The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S3 disk storage system is purpose-built for large enterprises and ideal for the data management of business-critical core applications and the consolidation of large-scale data centres. Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S3 provides non-disruptive capacity upgrades with up to 1536 disk drives, just by adding disks or complete drive enclosures. Performance in the million IOPS range is provided by configurations based on 2 to 8 controllers and a maximum of 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 optimisation 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 and automated 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. Highest availability and seamless business continuity is guaranteed by redundant interconnections to the storage array and internal redundant components and completed by transparent fail-over which ensures uninterrupted operation in case of an outage.
The massively scalable Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX8000 S3 series, the flagship systems of the ETERNUS DX family are purpose-built for behemoth data centres which require outstanding storage performance and huge capacity paired with enterprise-class resiliency and 99.9999% availability. Its automated quality of service management features guarantee maximum system utilisation and contribute to a fast ROI.
It is the perfect solution when consolidating data in OLTP and large-scale databases, file services, business-critical applications and business analytics / big data – all into one system. It provides ample headroom for any demanding virtualisation environments. Extensive high-availability and disaster recovery capabilities make ETERNUS DX8000 S3 the ideal storage systems for all business-critical data and fit perfectly in private and public cloud environments of large-scale enterprises and service providers.
