ETERNUS CS800 S4

Fujitsu, the leading ICT solutions and services provider, enables small and mid-size organizations to benefit from data-protection peace-of-mind at an affordable and transparent price, along with the cost advantages offered by closing no doors on environment or back-up medium options. Now available in Hong Kong, the new-generation Fujitsu ETERNUS CS800 data protection appliance enables flexible data growth without high pre-investment, offering smaller organizations comprehensive functionality at a fixed price, plus a seamlessly scalable version for midsize environments.

Making backup and recovery more efficient and reliable, the ETERNUS CS800 is a data protection appliance for backup to disk with deduplication. The deduplication functionality, as well as the replication and path-to-tape software, is included in all versions, at no extra charge, and with no hidden costs -- putting unified data protection within any firm's grasp. The latest deduplication technology reduces capacity requirements by up to 95 percent and by deduplicating the data from all connected host systems, network-bandwidth needs for replication can be reduced by a factor of 20 or more¹.

Customers want to pay for only the capacity they need now, and simply add more as they need it. The Fujitsu ETERNUS CS800 S4 scalable version can comfortably grow in seamless upgrades to 240TB without the hassle of migrating to another model, or experiencing high costs at every growth spurt. The attractive entry version is perfect for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and branch offices of larger companies that need no more than 10 TB, where it enables further consolidation of hardware resources. For the first time, this data protection appliance allows customers to use either or a mix of Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) environments.

The ETERNUS CS800 S4 enables customers to fully utilize all its advantages, while minimizing operational effort and costs, due to close integration with Symantec® NetBackup® and Backup Exec and CommVault® Simpana® backup software. While the ETERNUS appliance consolidates target systems and simplifies their operation, the backup software adds powerful functionality to manage backup processes from the servers to the targets. "Data is a valuable asset. Effectively protecting data is vital to the success of businesses of all sizes – from the smallest to the largest. The new-generation ETERNUS CS800 data appliance empowers our customers across all industries, by providing them with an effective, reliable and affordable way to protect critical business intelligence. ETERNUS acts as the safe for enterprises’ most valuable asset, whether in SAN or NAS environment, and regardless of preferred mix of disk or tape media." said W Y Tsoi, Senior Solutions Manager, Solutions and Services Business of Fujitsu Hong Kong.

As one of the first appliances to support Symantec NetBackup OST with A.I.R. (Auto Image Replication), ETERNUS CS800 S4 simplifies backup to disk to remote locations, and facilitates disaster recovery. The unique ability to load a CommVault Simpana media agent on the appliance also allows customers to write data directly onto the appliance without needing extra server hardware and at reduced network traffic.
