These annual awards, now in their 16th year, showcase the year’s latest and greatest innovations in technology. “These premier awards are of particular import as the panel of judges are genuine experts in an increasingly complex segment of data center technology,” said Bill Andrews, CEO and President of ExaGrid. “To have been selected given their stringent criteria is an honour of which we’re quite proud.”

Only ExaGrid uses a scale-out architecture with a unique loading zone, which addresses all of the scalability and performance challenges of backup storage as well as the complexities of replication and disaster recovery. ExaGrid not only delivers the fastest backups, VM boots, and restores/recoveries, but is the only solution that truly scales, provides a fixed-length backup window, and eliminates forklift upgrades and product obsolescence.

ExaGrid is the sole provider of hyper-converged secondary storage for backup that overcomes the compute challenges of backup storage in the face of what most organizations experience as explosive data growth. ExaGrid’s ingest is 3 times faster - and restores/VM boots are up to 20 times faster - than its closest competitor. Each ExaGrid appliance that is added to an existing system brings additional compute with capacity to ensure that the backup window remains fixed in length as data volumes increase.

ExaGrid’s published customer success stories and enterprise stories number over 350, more than all other vendors in the space combined. These narratives demonstrate how satisfied customers are with ExaGrid’s unique architectural approach, differentiated product, and unrivalled customer support. Customers consistently state that not only is the product best-in-class, but ‘it just works.’
