Fujitsu ETERNUS Hybrid System Outshines many Enterprise Arrays and Purpose-built All-flash Alternatives, According to New SPC-1 Benchmarks

 

Stockholm, August 22, 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.

Pricing and availability

The full range of ETERNUS DX S3 systems and ETERNUS SF16 management software are globally available, sold directly and via Fujitsu Channel Partners. Prices vary depending on configuration. All ETERNUS DX S3 systems are easy to manage and share the same flexible family architecture, providing investment protection and offering extensive scalability, thanks to the ability to seamlessly upgrade to bigger models within the range. In addition, the latest release of ETERNUS SF software introduces new system management functionality for customers deploying the previous generation of Fujitsu ETERNUS DX systems.

Notes to editors

1.  The Storage Performance Council (SPC) is a vendor-neutral standards body focused on the storage industry. It created the first industry-standard performance benchmark targeted at the needs and concerns of the storage industry. SPC benchmarks provide a rigorous, audited and reliable measure of performance. Further information is available online at http://www.storageperformance.org

  • Fujitsu subscribes to SPC Benchmark testing as a valid and independent way for customers to judge performance results http://www.storageperformance.org/specs
  • The SPC Benchmark 1 test program is designed to simulate business critical applications processing many complex transactions. Pseudo-operational workloads of Online Transactions (OLTP), database operations, and mail systems are recreated to measure random access read/write performance.

2.  With the latest SPC Benchmark 1 from the Storage Performance Council, Fujitsu ETERNUS DX600 S3 has beaten all mid-range Hybrid Dual Controller Arrays and also some multi-controller enterprise class storage systems in terms of IOPS, $/IOPS and response time.

  • With a response time of 0.61milliseconds at 100 percent load the ETERNUS DX600 S3 achieved the highest scores ever in the history of the SPC-1 benchmark.
  • As it is able to run more than 320,000 SPC-1 IOPS, Fujitsu’s midrange system plays in the same league as higher-priced enterprise systems, with a similar level of performance to many all-flash arrays.
  • The dual-controller ETERNUS DX600 S3 offers an outstanding price performance level of US $1.54 / SPC-1 IOPS
