Fujitsu Sets New Price/Performance Record in Latest SPC-1 Benchmark with Enhanced Entry-Level Storage System
With the ETERNUS DX200 S4 model, Fujitsu set a new SPC-1 record, as the excellent price/performance ratio of $0.22/IOPS (Input/Output per Second) positions the Fujitsu hybrid storage system as an affordable favorite for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Validating the powerful performance of the ETERNUS, the SPC-1 Benchmark test results confirm that the system achieves ultrafast response times of just 0.59 milliseconds while under full load. The ETERNUS also scores an outstanding IOPS performance above the 300,000 mark.
Fujitsu recently doubled the system capacity of its ETERNUS DX S4 hybrid storage
range, bringing new levels of performance and capacity within easy reach of SMEs and large enterprises looking for storage solutions in branch or remote offices. The ETERNUS DX200 S4 delivers enterprise-class functionality at entry-level system pricing, making it the perfect solution for use in server virtualization, e-mail, databases and business applications as well as centralized, consolidated file services. By choosing ETERNUS, organizations can also benefit from boosted business continuity, thanks to data availability of an amazing 99.9999 percent – representing less than one minute of unplanned downtime per year.
With its powerful features confirmed by the SPC-1 Benchmark, SMEs choosing ETERNUS entry-class storage can truly proceed at full speed into the digital era, since there is no need to upgrade to more expensive storage sytems to meet capacity and performance needs.
Designed to allow buyers to compare system performance between storage vendors, the independent SPC-1 Benchmark evaluates storage systems in the areas of IOPS, price/performance rating ($/IOPS) and response times. Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200 S4 benchmark results
were published on the Storage Performance Council’s website on June 1, 2017.
Notes to editors
1 The SPC-1 benchmark is designed to be vendor/platform independent and applicable across a broad range of storage configuration and topologies. SPC-1 consists of a single workload designed to demonstrate the performance of a storage subsystem while performing the typical functions of business critical applications. Those applications are characterized by predominately random I/O operations and require both queries as well as update operations.
