SEP sesam provides a fully functional backup and disaster recovery solution for SUSE Linux. The SEP backup solution has been certified for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server since version 7, released in August 2001. High performance backups and even more important - a fast data recovery, up to a complete bare metal recovery of a server with SEP sesam BSR, are key functions for companies and organizations that depend on the constant availability of their IT infrastructure. Of course the SEP sesam backup server can be run on SUSE Linux. Administrators can also protect their Intel-based machines, IBM Power Server and IBM LinuxONE from data loss.

Red Hat RHEL

SEP has been working successfully in the Linux environment for a long time. For more than 10 years we have been developing backup software in the Linux environment, both for the SEP sesam server as an application on Linux and for the backup of Linux servers. We have had a successful partnership with Red Hat for many years. We are one of the first RedHat Advanced ISV partners in Europe and certified for Red Hat virtualization. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a recommended, stable platform for the SEP sesam server. Classic file backup is supported as well as data backup functions in virtual server infrastructures, VMware or Linux-based virtual infrastructures.
SEP is officially certified for RHEL 8.

Data Protection for Oracle Solutions

Mission critical systems like Oracle solutions need and require a world-class certified data protection solution that provides both data backup and the ability to recover from any disaster. No matter where systems and data are located – they have to be available 24/7. SEP is the life assurance for businesses and organizations worldwide.

SEP sesam online Oracle databse agent

The SEP sesam online agent for Oracle/RMAN integrates Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) with SEP sesam to efficiently back up and restore Oracle databases. Oracle provides a Media Management Layer (MML) for saving Oracle databases to SEP sesam Server. The MML API gives the Recovery Manager (RMAN) access to the backup application.

For Oracle, SEP sesam represents a media management utility. It handles media and devices and loads, unloads and labels media. SEP sesam provides online backup and restore for Oracle target database(s).

RMAN manages the target database (the database containing the control files, data files and optional archived redo logs that are being backed up or restored) and all Oracle server processes on the target database.

SEP sesam Backup for Oracle Linux Virtualization

The full integration of the Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager Backup API into the SEP sesam Hybrid Backup solution ensures consistent backup and recovery of virtual machines (VMs).

SEP sesam Hybrid Backup provides fast and intuitive recovery functions for virtual environments. The integrated solution allows Oracle Linux Virtualization VMs to be backed up consistently without having backup clients installed in each virtual machine.
