ETERNUS Storage White Papers

Our ETERNUS® Storage White Papers provide additional technical details and other useful product information.

Network Convergence and Data Center Bridging (DCB) in VMware vSphere environments As Local Area Network (LAN) and Storage Area Network (SAN) technology has matured, it has become very beneficial to merge them into a common technology. They are converging under Ethernet based technology and protocols. This paper addresses some of the benefits of this convergence, as driven by virtualization and technology advancements. Some performance comparisons and Best Practices on how to enable convergence through iSCSI with Data Center Bridging (DCB) under VMware® environments are presented.

ETERNUS Extreme Cache Performance and Use
The Extreme Cache feature provides the ETERNUS® DX500 S3 and DX600 S3 Storage Arrays with an effective flash based performance accelerator for regions of hot data within the storage array. The Extreme Cache expands the primary cache memory within the controllers in the storage arrays providing very quick access to a much larger portion of the data than is typically available, due to limitations in the primary cache size.

Fujitsu RAID Protection and Drive Failure Fast Recovery
RAID protection is a key part of all ETERNUS® Storage Array products. Choices of the level chosen to meet customer application requirements involve evaluating a number of aspects of the application demands. The considerations of these aspects are addressed in this paper, including operation in degraded mode, time to recover to a protected state, and time to restore to the fully configured state. The introduction of the Fast Recovery feature changes some of the long held assumptions about the use of the different RAID level choices and provides recovery to a protected state in a small fraction of the time of other choices.

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) White Paper: Improving Backup Effectiveness and Cost-Efficiency with Deduplication
IT professionals responsible for backup and recovery operations are seeking ways to make processes automated, faster, more reliable, and less costly via the use of disk-to-disk-to-disk (D2D2D) or disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) strategies. Inserting disk in the backup data path is a sure way to improve performance and reliability and reduce operator intervention. However, to affect cost, deduplication will be a necessary component of a disk-to-disk (D2D) solution. Fujitsu has a portfolio of D2D offerings with data deduplication that can introduce efficiency and improve the economics of data protection. This paper focuses on the ETERNUS CS800 solution, Fujitsu’s new file-, OST-, and VTL-interface disk target solution with deduplication, that is ideally suited for midmarket organizations (companies with 100-999 employees) and remote and branch offices (ROBOs) of larger organizations seeking to reduce or eliminate their dependence on physical tape media for tape backup.
