With today's complex IT environments, many companies have implemented clusters to ensure high availability and manageability of critical network resources.  When dealing with mission-critical data, an equally powerful backup solution must be in place to improve business continuity and decrease IT headaches.  Additionally, enterprises have incorporated multiple backup solutions to protect their infrastructure which increases the need for additional resources, training, and costs.

SEP's backup and disaster recovery solution can protect your entire Novell environment with just ONE solution. This is the only software today that allows for full cluster support in both Novell Open Enterprise Server Linux and Novell Open Enterprise Server Netware environments. Fail-over capability and recognition allows for the backup to continue in the event of node loss or failure.

SEP fully backs up NSS volumes including Trustee Rights. With the SEP Restore Wizard, volumes are easily restored with all user permissions if data is lost or destroyed. Additionally, migration from Novell NetWare to OES can be easily achieved by performing a simple backup and restoring to the similar file structure on the Novell OES platform.

Additionally, lengthy backup windows prove to be frustrating, time-consuming, and often result in incomplete backups. SEP's patented Multi-Streaming Technology erases this hassle by facilitating unlimited parallel streams to any hardware of your choice, significantly reducing windows by 50-97%.
