"Very capable disaster recovery platform"

What do you like best?

It performs exactly as advertised. It's reliable, fast, and gets good compression. My primary use for it is maintaining database backups and Exagrid is my favorite storage location.

What do you dislike?

I don't have to touch it from an administrative standpoint, I just consume the storage. I haven't had it fail or personally give me any issues in the five years I've used it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a robust and flexible on-prem storage solution, Exagrid should be on your list of things to evaluate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a DBA, I am responsible for maintaining a large amount of backups and unless I consume extreme amounts of disk space, I can't retain meaningful data for very long. Exagrid allows me to dump backups every 15 minutes from 15-20 database servers with a retention period of up to a month. It does a very good job at compression and I have never felt like it wasn't fast enough for me.

"Reliable backup storage with world class dedup"

What do you like best?

The post process dedup. The most recent backup is stored uncompressed for quick DR recovery. Backup jobs and endpoint resources are not overloaded with dedup processing. That is done on the grid with no impact to production workloads.

What do you dislike?

There is no role based security on CIFS shares. Only a server whitelist to allow access to the share by any user on the server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Veeam integrates nicely. Consider WAN bandwidth when replicating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Economical enterprise backup storage on disk with replication to alternate site and excellent deduplication.

What Server Backup solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
