Backup and disaster recovery market leader gives further incentive to switch to SEP sesam
Boulder, CO – April 8, 2015 – SEP Software Corp., a leader in backup and disaster recovery software, will be offering a Competitive Upgrade Program to all existing WD Arkeia users so they can switch solutions without major operational or budgetary disruptions. This announcement is in response to many former WD Arkeia resellers turning to SEP to provide their customers with a reliable solution and WD Arkeia’s confirmation that they are no longer accepting new customers. To provide a seamless shift, SEP will match all Arkeia customer’s licensing and renewal costs.
“We are going to offer customers a very smooth transition over to SEP with minimal impact to their daily workflow and budget,” stated Lanai Bayne, Vice President of Business Development for SEP. “Between our Competitive Upgrade Program and the fact that most of our installations only take a few hours to be fully deployed and in production, we can offer a very quick and easy transition to SEP. We look forward to building long lasting partnerships with many new customers.”
SEP’s flagship backup and disaster recovery solution, SEP sesam, offers a single backup and disaster recovery solution for multi-OS environments of any size, including physical and virtual servers. SEP’s newest release of SEP sesam further expands the list of supported platforms, simplifies the ease of use and provides one of the richest product feature sets on the market today.
SEP’s latest release also provides agentless single file restore functionality for NSS volumes on VMware, as well as VMware Instant Restore, a feature that eliminates restore times for virtual machines. These new features add to SEP’s existing support for VMware and provides a valuable component for all enterprise customers. SEP’s agentless technology for VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix automatically displays the virtual hosts/guests in the GUI, simplifying planning, management, and execution of the automated backup processes. Using SEP’s interface in conjunction with Multi-Streaming Technology has enabled SEP to provide the fastest physical and virtual backups in the industry.
“SEP is an ideal replacement for WD Arkeia because it can run in both physical and virtual environments on Windows, Linux or Unix, offers agentless backups for all major virtual platforms, and supports all major databases,” stated Richard Yager, Marketing Manager for SEP, “SEP sesam also provides single message restores for Exchange, GroupWise, Lotus Notes, as well as full, native support for all Novell products. Now is the perfect time to make the switch to SEP sesam.”
In addition, SEP is hardware agnostic, so it can backup to any type of media that is recognized by an operating system, meaning new customers will not have to buy any new hardware to switch to SEP.
