Fujitsu Announces Extensive Support of Software-defined and Cloud Storage based on OpenStack and Ceph


London, May 27, 2014 – Fujitsu has initiated a number of proofs-of-concept with service providers and public sector institutions to deliver complete, highly-scalable, fault-tolerant storage solutions based on OpenStack and Ceph technology. The resulting solution, with unprecedented massive scale-out capabilities, will be generally available during the second half of 2014.

Fujitsu also announces with immediate effect OpenStack support of FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX systems. OpenStack is an open source cloud operating platform that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources in the datacentre environment. With ETERNUS OpenStack Volume Driver, customers can now provision resources hosted on ETERNUS DX systems in their environments and manage them centrally.

With both initiatives, Fujitsu is supporting its customers to use storage more efficiently in cloud-like environments and to embrace new technological paradigms faster for better business support.


Exponential data growth is driving today’s storage architectures to their limits. Data I/O performance, storage scalability, traditional RAID technologies and data migration of petabyte volumes are creating enormous challenges for enterprise storage professionals. The accelerating costs of storage are consuming an increasing part of IT infrastructure budgets. New software-defined storage technologies like OpenStack and Ceph enable the deployment of highly scalable, high performance and fault tolerant storage environments with a high potential to dramatically decrease costs-per-gigabyte. Fujitsu is an active contributor to the OpenStack community.
