Seagate said earlier today it has improved the performance characteristics of its new E-Vault hybrid backup solutions, with a four-times speed boost and up to five times the storage capacity.

To be sure, Seagate's new E-Vault hybrid backup system uses on-premises appliances storing data locally and sending the rest to a public cloud service.

With this new update, Seagate is signalling the IT industry that it’s strongly focussed on getting a strong percentage of the data protection market.

This makes sense since it would involve storing data on tens of thousands of its disk drives and JBOD enclosures.

But now it appears that it’s taking on virtually everybody in the data backup segment, from Acronis through to Symantec, EMC and IBM, with the belief that hybrid backup systems and recovery is the way to go these days.

Whether it will evolve by adding file sharing, more VM-level services like cross-hypervisor conversion, and analytics of its stored data is open for debate, however.

For now, just getting a fair share of the total daily stream of data pumped out to backup targets would be good news for Seagate's management team.

E-Vault Backup and Recovery Software and Cloud Backup and Recovery Services agents get up to 400 percent speed improvement for backup, restore and replication.

The software can now handle read speeds of up to 6 TB of compressed data per hour on a single module.

Additionally, a backup image can now scale up to 2 PB, it being 40 TB before we’re told.

There is a new Backup and Recovery Private Cloud scale-out offering for managed service providers which can scale up to 1 PB in two racks of Tier 1 storage and 2 PB in one rack of Tier 2 storage.

Seagate said it “supports multi-tenancy and delivers speed, virtually unlimited scale, and high availability.

Seagate said its Data Management Services can automatically analyze data usage and suggests the most cost-effective storage tier for data, bearing in mind compliance requirements, policy enforcement and data governance concerns.

The data protection software and the Backup and Recovery Private Cloud will “be delivered by Seagate by the end of August, its value added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs) to customers from small and medium sized businesses up through large enterprises for private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.”
