ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser

Storage Management Software

ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser 190x190ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser simplifies setup of disk storage systems and the management of ETERNUS DX storage environments. Its ability to manipulate complex storage configurations and settings enables you to implement storage environments with ease and without the need for high-level skills. 

ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser supports stable system operation by providing centralized management for the entire storage environment, including servers and Fibre Channel switches. ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser also provides storage system lifecycle functions, from configuration to maintenance. The resulting improved availability and stable operation will reduce your operation management costs, support Green IT and enable implementation of virtualized IT systems.
