Fujitsu today announced its new line-up of ETERNUS AF S3 all-flash arrays and ETERNUS DX S5 hybrid storage systems.
The new storage systems are the entry-level all-flash ETERNUS AF150 S3 and the enterprise-grade, midrange hybrid storage system ETERNUS DX900 S5.
Designed for smaller businesses and branch offices, ETERNUS AF150 S3 entry level all-flash array combines storage features and performance at an affordable price. Optimized for ultra-low response times this storage system can work with data volumes of up to 92 TB.
The ETERNUS AF150 S3 is easy to deploy and manage and is fully compatible with all other storage systems of the ETERNUS family. This allows Fujitsu's customers to grow their storage infrastructures and operate several storage solutions across their network through one unified management interface.
The second newcomer, ETERNUS DX900 S5, fills a gap at the top end of the market as an enterprise-grade, midrange hybrid storage system that delivers high performance at an attractive price. Scalable up to four controllers, it provides enough scalability for most use cases, storing up to 70 Petabytes and achieves million-level IOPS as confirmed in the latest results published by the Storage Performance Council. Hardware-accelerated compression means it delivers efficiency, while easy storage replication, mirroring and transparent failover gives Fujitsu's customers full peace of mind when it comes to reliable business data continuity.
Alongside the two new products, Fujitsu introduced the third generation of ETERNUS AF all-flash array and the fifth generation of the ETERNUS DX hybrid storage family. Fujitsu has turbo-charged the ETERNUS AF S3 and ETERNUS DX S5lines with more processing power, faster and bigger system memory, NVMe cache in the midrange hybrid storage systems, as well as hardware-accelerated compression and deduplication technology.
Management of all new and existing ETERNUS storage solutions is straightforward thanks to Fujitsu ETERNUS SF Storage Management Software. ETERNUS SF offers monitoring features through an user interface, including shared functions - such as replication, migration and the operation of storage clusters - across the all-flash and hybrid systems, all delivered with simple licensing.
Fujitsu has created a new guarantee program for the new ETERNUS product generations, which includes commitments to zero downtime, data reduction, and 100% SSD availability as well as covering customer satisfaction and continued support.
The new ETERNUS storage systems will be available to order from November 2019 onwards via Fujitsu and its channel partners.
