ExaGrid allows IT departments to use any combination of industry leading backup applications, utilities and database dumps to a single ExaGrid system. ExaGrid grows as your data grows. ExaGrid has various sized appliance models and up to 25 appliances can be mixed and matched in a single GRID system. "We like the security features that ExaGrid provides, and its functionality with Veeam, especially that backups are only accessible from the Veeam server, so if there is a ransomware attack on a network, the ransomware can’t encrypt your backup." Markus Mösch, Head of IT Infrastructure, Pestalozzi Group
