SEP offers advanced snapshot backups and native backup API support for RHV 4
Boulder, CO – August 30, 2016 – SEP Software, a vendor of platform-independent, backup and disaster recovery solutions for unified data protection, announced its support for Red Hat Virtualization 4 and the availability of an API-driven snapshot backup solution for the recently released RHV 4.
The combination of Red Hat Virtualization’s backup API with SEP’s backup solution offers more consistent data protection, as well as the compliant recovery of virtual machines (VMs) in productive IT environments. The integrated solution offers a platform for IT-administrators utilizing the SEP management interface to monitor the data protection status of the entire IT infrastructure. SEP supports Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization versions 3.5.1 and later.
SEP’s backup solution offers greater data protection and gives fast and intuitive restore capabilities for VM’s virtualized on Red Hat without the need to install backup clients on each virtual machine. Special disaster recovery procedures are no longer required. RTOs and RPOs can easily be fulfilled. One key advantage of the data protection platform is the optional command line interface that enables highly customized administration of the backup and restore processes in an enterprise environment. Backup and restore specifications of various database and application vendors can be fulfilled by installing SEP’s industry-leading portfolio of certified backup agents.
Scott Herold, Product Manager for Red Hat Virtualization Business said, “As organizations are looking for modern, more flexible and more cost-effective virtualization solutions to form the cornerstone of their hybrid cloud deployments, adoption of open source virtualization solutions like Red Hat Virtualization has grown. Because of the important role virtualization plays, backup plays a critical role. With a strong ecosystem of complementary solutions like the SEP backup solution, available with the launch of Red Hat Virtualization 4, customers can have access to a hybrid solution that can help them improve data protection.”
SEP has been a technology partner of Red Hat, the world’s largest provider of open source software solutions, for many years and won the Red Hat ISV Partner of the Year Award in 2010. The SEP backup solution can protect heterogeneous IT environments for a broad variety of platforms and significantly reduce the amount of backup storage by using SEP’s highly efficient Si3 inline deduplication solution, regardless of the backup storage technology.
“Once again, our long-term collaboration with Red Hat has led to a great solution,” said Georg Moosreiner, CEO of SEP. “We are thrilled to offer a comprehensive backup solution that supports the latest version of Red Hat Virtualization and enables customers to meet their RPO’s and RTO’s. This integration will give enterprises the opportunity to process business-critical data in virtual environments, reducing capital and operating costs.”
