ETERNUS DX8700 S2
The Enterprise Storage System for Large Data Centers
The ETERNUS DX8700 S2 enterprise disk storage system, with Intel® Xeon® processors and multi-dimensional scalability, is purpose-built for large enterprises. Enterprises are no longer forced to accurately anticipate future capacity demand levels and to select a specific high-end model with a fixed data-capacity range. ETERNUS DX8700 S2 offers a unique modular architecture that can be flexibly expanded according to business needs. With minimum initial costs customers can start with a two controller module system and four drive enclosures. Maximum performance with up to 128 front-end ports for host connectivity can be obtained easily by scaling up to eight controller modules. In order to obtain simultaneous connection to different network types, FC, FCoE and iSCSI host interfaces can operate in mixed configurations.
Software licenses have a fixed price, based on the number of controllers used instead of the more usual variable data capacities. This transparent licensing model allows gradual capacity upgrading to a maximum of 3,072 disk drives without resulting in price increases caused by having to purchase non-planned licenses. Fujitsu’s Flexible Data Management concept enables a higher level of automation for storage tiering, including support for SAS, Nearline SAS and SSD drive options and capacities that ensure an optimum service level in dynamic and fast-changing environments as well as reducing the overall total cost of storage. The challenges caused by data exposure protection are addressed using innovative Self-Encrypting Drives (SED).
System robustness with redundant interconnections to the storage array, internal redundant components and local data copy options ensure high availability for today’s non-stop business. Remote replication to a second ETERNUS DX storage device protects all valuable data assets across the entire enterprise against site outages.
