Storage Subsystems: ETERNUS JX
ETERNUS – Storage Subsystems
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 JX40 S2 DAS Subsystem is a reliable and highly performant easy-to-use storage subsystem. It extends the storage capacity of FUJITSU PRIMERGY servers through a fastest 12 Gbit/s SAS connection. FUJITSU JX40 S2 subsystem provides high storage capacity with the flexibility to mix and match up to 24 x2.5" or 12 x3.5" SAS/ Nearline SAS HDDs or SSDs in a compact 2U enclosure. By cascading 4 enclosures, it can provide support up-to 96 x 2.5" or 48 x 3.5" disk drives with a maximum capacity of 737 TB (SSD with cascading). It is integrated with FUJITSU Software ServerView Suite for easy management and control. It is ideal for small and mid-range businesses looking for high performance, low footprint storage solutions. The most common workloads include storage virtualization, file servers, backup devices etc.
FUJITSU JX60 S2 DAS Subsystem provides high storage device capacity in a 4U Enclosure. It can support up to 60 x 3.5 inch disk drives, delivering a capacity of up to 720 Terabytes (2.5 inch devices can be installed in the same slot as the 3.5 inch devices using 3.5 inch mounting frames that are provided). A total capacity of 1,440 Terabytes can be delivered by attaching up to 2 enclosures directly to a server. It is integrated with FUJITSU Software ServerView Suite for easy management and control. It is ideal for enterprises looking for high capacity storage solution including virtualization, Microsoft Exchange server or HPC workloads etc.
