Spectra Logic, a provider of intelligently integrated data protection solutions, released an integrated system for deduplication, remote site replication, and automated migration to tape. Spectra Logic’s nTier Deduplication is fast, scalable, and easy-to-manage. The solution tightly integrates disk-based deduplication to tape by providing policy-based, integrated remote site replication and automated migration of replicated data to tape.

As a fully scalable deduplication appliance for small and mid-sized organizations, nTier Deduplication can add capacity to installed appliances as needed.

Demand for integrated management of tiered backup solutions is increasing as more companies consider using deduplication in their data protection environments. Spectra Logic’s integrated nTier Deduplication simplifies data protection with integrated, policy-based remote site replication. The solution achieves increased deduplication efficiency by sharing deduplication catalogs among remote sites. Users no longer need to establish multiple policies across numerous sites or purchase separate software to move replicated deduplication data to a tape archive.

As customer needs grow, the nTier Deduplication solution can be scaled up to 60 TBs of raw capacity without interrupting data availability and without requiring a migration of data. The simple field-capacity upgrades are available as needed and do not require a disruptive unit replacement. By eliminating the need for additional equipment, multiple policies or third-party software, the end-to-end nTier Deduplication solution enables users to save time and money.

Spectra nTier Deduplication solutions deliver high performance with speeds up to 900MB per second, and are compatible with all major backup software applications, such as Symantec Backup Exec and NetBackup, CommVault Simpana, CA ArcServe, HP Data Protector, and SyncSort Backup Express.

The new nTier Deduplication capabilities are available immediately. Base pricing for an nTier500 v80 Deduplication appliance starts at $23,500. Additional information is available at www.spectralogic.com.
