliable infrastructure.”
The joint ExaGrid and Veeam solution offers customers the flexibility to:
- Recover production VMs in under a minute to ensure application uptime
- Retain data on site, off site at a second data center and off site in a third-party managed cloud or public cloud
- Leverage physical cross-replication with up to 16 worldwide major data centers in a group
- Back up directly using SQL dumps or Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN)
- Maintain the ability to have a hybrid cloud approach to data management and backup
