Sepaton VirtuoSO Data Protection Platform Offers Grid Scalability
Grid scalability provides seamless addition of performance and capacity with automatic, continuous rebalancing of workloads.Backup and recovery specialist Sepaton announced the release of its VirtuoSO data protection solution, which is based on the company's OptiScale architecture and starts at $344,500. The platform, which is currently in limited release and will be generally available in the first quarter of 2014, boasts updated system management and reporting capabilities, including a new graphical user interface designed to enable easier management with dashboards from anywhere on any device. Engineered to address the critical needs of enterprise data centers and manage explosive data growth and new data types, with support for virtualization, big data, cloud and other emerging use cases, the solution provides support for multiple network-attached storage (NAS) and emerging protocols as well as smart hybrid deduplication (inline hash-based and post-processing), and includes a comprehensive management system. "Data centers today are challenged by an explosion in data volumes, data types, and devices," Laura Dubois, vice president of storage research at IT analytics firm IDC, said in a statement. "As a result, the disk-based data protection and recovery market is experiencing very strong growth and is anticipated to top nearly $17 billion in 2017. Data center IT staff are recognizing that continuing to add more and more independently addressable NAS data protection systems and resources is inefficient, cost prohibitive and complex."
Grid scalability provides seamless addition of performance and capacity with automatic, continuous rebalancing of workloads to protect many petabytes in one, easy-to-manage system and enables enterprises to add performance and storage capacity independently as needed starting at 7.9TB per hour with a single node and scaling up to 16 nodes for total throughput up to 126TB per hour in a single system.
