Fujitsu Protects Enterprises and Mid-range Customers with ETERNUS CS8000 Unified Backup and Archive Appliance

juni 06, 2014

Fujitsu today announces special enhancements for the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS8000 to help organizations achieve higher efficiency and greater availability in their backup and archive environments. The latest version of the ETERNUS CS8000 includes an automated and integrated backup for archive and second-tier file storage data, making it easier to protect this information without the need for an additional backup software. New infrastructure components extend market-leading performance levels to more than 150 TB/h – a tenfold lead on key competitors1 – while simultaneously reducing costs. Now large enterprises and mid-range customers can achieve higher overall performance with faster connections to meet their challenging business requirements.

Based on the Fujitsu principle of providing business-centric storage solutions, the ETERNUS CS8000 can align resources based on business requriements, vital today to react to data growth and IT service-level challenges. This flexible appliance allows highly specialized solutions for backup purposes, second-tier file storage and archive scenarios, as well as the consolidation of complex backup and archive environments in one unified data-protection appliance. Its scale-out architecture – robustly extending from seven terabytes to 22.2 petabytes – helps organizations to deal even with enormous data growth, as there is no need to buy an additional backup storage system if the backup amount grows – just add the required capacity or performance component to ETERNUS CS8000.

Often, data that is stored on an archive is not part of the backup process, leaving it unprotected. In addition to comprehensive disaster recovery concepts, ETERNUS CS8000 now plugs this gap by including an integrated, automated backup for the archive and second-tier file storage data. Benefits include increased availability levels, and protecting organizations’ archive data, against user errors for example. Compared to using external backup software to protect archives, which can be complex and resource intensive to manage, the ETERNUS CS8000 integrated solution cuts the cost and management effort while additionally reducing capacity requirements.

To provide high-end enterprise-class functionality also to mid-range datacenters, the entry model ETERNUS CS8200 is now enriched with some functionalities which had been restricted to the upper models in the past. There is now a new NAS entry model available for archive and second-tier file storage purposes including integrated backup.

Hans-Dieter Wysuwa, Executive Vice President, Service Platform, Global Product Business, Fujitsu “While in the past, archiving wasn’t considered essential, today organizations are seeing the benefit of being able to move data from online storage into an archive. Fujitsu’s enhanced ETERNUS CS8000 provides an optimized storage system for this purpose, and helps organizations to cut costs. Organizations can free up space on their production storage systems, confident that their archived data is protected and available whenever it is needed.”

Availability
The new ETERNUS CS8000 is globally available since June 1, 2014. The new enhancements come with a service package which is free for all ETERNUS CS8000 customers with a valid maintenance contract.
