-Massive single system scalability powers industry’s most efficient data protection solution, reducing complexity and cost in the data centre-

London, UK – 24 January 2011 - SEPATON, the leader in enterprise-class disk-based data protection platforms, today unveiled its next-generation platform: version 6.0 software, which drives its new S2100-ES2 Series 1910/2910 system. The new platform delivers grid scalability of both performance and capacity; the industry’s fastest performance; multi-protocol support; high-reliability; and industry-leading deduplication. The new product is an important enabler of private-cloud computing as well as a platform for the powerful next-generation data protection capabilities needed in today’s enormous scale-out storage environments.

“Today’s enterprises are faced with explosive data growth, increasing complexity, limited budgets, and risky technology transitions,” said Mike Worhach, president and CEO, SEPATON, Inc. “With today’s release of our new data protection platform, SEPATON provides a simple, cost-effective way for enterprises to address today’s critical business issues and enable next-generation innovation.”

Laura Dubois, program vice president, IDC, said, “SEPATON’s laser sharp focus on delivering data protection platforms with enterprise-class capabilities such as massive grid scalability, storage pooling that enables phased migration to new technologies, and cloud enabling multi-tenancy, will be a key platform for enterprises to control the rising costs of managing massive data volumes and exponential data growth.”

New in SEPATON’s version 6.0 data protection platform:
*Industry’s fastest performance – With performance of up to 1500 MB/sec/node, the S2100 more than doubles the performance of previous models, making it five to ten times faster than the nearest competitive appliance solution. The platform features state-of-the-art 64-bit hardware and software for maximum processing performance as well as improved power efficiency, dynamic power management, and a more flexible 2U form factor. Customers can back up, deduplicate, and replicate massive data volumes faster, reduce backup windows, meet restore SLAs and/or RPO/RTOs with unparalleled scalability to eliminate system sprawl.

*Multi-protocol support – For the first time, the S2100-ES2 platform supports Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage (OST) on 10 Gb Ethernet concurrently with Fibre Channel tape emulation, eliminating many technology and platform migration issues for enterprise customers.

*High reliability solution – The new platform uses highly reliable Hitachi Data Systems AMS 2100 disk arrays to deliver 99.999 percent data availability and features a variety of high reliability enhancements, including automatic snapshots of the DeltaStor database, a more streamlined software installation process; automatic verification of software versions on all nodes, intelligent handling of full storage pools, and redundant links between nodes.

*Industry-leading IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) capabilities – Only SEPATON has enhanced ContentAware technology that efficiently deduplicates both progressive incremental TSM backups and multi-streamed database backups. Enhancements in the new S2100 software deliver the industry’s highest deduplication ratios for the broadest set of TSM environments and use cases.

Availability and Pricing:
-S2100-ES2 Series 1910/2910 with version 6.0 software is shipping now. Base pricing for the S2100-ES2 starts at $257.5K. Within 90 days, v6.0 software will be available at no charge to existing SEPATON customers on maintenance contracts with qualified hardware.
