Fujitsu’s newly-innovated, extended line-up of ETERNUS AF S3 all-flash arrays and ETERNUS DX S5 hybrid storage systems. Designed to support the new paradigms of digitalization, this new generation of storage systems is performance-optimized to easily manage the immense data growth, always-on applications and complex workloads of the digital age while offering the greatest storage efficiency to keep costs at a minimum.
With the introduction of two all-new storage solutions – the entry-level all-flash ETERNUS AF150 S3 and the enterprise-grade, midrange hybrid storage system ETERNUS DX900 S5 – Fujitsu further expands its extensive storage portfolio to meet the needs of any data center environment, delivering the right architecture for all data requirements and business demands.
An ideal solution for smaller businesses and branch offices, ETERNUS AF150 S3 entry-level all-flash array combines cutting-edge storage features and performance at an affordable price. Optimized for ultra-low response times this storage system can work with data volumes of up to 92 TB.
The ETERNUS AF150 S3 is easy to deploy and manage and is fully compatible with all other storage systems of the ETERNUS family. This allows customers to seamlessly grow their storage infrastructures and operate several storage solutions across their network through one unified management interface.
The second newcomer, ETERNUS DX900 S5, fills a gap at the top end of the market as an enterprise-grade, midrange hybrid storage system that delivers high performance at an attractive price. Scalable up to four controllers, it provides enough scalability for most use cases, storing up to 70 Petabytes and easily achieves million-level IOPS as confirmed in the latest results published by the Storage Performance Council. Hardware-accelerated compression means it delivers unmatched efficiency, while easy storage replication, mirroring and transparent failover gives customers full peace of mind when it comes to reliable business data continuity.
Management of all new and existing ETERNUS storage solutions is straightforward thanks to Fujitsu ETERNUS SF Storage Management Software. ETERNUS SF offers powerful monitoring features through an intuitive user interface, including shared functions – such as replication, migration and the operation of storage clusters – across the all-flash and hybrid systems, all delivered with simple and transparent licensing.
To help customers maximize their storage investment, Fujitsu has created a new guarantee program(4) for the new ETERNUS product generations, which includes commitments to zero downtime, data reduction, and 100% SSD availability as well as covering customer satisfaction and continued support for customers’ expansion and growth.
Kenichi Sakai, SVP, Head of System Platform Business Unit at Fujitsu, said: “The relentless digitalization of everything creates countless new data sources, as well as new applications to turn the masses of data into business value. According to IDC, by 2025 the global data sphere will grow to 175 trillion gigabytes, with much of this residing in enterprises. We have addressed the challenge of storage system by creating one seamless product family for business-critical data that can meet any business requirement for performance, capacity and cost. What’s more, we are so confident in the performance of our ETERNUS products that we are now offering a comprehensive guarantee program for our customers.”
