The SVC Awards honour the products, projects, and services – as well as companies and teams – operating in the cloud, storage, and digitalization sectors, recognizing the achievements of end users, channel partners, and vendors. According to SVC, there were a record number of nominations across all categories in 2018, so finalists did particularly well to make the shortlist this year and for companies like ExaGrid to win. Voting took place amongst the readership of the Digitalisation World stable of publications with the number of votes again breaking previous records.

Peter Davies, Sales Manager of the Digitalisation World portfolio at Angel Business Communications (organisers of the SVC Awards), said: "I’m delighted that we have this annual opportunity to recognise the innovation and success of a significant part of the IT community. The number of entries – and the quality of the projects, products, and people they represent – demonstrate that the SVC Awards continue to go from strength to strength and fulfil an important role in highlighting and recognising much of the great work that goes on in the industry. This year's finalists represent the very best in the industry, and ExaGrid was voted as outstanding by our readership to win the Hyper-convergence Company of the Year category."

Central to its very architecture, ExaGrid solves the myriad of performance challenges inherent to deduplication for backups, restores, and VM boots. By converging compute with capacity in each appliance, and in concert with virtually any backup application, ExaGrid’s scale-out backup storage with unique landing zone perform at a rate that is 3X faster for ingest and over 20X faster for restores and VM boots than its closest competitor. In addition, ExaGrid is the only solution that ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows. Using ExaGrid, IT can benefit from the fastest backups, restores, and VM boots; a fixed-length backup window; and the ability to easily scale their systems, buying what they need as they need it and eliminating forklift upgrades and product obsolescence – all at the lowest cost up front and over time.

“We are honoured to have been voted SVC’s 2018 Hyper-convergence Company of the Year,” said Andy Walsky, ExaGrid’s Vice President of Sales, EMEA/APAC. “We believe it reflects ExaGrid’s popularity as the industry’s premier hyper-converged backup storage solution for customers looking to replace outdated backup technology in their IT environments with a more current, all-in-one approach.”

In 2018, ExaGrid began shipping its largest, most powerful appliance to date – the EX63000E – which has 58% more capacity than its predecessor, allowing for a 63TB full backup (configurable to an 80TB full backup). Due to ExaGrid’s scale-out technology, up to thirty-two EX63000E appliances can be combined in a single scale-out system (an increase from the previous twenty-five combined appliances), allowing for a 2PB full backup, which is a 100% increase over the previous 1PB. The 2PB full backup in a single system is twice the size of ExaGrid’s closest competitor – the Dell EMC Data Domain 9800. The EX63000E has a maximum ingest rate of 13.5TB/hr. per appliance, so when thirty-two EX63000Es are combined in a single system, the maximum ingest rate is 432TB/hr.

ExaGrid’s published customer success stories and enterprise stories number over 360, more than all other vendors in the space combined. These include a two-page narrative and customer quote, demonstrating how satisfied customers are with ExaGrid’s unique architectural approach, differentiated product, and unrivalled customer support. Customers consistently state that not only is the product best-in-class, but ‘it just works.’

Businesses are still struggling to understand where and how to start Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
