Fujitsu Simplifies Disaster Recovery with next generation ETERNUS Snapshot Manager
ESM provides peace of mind for organizations of all sizes, through creating and cataloging an unlimited number of application-consistent snapshots of running Fujitsu storage systems. The software supports the all-new Fujitsu ETERNUS AF all-flash
, ETERNUS DX hybrid systems
and ETERNUS Storage Cluster
configurations with deep application and virtual machine integration, and is accessible through an intuitive user interface that runs without the need for scripting.
The new version adds disaster-resilience to data protection by enabling i to replicate array-based snapshots to a second ETERNUS system. These snapshots can be stored on all-flash or hybrid systems, and the process can run either manually, or automatically when using an ETERNUS Storage Cluster1
. Recovery capabilities become more granular thanks to the creation of more frequent, more current copies of production data. The system also provides guaranteed business continuity thanks to automatic transparent failover in Fujitsu ETERNUS Storage Cluster configurations.
Using a single Fujitsu ESM console to centralize and automate the management of application-aware, ‘quick-fire’ snapshots helps organizations simplify disaster recovery and can considerably speed up the restoration of data across physical, virtual and hyper-converged environments. This minimizes system downtime and meets the most stringent business requirements, as well as dramatically reducing the amount of data lost in the case of an unexpected system failure. IDC research shows that nearly a quarter of organizations have suffered unrecoverable data loss within the past three years. The repercussions can be particularly catastrophic for small businesses, as Gartner reports that seven out of ten small firms that experience a major data loss go out of business within a year.
Thanks to simple, array-based licensing, Fujitsu ESM can be used to manage any number of snapshots, with no capacity limit, as the solution is flexible and intended to scale in line with changing backup requirements. Fujitsu ESM software also provides a cost-efficient approach for snapshot-based backup to disk, when combined with the Fujitsu ETERNUS CS200c

Notes to Editors
