I would like to announce a new sponsorship for my blog: ExaGrid.
The ExaGrid system is a cost effective and scalable disk backup solution that works with your existing backup application. ExaGrid combines high quality SATA drives, compression and byte-level data deduplication for fast and reliable backups and restores.
ExaGrid’s innovative approach minimizes the amount of data to be stored by providing standard data compression for the most recent back ups, along with byte level data deduplication for all previous backups. ExaGrid’s post-process deduplication technology stores changes from backup to backup instead of storing full file copies. This unique approach reduces the disk space required by at least 10, and up to 50 to 1, delivering unparalleled performance for the fastest backups and restores, all in a solution that costs the same as a new tape library.
ExaGrid’s byte-level data deduplication technology stores changes from backup to backup instead of storing full file copies. This unique disk backup solution reduces the disk space required for backup by a range of 10:1 to 50:1, delivers best-in-class scalability and unparalleled cost savings.
