ExaGrid’s first quarter of bookings and revenue was the best first quarter in the company’s history. The company was Free Cash Flow (FCF) positive, P&L positive, and EBITDA positive for its 13th consecutive quarter. ExaGrid now has more than 4,200 active upper mid-market to large enterprise customers that use ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage to protect their data. ExaGrid’s growth is accelerating, and the company is hiring to expand its sales teams worldwide.

 

“ExaGrid is continuing to drive top line growth while maintaining positive EBITDA, P&L and Free Cash Flow. We’ve hit over 4,200 active customer installations worldwide. ExaGrid continues to have a 70% competitive win rate replacing primary storage behind the backup application as well as deduplication appliances such as Dell Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce and Veritas NetBackup Storage Appliances. ExaGrid’s customer retention rate is over 95%, and 99% are on maintenance and support. These are two industry-leading customer success metrics. Our business is strong in North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East and we are putting an increased focus on the Asia Pacific region,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid.

 

“Years ago, ExaGrid realized that no vendor was building storage specifically for backup, as they were all selling primary storage products as backup storage targets, which is expensive, or they were selling inline deduplication appliances, which are slow for backups and restores and result in costly forklift upgrades. Backup storage has unique needs, due to large backup jobs, incrementals, synthetic fulls, backup rotation, long-term retention, and many other aspects that make backup storage different than primary storage. ExaGrid’s unique Tiered Backup Storage was built specifically to improve backup performance, restore performance, scalability as data grows, security, ransomware recovery, disaster recovery, and improve the economics of backup, with low costs up front and over time,” said Andrews. “Primary storage is not as fast for large backup jobs, is typically not scalable, is very expensive for longer-term retention, and it is network-facing, making it vulnerable to security attacks. Inline deduplication appliances are slow for backups, slow for restores, are not scalable, and are also network-facing making them vulnerable to security attacks.

 

“ExaGrid prides itself on having a highly differentiated product that just works, does what we say it does, is sized properly, is well supported, and just gets the job done. We can back up these claims with our 95% net customer retention, NPS score of +81, and the fact that 94% of our customers have our Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature turned on, and 99% of our customers are on our yearly maintenance and support plan,” said Andrews.
