New storage solutions from Fujitsu ETERNUS

In 2018 the company with 50 years of experience in creating storage solutions, Fujitsu, presented on the market the updated ETERNUS hybrid data storage system. This system gives a level of reliability of 99.99%. At least so it is stated. To minimize downtime, it was decided to use Storage Cluster technology to reduce the downtime till several minutes a year. With its help in the case of a group of disks or a whole array failure system will be automatically switched to the use of the second array. For this, WWN links will be transferred on the second array.

The ETERNUS product line can use and compression and de-duplication as compression mechanisms. It is especially effective to use both types of compression when creating multiple virtual environments. Compared to the first generation, the performance of the ETERNUS AF250 S2 and ETERNUS AF650 S2 arrays increased by 30%. The average IOPS is 430,000 and 810,000 respectively.

The business will be pleasantly surprised that thanks to the automatic provision of QoS, you can adjust and distribute the load depending on the time of day and even the date. QoS features allow you to prioritize applications and processes.

Microcode levels have also changed. Now the speed of reading or writing will increase in a sequential process. In new models the mechanisms of data transfer to a new installed storage system have been improved. Part of the ports in the new storage must be put into the initiator mode, in this case other systems will be perceived as the server initiating the data transfer. In this way, the migration process is reduced and the system sees the data even if the copying is still unsuccessful. Another nice feature added due to the update of the microcode is the migration of data with zero idle time.
