Sepaton Delivers Remote Replication for Data Intensive Enterprises

MARLBOROUGH, MA - May 18, 2009 - SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class disk-based data protection solutions, today announced that for the first time the world's largest, most data intensive organizations can cost-effectively and reliably perform remote replication. SEPATON's new DeltaRemote(TM) software enables enterprises to back up and replicate large volumes of data for simple, cost-effective disaster protection. DeltaRemote delivers the performance, scalability and automation large enterprises need to meet regulatory requirements for disaster recovery, reduce labor-intensive tape handling, and meet stringent recovery time objectives (RTO).

DeltaRemote software leverages SEPATON's scale-out architecture, and the power of its DeltaStor?? deduplication software to significantly reduce the bandwidth requirements of replication by as much as 97 percent. The scale-out architecture enables companies to add performance or capacity as needed simply by adding modular processing nodes or additional disk. The architecture automatically integrates added capacity and balances all processing needed to back up, deduplicate, and replicate data across multiple nodes for optimal performance. Each SEPATON node can deduplicate as much as 25TB of data per day while replicating only relevant changes.

"SEPATON is the key component of our upcoming disaster recovery deployment," said Tom Walsh, CIO of ACN, the world's largest direct seller of telecommunications services. "We have come to rely on our SEPATON VTL to protect our critical data assets within the datacenter. With DeltaRemote, we will further automate and improve our data protection strategies from site-wide disasters as well."

"Coupling deduplication with replication to reduce bandwidth requirements enables large-scale data center environments to meet DR imperatives," said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "SEPATON's scale-out architecture already makes it a must-evaluate solution for reducing back up and operational recovery windows. With the addition of remote replication, it's now a more compelling solution for enabling disaster recovery too."

"Physical tape and standard disk-based solutions are not designed to provide the level of performance, scalability or control that large, data-intensive organizations need to back up, deduplicate, and replicate enterprise-scale volumes of data. DeltaRemote enhances the SEPATON solutions by replicating large volumes of data to remote sites without adding manual tasks or taxing network resources," said Fidelma Russo, executive vice president of engineering and development, SEPATON, Inc. "Enterprises can now save money and reduce the risks of manual tape handling with a reliable, secure, remote replication solution."
