Leading provider of enterprise data protection emphasises its commitment to increasing energy efficiency of data centres

Slough, UK –– 23 October, 2007 – SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class data protection solutions, today announced that it has joined The Green Grid, a non-profit consortium of information technology companies and professionals seeking to lower the overall consumption of power in data centres around the globe. By joining the many influential technology companies already a part of The Green Grid, SEPATON looks to impact the group’s initiatives by offering unique and valuable insight, innovation and perspective on how emerging data de-duplication and virtual tape library (VTL) solutions can positively impact the growing energy strains facing data centres today.

As large enterprises continue to realise that data centres consisting of extensive tape libraries and infinite backup servers are no longer feasible to maintain (from a space and power perspective), companies like SEPATON are breaking new ground to help address these growing concerns. SEPATON’s virtual tape library and software capabilities - such as data de-duplication, which is part of its innovative ContentAware™ architecture - allow enterprises to reduce their dependence on physical tape and back up more data on fewer disks, cutting down on both the space and electricity needed in data centres. With more data being generated and stored than ever before, the company’s fully integrated data protection solutions are designed to help businesses cope with this influx in a more space/power-efficient way.

“As enterprises face the very real dilemma of rapidly growing data centres and their increasing power consumption, alternative solutions like VTL and data de-duplication will be extremely instrumental in helping curb this problem,” said Mike Worhach, president and CEO of SEPATON. “Organisations like The Green Grid have the power to positively influence technology industries and help spur solutions for one of the most profound environmental issues facing businesses today. We are committed to working with The Green Grid consortium in developing a viable plan to make data centre energy consumption more efficient.”

The Green Grid is chartered to develop meaningful, platform-neutral standards, measurement methods, processes and new technologies to improve energy efficient performance of global data centres. Membership to the consortium is open to those companies and IT professionals with an interest in helping to support the movement to improve data centre power consumption and improve overall efficiency.
