SEP Software, the leading provider of comprehensive, heterogeneous backup solutions announces the release of version 4.0. After a year of continuous development the new release delivers new functionality along with a new, look and feel to improve the speed of backups and the accuracy of required data restoration.
SEP sesam delivers one of the most comprehensive backup, recovery and data recovery solutions available today. With this release new features promise to ease the workload of company System Administrators and users alike.
New features offer unlimited capabilities to design backup and recovery solutions for any sized enterprise. The powerful new GUI enables fast deployment of backup as well as easy connectivity and configuration of new devices. For example, laptops can be added, configured and backed up in the fastest time ever. When reattaching to the network after travel or long absences from the company network laptops can be backed up while the user continues his workday.
In addition, new servers and other edge devices can be added to the backup architecture with only a few clicks of the mouse.
The continued explosion of user data presents unique problems not addressed by other backup solutions. SEP sesam delivers and grows and expands with the needs of the user community, be it a small business or enterprise with 10's of thousands of computers.
“Our product design and development follows conscientious and continuous dialogue with our user base. The newest release incorporates the requests and needs from our users and resellers, but goes beyond that to anticipate future system needs and requirement,” reported Georg Moosreiner, CEO for SEP.
A few of the major enhancements include:
MS Exchange Clustered Backup -Task types can be established for MS Exchange 2010 databases via DB Availability Groups. You can easily replicate a database to a separate host location or create a second instance on the same server. This can insure against errant database entries or inadvertent DB deletions saving hours if not days to reconstruct lost data.
Integrated Analysis and Data Integrity Control for all Media Types - Automated switch settings allow constant or periodic verification of data already stored on the media. This allows the system administrators to constantly monitor and record log files regarding data media viability, integrity and availability. Results are logged for system and backup record keeping and auditing.
GUI Enhancements - The ease of use of the GUI layer has been greatly enhanced to include, in some cases, a 10 to 1 reduction in commands need to perform daily tasks, e.g. commands were reduced to a single click to set up notifications and email alerts regarding all backup activity.
Beyond Disk-to-Disk-Tape - Replication and Migration of Data - Users can backup to disk then replicate to tape to reduce system loads, but beyond this users can implement new backup technologies using and transfer SEP sesam backed up data from the old to the new without rewriting the data to the host backup server. For example, LT02/03/04 tapes can be recreated onto LT05 media eliminating the need to keep old tape drives on hand to retrieve old data.
Powerful Scripting Technologies - Allow the user to deploy and design unique solutions for every environment.
