Sepaton Taps Hitachi for Deduplication Storage

Friday Apr 23rd 2010 by Paul Shread

The relationship with HDS could be the start of something big for the dedupe company.

Sepaton will use the Hitachi Data Systems AMS 2100 storage array as the back-end storage for its high-end S2100-ES2 deduplication virtual tape libraries (VTLs).

The HDS array replaces one from Dot Hill (NASDAQ: HILL), which will continue to supply storage for Sepaton's low-end and midrange appliances. The move gives the high-end dedupe competitor to EMC's (NYSE: EMC) Data Domain unit an 8 Gbit Fibre Channel back end for its enterprise customers.

And while the latest versions of the S2100-ES2 — the 1900 and 2900 — are a Sepaton product, the company could also see a boost from the HDS sales team, as Hitachi's other dedupe partners, Data Domain and Diligent, have been acquired by competitors EMC and IBM (NYSE: IBM).
