High speed virtual tape library with enterprise class storage capacity.

Sepaton : 14 November, 2007  (New Product)
Sepaton releases scalable virtual tape library with unmatched access times, full RAID 6 protection and data de-duplication technology.
Sepaton has extended its leadership position in the enterprise-class data protection market with a faster, larger capacity system designed to protect petabytes of data across the enterprise at a lower cost. The S2100-ES2 Series 750 virtual tape library (VTL) scales to 1.2 PB uncompressed usable capacity and data rates up to 9600 MB/second, out-performing competitive offerings by a factor of three in performance and two in scalability. With new RAID 6 protection, customers will realise improved resiliency without sacrificing performance or capacity utilisation. With the next generation in VTL technology, customers benefit from dramatically faster backup and restore times, lower total cost of ownership, reduced risk of data loss, and longer online retention rates.

"We recognised that our very large enterprise customers have unique requirements that no other VTL on the market could address," said Miklos Sandorfi, chief technology officer, SEPATON, Inc. "We designed the new Series 750 with the speed, de-duplication efficiency and capacity scaling that they require."

The S2100-ES2 is built upon SEPATON's unique ContentAware architecture to give users unparalleled control over data and to easily add advanced data protection applications available today including RAID 6, remote replication, fail-over assurance, and data de-duplication.


The S2100-ES2 Series 750 features 4 Gb Fibre Channel technology designed to enable backup/restores at up to 9600 MB/sec (previously 4800 MB/sec) and to scale capacity to more than 1.2 PB uncompressed usable capacity per appliance, or up to 60 PB with compression and DeltaStorâ„¢ data de-duplication software. By expanding capacity to store more data on disk in less physical space, customers can significantly reduce power, cooling and other operating and infrastructure costs by up to 96%. According to a Gartner report entitled, "Meeting the Data Center Power and Cooling Challenge" November 28, 2006 (Michael A. Bell), "by 2008, 50% of current data centres will have insufficient power and cooling capacity to meet the demands of high-density equipment.

The ES2 compresses data without impacting performance as the only VTL that can perform backups and restores at a rate of 34.5 TB/hour. The high-availability appliance can handle exponential data growth by adding up to sixteen Scalable Replication Engine (SRE) nodes per 750 Series VTL, and each SRE node performs at 600MB/s. Also new to the 750 Series is RAID 6 support for a higher level of data integrity and support for 3,072 virtual devices (previously 1,536).

In a recently published ESG Lab Validation report, it was confirmed that the Sepaton S2100 VTL solution can sustain more than 600 MB/sec of backup throughput per node and that performance scales in a linear fashion as nodes are added. According to ESG Lab's Brian Garrett, technical director, "With a focus on ease of use and box-to-backup simplicity, enterprise-class performance in excess of 600 MB/sec per node and a grid based architecture that is designed for extreme scalability and fault tolerance, ESG predicts we'll be hearing a lot more from Sepaton in years to come."


Sepaton combines its industry-leading VTL solution with enterprise class data de-duplication technology today. The S2100-ES2 is equipped with compression to deliver double or triple the physical storage capacity without additional physical disk. Customers can add DeltaStor data de-duplication software to store up to 50 times more data (with compression) in the same space.

ESG Lab also validated the benefits offered by DeltaStor de-duplication software as a solution that reduces disk capacity by an impressive factor of up to fifty to one with the use of hardware-based LZ compression for fast and reliable restores and longer retention periods. And it does it fast. ESG Lab measured an impressive de-duplication rate of 250 MB/sec as 650 GB of data was processed in 45 minutes on a dedicated compute node within a three-node S2100 Enterprise without affecting ongoing backup or restore performance.
