Sepaton Launches Cloud Data Protection Appliance
Sepaton Inc., developer of enterprise-class disk-based data protection solutions, has launched a hardware appliance aimed squarely at affordably securing data for multiple organizations on private cloud infrastructures with the release of version 5.4 of their software. Here are some quick details.
The highlights of the new release, according to Sepaton: multi-tenancy, data deduplication, centralized management, automated load-balancing, storage tiering, and thin provisioning.
It’s designed to speed up deduplication and data replication and enhance efficiency — they claim that multi-tenancy means performance optimization is done on-the-fly and data segmentation is done by storage pools. Sepaton claims they’re the only ones on the market taking this approach to cloud protection.
We’ve heard claims like this before from companies like ParaScale, even if they take a different route to get similar results, and I’m left wondering if certain segments of the cloud data protection market have hit the point of commodification.
