Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 Disk Storage System
The Flexible Data Safe for Dynamic Infrastructures.[dx8700s2]
The ETERNUS DX8700 S2 enterprise disk storage system, with powerful Intel Xeon processors and multi-dimensional scalability, is purpose built for large enterprises. ETERNUS DX8700 S2 provides non-disruptive capacity upgrades up to 3,072 disk drives, just by adding disks or complete drive enclosures. Maximum performance is provided by configurations based on from 2 to 8 controller units, with maximal 128 front-end ports for host connectivity. For simultaneous connection to different network types, FC, FCoE and iSCSI host interfaces can operate in mixed configurations.
Tiered storage optimization using a range of SAS, Nearline SAS and SSD drive options lowers the overall total cost of storage. The challenges of data exposure protection are addressed by Self- Encrypting Drives (SED). Flexible management across different quality of service profiles, using different drive types for each application scenario, ensures efficient assignment of system resources matched to the performance priorities of different applications.
System robustness with redundant interconnections to the storage array, internal redundant components and local data copy options ensure high availability for today’s non-stop business. Remote replication to a second storage device protects all valuable data assets across the entire enterprise against site outages.
Fujitsu’s second generation of ETERNUS DX disk storage systems, ETERNUS DX S2, are ‘The Flexible Data Safe’ for Dynamic Infrastructures. Enterprise-proven capabilities protect data assets across all types of IT infrastructure. Redundant components, RAID protection and build-in data protection provide the highest system reliability to ensure business continuity is maintained.
ETERNUS DX S2 models are comprehensive disk storage platforms with superior scalability to address the demands of intensive data growth and highest performance. Free choice of modular disk storage and state-of-the-art connectivity across the entire model range delivers maximum configuration flexibility allowing choice in performance and TCO. Data-in-place upgrade options are also available throughout the system’s lifecycle to ensure maximum investment protection.
The unified ETERNUS SF storage management software enables single point administration, easy data protection and efficient operation across the entire ETERNUS DX range. In virtualized IT environments in particular, ETERNUS SF perfectly integrates the powerful ETERNUS DX disk storage with minimal administration effort.
