Company has another record growth quarter while increasing market share. 

ExaGrid Systems, a supplier of cost-effective and scalable disk-based backup solutions with data deduplication, has announced that it will now support IBM i. The company reported it has achieved another record quarter, marking the company’s thirteenth consecutive growth quarter and one in which the company expanded its base to more than 750 customers while gaining significant new market share.

Along with strong sales results and double digit percentage quarter over quarter growth, the company continued to execute in a variety of important areas during the quarter. Key achievements in Q3 2010 include the following:

Product Enhancements: ExaGrid added support for Veeam Software’s backup application (v. 4.x) and the IBM System i platform (AS400 or iSeries). Customers using Veeam’s industry-leading backup product for VMware environments or who need to backup AS400 data can now get faster, more reliable backups with ExaGrid’s high-performance, scalable disk-based backup appliance while also integrating quickly and easily with their existing infrastructures.

Growing Global Market Share: With more than 750 customers, ExaGrid continued to grow its customer base and worldwide market share. ExaGrid has the industry’s largest installed base of GRID scalable disk backup appliances with data deduplication in mid-market and small enterprise companies, with more than 3,000 systems installed at more than 1,100 customer sites worldwide. Nearly half of ExaGrid’s customers have completely eliminated tape in their storage environments using ExaGrid appliances for both onsite and offsite backups.

200 Real-World ExaGrid Customer Success Stories: First-hand experiences with ExaGrid are published on the company’s website, including case studies from leaders like American Standard, Bird & Bird, California Department of Veterans Affairs, City of Fort Lauderdale, Commonwealth of Massachusetts–IT Division, Cross Country Homes, Kentucky League of Cities, Prestige Brands, Southeastern Container, and U.S. Probation office. These are more published customer endorsements and success stories than all competitors combined.

Worldwide Channel Growth: ExaGrid announced participation in the Symantec Alliance Network program, a co-marketing initiative designed to help channel partners uncover new revenue opportunities with joint solutions from Symantec and selected Symantec alliance partners. ExaGrid also continued adding to its global base of nearly 400 channel partners, including a growing number of regional value-added resellers. ExaGrid delivered a record percentage of the company’s business through channel partners, and continues to successfully scale its global channel sales model.

Industry Recognition and Leadership: During the quarter, ExaGrid customer, Poulin Grain, was named one of five finalists for SNW/Computerworld’s “Best Practices” Award. This follows ExaGrid being named “One to Watch” by Storage magazine at the annual Storage Awards in London in Q2, and the Q1 selection of ExaGrid as Storagemagazine-SearchStorage.com’s Backup and Recovery Hardware “Product of the Year.” 

“With our record performance in Q3, ExaGrid has now achieved 13 consecutive growth quarters and another double-digit growth quarter,” said Bill Andrews, president and CEO of ExaGrid Systems. “During Q3, sales of ExaGrid’s award-winning, disk backup appliances with data deduplication continued to increase both domestically and internationally. Our ongoing market leadership in performance and scalability provides an ideal solution for mid-market/small enterprise companies that need faster, more reliable backups. In addition, our price leadership makes ExaGrid the solution of choice for a growing number of companies with tight IT budgets.”

About ExaGrid’s Technology

The ExaGrid system is a plug-and-play disk backup appliance that works with existing backup applications and enables faster and more reliable backups and restores. Customers report that backup time is reduced by 30 to 90 percent over traditional tape backup. ExaGrid’s patented byte-level data deduplication technology and most recent backup compression reduces the amount of disk space needed by a range of 10:1 to as high as 50:1, or more, resulting in a cost that’s comparable to traditional tape-based backup.
