Munich, August 21, 2014 – Fujitsu today announces that its mid-range ETERNUS DX600 S3 scalable, unified disk storage systems are the right choice for data intensive applications such as demanding database systems, real-time analytics and big data environments, online transaction scenarios with a high number of users, plus all types of internet applications. As confirmed by the recently published SPC Benchmark 1 from the Storage Performance Council1>, Fujitsu’s latest generation of hybrid dual controller midrange systems, focused on optimizing Business-centric Storage, have again achieved best-in-class benchmark performance (IOPS), price-performance ($/IOPS), and sub-millisecond response times2.
The extended system lifetime of the ETERNUS DX600 S3 and reduced migration costs result from delivering a large headroom in areas where exponential data growth can be anticipated. IOPS performance directly influences the number of virtual machines that can be hosted on a storage system meaning ETERNUS DX can constantly increase VM density and so is an ideal storage consolidation platform for VMware or Hyper-V usage.
Achieving this benchmark also demonstrates that the hybrid system minimizes latency by running a large number of Solid-State Drives (SSDs) efficiently and without creating internal bottlenecks. In addition, many customers no longer need to invest in expensive special-purpose all-flash arrays, as this system achieves a response time of only 0.61 milliseconds under full load it can achieve many high-performance data application objectives.
The test results are published on the Storage Performance Council (SPC) web site as of July 25, 2014, and will be officially accepted after the 60-day peer review period.
