Sepaton launches super-duper big data-slurping deduper
Sepaton has updated its 16-node deduping disk-to-disk backup mill with hybrid dedupe methods and has planned a capacity jump to 16 petabytes.
The S2100-ES2 generation is being followed by this new VirtuoSO product, which keeps the clustered node limit of 16 dedupe heads front-ending a disk drive array but bumps up the processing power of those heads, as well as extending the scope of the deduplication.
The net result is an increase in throughput and in the amount of backup and archive data that can be stored. The new kit will be solidly pitched at enterprise customers with their ever-increasing big data backup needs.
There is an S2100-ES3 product but that is limited to 8 nodes.
Sepaton says VirtuoSO has the world’s fastest D2D performance and largest capacity in a single system. It is “the industry’s highest-performing scale-out NAS-based data protection solution with five times the capacity of competitive solutions at initial release [and] up to 22 times the capacity planned for future releases.”
The bare bones details are:
Raw capacity scales from 36TB to a tested 3.3PB and a planned 16PB – 4,000 4TB disk drives.
Throughput scales from 7.9TB/hour for a single node to a tested 31.6TB/hour for 4 nodes and an intended 126TB/hour for 16 nodes. This is faster than the 100TB/hour of HP’s StoreOnce B6200 backup array.
Hybrid in-line and post-process deduplication that’s global across the nodes.
Back-end HDS HUS 110 storage arrays and any virtual storage platform (VSP) managed arrays with RAID-6, 99.999 per cent data availability and no single point of failure. SSDs are used to accelerate system performance.
