Fujitsu DX200F – All Flash Array
The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200F is the ideal choice for application scenarios with demanding data and performance requirements. Unlike purpose-built expensive all-flash arrays based on special architectures, it features the standard high performance architecture of the ETERNUS DX series.
The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200F delivers an impressive 400,000 IOPS performance with lowest latency even at full load. Thus it offers a solution that resolves all performance issues in critical applications such as – real-time business analytics or VDI environments – without requiring any complicated tuning. Flexible and scalable ready-torun configurations, priced substantially lower than customised flash systems, makes both acquisition and installation affordable, quick and easy.
The fastest servers and network connections in the world are not much help if storage systems cannot read or write data at a rapid pace. Performance-hungry databases, time-consuming data analyses, frequently accessed online applications and virtualized server or desktop environments can lead to storage bottlenecks very quickly.
Solid state drives (SSDs) can increase speed by a factor of 100 or more, and they considerably outperform hard disks. Performance and response issues could be solved immediately if all the data in performance-intensive applications resided on a storage system equipped with SSDs. Although SSDs are more expensive in terms of purchase price, the added cost is offset when they are deployed in environments which require high performance levels.
Temporary solutions based on hard disks can be expensive as well – and their performance is much lower than SSD solutions. Approaches such as investments in dedicated storage systems per application, the distribution of data over as many hard disks as possible, or frequent system tuning are only stop-gap solutions at best. And they usually deliver relatively poor overall storage system utilisation.
Why the Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200F is different
Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX200F in contrary offers a solution which can help immediately solving all the performance problems in business critical applications –without the need of any complicated tuning measures. ETERNUS DX200F is a pre-configured system supplied with 5 – 24 SSDs offering up to 38.4 TByte total capacity. In contrast to very expensive all-flash array solutions based on special architectures, ETERNUS DX200F is based on the proven high-performance standard architecture of the ETERNUS DX series. A comparable ETERNUS DX200 S3 system has achieved convincing performance values* proven by the de facto standard storage industry benchmark SPC-1™ .
Resultantly with Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200F Fujitsu offers a very fast flash-only storage system that covers many application scenarios requiring high data performance at a substantial lower price-point than purpose built flash storage systems.
ETERNUS DX – Business-centric Storage
Combining leading performance architecture with automated quality of service management the Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX series aligns storage resources with business priorities, thus enabling higher system utilization and delivering increased system consolidation capabilities and a faster ROI.
Unified scalable entry-level and midrange systems, a seamless family concept enabling system upgrades and ETERNUS SF, the unified management suite across the product line, reduce operational and migration costs. ETERNUS SF provides enterprise class functionalities in the entry and midrange class and allows flexible disaster recovery concepts for the different model sizes, thus decreasing investment costs.
