Fujitsu, a leading provider of 10-Gigabit (Gb) Ethernet switches and innovative computer products, and RELDATA, a supplier of industry-leading consolidated and unified storage systems, today announced the interoperability of the Fujitsu XG 10 GbE family and RELDATA 10GbE 9240 Unified Storage Solution. This technology integration enables 10Gb iSCSI SAN connectivity, allowing storage customers to eliminate the challenges of rapid storage growth with modular scalability at a low total cost of ownership.

“By implementing the Fujitsu XG family of Ethernet Switches with our 9240 Unified Storage System, customers can enjoy a higher performance storage solution that isn’t burdened by the high cost, complexity, scalability, and heavy licensing requirements of conventional Fibre Channel SAN implementations,” said David Hubbard, chief executive officer, RELDATA. “We’re allowing our customers to take full advantage of scaling IOPS performance and throughput without the typical forklift upgrade required by traditional storage vendors.”

The Fujitsu XG family provides ultra-low and predictable latency switching, allowing RELDATA to deliver a cost-effective, scalable, and manageable storage infrastructure. The net result is a storage solution that serves SAN, NAS, and WAN replication functions from a single storage pool over a high performance 10Gb Ethernet infrastructure to users and application servers.

Ethernet infrastructure is a key enabler to the competitive advantage for an IT organization. With this announcement, customers can scale their IT infrastructure and accommodate ever-increasing amounts of data at a low total cost of ownership. The 10GbE RELDATA 9240 Unified Storage System provides customers with a single feature-rich storage system capable of satisfying their demanding technology requirements. Fujitsu, a company known for its innovative technologies, is the first switch vendor to be certified with the 10GbE RELDATA 9240 Unified Storage System.

“The Fujitsu XG Ethernet Switches enable RELDATA to deliver a highly efficient, effective and scalable storage solution that combines the ease of use of iSCSI with the higher bandwidth associated with 10 GbE. This combination of ease of use and high performance enables RELDATA to deliver storage exactly as it is needed to all applications and users across an organization without the traditional enterprise issues associated with other technologies,” commented Vic Herring, senior director, new products group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc.
