Det er svært at spå – særligt om fremtiden, og det betyder, at mange virksomheder har svært ved at vurdere, hvad deres behov for datastorage vil være på sigt. Fujitsu tilbyder nu muligheden for at starte i det små og lade datakapaciteten udbygge i takt med at kravene til forretningen vokser. Det betyder, at man som virksomhed ikke længere er tvunget til at skulle forudse sine storagebehov, og at man dermed slipper for at skulle forpligte sig til en forudbestemt datakapacitet, som kan vise sig at være enten for lille eller for stor. Nu er det i stedet muligt at vurdere og udbygge løbende.
Systemet fra Fujitsu ETERNUS DX 8700 S2 Enterprise Disk Storage System er opbygget i moduler, som kan udvides i takt med, at behovet for storage vokser. Systemet offentliggøres i dag på Storage Networking World Europe i Frankfurt.
”Fujitsu har udviklet ETERNUS DX-familien på baggrund af 40 års erfaring i storage-udvikling og med hjælp fra over 1.000 dygtige storage-ingeniører. Det er med til at positionere Fujitsu som en af de førende leverandører på markedet – også i et globalt perspektiv. ETERNUS DX-konceptet leverer nemlig omkostningseffektivitet og stor fleksibilitet inden for high-end-systemer,” siger Erik Roesgaard, Product Manager hos Fujitsu.

The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 rewrites the rules by making the leap from monolithic to modular architecture, while also guaranteeing the mission-critical levels of reliability and performance demanded by enterprises. As a result, customers can avoid the disruption of unplanned change while tangentially reducing upfront investment.
Fujitsu is addressing exactly the problem of managing enterprise storage data growth with its latest generation ETERNUS DX8700 Enterprise Disk Storage System, introducing a modular architecture that can be flexibly expanded to meet ever-changing business needs. Officially announced today (November 2, 2011) at Storage Networking World Europe, the new Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700S2is purpose-built for environments with multiple open systems, and virtualized infrastructures. This ETERNUS DX system brings mission-critical reliability and performance to the fore, without unnecessary expense on upfront investment.
‘The Flexible Data Safe’ concept means 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.
Enabling ETERNUS customers to accurately estimate and control costs as they grow – with no hidden extras – 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.
New features in ETERNUS DX8700 S2 system include Fujitsu’s Flexible Data Management concept allowing 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. Data throughput speeds are now 300 percent faster and Fujitsu has certified more connectable host systems. Finally, data protection features are enhanced with the introduction of self-encrypting disk drives.
Says Kazuhiro Igarashi, President of the Storage Systems Unit at Fujitsu Limited. “Fujitsu has evolved the ETERNUS DX Family, building on our 40 years of experience in storage development and the skills of over 1,000 storage engineers to position Fujitsu as the challenger in the top-league of the global disk storage market. ‘The Flexible Data Safe’ concept enables the Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 to deliver unmatched flexibility and cost efficiency for growth in the high-end data center class of systems.”
Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 will be generally available globally in February 2012. Pricing varies by configuration and country.
