1st #VMUGIT Hands-on Day: ExaGrid
On January 18th, the 1st VMUGIT Hands-on Day has become reality! Main guest of this first meeting was ExaGrid (represented by Andy Palmer, EMEA Sales Director) and it’s disk appliance backup solution.
The Hands-on day
Our idea for Hands-on day events, is to create a “day in a lab” where a single vendor can present its solution and allow participants to test it live. The main goal is to allow people genuinely interested in the solution proposed, to have a technical presentation and to have a technical contact with the vendor.
The event was a success! About 16 people attending the event, several questions and a lot of interaction between the vendor and the participants.
ExaGrid is a US company, founded in 2002, that produce easy to use, plug-and-play disk backup and dedupe appliances.
The ExaGrid system is a scalable disk backup solution that works with existing backup applications. ExaGrid approach combines SATA drives, compression and byte-level data deduplication for fast and reliable backups and restores.
I’ve recorded the first demo. A note to my english speaking readers: the language used in the demo is Italian.
See you at the next VMUG meeting!
