UNH Deploys Sepaton

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class data protection solutions, today announced that the University of New Hampshire will deploy SEPATON's S2100-ES2 virtual tape library (VTL) and DeltaStor® software for data deduplication as a key part of a consolidation effort combining two separate backup and recovery environments into one newly architected disk-based storage infrastructure.

"By creating a single disk-based backup environment that will scale in capacity and performance to support the administrative and academic operations of the University we will gain economies of scale and efficiencies that we want to leverage. It also provides a path to move away from physical tape as the primary backup medium,” said Bob Rader, storage and backup manager for the University of New Hampshire. "But in order to justify replacing tape with disk, disk-based backup costs had to be reduced to compete with tape. Data deduplication with hardware compression became critical technology in our evaluation to solve the cost/capacity metric we needed to meet for disk-based storage.”
