MARLBOROUGH, MA – March 11, 2014 – Sepaton, Inc., maker of the world’s fastest and most scalable data protection solutions for large enterprises, today announced a new, easy migration program for IBM® ProtecTIER® customers. This program offers a free in-depth assessment of the customer’s backup environment with a comprehensive report of expert recommendations, migration support, and trade-in credit, along with an easy transition to the Sepaton S2100®-ES3 data protection platform and Hitachi Data Systems® (HDS) storage to ensure business continuity and investment protection. 

The easy migration program is available to any customer moving from IBM ProtecTIER with IBM Tivoli™ Storage Manager (TSM), Symantec™ NetBackup™ (NBU), EMC® NetWorker®, or HP® Data Protector, through 30th September 2014. As part of the program, Sepaton will provide the following:

  • In-depth Customer Assessment – Sepaton data protection consultants will conduct an in-depth assessment of a customer’s ProtecTIER backup environment using advanced reporting tools to evaluate TSM, NetBackup, or Networker backup environments on a variety of key metrics including, backup volume trends, client data types, client occupancy (largest clients), policy analysis, retention analysis, backup performance (longest running backups) and restore performance. The results of the assessment will be provided in a comprehensive report with expert recommendations.  This free assessment is valued at $15,000 to $30,000.


Migration Support –Sepaton resources will be available to assist with system deployment and implementation, minimizing any risk associated with a transition from the ProtecTIER system to the Sepaton S2100-ES3.  This migration support includes basic installation and integration services, and planning, design and optimization services.  All ProtecTIER customers will receive a 25% discount off these services.


Trade-in Credit – Sepaton will provide trade-in credit for ProtecTIER systems and any pre-paid maintenance services.  The credits will depend on the age of the system(s) and other financial considerations.   Every customer will receive trade-in credits to migrate to the Sepaton solution.
