Exablox Announces Verification of OneBlox Scale-Out Storage Solution for Virtual Server Environments With Veeam Backup & Replication v7 Software

Exablox, the company reimagining storage, today announced its OneBlox scale-out storage and backup solution has been verified to work with Veeam Backup & Replication v7 software. Veeam is an innovative provider of data protection, replication, and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V. The combination of Exablox and Veeam delivers powerful, easy-to-use, and affordable inline deduplication and encryption for virtualized environments. The collaboration further delivers on Exablox's promise to reimagine storage and offer a scale-out storage and backup solution to midsize enterprises.

Backup and deduplication remain a major challenge for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who often lack the expertise to set up an adequate backup solution. Exablox's OneBlox scale-out storage and backup solution, now optimized for Veeam Backup & Replication, can be configured and running in less than five minutes to immediately provide comprehensive data backup easily, quickly, and affordably.

"With the recent release of Veeam Backup and Replication v7, Veeam introduced two new disruptive enterprise features -- Built-In WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots -- plus dozens of additional features that take Modern Data Protection to the next level," said Doug Hazelman, vice president of product strategy at Veeam. "When combined with Exablox's OneBlox, users have a comprehensive scale-out storage solution for backup that's built specifically for virtualized environments."

OneBlox delivers the flexibility for organizations to mix-and-match drive types (SATA and SAS) for performance and capacity within a single OneBlox appliance or within a ring of multiple OneBlox. Exablox allows organizations to purchase exactly the storage capacity needed and then add any combination of drives at any time to meet growing demands and automatically pool the storage within the same global file system. Combined with OneBlox's powerful inline deduplication, storage waste is minimized and organizations are able to maximize primary storage utilization.

"With Exablox's powerful OneBlox architecture and its cloud-based management system, OneSystem, the days of complicated, expensive and siloed storage are over," said Douglas Brockett, CEO of Exablox. "Organizations of all sizes can now affordably and easily install a comprehensive, cloud-managed, scale-out storage solution for Veeam environments. With zero configuration for growing backup environments and featuring all the benefits of Veeam's and Exablox's technology, our joint customers benefit from a truly scalable storage solution that offers complete backup and recovery, without requiring the expertise of managing an expensive complex legacy solution."
