I’m a sucker for the underdog, so shame on me for focusing on the big guys for so long. It’s time to change that with some news from ExaGrid, a competitor of Dell EMC and HP Enterprise in the data backup appliance market.
Earlier this month, ExaGrid announced it has increased the capacity of its Tiered Backup Storage appliances while also reducing its offerings from nine systems to seven. Appliances of any size can be mixed and matched in a cluster of up to 32 appliances.
ExaGrid also changed the naming convention of the appliances to better reflect their capacity. For example, the discontinued bottom-of-the-line EX3000 had 3TB of full backup capacity, while the new bottom-end appliance is the EX6, with 6TB of full backup capacity storage.
