Industry-Leading Virtual Tape Library Delivers High-Performance, Enterprise-Class Functionality for Oracle Tape Backup Product

KINGSTON and READING, UK — October 23, 2006 — SEPATON, Inc., the leader in high-performance data protection solutions, today announced at Oracle OpenWorld 2006 that its award-winning S2100®-ES2 Virtual Tape Library (VTL) system has attained certification as fully compatible with Oracle® Secure Backup, tape backup management software that delivers secure, high performance network tape backup for Oracle Databases and file systems. The combined solution, enables customers to significantly increase their backup and restore performance leveraging world-class Oracle network tape backup software.

Oracle Secure Backup provides an integrated, easy-to-use backup solution that encrypts data to tape to safeguard against the misuse of sensitive data in the event that backup tapes are lost or stolen. It offers high performance and a virtually seamless support for advanced Oracle features such as Oracle Recovery Manager, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Automatic Storage Management and Oracle Data Guard.

Enterprises deploying Oracle’s database and application solutions benefit from Oracle software to help power storage management, backup and recovery, while also accommodating high-availability applications that demand large amounts of storage. When combined with Oracle Secure Backup, SEPATON’s S2100 provides a flexible, scalable data protection solution that can backup an Oracle Database more than 10 times faster than traditional tape drives. This means backup administrators can reduce their organisation’s exposure in a disaster recovery situation.

“Qualifying the S2100-ES2 for use with Oracle Secure Backup provides customers with trusted, high-performance data protection solutions for their networked storage environments, enabling advanced storage management and high availability,” said Miklos Sandorfi, chief technology officer, SEPATON, Inc. “This milestone kicks-off our relationship with Oracle, and ensures delivery of best-in-class storage solutions to some of the world’s most data-intensive enterprise customers.”

With Oracle Secure Backup and the SEPATON S2100-ES2 VTL, Oracle customers will achieve a high-performance, scalable data protection solution for the Oracle Database and heterogeneous file system data. Since Oracle Secure Backup charges licensing fees for physical tape drives only, the SEPATON S2100-ES2 VTL can be deployed within Oracle Secure Backup domains for $0 licensing cost.

The SEPATON S2100-ES2 Virtual Tape Library System delivers a simple, modularly scalable, high performance appliance that reduces the cost of storing, protecting and recovering data. The S2100-ES2 features appliance-like ease of integration into existing backup infrastructures and can emulate all leading automated tape libraries and tape formats, including DLT, SDLT, LTO, AIT, and more.

SEPATON is a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork.

The solution is being demonstrated this week (October 22-26) in booth #2612 South Hall, at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.
