MEDIA ALERT: Fujitsu Offers Single Controller ETERNUS Storage Solution
ETERNUS2000 Single Controller SAN Offers Low-Cost Entry to a High-Availability Capable Storage System
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/26/08 --
Event: Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced the
ETERNUS®2000 Single Controller SAN, offering low-cost entry to a storage
solution that can be reconfigured for high-availability when the need
arises. The ETERNUS2000 Single Controller SAN offers the same scalability
and basic features and functionality as the dual-controller ETERNUS2000
Significance: The ETERNUS2000 Single Controller lets managers save money
while still future-proofing purchases for their growing data centers. The
ETERNUS2000 Single Controller SAN delivers enterprise-class functionality
and power efficiency for remote offices and cost-sensitive enterprise
applications, while offering the scalability -- up to 72 TB -- and the
eventual high availability that growing organizations need. The quiet,
compact 2U storage system offers a three-tiered storage pool including
MAID, virtual LUNs for flexible capacity expansion with business
continuity, and snapshots and mirroring.
Quotes: "Our small- and medium-sized enterprise customers have made it
clear that future-proofing their IT purchases is critical given today's
tight budgets," said Dave Egan, senior vice president, storage at Fujitsu.
"While many organizations today can't justify the additional cost of a
high-availability storage solution, preparing the infrastructure for this
capability ensures significantly higher ROI for the ETERNUS2000 SAN."
Price and Availability: The ETERNUS2000 Single Controller will be available
at the end of August 2008; priced starting below $8,000.
