In the latest Storage Performance Council's (*Note 1) SPC Benchmark-1 (*Note 2), evaluating IOPS, $/IOPS and response times, Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX600 S3 has reigned supreme over all hybrid dual controller midrange storage systems (July 2014).

With this breath taking result ETERNUS DX600 S3 has proven to be the ideal system to serve data intensive applications such as demanding database systems, real time analytics and big data environments, online transaction scenarios with a high amount of users and all types of internet applications. IOPS performance directly influences the amount of virtual machines which can be hosted on a storage system enabling ETERNUS DX to constantly increase the VM density and to be an ideal storage consolidation platform for VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V usage. Furthermore a leading IOPS performance and sub-milliseconds response time deliver large headroom in areas where exponential data growth can be anticipated thus extending the lifetime of the system and reducing migration costs.

The benchmark has also shown that the hybrid system is capable of running a large amount of SSDs efficiently without creating internal bottlenecks in order to minimize latency. With a response time of only 0.61 milliseconds under full load it can cover a large share of high performance data application areas relieving many customers from investing in extremely expensive special purpose all-flash arrays

This is the 2nd benchmark record in row Fujitsu achieved with its unified ETERNUS DX systems after taking the lead in entry level systems with the ETERNUS DX200 S3 in December 2013. Both systems achieved the all-time-best response times ever measured under the conditions of the SPC-1.


The test results are published on the Storage Performance Council (SPC) web site as of the 25th of July 2014, and will be officially accepted after the 60-day peer review period. See referenced documents for complete benchmark results (Submission Identifier A00146);

The SPC-1 test program was achieved with only SSDs configured on the ETERNUS DX600 S3 system. SSDs were supplied through collaboration with HGST.

Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX200 S3 - Entry level storage with enterprise class performance

January 28, 2014

In the latest Storage Performance Council's(*Note 1) SPC Benchmark-1™(*Note 2) , evaluating IOPS, $/IOPS and response times, Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX200 S3 has reigned supreme over all dual controller midrange storage systems, and even some multi controller enterprise class storage systems (January 2014).

For companies faced with a limited storage budget, Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX200 S3 allows them to take advantage of outstanding performance at a low cost. Particularly for small and medium sized businesses (SMB), the entry class storage solution can help gain greater business insight and strengthen market competiveness. Leveraging functionality in the new ETERNUS DX system to prioritize specific business processes such as; online transaction processing (OLTP), business intelligence applications and real-time big data analytics, it can deliver the same performance levels as higher class solutions.

The high response time and throughput architecture of Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX S3 forms a powerful platform, even for mission-critical environments where large database processing and OLTP is required. Moreover the ETERNUS DX drives advantages in both speed and costs for server consolidation and/or virtualization (server or VDI) environment which typically requires higher performance. For enterprises planning similar business improvements in the future, the unmatched performance of Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS DX S3 ensures investment in additional resources is not necessary.

With remarkable scalability and flexibility in both capacity and connectivity, the ETERNUS DX family caters to the IT requirements of businesses of all sizes, irrespective of budget limitations.
