For environments with multiple open systems and virtualised infrastructures
Fujitsu has come up with a new modular architecture Eternus DX Enterprise Disk Storage System that can be flexibly expanded to meet ever-changing business needs.
‘The Flexible Data Safe’ concept in Eternus DX8700 S2 systems allows a higher level of automation for storage tiering, including support for different disk types and capacities that ensure an optimum service level in dynamic and fast-changing environments.
Customers can minimize initial costs by starting with a system as small as two controller modules (CM) and four drive enclosures (DE) and then scale, as they require, up to eight CM and 3,072 disk drives.
Each Eternus DX module has a new minimized, high density form factor that fits into a standard 19-inch datacenter rack.
Data protection features are enhanced with the introduction of self-encrypting disk drives.
Fujitsu’s transparent license model allows changes to be made over time without hitting price-increase thresholds that require the purchase of further unplanned licenses, and for which often no budget remains.
Eternus DX software licenses have a fixed price, based on the number of controllers used, instead of more usual variable data capacities.
