MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- SEPATON, Inc. advanced its leadership position in the high-performance data protection market as it today announced that it has grown revenue more than 230% over the past twelve months compared to last year, expanded its user base to more than 500 customers, and completed a multitude of company and product accomplishments that have poised the company to further grow its leadership position in the advanced data protection marketplace.
In 2006, SEPATON achieved many company and product goals that have enabled it to extend its dominant position in the virtual tape library market, while laying the groundwork to rapidly take the lead in other strategic market segments including data de-duplication and off-site data replication. Among its accomplishments, SEPATON:
. Grew its customer base to more than 500 customers in key vertical
industries including consulting, financial services, government, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and utilities securing new accounts such as Baptist Health, Carillion Healthcare, China Construction Bank, Coach, Colgate, Golub Price Chopper, Hyundai, Kindred Healthcare, Maine Medical, Nalco, New York Board of Trade, Ricoh, Samsung and Suburban Propane. SEPATON's technology now protects 18 PB of data worldwide.
. Expanded its installed base. Over 50% of SEPATON customers added
capacity or performance due to the flexibility of the S2100R-ES2 architecture and ease of upgrade capabilities. During the most recent twelve months of SEPATON market success, customers are deploying larger systems more quickly and as a primary component of data protection. The average SEPATON system deployed in 2006 features more than 40 terabytes, 2.4 times the average capacity of the previous twelve months.
. Announced ContentAware(TM) DeltaStor software that exponentially
increases the amount of data that can be stored on a SEPATON S2100-ES2 VTL appliance. DeltaStor software eliminates the need to store unchanged or duplicated data within files so users can store more data online at significantly lower cost, delivering the highest level of data de-duplication ratios without affecting the backup window.
