Organisations instinctively know that their IT infrastructures are changing or have already changed. Virtualising infrastructures to form public, private or hybrid clouds that are supported by a single IT team is rapidly becoming the new norm. Yet even as this transformation in IT occurs, what organisations expect the technologies that underlay their virtualised infrastructure to deliver remains remarkably the same.
Cost effective, easy to manage, flexible, high performing and scalable are attributes the technologies that power the IT infrastructure of tomorrow should ideally deliver. The challenge every company faces is identifying the best products to deliver on these established requirements while still delivering the features needed to power tomorrow’s IT infrastructures.
To assist in this task, DCIG Buyer’s Guides identify, weight and score product features to help organisations select products that deliver on these competing requirements. It is when DCIG turned its attention to mid-range deduplicating back up appliances that it identified the ExaGrid EX Series of appliances as the best set of solutions for mid-size enterprises to select from in order to meet their next generation IT infrastructure priorities while continuing to satisfy their age old requirements.
Jeremy Wendt, DCIG lead analyst, said, ‘The ExaGrid EX Series essentially defines what modern mid-range target based deduplicating back up appliances should deliver.’
