The design and development of Fujitsu's ETERNUS DX provide numerous energy-conserving features. This validation demonstrated that storage system energy consumption can be cut without affecting system performance by shutting down the disk used for the database backup area with the ETERNUS DX energy-saving "Eco-mode" function. This reduces power and IT system operating costs.
The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX disk storage system offers the advantage of allowing the incorporation of a high-speed, high-reliability FC disk together with a high-capacity, low-cost nearline SATA disk. ETERNUS DX also includes a RAID migration function for transferring logical volumes to separate RAID groups, allowing logical volumes on a RAID group consisting of an FC disk to be transferred within the storage space to a nearline SATA disk.
Capable of responding to changes in operating configurations to achieve customer business goals, the ETERNUS DX provides storage infrastructure that ensures access to required data and storage resources at any time from business applications and processes assigned the appropriate authority.
