The World’s Best Value for Business Recovery!
Sepaton Scalability & Performance in Action
 Scalable Performance
 Backup up to 10 TB per hour per node (System scales to 8 nodes & 80 TB/hour)
“Before Sepaton, we fought to meet our backup windows. With Sepaton,
performance has been amazing. We meet our windows and everything is clean. The
Sepaton system is bulletproof.”
 Scalable Capacity
 Usable Capacity (before dedupe) scales from 48TB to 4 PB per system
“We are storing far more data in less physical space than we did with our
previous deduplication system.”
Bigger and Faster Backups at Lower Cost
 Consistent and Predictive Backup and
Restore Performance
‒ Industry leading ingest performance
‒ Concurrent deduplication accelerates time to
‒ Fastest time to safety
 Even Faster Restores
‒ Forward referencing eliminates “rehydration”
when restoring last backup
‒ Restore up to twice as fast as inline
 Lowest Costs*
‒ Reduce CAPEX up to 26%
‒ Reduce OPEX up to 32%
‒ Up to 29% lower total cost of ownership
* Based on 5 year TCO model against EMC Data Domain and IBM ProtecTIER
Sepaton Differentiators in NBU Environments
Cut backup and restore times with multiple concurrent backup and restore jobs
Massive parallelism backs up and restores data faster
Faster wholesale recovery without reconfiguring - Identical read & write profile
Ideal platform for phased transition to OST
Supports both VTL and OST simultaneously
Leverage existing FC infrastructure or 10GbE or both
Multi-tenant OST storage servers support test and production as well as charge-back modeling
Transparent data-at-rest encryption for OST
Supports all HDS arrays, all disk types
Saves customer fees for Symantec-managed encryption
Automation, Automation… and more Automation
Concurrent Deduplication
Automated storage reclamation and catalog updates
Intelligent replication during low bandwidth use windows

Symantec NetBackup OST Integration
 Support of NetBackup OST (Advanced Features)
‒ Auto Image Replication (Replication of backup sets between multiple
domains and/or multiple sites in separate NBU Catalogs)
‒ Optimized Duplication (single domain, multiple sites, multiple copies of
backup sets in one or more NBU catalogs)
‒ Optimized Synthetics, NBU Accelerator and Granular Recovery
‒ Multiple retention periods through NetBackup Storage Lifecycle Policies
 Ultimate flexibility when it comes to leveraging customer SAN and LAN
environments – protect the customer investment
‒ OST Ingest over Ethernet
‒ OST Ingest over FC SAN
What is Symantec OST Auto Image
Symantec OST Auto Image Replication (AIR) is used to replicate backup
images between multiple NetBackup domains and/or NetBackup masters,
often across various geographical sites, to improve disaster recovery
 Replication is controlled by NetBackup but executed by Sepaton
 Leverages Sepaton’s built-in replication capabilities including one-toone and many-to-one replication
 Automatic catalog management at primary and remote sites
 Leverages deduplication to replicate only unique data between the
Sepaton devices to reduce the impact on the network between the sites

What is Symantec OST Optimized Duplication?
Symantec OST Optimized Duplication (Opt Dup) is used to duplicate
backup images within a single NetBackup domain from one OST device
(e.g. Sepaton PBBA) to another
 NetBackup manages the process which is executed by Sepaton
 NetBackup receives the file metadata so it can update the catalogs
 Leverages deduplication to replicate only unique data between the
Sepaton devices to reduce the impact on the network between the sites

Data Transfer
• Media server initiates duplication and Sepaton perform the data transfer
• Uses Storage Lifecycle Policies or NBU Vault
• Utilizes Sepaton’s replication technology to transfer data
• Only replicates unique data to lower impact on network
• Reduces workload on the media server
• Faster and more efficient duplication
What is a Optimized Synthetic Backup?
Symantec’s Optimized Synthetic Backup is used to “synthesize” a full
backup from a combination of previous full and incremental backups
 Eliminates need to perform full backups on client systems*
‒ Client’s CPU and memory resources are used minimally
 Reduces network bandwidth and storage requirements
‒ Full data sets are not moved over network
‒ Leverages Sepaton deduplication to minimizes storage used
 Lowers risk and improves business RPO
‒ More frequent backups means less potential for data loss
‒ Shorter backups allow multiple backups per day (approaching CDP)
Why Use Optimized Synthetic Backups?
Creates a Restore Ready Full Backup
• No “FULL+INC+INC+INC” path to recovery
• Faster recovery time improves RTO
•Simpler administration
Less Risk
Backups are smaller and take less time
• Improves time to safety (local copy)
•Less data to move
Less Time
Backups can be performed more often
• More restore points improves RPO
•More restore points
More Agile
Symantec Optimized Synthetic Backups
Incremental backups
Lightning fast backups!
Load Balanced Media Servers
Today’s traditional synthetic full is created by pulling
data through the media server then writing the new full
image back to the device.
Optimized synthetics are created immediately by the
backup appliance. NetBackup instructs which parts
of previous backups to use. Backup appliance
creates a pointer map – no data movement required.
