Overview

SEP sesam generally supports all devices connected via standard interfaces, such as FC, iSCSI, SAS, SATA, SCSI and S3. The device connection must be supported by the hardware vendor and correctly recognized by the operating system.

For example:

  • Single tape drives
  • Tape libraries
  • VTL
  • Storage systems
  • NAS
  • Cloud storage
Note

SEP sesam can use a wide range of devices. We regularly receive reports from our customers that other tape or storage devices not explicitly listed in our harware matrix also work smoothly. Customers should be up to date with the latest OS update level, device driver and firmware levels. For hardware problems with listed and non-listed devices, please contact the hardware vendor first.

The list of supported hardware vendors and devices on this page is only a selection of our most valuable partners and does not claim to be complete. If you have special requests or questions about supported devices, please contact us by email at support@sep.de.

For more information on compatibility, refer to SEP sesam OS and Database Support Matrix.

LTO LTO7
LTO LTO8 Note 1
LTO LTO9 Note 2
Note 1

Hardware encryption for LTO 8 is supported since SEP sesam version 4.4.3.64 with service pack 2019-1 installed.

Note 2

Hardware encryption for LTO 9 is supported since SEP sesam version 5.0. - Jaglion V2.

LTO-9 tapes should be initialized using the software provided by the LTO-9 drive/loader manufacturer before using them in SEP sesam to avoid backup failures or limited or no access to the LTO-9 tapes. For details see Problems with LTO-9 tapes.

Cloud Storage

S3 Any kind of cloud provider is supported as long as it provides a standard S3 (Simple Storage Service) interface (e.g. AWS). An S3 target can be used with SEP sesam as a backup target and requires the usage of SEP Si3 deduplication technology. The configuration and management of Si3 NG in an S3-compatible cloud implementation is similar to the example shown in Backup to S3 Cloud Storage.
Note
As SEP sesam uses a generic S3 interface this could also be used for an SDS appliance (e.g. SES).

VTL

VTL Will be configured in SEP sesam as a real library. Find more details here Loader Configuration.

RDX

RDX Will be configured in SEP sesam as a diskbased VTL. Find more details here RDX Configuration.

DLT

DLT Can be configured in SEP sesam via drive type. Find more details here Drive Configuration.

Object Storage

As of version 5.0.0.x Jaglion, SEP sesam supports S3 as a generic interface based on the new deduplication store Si3 NG.
Some S3 targets are already supported, others have been looked at in more detail (see list below) and are currently being tested.

Vendor Type Status Notea
AWS S3 Public Cloud Supported
Clyso S3 Public Cloud Supported Notec

Nutanix Objects S3 Local Object Storage Supported Noteb
PureStorage FlashBlade S3 Local Object Storage Supported
FAST LTA Silent Brick System S3 Local Object Storage Supported
Vendor Type Status
Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Supported Noteb
Notea

SEP sesam Si3 NG can be used with various S3-compatible cloud implementations. The configuration and management of Si3 NG in an S3-compatible cloud implementation is similar to the example shown in Backup to S3 Cloud Storage. Note, however, that only some S3-compatible cloud environments have already been validated by SEP, while others may not work in some cases. You are solely responsible for using SEP sesam in a non-S3 compatible cloud environment and agree that SEP shall not be responsible for it.

Noteb

Supported as of ≥ 5.0.0.9 Jaglion V2.

Notec

Supported as of ≥ 5.1.0.7 Apollon.
