Fujitsu ETERNUS Hybrid System Outshines many Enterprise Arrays and Purpose-built All-flash Alternatives, According to New SPC-1 Benchmarks

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu today announced that its midrange FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS® DX600 S3 scalable, unified disk storage systems are the right choice for data-intensive applications, such as demanding database systems, real-time analytics and big data environments, online transaction scenarios with a high number of users and all types of Internet applications. As confirmed by the recently published SPC-1 Benchmark from the Storage Performance Council (SPC)1, the latest generation of Fujitsu ETERNUS® hybrid dual controller midrange systems, which are focused on optimizing business-centric storage, have again achieved best-in-class benchmark performance (IOPS), price-performance ($/IOPS), and sub-millisecond response times2.

The extended system lifetime and reduced migration costs of the ETERNUS® DX600 S3 result from delivering large headroom in areas where exponential data growth can be anticipated. IOPS performance directly influences the number of virtual machines that can be hosted on a storage system, meaning ETERNUS® DX can constantly increase virtual machine density and therefore, an ideal storage consolidation platform for VMware or Hyper-V usage.

Achieving this benchmark also demonstrates that the hybrid system drives down latency by efficiently running a large number of solid-state drives (SSDs) without creating internal bottlenecks. In addition, many customers no longer need to invest in expensive special-purpose all-flash arrays, as this system achieves a response time of only 0.61 milliseconds under full load and it can achieve many high-performance data application objectives.

The test results are published on the SPC website as of July 25, 2014, and will be officially accepted after the 60-day peer review period. See referenced documents for complete benchmark results (Submission Identifier A00146) http://www.storageperformance.org/results/benchmark_results_spc1_active#a00146.

Pricing and availability
The full range of ETERNUS® DX S3 systems and ETERNUS® SF16 management software are globally available, sold directly and via Fujitsu Channel Partners. Prices vary depending on the configuration. All ETERNUS® DX S3 systems are easy to manage and share the same flexible family architecture, providing investment protection and enabling extensive scalability through seamlessly upgrading to a bigger model within the range. In addition, the latest release of ETERNUS® SF software introduces new system management functionality for customers deploying the previous generation of Fujitsu ETERNUS® DX systems.

Notes to editors
1. The Storage Performance Council (SPC) is a vendor-neutral standards body focused on the storage industry. It created the first industry-standard performance benchmark targeted at the needs and concerns of the storage industry. SPC benchmarks provide a rigorous, audited and reliable measure of performance. Further information is available online at http://www.storageperformance.org

  • Fujitsu subscribes to SPC Benchmark testing as a valid and independent way for customers to judge performance results: http://www.storageperformance.org/specs
  • The SPC Benchmark 1 test program is designed to simulate business-critical applications processing many complex transactions. Pseudo-operational workloads of Online Transactions (OLTP), database operations and mail systems are recreated to measure random access read/write performance.

2. With the latest SPC Benchmark 1 from SPC, Fujitsu ETERNUS® DX600 S3 has beaten all midrange hybrid dual controller arrays and also some multi-controller enterprise class storage systems in terms of IOPS, $/IOPS and response time.

  • With a response time of 0.61 milliseconds at 100 percent load, the ETERNUS® DX600 S3 achieved the highest scores ever in the history of the SPC-1 benchmark.
  • As it is able to run more than 320,000 SPC-1 IOPS, Fujitsu's midrange system plays in the same league as higher-priced enterprise systems, with a similar level of performance to many all-flash arrays.
  • The dual-controller ETERNUS® DX600 S3 offers an outstanding price performance level of US $1.54 / SPC-1 IOPS.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
