Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 is a data protection appliance that radically consolidates and simplifies backup and archiving in heterogeneous IT environments with mainframes, UNIX and x86 systems. It virtualizes target systems and creates one logical data protection platform. The Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 works as the only target system for the whole environment and in so doing provides more flexibility and higher service levels at less cost.
The basis of the solution is a modular grid architecture. Independent building blocks provide a scale-out platform. The result is a made-to measure solution with great flexibility and scalability. The basic workflow is as follows: Data from the application is sent to Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 and received by the front-end processor node. It is stored in the internal RAID storage. The data can then be further copied to a tape library via the back-end processing node.
Thanks to uniform management of disks, deduplicated disks and tapes flexible service levels regarding capacity, speed and cost can be provided. A modular grid architecture delivers extreme scalability of capacity and performance.
Integrated data mirroring and replication features enable comprehensive disaster recovery concepts. Flexible SAN and Ethernet connectivity as well as VTL, NAS and WORM support allow you to use one system for backup and archiving.
And support for the cloud gateway functionality makes the Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 an ideal and future-proof solution for a unified and optimized data protection infrastructure.
