Direct Attached Storage: ETERNUS JX60

Storage Subsystem

As capacity requirements often exceed the storage capacity that servers can offer, a passive extension of server storage is a good option. The Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS JX storage subsystems, which are directly attached to a server, support mixed disk drive configurations with easy handling and low investment costs. When extending storage capacity, they are the perfect choice for environments with only one server or with two servers for high availability in clustered configurations. ETERNUS JX systems offer basic data protection with built-in resilience and they can be managed using standard Fujitsu ServerView software.

The Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS JX60 is a high-density, easy-to-use storage subsystem.
A passive subsystem extension is a cost-effective solution as capacity requirements often exceed the internal storage capacity of a server. However, data growth is outpacing the increase in disk capacity and thus more disks are needed requiring more rack space. This is why the Fujitsu Storage subsystem ETERNUS JX60 provides high disk capacity in a minimum space. Up to 60 low-cost 3.5 inch Nearline SAS hard disk drives can be hosted in an enclosure of only four rack height units. A total capacity of 960 Terabytes can be delivered by attaching up to four enclosures directly to a server with a small, space-saving footprint.

Key features Benefits
Quality and reliability
  • Direct Attached Storage (DAS) for Intel-based servers with 6 Gbit/s SAS connection
  • Up to 240 large capacity Nearline SAS disk drives enlarge storage capacity by up to 960 Terabyte
  • Reliable storage capacity for biggest data volume
Innovation and flexibility
  • Components like hot plug disk drives and power supply modules can be replaced while the server is running
  • The redundant hot-plug power supply units can be connected with phase redundancy via separate power lines.
  • Optimum and secure cooling of the drives is ensured by two independent fans in each power supply unit
  • Standardized 3.5” PRIMERGY server disk drives are used and can be organized in different RAID levels
  • Continuous operation during flexible drive replacements
  • Mix and match of disk drives
Ease of use
  • Status of the components is signalized by LED displays and lightemitting diodes
  • Drive extension is completely managed by the server and can be used in all usage scenarios with certified PRIMERGY servers
