SEP Si3 Deduplication

SEP Si3 Deduplication is a scalable, high-performance, inline, global dedupe solution that optimizes disc capacity and provides data access for both deduplicated and non-deduplicated DataStores. It delivers extremely fast restores due to the deduplication repository’s direct block-level access with zero file system overhead, eliminating any performance degradation during read operations. By using variable block sizes, users can compress more data into smaller footprints and maximize limited disk space.

  • Maximizes disk space and reduces storage costs
  • Operates on any hardware and consolidates data efficiently
  • Eliminates the need for expensive hardware-based deduplication appliances
  • Decreases power consumption in data centers

When combined with SEP Replication technology, users can maximize their existing infrastructure by creating off-site warm standbys and/or replicating data from any node to any other node.

SEP Si3 Replication

Deduplication is not only used to save storage hardware during backups. It also provides the basis for replicating backed-up data in distributed data centers in a way that conserves bandwidth.

This is a useful backup scenario for companies with branch offices, but also serves to implement cold standby scenarios in the cloud. In such cases, enterprise-relevant servers are used to provide current data in cloud data centers. Data backup in the cloud, with which one must make sure that large volumes of data stored in a remote cloud and be restored inside the company in an acceptable period of time, is yet another area that replication can be used in.
