ETERNUS CS Efficient Data Protection for Enterprises and the Mid-Market
Fujitsu Delivers Greater Disaster Resilience, Even Across Long Distances, Plus a Unique Archiving Approach for Consolidated, Flexible, and Cost-Effective Use of Disk or Tape Storage Media
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/26/10 -- Fujitsu today announces the global launch of the fifth generation of its ETERNUS® CS High End data protection appliance for larger enterprises, and the second generation of its ETERNUS CS800 Data Protection Appliance for mid-sized and smaller businesses.
Businesses of all sizes have never before had a greater need for efficient data protection. Society depends more on IT than ever before in history, especially with the prevalence of computer-centered business processes, and the rise of social networking and digital publishing. The rates of exponential growth in unstructured and duplicated/replicated data are unlikely to slow, while fierce competition through globalization continues to drive the search for ever greater efficiency as we emerge slowly out of global recession. Lastly, environmental changes further pressure the allocation of scarce resources and drive up energy costs, while extreme natural disasters, such as fires in Russia, or flooding in Pakistan, focus attention on the risks of failure.
Introduced today at Storage Networking World 2010 in Frankfurt, Germany, these market-leading ETERNUS CS data protection appliances have been enriched with a complete portfolio of best-of-breed products designed to enable businesses to thrive in this challenging environment. Integrated into a completely consolidated data protection eco-system, ETERNUS CS is surrounded by a comprehensive set of services, starting with installation and maintenance up to Managed Services.
Key developments in the new generation include significant improvements for disaster protection even across countries or continents, with cascaded appliances and replication of deduplicated backup data. Support of mixed-media archiving requirements is now possible within a consolidated disaster protection environment. Cost of disk backup can also be further reduced, by leveraging the entire ETERNUS CS appliance range with deduplication technology.
"As businesses emerge out of a global financial crisis, and look for new ways to strengthen their business, it doesn't take long to realize that protecting business-critical data is the key," said Richard McCormack, SVP, Server & Solutions Business at Fujitsu America. "With over 10 years deep experience at the leading edge of efficient data protection, Fujitsu is earning its reputation as the world's trusted advisor on efficient data protection."
"The introduction of the ETERNUS CS800 marks a strategic shift by Fujitsu and a more aggressive stance in the data protection appliance market. At the high end, large enterprises have deployed over 700 CSX000 series units that allow the consolidation of open systems and mainframe backup systems into companywide solutions that simplify management, increase resilience, and make more effective use of physical tape," said Nick Sundby of IDC research group. "The addition of deduplication will sharply increase effective storage capacities and should accelerate the return on investment for many customers."
