While processor and network speeds have kept pace with the demands of ever faster applications and continual data growth, traditional hard drive (HDD) storage technology has fallen behind. Fujitsu is addressing this with the new ETERNUS AF all-flash storage systems, using Solid State Drives (SSDs).
Customers choosing ETERNUS AF also benefit from cost-savings – firstly thanks to built-in data deduplication and compression technologies which ensure that the Fujitsu ETERNUS AF system automatically optimizes data volume, helping reduce SSD capacity requirements by an average factor of five. This is achieved through inline deduplication that identifies and discards duplicates, then compresses data by removing all redundant information. In addition, all-flash systems take up less space in a data center and consume less energy for power and cooling, in comparison to traditional disk arrays.
At launch, Fujitsu is offering two all-flash models. The top-of-the-range ETERNUS AF650 boasts up to 256GB maximum system memory and a maximum of 96 SSD drives, providing capacities of 368TB raw, 1843TB effective capacity. A second model, the ETERNUS AF250, offers 64GB of system memory, up to 24 SSD drives and 92TB raw / 460TB effective capacity. Calculations are based on an estimated data deduplication and compression ratio of 5:1.
