We're currently using Exagrid [EX Series] worldwide as a standard solution for Remote and smaller Sites, such as Vessels and Manufacturing plants.
One of the main benefits is the native integration with Veeam Backup and Replication solution, as Exagrid [EX Series] has a internal "data mover". Being recognized as a 'data mover' by Veeam removes one hop on the data traffic and helps increasing the backup speeds.
Exagrid EX Series has 10Gbps ports, that can be configured in a active/backup mode or in a LACP / port aggregation channel, increasing even more the backup speeds.
It has a very friendly management interface, where you can manage multiple Exagrid nodes and do all the daily / required activities.
The Exagrid [EX Series] storage space is divided in 2: a 'landing zone' and a 'retention zone'.
Landing zone, as the name says, is where the backup 'lands'. This area has no deduplication/compression enabled, what makes a little faster to restore data when needed. You can configure how much time, or how many copies do you want to keep on the 'landing zone' before moving data to 'retention zone'.
When moving data to 'retention zone', Exagrid [EX Series] deduplicates it, providing an excellent retention capability.
