Flexible data management is at the heart of the new system. Unified management, provided by new ETERNUS SF software, controls the whole ETERNUS DX disk storage family, further reducing administration effort. A flexible mix or exchange of models within the product family can be conducted at a minimised cost of change. The fastest disk storage system has now been designed to become even faster in terms of throughput and I/O performance. Compatibility and integration with virtualization standards allow integration into the latest server landscapes.
Data safety is guaranteed thanks to built-in data integrity such as pre-emptive detection and elimination of hardware failures, as well as system cross-checks. To protect sensitive data from unauthorized access even at the end of the system's lifetime, for example during recycling, encryption technologies are an integrated part of the system architecture.
"Businesses of all sizes need to be able to trust that their IT purchases solve today's problems, while being well positioned to meet tomorrow's challenges," said Kazuhiro Igarashi, President of the Storage Systems Unit, Fujitsu Limited. "Based on the 'Flexible Data Safe' concept, ETERNUS DX S2 disk storage systems provide a flexible solution for all usage scenarios in small, large, traditional and cloud based environments and deliver the highest levels of data safety."
