Fujitsu today announces that the ETERNUS DX8700 S2 has scored the highest ever Storage Performance Council (SPC) Benchmark 2™ results for both processing throughput and price-performance ratio for high-end systems, as of December 3, 2012.*
For industries that require optimum service levels in dynamic and fast-changing environments, often with complex multiple open systems and virtualized infrastructures, Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX8700 S2 delivers the speed and high performance that they need – now attested by the independent SPC-2 world-record benchmark – and with the added benefit that initial capital investments can be kept to a minimum.
This achievement is the latest example of ETERNUS DX continuous success in achieving best-in-class SPC benchmarks. Taken together, these results give companies requiring large-scale projects – whether financial processing, database queries, or server and desktop virtualization – the confidence that Fujitsu ETERNUS disk systems will exceed their challenging requirements.
