Exagrid last week introduced an enhanced version of its ExaGrid Version 5.0 data deduplication and backup platform. The new version supports Oracle RMAN Channels, Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository and replication to AWS.
With Oracle RMAN Channels, as many as 25 ExaGrid appliances are supported. “Sections” of data are sent to each appliance in parallel and RMAN Channels will send the next section of data to the next available appliance in the GRID. If any appliance fails in the GRID, RMAN Channels continues to send backup data to the remaining appliances.
ExaGrid v5.0 also supports Veeam’s Scale-Out Backup Repository, which allows the direction of all jobs to a single repository made up of Exagrid shares across multiple ExaGrid appliances.
Finally, 5.0 allows replication of primary site ExaGrid backup systems to Amazon Web Services for offsite disaster recovery.
Why Should You Care: ExaGrid continues to innovate with its landing zone and scale-out architecture by supporting backup technologies in popular use.
