“The days of ‘DYI’ (Do-it-yourself) virtualized IT infrastructures are coming to an end. With so many facets to manage in converged infrastructures, SMEs today need a reliable all-in-one solution, from a single provider, with storage, server and network all optimized to work together seamlessly. Having quality components is only part of an effective virtualized infrastructure. The quality of service management plays an important role in increasing effectiveness for virtual machines. Fujitsu’s vShape is the solution to address this challenge.”
Marcus Jewell, Vice President of Brocade, EMEA
“Protecting vital corporate data assets and ensuring business services are secure and available at all times is of paramount importance to our customers, and FUJITSU vShape with ETERNUS gives them that confidence. Additionally, while many IT budgets remain tight, ETERNUS DX storage systems and PRIMERGY servers connected through Brocade Fiber Channel switches and vShape with Brocade’s Ethernet switches helps customers to save costs, by allowing them to purchase only what they need now, but scale as their needs evolve. In additionFujitsu supports Brocade’s Ethernet switches, simplifying maintenance when required.”
