Review of ExaGrid EX13000E series backup target appliance

We use the EX13000E series as backup targets for Veeam backups. We have three appliances clustered at each site with two sites, for a total of 39 TB of space per site.
  • Its landing space allows for extremely fast data ingestion.
  • Its compression and de-duplication algorithms make it very efficient.
  • ExaGrid support is excellent; I check in with my dedicated account rep twice a year, and they make sure my hardware is up to date. They take care of all software upgrades for me.
  • I don't have much to add here. Overall, it has been a solid purchase for us.
If you have a need for a high performance backup target that can ingest a large amount of data on the front end, then process it later. If you use Veeam, the two work very well together.

A backup solution that is cheap and reliable

Exagrid EX series is currently being used by our IT department to address the issue of storing backups. We use it to store backups that are a month or older before they are eventually moved to AWS. Exagrid helps us use virtual backups and by using a combination of Veeam,Exagrid, and Glacier, we have completely eliminated tapes and reduced overall coats and in the process increased efficiency which was generally a problem with the traditional tape backup.
  • Dedupes and compresses data extremely well. We have a total of 100 TB that seems like a PB for our use case.
  • Provides a cifs share platform if that is one of your needs.
  • We deployed a physical appliance un our DC that provides us 100TB of storage. It is easily scalable and easy to use.
  • Technical support helps you with the upgrade process in case of new release and they are very knowledgeable.
  • GUI is easy to use and the product requires no learning curve.
  • Helped us eliminate traditional tape backups which were not reliable and took longer for the backup and recovery process.
  • Very quick and easy recovery in case of a DR scenario compared to other backup solutions.
  • Cost-effective.
It is well suited for all sized environments especially if you are currently using tape backups. Provides a very easy to use GUI amd their support is outstanding.
