ETERNUS DX8700 S2 enterprise disk storage system scores highest ever mark in both throughput and price performance ratio for high-end systems.
December 19, 2012
Fujitsu's ETERNUS DX8700 S2 enterprise disk storage system, has broken the Storage Performance Council's (SPC) (*Note 1) Benchmark-2™ record. The SPC-2 performance testing, is conducted to evaluate sequential access where ETERNUS DX8700 S2 has produced by far the best result ever achieved. Reaching an SPC-2 MBPS™ of 16,037.74, ETERNUS DX8700 S2 has now proven its dominance in this category. (*Note 2)
The SPC-2 depicts the aggregated performance of the storage subsystem in large-sized, sequential access environments. The benchmark consists of three distinct workload profiles; large file processing, large database queries and video on demand. Success in this classification follows the recent achievement of ETERNUS DX440 S2 when it topped SPC Benchmark-1™ for dual controller mid-range disk storage systems in August 2012, evidence of the strong ETERNUS DX series performance.
The new SPC-2 Result is posted on the Storage Performance Council (SPC) web site from December 3rd, 2012 and will be officially accepted after a 60-day peer review period.

|Storage Performance Council (SPC) and SPC Benchmarks
The Storage Performance Council (SPC) is a vendor-neutral standards body focused on the storage industry. It has created the first industry-standard performance benchmark targeted at the needs and concerns of the storage industry. SPC benchmarks™ provide a rigorous, audited and reliable measure of performance; http://www.storageperformance.org/join
Fujitsu subscribes to SPC Benchmark™ testing as a valid and independent way for customers to judge performance results; http://www.storageperformance.org/specs
- The SPC-1 benchmark is designed to simulate critical business applications through processing multiple, complex transactions. Pseudo-operational workloads of Online Transactions (OLTP), database operations and mail systems are recreated to measure "random access" read/write performance.
- The SPC-2benchmark is designed to show aggregate performance of the storage subsystem in large-sized, sequential access environments. The program consists of three distinct workload profiles: large file processing, large database queries and video on demand.
