Broomfield, CO (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Starboard Storage Systems™, the leader in hybrid storage for modern application workloads, and SEP Software™, an innovative provider of comprehensive heterogeneous backup solutions, today announced that they have formed a Technology Alliance Partnership. The partnership will deliver a storage platform capable of consolidating mixed application workloads with backup in physical and virtual server, and VDI environments. Starboard Storage Systems will be exhibiting at VMworld at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, on August 26- 29. Visit Starboard Storage in booth 634.
Starboard Storage and SEP Software are committed to providing customers with easy-to-use, high performance, complete and flexible business continuity solutions. Together, Starboard and SEP will deliver high performance storage with data backup and disaster recovery capabilities. The joint solution takes advantage of Starboard’s SSD hybrid storage and SEP’s Multi-Streaming technology. Starboard’s SSD hybrid storage delivers up to 20 times the performance of traditional NAS and SAN systems and significantly reduces backup and recovery times across physical and virtual environments. SEP’s Multi-Streaming technology allows users to simultaneously backup unlimited streams of data to a single storage device.
The Starboard Storage AC Series™ is hybrid storage designed to provide solid state performance for active data, while keeping data at rest stored on cost-effective hard disks. The AC Series dramatically simplifies managing modern application workload environments that include unstructured, virtualized and structured data. Starboard eliminates many Small and Medium Enterprise customer pain points with its MAST™ architecture. The MAST architecture is built from the ground up and features SSD acceleration tiering and dynamic storage pooling with simplified provisioning and management through Starboard Storage Apps™.
As a technology alliance partner, SEP Software will provide Starboard’s customers with enhanced data protection for physical and virtual environments. SEP sesam™ provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of physical and virtualized applications, and is fully certified for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer virtual server and VDI environments. SEP Software and Starboard AC45 and AC72 storage systems complement each other and enable customers to speed up their backup and data protection for physical server, virtual server and virtual client deployments.
Fully certified with VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer, the Starboard Storage AC Series is an ideal solution for storage consolidation supporting multiple protocols, NFS, CIFS, iSCSI and Fibre Channel, and enabling ease of managing mixed workloads. The AC Series’ capacity can be expanded on-the-fly up to 576TBs with automatic load balancing across new drives as they are added. Drive speeds and capacities can be mixed and matched within the Starboard Storage AC Series.
“We are delighted to have SEP Software as a Starboard Storage Technology Alliance Partner to jointly provide customers with leading edge hybrid storage with solid state performance, simplified backup and disaster recovery, and more reliable data protection in physical and virtual environments,” said Karl Chen, chief marketing officer at Starboard Storage Systems. “SEP’s multi-streaming technology significantly shortens the backup time required for Starboard AC customers.”
“We are pleased to have Starboard Storage Systems as a Technology Alliance Partner verified on SEP sesam to bring SEP’s advanced backup, recovery and disaster recovery capabilities to customers,” said Lanai Bayne, vice president of business development at SEP Software. “Customers are now deploying SEP sesam along with Starboard’s SSD accelerated storage and reducing backup windows by up to 95%. In addition to the high level of performance, customers are also diversifying with the new SEP sesam Cloud Server, which allows customers to backup to Amazon EC2, Citrix Cloud Stack as well as enabling them to build their own private cloud infrastructure.”
The Starboard Storage TAP program members participate in product compatibility testing with Starboard Storage AC Series, the creation of joint solutions and mutual customer support services ensuring a reliable comprehensive solution for customers.
