All-flash Edition of ETERNUS DX200 Sets New In-Class Price-Performance Standards
London, April 2, 2014 – Fujitsu today announces a new all-flash edition of its ETERNUS DX200 S3 online storage system, which sets new standards in terms of price-performance for databases, business application, business analytics tasks and server or desktop virtualization environments that require very high data performance.
The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200 S3 all-flash edition offers a huge 9.6TB solid-state storage capacity on 24 high-performance 400GB SSD devices and is targeted at ensuring that storage systems are able to keep up with the rigorous demands of real-time applications as well as to to avoid I/O bottlenecks that can bog down or even crash running systems.
Delivering 200,500.95 SPC-1 IOPS, Fujitsu’s DX200 S3 is able to offer significant performance at a very effective price point. The dual-controller ETERNUS DX200 S3 offers an outstanding price performance level of US $0.77 / SPC-1 IOPS. The response time of 0.63 milliseconds at 100 percent load achieved the lowest response time at 100 percent load ever reported in the history of the SPC-1 Benchmark.
In contrast to very expensive all-flash arrays based on special architectures, the Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200 S3 uses a high performance standard system architecture, helping to cut system purchase costs by up to 80 percent. In addition, the Fujitsu system does not require any expensive, complicated tuning or configuration, can be set up quickly and is ready to operate in minutes, saving time and costs.

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/results
The SPC-1 Benchmark 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.
