Sepaton CTO to Speak at SNW about Database Deduplication

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sepaton, Inc., maker of the world's fastest backup and recovery solution, today announced that Jeff Tofano, chief technology officer, will present a session at Storage Networking World (SNW) Fall ‘12, taking place October 16 - 19 at the Hyatt Regency Silicon Valley/Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Additionally, Sepaton will feature its industry-leading data protection platform, which powers its high-performing, grid-scalable S2100® solutions, during the event at booth #313.

Titled, Making a Hash of Database Deduplication, the session will be held on Thursday, October 18 at 10:45 am.

“Deduplication plays in their ongoing struggle to backup, replicate, retain, and restore massive, fast-growing data volumes,” said Tofano. “However, few are aware that inline/hash-based deduplication technologies are not able to efficiently deduplicate multistreamed, multiplexed database data, or data in progressive incremental backup environments such as Tivoli Storage Manager. Understanding the limitations of inline/hash-based deduplication and the impact of these limitations on data protection can save large enterprise organizations hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in disk capacity, power and cooling, and administration labor.”

Mr. Tofano’s session will review deduplication technologies and outline key considerations for their use in enterprise environments. Attendees will learn:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of two broad categories of deduplication currently used in today’s enterprise datacenters: inline/hash-based deduplication and ContentAware byte differential deduplication.
  • The growing need to deduplicate very large databases while enabling fast multistreamed, multiplexed backups.
  • The costs and consequences data center “sprawl” caused by dividing backups onto numerous individual, backup systems, including less efficient deduplication, time-consuming load balancing, and added risk and complexity in the data center. Learn techniques for avoiding sprawl.
  • The implications of impending overwhelming data growth on the enterprise data center, and the critical measures necessary to handle it cost-efficiently.
