Fujitsu Maximizes Storage Performance with Next-Generation ETERNUS All-Flash and Hybrid Storage Systems

Hybrid ETERNUS DX family enhances capabilities to balance speed, capacity and cost


Fujitsu announced its next generation of ETERNUS AF S2 all-flash storage arrays and ETERNUS DX S4 midrange hybrid systems.

The new storage systems are designed to meet the high-performance requirements for digital business growth, continuity and efficiency, while providing a maximum of interoperability and an easy migration path between hybrid and all-flash storage.

Equipped with larger caches, faster processors, 32 GB fibre channel technology and highly optimized algorithms for utilizing multicore, multithreaded processors, the ETERNUS AF250 S21 and AF650 S22 both maximize all-flash performance for applications that require the highest storage speeds.

With 30 percent more performance headroom, they enable businesses to radically consolidate their storage systems, support fast data growth and deliver reliably short data response times for analytics and business-critical applications such as SAP HANA.

The mid-range ETERNUS AF650 S2 packs a raw data capacity of close to 3 PB per system into the space of only half a data center rack, providing class-leading IOPS performance and minimum latency, with a cost/performance ratio of $0.27/SPC-1 IOPSTM in the latest SPC benchmark results3, published on January 19, 2018.

The ETERNUS AF250 S2 is a perfect all-flash solution for small and medium-sized businesses, thanks to its low cost/performance ratio of $0.10/SPC-1 IOPSTM. Both models support new types of solid state drives (SSD) to be released later in 2018, further boosting maximum storage capacity.

Allowing businesses to consolidate as much structured and unstructured data as possible on one storage system that hosts both SSDs and hard disks, the ETERNUS DX500 S4 and DX600 S4 optimize hybrid storage capabilities for balancing speed, capacity and cost.

Fujitsu has re-architected both new models for a 30 percent performance increase in their SSD tier, while the high-capacity hard disks allow organizations to store unstructured data at the lowest cost. Intelligent automation features remove the administrative burden of managing diverse storage tiers by assigning bandwidth and storage based on the required response time per data volume.

Thanks to the strong performance of the SSD tier, the ETERNUS DX S4 family provides a safe path for businesses to gradually migrate from disk and flash to all-flash storage - all in one system.
