Sydney, September 14, 2011

Fujitsu today introduces the new ETERNUS DX60 S2, a cost-effective entry level storage system that can scale to meet the ever-increasing data management needs of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Providing enhanced performance and rock solid, coupled with flexibility and ease of operation, the upgraded ETERNUS DX60 S2 removes the headaches of managing and storing increasing volumes of essential data at affordable costs.

Developed specially for the needs of SMBs looking to consolidate and centralize data management, and to ensure reliable storage for branch offices, Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX60 S2 can also support entire IT operations, including business critical applications and databases, virtualized servers, and business data warehouses.

ETERNUS DX60 S2 will be mainly sold via Fujitsu’s extensive channel partner network. ETERNUS has grown to become Fujitsu’s most comprehensive storage solution range, benefiting businesses of all sizes. ETERNUS underpins business success through the efficient, reliable and powerful protection and management of all vital data.

Now expandable to 72 TB of storage – enough to record DVD-quality live TV for 72,000 hours, or more than eight years, non-stop – the new ETERNUS DX60 S2 is the entry level economy model within Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX family. Built on 40 years of Fujitsu experience in storage development and based on a consistent architecture and uniform management software, today’s ETERNUS DX disk storage systems form a seamlessly-integrated family, from entry-level to high-end datacenter class, providing assured storage support for efficient business operation and growth.

Simple and straightforward storage management

Storage management, often daunting to small and mid-size companies, is simple and straightforward via Fujitsu’s ETERNUS SF Express management software. This is included free with every ETERNUS DX60 S2 system. The software increases the operational efficiency of installing, configuring and maintaining storage infrastructures. Thanks to close integration with existing IT infrastructure, including host operating systems, multi-vendor servers, network infrastructures and backup solutions, tasks can be performed faster on ETERNUS systems. This significantly reduces administration time and effort.

Says Tosh Kataoka, Director, Japan at Fujitsu Limited: "The new entry level ETERNUS DX60 S2 is the centerpiece of Fujitsu's channel storage program, providing SMBs with tailored systems for their specific needs and delivering major opportunities for our partners. As well as including the ETERNUS DX60 S2 in major promotional initiatives, we will be supporting its success through special training, demo system programs and by giving partners the ability to specify build-to-order systems, reducing delivery times and optimizing channel pricing."

ETERNUS DX60 S2 now expands to 24 RAID disk drives to meet ever changing business needs. The extension of host attachment through iSCSI and SAS connections in addition to Fibre Channel helps maximize customer investments in existing IT resources. Systems are available from October 7th, 2011.
