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 480 Terabytes can be delivered by attaching up to 2 enclosures directly to a server with a small, space-saving footprint.
