Fujitsu announces the availability of its next-generation turnkey appliance for disk-based backup, the Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS CS800 S7 data protection appliance with integrated deduplication. This powerful new system combines enterprise-class performance with flexible scalability and is competitively priced, making it an ideal choice for customers who need reliable and cost-effective data protection for small- to medium-sized backup environments.
Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS CS800 S7 offers disk-based backup with automated deduplication and remote replication for maximum data protection. With the latest Fujitsu hardware at its core and making use of solid state drives (SSDs), performance is boosted by up to approximately 40 percent in comparison to the previous generation model, and a single ETERNUS CS800 is now scalable from 16TB up to 640TB of net usable capacity. This not only provides great consolidation capabilities, but also ensures investment protection.
For customers using Veeam intelligent data management solutions, the ETERNUS CS800 leverages the Veeam Data Mover Service, enabling Veeam advanced features. One of the advanced features, Veeam Instant VM Recovery, allows users to restore a virtual machine by running it directly from the backup file, helping to minimize system downtime. For the consolidation of heterogeneous environments, ETERNUS CS800 provides parallel support for leading backup software such as Commvault and Veritas, including NetBackup support for Veritas OST features.
By leveraging the Veeeam Data Mover Service, synthetic full processing can be offloaded to the ETERNUS CS800 S7, allowing fast backup and recovery processes, while also reducing demands on client devices, backup servers and networks. To provide even higher input/output speeds, selected backup software can run directly on ETERNUS CS800 S7 in a virtual machine, a process which also eliminates the need for investments in additional hardware, such as media servers.
Customers can easily implement highly-efficient and secure 3-2-1 data protection strategies with online and offline as well as multi-site backups, using the ETERNUS CS800 S7 in combination with tape systems such as the Fujitsu ETERNUS LT. The easy-to-use, integrated path-to-tape feature ensures ongoing availability and fast access to critical data and helps protect against data loss due to system failure or data corruption via ransomware. Backing up to both disk and tape ensures optimal short-term backup and restore performance, and the value proposition is combined with low prices to provide a compelling argument for long-term data retention.
