Klarna Selects Sepaton S2100 Data Protection to Handle and Secure Data for Data Growth

Sepaton’s S2100-ES3 data protection platform has been selected by Klarna to protect hundreds of terabytes of data, meet regulatory requirements, and minimize data center cost and complexity. Klarna needed to replace a tape-based backup environment with a data protection solution that was effortlessly scalable in terms of both performance and capacity, and could perform Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) backup and restore operations across large data volumes at the fastest rates achievable. With Sepaton’s S2100 platform Klarna can add both performance and capacity modularly as required, without adding new systems. Capacity is scaled by adding disk shelves - up to three petabytes before deduplication - while performance is boosted by adding processing nodes - up to eight nodes - for an 80 terabytes per hour.

University of Utah Health Care Deploys Sepaton, Inc.'s S2100(R) Data Protection Platform

Sepaton, Inc. announced that University of Utah Health Care (UUHC) deployed the S2100(R) data protection platform, replacing an incumbent deduplication solution, enabling them to easily meet backup windows, simplify the tape staging process for efficient long-term storage, and store more data in less disk space through significantly improved deduplication ratios. UUHC data center backs up approximately 15 TB/day and 1.7-2.0 PB per month. They manage and protect a total of 7 PB of data from both the University and healthcare organizations by backing up data, then staging it and copying it to tape for long-term storage to comply with the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Sepaton Unveils Sepaton VirtuoSO Data Protection Solution

SEPATON, Inc. unveiled the Sepaton VirtuoSO data protection solution. Based on Sepaton's new OptiScale(TM) architecture, VirtuoSO delivers performance, with advancements in deduplication, grid scalability, comprehensive multi-protocol support, and smart data movement. The result is the high-performing scale-out NAS-based data protection solution with five times the capacity of competitive solutions at initial release with up to 22 times the capacity planned for future releases. It is engineered to address the critical needs of enterprise data centers, manage explosive data growth and new data types, with support for virtualization, Big Data, cloud and other emerging use cases. Sepaton VirtuoSO provides support for multiple NAS and emerging protocols, "smart" hybrid deduplication (inline hash-based and post-processing), and has a comprehensive next-generation management system. VirtuoSO is built on Sepaton's OptiScale architecture, an extensible architecture designed with the future in mind, enabling it to deliver the performance and large capacity in a single system, while reducing operating and capital costs. Major components include: Extensible Scale-out Architecture purpose-built for enterprise data protection and optimized for large sequential I/O workloads. Engineered with the flexibility to support features for new and emerging protocols, data types, and backup applications as well as new approaches to backup, virtual environments, and cloud integration; Grid scalability provides seamless addition of performance and capacity with automatic, continuous rebalancing of workloads to protect many petabytes in one, easy-to-manage system. It enables enterprises to add performance and storage capacity independently as needed starting at 7.9TB/hour with a single node and scaling up to 16 nodes for total throughput up to 126 TB/hour in a single system; "Smart" hybrid deduplication optimized for all workloads and data types for the most efficient use of storage and bandwidth. Sepaton VirtuoSO Smart Hybrid Deduplication software automatically maximizes data reduction and performance globally, using inline and post-processing modes, depending on data type and change rate. It also enables policy-driven setting of the deduplication mode, including an option to bypass deduplication for data types such as encrypted or compressed data; Smart data movers enable multi-source and multi-target replication, and data migration for accelerated ingest and network efficiency. Sepaton VirtuoSO Intelligent Data Mover software is the basis for replication, source dedupe, data migration, and data tiering; New system management and reporting capabilities included in a new graphical user interface enable easy management with powerful dashboards from anywhere on any device. The Sepaton VirtuoSO data protection solution is currently in limited release and will be generally available in the first quarter of 2014.
