Direct Attached Storage: ETERNUS JX40

Storage Subsystem

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 Storage ETERNUS JX40 is a reliable and innovative easy-to-use storage subsystem. As Direct Attached Storage (DAS), it extends the storage-capacity of Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY servers through a fastest 6 Gbit/s SAS connection by up to 115 Terabyte with the maximum of 3 enclosures. With a height of only two units per shelf, the ETERNUS JX40 subsystem meets the requirements for a compact design with 2.5 inch mixable SAS and SATA hard disk drives in 19-inch rack infrastructures.
