Storage Subsystems: ETERNUS JX

ETERNUS – Storage Subsystems

As capacity requirements often exceed the storage capacity that servers can offer, a passive extension of server storage is a good option. The Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS JX storage subsystems, which are directly attached to a server, support mixed disk drive configurations with easy handling and low investment costs. When extending storage capacity, they are the perfect choice for environments with only one server or with two servers for high availability in clustered configurations. ETERNUS JX systems offer basic data protection with built-in resilience and they can be managed using standard Fujitsu ServerView software.


The FUJITSU JX40 S2 DAS Subsystem is a reliable and highly performant easy-to-use storage subsystem. As Direct Attached Storage (DAS), it extends the storage capacity of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers through a fastest 12 Gbit/s SAS connection by up to 288 Terabyte with the maximum of 4 enclosures.

A passive subsystem extension is a cost effective solution as capacity requirements sometimes exceed the internal storage capacity of a server. However, data growth is constantly outpacing the increase in storage device capacity thereby requiring more storage devices and more rack space. This is why the FUJITSU JX60 S2 DAS Subsystem provides high storage device capacity in a minimum space. Mix and match up to 60 low-cost 3.5 inch or 2.5 inch Nearline SAS hard disk drives in a 4U rack enclosure, delivering a capacity of up to 600 Terabytes (2.5 inch drives can be installed in the same slot as the 3.5 inch drives using 3.5 inch mounting frames that are provided). A total capacity of 1,200 Terabytes per 8U rack space can be delivered by attaching up to 2 enclosures directly to a server with a small, space-saving footprint.
