Slough, UK — March 31, 2008 — SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class data protection solutions, today announced it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program. As a TAP member, SEPATON is better able to recommend best practices implementation of its S2100®-ES2 virtual tape library (VTL) solutions to optimise the benefits of VMware virtual server environments.

“This membership demonstrates the growing importance of SEPATON VTLs in the virtualised enterprise data center and our commitment to enhance and leverage the power of VMware,” said Asim Zaheer, vice president of marketing, SEPATON, Inc.

“Recent ESG Research shows strong user interest and adoption of server virtualisation in general and VMware in particular,” said Heidi Biggar, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Of the current adopters we surveyed, 70% said they were using VMware. Given these numbers and the backup challenge virtualised server environments can create, SEPATON’s participation in the VMware TAP partner program creates a compelling value proposition for mutual customers. SEPATON’s VTL provides an effective, efficient way of protecting VMware environments.”

More and more companies are implementing virtual server environments to cut costs, reduce complexity and improve service to end users. VMware’s TAP Program enables SEPATON to combine the strength of its enterprise-class VTL with VMware, enabling joint customers to realise the same performance- and capacity-leading backup and recovery metrics available in non-virtualised environments. For example, using SEPATON’s VTL with VMware, north-American customers Kindred Healthcare and Sterling Testing Systems have realised improved resource utilisation, reduced costs, and greater management flexibility (see today’s related US news release entitled, “SEPATON Delivers High-Performance Data Protection to Virtual Server Environments.”)
