Storage Cluster Story

Perfect business continuity with Storage Cluster

Do you need 100% data availability for your databases, virtual machines and websites? Are you searching for secure and automated transparent failover? How about a solution that is even more cost-efficient than storage virtualization?

When it comes to mission-critical data that must be available around the clock, a disaster-proof configuration is an absolute must. However, such configurations are expensive and complex. Many IT organizations and particular SMBs do not feel comfortable managing intricate environments and simply avoid them. This “strategy” is extremely risky because a worst-case scenario can result in staggering outage costs, severe damage to the company image and even legal proceedings along with liability claims.

To prevent such a calamity from happening, the Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX series offer a number of functions that safeguard businesses against disasters without complexity or high costs.

Highlights applying to both scenarios:

  • The failover to the surviving system or the secondary site takes place automatically during a disaster; it is fully transparent to the hosts and applications and does not need any actions by system administrators
  • All application accesses are maintained in real time
  • All systems in the high-availability environment can be run productively during normal standard operations.

ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX systems also support a manual failover process which is required in the event of planned power shutdowns, DR tests and non-disruptive upgrades.

    German Historical Institute in Rome

    Founded in 1888, the German Historical Institute in Rome is one of Germany’s oldest foreign historical organisations. The institute’s activities revolve around historical research and it offers scholars a library collection that stretches from the late medieval period to the end of the Second World War, containing over 157,000 books and 645 present-day journals. Research is at the heart of the work at the German Historical Institute in Rome. Some years ago, work began on building multimedia databases to make the research accessible to the public. These developments forced the institute to think about how it could streamline operations to achieve necessary savings. anks to the support of Fujitsu and ‘Select Expert Partner’ Datamate, the institute embarked on a virtualisation process that allowed it to replace machines that had come to the end of their lifecycles, and lay the foundations for future growth, without having to worry about buying new, specially-made hardware. The project also resulted in better quality cooperation with external partners.Tags: IT infrastructure
