Fujitsu today announces worldwide availability from June 1, 2011 of the second generation of its ETERNUS DX disc storage systems called ETERNUS DX S2, with the extension of Fujitsu’s ‘Flexible Data Safe’ concept for unlimited data growth and rock solid data protection.

Managing the growth in business critical data is one of the major IT challenges for organisations in the digital age. With data becoming the currency of business, storage infrastructure must keep pace with this development. Under its ‘Flexible Data Safe’ concept, Fujitsu ETERNUS storage systems have been enhanced to manage the rapid and potentially u

Fujitsu also offers organisations the assurance that their disc-based storage systems will deliver on the highest business continuity and data integrity requirements, while eliminating performance and bandwidth bottlenecks. Importantly, ETERNUS systems are efficient in energy consumption, minimise floor space and simplify management, while delivering the flexibility for future capacity growth.nexpected growth that will occur in a fully digitised society.


Under the banner of the ’Flexible Data Safe’ concept, Fujitsu launches the new ETERNUS DX S2 disc storage systems to keep all data assets safe and to deliver the flexibility to meet the key requirements of current and future enterprise needs:

  • Flexible data management is at the heart of the new generation. Unified management, provided by new ETERNUS SF software, controls the whole ETERNUS DX disc storage family, further reducing administration effort and maximising efficient operation. A flexible mix or exchange of models within the product family can be conducted at a minimised cost of change. The fastest disc storage system*1 has now been designed to become even faster in terms of throughput and I/O performance to ensure flexible scalability for future requirements. Green storage functionality minimises power consumption and lowers floor-space requirements, while increasing the flexibility to position systems within datacentres that are already tightly packed. Compatibility and integration with virtualisation standards allow a seamless integration into the latest server landscapes.
  • Enterprise-proven data safety capabilities ensure business continuity at an affordable price, even for smaller businesses. Data safety is guaranteed thanks to built-in data integrity such as pre-emptive detection and elimination of hardware failures, as well as system cross-checks. To protect sensitive data from unauthorised access even at the end of the system’s lifetime, for example during recycling, encryption technologies are an integrated part of the system architecture.

“Businesses of all sizes need to be able to trust that their IT purchases solve today’s problems, while being well positioned to meet tomorrow’s challenges,” said Kazuhiro Igarashi, president of the Storage Systems Unit, Fujitsu Limited. “Based on the ‘Flexible Data Safe’ concept, ETERNUS DX S2 disc storage systems provide a flexible solution for all usage scenarios in small, large, traditional and cloud based environments and deliver the highest levels of data safety.”

For customers looking at the bigger picture, ETERNUS DX S2 fits into Fujitsu’s extensive IT infrastructure portfolio and cloud portfolio which offers holistic and certified solutions built using servers, storage devices, networking, software and services. ETERNUS DX S2 helps customers answer tomorrow’s questions today by providing business continuity, powerful applications, ease of management, and growth - whatever the business scenario.
