ExaGrid: Operator Groep Delft (OGD) Delivers Innovative New Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Platform Featuring ExaGrid and Veeam Availability Solution

The Netherlands' Market-Leading IT Services Provider Determines ExaGrid and
Veeam Deliver Best-in-Class Data Movement, Backup and Recovery Solution for
Virtual Environments

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2015) -ExaGrid®, a leading provider
ofdisk-based backup storage, today announced thatOperator Groep Delft(OGD)
has chosen the ExaGrid andVeeam Availability solutionas a critical component
of its new Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform offering. OGD is one
of the Netherlands' market-leading IT service providers, delivering office
automation services to its customers in the fields of end-user management,
service delivery management, system operations, and outsourcing. The new OGD
IaaS platform now enables its clients to outsource their IT environments by
simply migrating their applications and data onto the innovative OGD
platform.

To be compelling to customers, OGD knew that it needed its IaaS solution to be
incredibly robust and stable so that it could deliver against a range of
Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The IaaS solution also needed to be capable
of scaling, without huge additional cost, to meet the g rowth demands of each
customer. And, it needed to be very easy to implement so that OGD could meet
these growth demands without a huge investment in support staff. As a result,
OGD began to select best-in-class providers for all of the components of the
IaaS solution.

"We were certain that we wanted to build our IaaS platform around VMware's
vSphere from the beginning," said Joep Piscaer, CTO at OGD. "However, we had
to make sure that we could find a vendor or combination of vendors who
provide a data movement and backup solution that is best-in-class in a
virtual environment and that meets our specific platform requirements. We
found that with the integration of ExaGrid and Veeam."

Piscaer found that all backups, restores and recoveries would complete
accurately and the fastest with theExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data Mover.
Moreover, the Veeam backup server most efficiently inter-operates with its
Veeam data mover using its optimized Veeam communications versus generic
CIFS. And, the entire synthetic full operation occurs on the ExaGrid
appliance, eliminating the need to move data between the Veeam backup server
and backup storage, which greatly reduces the time to complete a synthetic
full.

OGD knew that protecting customer data was vital to success. In fact, OGD
decided that to stand out from the competition, it would differentiate its
platform on recoverability rather than just performance grounds. The
ExaGrid-Veeam solution also delivered the ability to instantly recover a
VMware (or Hyper-V) virtual machine (VM). This is made possible via ExaGrid's
unique landing zone feature, a high-speed cache that retains the most recent
backups in complete form. Using Veeam's Instant VM Recovery, OGD could run
the VMware VM directly from the backup on the ExaGrid appliance. Once the
primary storage environment is brought back, the VM running on the ExaGrid
appliance could then be transparently migrated to the primary storage for
continued operation. This would ensure OGD would deliver on all SLAs --
customers would have full control, and the ability to restore data at will.

ExaGrid's scale-out architecture and unique approach to deduplication were
also central to OGD's purchase decision. Piscaer noted that ExaGrid's
scale-out approach provides OGD with the plug-and-play performance the
company needs to be able to grow their platform -- with none of the growth
limitations of the scale-up vendors. He added that the most important factor
behind OGD's decision was the way ExaGrid handles deduplication.

"It is the separate Landing Zone and Repository that make it possible for us
to deliver the Gold-level RTO," said Piscaer. "Most importantly, the level of
integration between Veeam and ExaGrid is a major advantage to our business
and has completed the chain for us. The fact that the two vendors work
together at an engineering level -- and that ExaGrid is a supported backup
platform for Veeam -- means we have nothing to worry about."
