Adva & Sepaton price lists now online

by Robin Harris on Saturday, 24 November, 2007

Who the heck is Adva?
A couple of months ago a commenter asked for pricing info on Adva. I’d never heard of them, but as part of some web site work I checked into them.

Turns out they are a fast-growing German-based company specializing in metro-are optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) of Ethernet. WDM runs multiple optical channels over a single fiber using lasers of different colors. A single fiber can carry many high-speed links.

If you are interested in a disaster-tolerant metro area replication using iSCSI and/or NAS you should check them out. And with their price list online you can get budget numbers without the hassle of calling a salesman.

Sepaton is an enterprise de-dup company
I spoke to Sepaton CTO Micky Sandorfiat SNW. BTW, Sepaton is “no tapes” backwards.

Other work
I’m gradually closing comments to older posts in an effort to discourage comment spam. I also moved the consulting content to my TechnoQWAN LLC web site.

What other price lists would you like to see?
No promises, but that is how I learned about Adva.

I would love to see pricing for Compellent. Their block level RAID with automated tiered storage in very compelling!

The UK’s biggest telco (BT) has been using Adva Optical networking products for metro Ethernet and similar for some years (rebadged, naturally).
They do seem to _just_work_.

I hadn’t heard of Adva until now either. Thanks for the update!
