More than 4,000 customer systems are now protected by SEPATON solutions representing greater than 400 PB under management. 

SEPATON, Inc., a provider of enterprise-class disk-based data protection solutions, has announced that it closed the first half of 2010 with new product innovations targeted for large enterprises, managed service providers (MSPs) and private clouds; a new strategic alliance with Hitachi Data Systems; and record customer adoption. More than 4,000 systems and 400+ PB of data are currently protected and managed by SEPATON technology. This success builds upon the company’s seven-year record of providing intelligent data protection solutions with unparalleled performance, unique grid scalability, and its ContentAware technology to manage all phases of the data protection lifecycle. 

“SEPATON executed well across all functional areas of our business," said Mike Worhach, president and CEO, SEPATON. "Our strategic alliances came through with our newly inked partnership with top-tier storage vendor Hitachi Data Systems, and our engineering team delivered many new capabilities such as the secure erasure of sensitive information and new data protection innovations with ContentAware data analytics and storage pooling for supporting MSPs and cloud deployments,” he said. “This is the result of our continued focus on delivering leadership features, performance, and product superiority to customers," he said. "The first S2100-ES2 Series 2900 deployments are underway and we are actively engaged with the HDS sales team and building strong momentum in North America which will roll into EMEA and PAC this quarter.”

In its July 2 issue, eWEEK offered a snapshot of important continuing trends in data storage. Leading the list is storage pooling, defined by eWEEK as an approach to storage virtualization that delineates specific areas of the storage system to be dedicated to specific data flows to enable more efficient multitenant service deployments, for example.

“While most other de-duplication vendors continue to trot out proprietary, overpriced stovepipe arrays with embedded ‘value add’ software that doesn’t add enough value to justify the huge markup on commodity disk drives, SEPATON seems to have discovered a technology for which there is a real need: storage analytics,” said Jon Toigo, president, Toigo Partners. “I like what they are up to and can see it eventually displacing de-dupe as a driver of company profitability and customer value.”

Completing the first half of 2010, SEPATON has achieved these significant goals:

Expanded Market Presence:

Growth in customer base: 4,000+ customer systems are currently protected by SEPATON data protection solutions and more than 400 PB under management. Twenty-five percent of existing customers added to their investment in SEPATON solutions in the first half of 2010 across a broad range of vertical industries, including financial, government, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, entertainment, transportation, education and retail.

New strategic alliance. SEPATON entered into a strategic agreement with Hitachi Data Systems and is shipping the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage 2100 array as the storage foundation of the SEPATON S2100-ES2 Series 1900 and 2900 featuring 99.999 percent data availability and an integrated DeltaView central management suite.

Industry accolades: Award recognitions include 2010 Red Herring North America 100 Finalist and winner of the Tech Awards Circle, taking bronze in the Midrange Hardware category for the SEPATON S2100 data protection appliance with DeltaStor deduplication software.

Regional expansion: New regional office established in Frankfurt to support central Europe and targeting new partnerships with leading European resellers.

Product Innovations:

The introduction of a new award winning multi-node midrange deduplication offering: S2100-MS2 with DeltaStor software cost-effectively meets the data protection needs of midsized enterprises that are hampered by scalability limitations of single-node systems.

Expanded backup support: EMC NetWorker support is added to the list of backup applications supported by DeltaStor and DeltaRemote, which also includes Symantec NetBackup (7.0), IBM TSM (6.2), and HP Data Protector.

Symantec’s NetBackup OpenStorage (OST) application programming interface (API): Demonstrated support for OST with the S2100-ES2 and DeltaStor software, facilitating backup to disk without emulating tape, streamlining the backup process for joint customers.

The introduction of Secure Erasure option: Providing guaranteed, auditable erasure of information on virtual tape cartridges, Secure Erasure enables storage administrators to schedule all or selected cartridges for a total data overwrite with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) approved data pattern for clearing or purging low, medium and high sensitivity data to ensure that no data can be retrieved from those tape cartridges.

Data protection for the cloud: New version 5.4 software ships with features for cloud scale data protection including secure multi-tenancy based on SEPATON’s innovative Storage Pool technology and DeltaStor deduplication; ContentAware Analytics, providing the information needed to optimize performance, maximize system utilization and accurately project cost and resource requirements for the future; and improved WAN optimization for DeltaRemote.
