SEPATON, Inc., a disk-based data protection solutions provider, has released S2100-MS2, a new multi-node deduplication solution utilizing the company's DeltaStor software. The MS2 is designed to cost-effectively meet the data protection needs of midsized enterprises that are currently hampered by scalability limitations of single-node systems.

Additionally, SEPATON extended the reach and improved both the capacity optimization and bandwidth utilization for remote replication with DeltaStor and DeltaRemote software version 5.3, providing customers with better data reduction efficiencies and ROI. EMC NetWorker support is added to the list of backup applications supported by DeltaStor and DeltaRemote.

“SEPATON designed the new S2100-MS2 to solve the pain created by single-node systems prevalent in the marketplace that provide limited growth and force customers to buy and manage multiple siloed systems,” said Mike Worhach, SEPATON's president and CEO. “Our deduplication software supports all data types and has also been enhanced resulting in improved capacity management and bandwidth utilization, planning, and reporting." He noted that some beta customers enjoyed a doubling of capacity optimization with this release.

The rack-ready S2100-MS2 with DeltaStor software features a dual-node scalable system with an entry capacity of 36 TB raw and 30 TB usable, and a maximum capacity of 192 TB raw and 160 TB usable. It performs at an ingest speed of 1,200 MB/sec. The S2100-MS2 can be upgraded to the S2100-ES2 series. The 5.3 software release also features advanced centralized management capabilities with robust reporting for capacity planning and management applicable across SEPATON’s entire product offering.

DeltaStor version 5.3 features new support for EMC NetWorker versions 7.3 through 7.5. With this release, SEPATON’s DeltaStor software optimizes results for all data types for supported versions of Symantec NetBackup, IBM TSM, HP Data Protector, and EMC NetWorker.

DeltaStor version 5.3 delivers improved data reduction efficiency with specific enhancements to optimize deduplication for incremental backups, structured data and previously unsupported data types. With enhanced capacity optimization and network utilization efficiencies, customers are achieving industry-leading ROI.

DeltaRemote version 5.3 features support for six nodes for NetBackup, TSM, and NetWorker. It leverages the new features of DeltaStor to reduce replication bandwidth requirements and concurrently replicates data while backups and deduplication are running. With DeltaRemote, replication starts within minutes after the backup completes. It also delivers detailed replication control and summary status on a tape level to enable customers to effectively manage and report on replication status and understand current and future bandwidth requirements.

SEPATON S2100-MS2, DeltaStor version 5.3, and DeltaRemote version 5.3 software are immediately now. Base pricing for the S2100-MS2 starts at $321,000 which includes the DeltaStor license. Pricing for DeltaRemote starts at $11,000 per node.
