Faster backups, instant restores for NetBackup environments.
Automate, simplify and reduce the cost of data backup and replication in your Symantec NetBackup environment — with Sepaton. Enabled by our patented DeltaScale™ architecture featuring ContentAware™ deduplication, Sepaton integrates seamlessly with NetBackup and NetBackup OpenStorage (OST), allowing you to take full advantage of advanced features such as Optimized Synthetics, Accelerator and Auto Image Replication (A.I.R.).
Sepaton's "set and forget" automated solution lets you backup data in minutes instead of hours, restore data to end users instantly and replicate full backups to your main data center — or disaster recovery site — without adding to IT burdens or taxing your network. In fact, with its advanced deduplication technology Sepaton cuts the bandwidth requirements for WAN-based replication by as much as 97 percent.
Meet your backup windows with ease.
Sepaton delivers industry-leading backup performance, allowing you to meet the tightest of backup windows and complete more frequent backups for even greater protection. Plus, Sepaton delivers the mount points you need to back up data in multiple parallel streams and across multiplexed data volumes. This enables you to configure virtual tape drives as you need them and leverage NetBackup's ability to back up multiple data streams to a single Sepaton virtual tape drive. And as the only third-party enterprise-class data protection system that supports the OST API., Sepaton allows NetBackup to see disk as disk, eliminating the need for tape emulation as you migrate from tape/Fibre Channel to OST/IP.
Sepaton's multi-node restore performance also lets you take advantage of NetBackup's fast, granular recovery of data from Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint® and Active Directory® and for virtual machine hypervisors such as VMware and Hyper-V.
Choose the data you want to deduplicate.
Don't waste deduplication processing resources on data that is already compressed or deduplicated. Sepaton's DeltaStor™ deduplication technology lets you choose the data you want to deduplicate by the server, data type or application. Then, unlike conventional systems that impede backup by deduplicating data before writing it to disk, Sepaton delivers the industry's fastest backup by performing byte-level forward- referencing deduplication concurrently with backup and replication. This results in industry-leading capacity reduction and enables Sepaton to restore data instantly without the time-consuming data reassembly, or "rehydration," of ordinary inline solutions.
Seamless migration to OST
With advanced storage spooling and support for both tape/Fibre Channel, and OST/ 1- and 10-Gb Ethernet protocols on the same system, Sepaton lets you configure a pool of storage for each environment and migrate to OST as you choose. Reduce the tape/FC environment as its data expires for a simple, low risk migration with no interruptions in service. Storage pooling also lets you partition a single Sepaton system into multiple OST storage servers and track usage of each pool separately with advanced multi-tenancy.
Protect all of your data in a single system — even as you increase capacity and performance.
Sepaton's modular DeltaScale™ architecture allows you to add both capacity and performance as your needs grow. Configure as many as eight server-class nodes for up 2 PB of high performance capacity in a single system.
Combined with Sepaton's storage pooling capability, this massive single system scalability enables you to protect multiple environments, operating systems and utilize both NetBackup's tape and OST formats methodologies without the cost or complexity of multi-system sprawl. Each storage pool can be configured with the performance, capacity and backup policies you need to meet the needs of individual departments, applications or systems.
All Sepaton systems are fully interoperable for one-to-many, many-to-one or many-to- many replication topologies. Replicate your branch office data to a main data center. Copy your central data center to a disaster recovery site. Copy to tape for deep archive. Sepaton makes it easy.
Save time and money with advanced automation and management control.
Sepaton's web-based console automates all aspects of disk storage, including performance management, space allocation, sparing, capacity growth and classes of service. Sepaton also offers the industry's most robust dashboards and reporting to enable IT managers to monitor and manage all data protection operations – backup, deduplication, replication, and restore – enterprise-wide. See the status of all Sepaton data protection systems and multiple NetBackup servers and domains from one location. Its powerful management console lets you simplify and centralize your large, data-intensive NetBackup environment.
