Backups the easy way

Easy Archive stores data in an unchangeable permanent method – Meets or exceeds all legal requirements.

SEP Easy Archive uses WORM* Technology to prevent unintentional loss or deletion of data, as well as unauthorized edits or changes. The predetermined Data Store is always available to authorized users for a pre-specified archival time. Existing data stores and files can be added at any time using WORM technology.


SEP Easy Archive refines NTFS formatted disk drives and Raid Arrays, and can be easily clustered. Computer systems using Windows operating systems and running in virtual environments, i.e. VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix Xen, etc., can be easily added.

SEP Easy Archive is the perfect addition for a SEP sesam installation, providing your enterprise level backups with a full featured archiving solution to meet all legal and government requirements. Using the SEP sesam Data Store, users can decide where data should be stored and when it should be erased. Document Management Software solutions can also easily utilize SEP Easy Archive to find and utilize protected data on secured disk drives.

SEP File-interface Deduplication System

SEP FDS VA (SEP File-interface Deduplication System Virtual Appliance, powered by FalconStor) is a block-level data deduplication and replication solution that provides a space-efficient repository for SEP sesam DataStores. SEP FDS VA can reduce your backup management costs by dramatically reducing (1) your disk storage needs; (2) your data center power consumption (+ air conditioning costs); (3) your dependency on tape; and (4) your off-site tape storage costs by enabling you to achieve longer retention periods on disk, and facilitating replication of your backups to meet off-site requirements.

How it works

During deduplication, the system analyzes blocks of data and determines whether the data is unique or has already been copied to the SEP FDS VA repository. The process then passes only single instances of unique data to the SEP FDS VA repository and replaces each deduplicated file with a stub file, whose function is to point to the repository and is used to retrieve stored data. The SEP sesam Management Interface displays the backed up files in their real format to make the restore process usual simple. A reason for block-level type deduplication instead of a file-based deduplication is that a block-level solution examines small sub-blocks and this is making it far more effective at reducing storage consumption.
