Performance Optimized for Large Database Environments
Sepaton is the technologically superior backup and recovery solution for DB2, because Sepaton is the only enterprise-scale data protection solution designed specifically for large database environments.
Above all else, Sepaton delivers the industry’s fastest backup, restore and replication.
Backups are performed at up to 80 TB per hour, regardless of data type, change rate or system capacity.
Sepaton’s patented ContentAware™ deduplication technology finds more duplicate data, uses less processing power and completes the deduplication process faster than any other approach.
Restores are completed quickly from the most recent backup without time- consuming data reassembly, or "rehydration," required with ordinary hash-based deduplication methods.
Exclusive multistream, multiplex capability
Only Sepaton can efficiently deduplicate large, multistream, multiplexed databases such as DB2. By using the actual content of the backup to identify duplicate data at the byte level, Sepaton can find duplicates in separate parallel backup streams and across multiplexed data volumes for maximum capacity reduction.
Conventional inline, hash-based deduplication technologies cannot support multistreaming and multiplexing in very large database environments. Their recommended settings of FILESPERSET=1 and no more than 3 to 5 simultaneous backup streams actually stop the multiplexing of data across multiple streams. That may simplify deduplication, but it puts an unnecessary constraint on administrators.
Sepaton, on the other hand, can support up to 16 simultaneous streams, allowing you to multiplex the backup streams.
ContentAware Deduplication finds every duplicate byte
Conventional hash-based inline deduplication processes cannot efficiently deduplicate large databases or progressive incremental backup environments such as Tivoli Storage Manager and NetBackup OST that store data in small segments of less than 8 KB. By only examining data in segments larger than that, competitors’ solutions can impede backups, leave large volumes of data undeduplicated and produce less-than-optimum capacity reduction.
Sepaton’s ContentAware™ byte-level deduplication, on the other hand, finds every byte of duplicate data without slowing backup or recovery performance. This powerful technology enables Sepaton to recapture capacity and control exponential data growth with unparalleled efficiency.
Supports the way you work today, grows with you tomorrow
Sepaton doesn’t require you to change anything about how you prefer to backup your databases. There is no scripting, no resetting of backup policies and no continual system tuning. It simply works.
And it will continue to work as your needs grow. Sepaton’s DeltaScale™ architecture maintains performance as you add capacity, easily expanding from 24 TB to 2 PB in a single backup system.
