Goal to extend ExaGrid value proposition to new resellers in the United States and Canada

Lifeboat Distribution, an international value added distributor for virtualization, business continuity and other technically sophisticated products, today announced a distribution agreement with ExaGrid Systems, Inc., a leading provider of disk-based backup solutions. Lifeboat will distribute ExaGrid’s revolutionary disk-based data backup with deduplication appliance to its resellers in the United States and Canada.

ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture offers the industry’s fastest backups, restores, recoveries, and tape copies; provides VM boots in seconds to minutes; and permanently fixes the backup window length as data grows. The solution supports and complements over 25 backup applications and utilities, including Acronis, Dell, StorageCraft, Unitrends and Veeam.

“A strong, vibrant channel is key to ExaGrid’s continued growth,” said Nick Ganio, Vice President of Sales, ExaGrid Systems, Inc. “With Lifeboat’s reputation for reseller recruitment and service, we are confident that they will help our ExaGrid value proposition reach a whole new set of U.S. and Canadian solution providers.”

“We’re excited to partner with ExaGrid as Lifeboat’s first data backup with deduplication offering,” said William R. Botti, Executive Vice President, Lifeboat Distribution. “Our resellers will see this as an exciting, high margin incremental sales opportunity, as they help their customers move to disk-based backup with data deduplication solutions.”

ExaGrid’s channel program offers resellers high margins, strong deal registration, a highly trained co-selling sales team and a commitment never to take a reseller deal direct.

ExaGrid’s disk-based backup appliances will be promoted to resellers in conjunction with Lifeboat's extensive line of backup and recovery software offerings.
