For many years in a row, Fujitsu storage systems have claimed top spots on the renowned list of SPC-1™ benchmark results. Our midrange all-flash array, introduced in October 2016, is no exception to the rule – in fact, it received A grades for class-beating responsiveness and performance earlier this year. However, quite often it's hard to figure out exactly what such test results mean and to translate them into language that managers and executives understand. Our two-part feature aims to solve these issues, both in general and with regard to the ETERNUS AF650.

In part 1 of our feature, we identified five key objectives any organization, regardless of size or industry, strives to achieve in its storage environment – scalability, business continuity, flexibility, protection against data loss and criminal attacks, and efficiency. Naturally, the implicit assumption is that an improved storage solution will not only address these issues, but deliver higher speed and better responsiveness. And that's exactly what Fujitsu's latest ETERNUS DX entry-level systems stand for.

The trend towards digital transformation of the global economy is in full swing. Throughout the industries, companies are reshaping their business models to remain competitive in increasingly fast-paced environments that rely on smooth and rapid data processing. In this big rush, it doesn't really matter which size they are or what they do – sooner or later the trend will catch up with them, regardless of whether they're multi-billion dollar outfits in the automotive or pharmaceutical sector, successful online retailers, or simply the bricklayer next door whose 15 employees work five different construction sites. The only difference is that smaller companies will be the first to suffer if they can't handle their data efficiently. Fujitsu's new, fourth generation of ETERNUS DX storage arrays are designed to help SMEs meet this challenge and a few others.

"Oh please, let's not fall for this hype!" Not too long ago, this was the standard response IT experts would face whenever they suggested that certain data, applications or services should be moved to 'the cloud.' Today, nobody talks about a hype anymore – services like Dropbox or Office 365 are ubiquitous, and organizations of all sizes will start looking for cloud solutions rather than regular hard- and software when they need new capacities and/or functions. Thus pressure on the cloud's hardware backbone – especially on storage systems – constantly increases, demanding substantial upgrades. NetApp's SolidFire all-flash arrays have what it takes to keep the cloud afloat.

Over the course of its history, Fujitsu has always made a point of bringing the latest, most advanced ICT products to midmarket organizations and SMBs. Some decades back, this meant manufacturing and selling standardized telecommunications equipment. Today, we're helping the same class of customers build resilient, highly available, efficient, and easy-to-manage IT infrastructures – with solutions like our FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX Cluster-in-a-box.

An old adage says IT departments only know three problems with storage – throughput, latency and capacity, or TLC for short. Fujitsu's brand-new ETERNUS AF line of arrays will cure the ills in all of these areas. The final part of our 2-part feature looks into the technical specs and shows how SMEs and large organizations can profit from the new products with the help of model use cases.

Contrary to assertions from self-proclaimed experts, "tape" still plays a key role in the backup, recovery and archiving strategies of numerous corporations large and small. For good reason: apart from the well-known cost advantage, modern tape libraries like Fujitsu's ETERNUS LT260 offer a wide variety of features one might not expect, such as built-in hardware encryption. And because it supports the LTO-7 standard, the LT260 is also ready to run in petabyte-scale storage and archiving scenarios.

In a data-driven economy, organizations of all kinds and sizes must retain more information than ever before. But the more bits and bytes they keep, the harder they are to protect. That's why a few years ago we introduced our ETERNUS CS line of data protection appliances, which simplified and automated a lot of key functions and helped customers master this task. Meanwhile, however, ongoing exponential data growth and an increasing demand for effective and targeted information management pose new challenges that prompt us to refresh the product line and further push the envelope of data protection (DP). Part 2 of our blog explains what's new about the ETERNUS CS800 S6.

What happens to a company that suddenly loses larger parts of its core data, such as the product or customer database, logistical or configuration information regarding virtual servers? Maybe not a lot at first, but if data and applications aren't available again on the third day, even the most tolerant clients and suppliers may start looking for alternatives. Or imagine an online shop that is not accessible within a few seconds. Many visitors will simply leave the website and buy somewhere else. The best way to prevent such catastrophic events is to build IT infrastructures that have high availability (HA) built in and support fast and concise backup and recovery. Fujitsu's server and storage systems enable businesses to do just that – so they can get back on track as fast as possible.

Although reports about its final demise have been pouring in for well over a decade, tape storage is still pretty much alive – and basically indispensable for all organizations that have to ensure long-term data retention. Fujitsu's ETERNUS LT series of tape systems tends to these customers' needs, with the latest addition to the roster being an upgraded version of the ETERNUS LT260 tape library first introduced in 2014.

In this era of data-driven business models, companies cannot afford to lose even the smallest bit of information or struggle with data availability. This rule applies to all firms, regardless of industry or size – "big pharma" is just as dependent on high-quality data as the retailer next door. Sadly, storage products for small and medium enterprises often lack a number of functions that would ensure they can compete with the big boys. Fujitsu's third-generation ETERNUS DX100 all-in-one storage system provides them.

Data volumes continue to expand, and capacity requirements often exceed the internal storage capacity servers can offer. As a result, many organizations – especially SMBs and start-ups – will often combine servers with cheap external consumer-grade storage to make up for the lack of disk space. Unfortunately, such a setup can seriously harm the performance of both the server and the storage system. A combination of Fujitsu's entry-level PRIMERGY RX1330 M1 rack server with our new ETERNUS JX40 S2 storage subsystem will help users avoid such pitfalls.

For many years in a row, IT departments have sought for ways to substantially simplify their time-consuming and often hyper-complex backup and archiving operations and processes. The ETERNUS CS200c – Fujitsu's latest addition to its roster of popular data protection appliances – takes the idea of simplification one step further by wrapping up correctly-sized hardware, necessary software tools and required licenses into a single, complete, and ready-to-use appliance for SMBs and distributed environments.

Entry-level storage solutions frequently have a problem, and that's being entry-level. On too many occasions, this means they lack decisive features that would show they belong to the same category as other storage products. Fujitsu's new ETERNUS DX60 S3 is different by design.

In recent years, data deduplication has become one of the most popular and most easily misunderstood storage technologies at the same time. Misled by industry buzz, customers heavily invested in deduplication-ready platforms only to find that the new systems could hardly meet the promised data reduction rates of 20:1 or more. The final part of our four-piece-blog explains why it the FUJITSU ETERNUS CS800 is an ideal platform for building cloud infrastructures/private clouds.
