General product family overview:

ExaGrid understands that deduplication is required, but how you implement it changes everything in backup. ExaGrid has a unique landing zone where backups can land straight to disk without any inline processing. Backups are fast and the backup window is short. Deduplication and offsite replication occur in parallel with the backups. Deduplication and replication never impede the backup process as they always are second order priority. ExaGrid calls this “adaptive deduplication.”

 

Veeam testing configuration:

Veeam Build Number: 9.0.0.902

Job Settings:

Deduplication: Enabled (Default)
Compression: Dedupe Friendly
Storage Optimization: Local Target (Default)
 

Repository Settings:

Repository Type: Deduplicating Storage Appliance
Align backup file blocks: Disabled (Default)
Decompress before storing: Disabled (Default)
Per-VM Backup Files: Enabled
 

Special Considerations:

  • Scale-out Backup Repositories supported on ExaGrid EX series appliances starting from Exagrid Software version 5.0
