Munich, October 30, 2012 – Fujitsu today announces a new flash-storage strategy and the extension of its portfolio to serve customers requiring the highest I/O performance. The company is entering into an agreement with Violin Memory to resell its high-speed all-flash-array Violin 6000 systems to customers requiring highest I/O performance and lowest latency. The new partnership extends Fujitsu’s offerings to deliver the right solution for dealing with applications where storage performance has a high impact on the overall response time.
As data creation and use continues to grow exponentially, extreme storage performance is needed to avoid system bottlenecks, and deliver huge amounts of storage data at high speed.
The announcement is part of Fujitsu’s threefold strategy to deliver flash storage technologies to significantly boost overall performance. Firstly, Fujitsu enabled the combination of highly-scalable capacity with high performance, introducing SSDs and large cache memory capacities of its industry-benchmark-leading ETERNUS DX disk-based storage systems. Further cache-size increases, and resulting performance premium, will be achieved in 2012.
The second step was the additional acceleration of performance for specific workloads, such as VMware and databases, through the integration of PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) flash-card technology from Fusion IO into Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers. By introducing ioTurbine and DirectCache, the Fusion IO card can be used as a cache for the ETERNUS DX RAID arrays.
This third extension means that customer scenarios requiring extreme read/write storage performance – including large databases, large server and desktop virtualization environments, demanding business analytics and big data – are now served with the addition to the Fujitsu portfolio of Violin 6000 systems. These scenarios require all-flash storage arrays specifically designed for performance by design.
