- New VTL offers 1TB/hour back-up/restore performance; 7TB of physical storage; SEPATON DeltaStor software included enables up to 200TB to be stored; simple to install and manage -

London, UK - 12 April, 2007 — SEPATON, Inc. has launched the S2100-DS2 Series 500 virtual tape library (VTL) and its de-duplication software application, DeltaStor, in the UK and mainland Europe. Together they enable SMEs and departments within larger businesses to reliably and cost-effectively retain as much as 200TB of data using software de-duplication and compression. Because the device optimises storage space and hardware, it dramatically reduces the heating and power costs that would normally be associated with mass storage.

The S2100-DS2 is a turnkey disk-based appliance that simulates a tape library, enabling businesses to back up more data in less time and to keep more data online in a secure, highly reliable environment. There are two configurations: 3.5TB and 7TB. It is the second generation of SEPATON’s product line designed specifically to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses, and departmental or remote offices.

SEPATON DeltaStor software complements the virtual tape library, providing small businesses with technology that can identify and eliminate redundant data. With a de-duplication ratio of up to 50:1 for a typical mix of business application data such as files and email, the S2100-DS2 enables users to keep more data online than any competing solution

Because data is de-duplicated outside of the primary data path, the DeltaStor software enables the S2100-DS2 VTL to maintain up to 1TB/hr backup/restore performance with de-duplication enabled.

SEPATON delivers the benefits of disk storage at a cost per GB stored that is less than physical tape enabling longer online retention of data. The S2100-DS2 DeltaStor appliance extends retention for a 3TB backup (full and incremental backups) from one week to 6 months.

Operating and infrastructure costs are also reduced with a smaller footprint and less power and cooling.

The S2100-DS2 is available for immediate purchase. It has a starting price of less than £10,000 UKP. In the UK it will be available through Hammer, which has been signed as the company’s first UK distributor.

Jason Beeson, sales director for Hammer, said: “At Hammer we understand storage and can guide our users through the demands, frustrations and constraints that they face to a storage solution that is ideal for their business. This new solution from SEPATON provides the dual benefits of lowering the cost of storage while increasing reliability. We look forward to introducing this product to our resellers, who are looking for mid-market solutions that combine cost-effectiveness and reliability while having a smaller footprint that requires less cooling and power.”

Christo Conidaris, sales director for SEPATON, said: “Storage technology should be innovative yet simple and accessible to businesses of all sizes. At the same time, the S2100-DS2’s scalability is unparalleled in the marketplace, and it simplifies storage, for example it can extend retentions for a company’s 3TB backup from one week to six months.”

Mike Worhach, president and CEO of SEPATON, Inc., said: “At SEPATON we believe in constantly challenging the rules of data protection. The S2100-DS2 is perfect for growing businesses that want to secure their data in an efficient, reliable disk-based solution. It’s effective, intelligent and reliable.”
