Quantum
It is good hardware/software to do VMWare backup, very reliable and convenient device. Hyper-V backup may be less appropriate to do due to specific software needs.

Exagrid
We have Exagrid [EX Series] in different environments and it has adapted very well to both. We have used it for larger environments and its scalability if properly and takes up little physical space. We also use it as a backup solution for smaller environments, such as our vessels.

I don't see where the adaptability of Exagrid [EX Series] can be bad or unadjustable.

Support Rating
Quantum
Support from Quantum was okay, they performed FW upgrade and replaced few faulty disks without any problem. Some old-style connections and requirements from them produced additional loads on our IT team.

The only aleternative looked at prior to the DXi was ExGrid, while both are great options the DXi offered a little more versatility and the support has been terrific.
