Mike Worhach, CEO, Sepaton

Mike Worhach, president and CEO of VTL provider Sepaton, says 2008 is going to be a big year for data de-duplication.

"I think we're still in the hype factor stage with de-dupe for enterprise use," he says. "A lot of claims have been made, but in the enterprise space, no one has completed that story yet."

By mid-2008, Worhach hopes to close in on over 30 RFPs he says are in the works with a variety of enterprise customers, mostly in the financial sector, and mostly against rival EMC. Worhach is also bullish on the possibility of Sepaton's profitability and potential for going public next year. We caught up with him by phone today to get his take on these and other topics.
