LONDON, November 11, 2015 – Fujitsu has radically simplified backup and archiving for companies of all sizes with the introduction of its new generation of Fujitsu’s ETERNUS CS data protection appliances. This range of ready-to-use appliances is architected to reduce both the intial cost of backup and archving solutions and the reliance on internal resources; not to mention mitigating the risks associated with missed backups, failure to recover after a disaster, or corruption of sensitive data due to inexpert handling.
In today’s fast-moving, information-intensive business environment, data protection is more of a challenge than ever. This complexity meand that reportedly only half of all SMBs are thought to do daily backups, and between 25-45 percent of them aren’t able to reopen after a disaster1.
According to Bernhard Brandwitte, Vice President Global Storage Business at Fujitsu: “Data protection is a challenge for all companies because it is traditionally complex, time-consuming and expensive. Relying on manual processes and scripts, or ad hoc piecemeal automation, is not sustainable over the longer term, especially not for smaller organisations and mid-market customers that have fewer dedicated IT resources or in-house expertise. Fujitsu’s ETERNUS CS appliances overcome these challenges as they make data protection simple, flexible and easier to deploy for companies of all sizes. Customers benefit from turnkey appliances that are fast, cost efficient and easy to use.”
The ETERNUS CS data protection appliances are optimised to simplify the configuration of backup and archiving, and have inbuilt data deduplication to save disk capacity and replication to provide high availability. The ETERNUS CS200c embeds industry-leading Commvault® software for a complete backup and archive solution, whilst the ETERNUS CS800 is built to simplify the complexity of deploying one or multiple backup suites.
Kevin Matthews, Head of Channel and Sales Director, UK & Ireland, Fujitsu, commented: “With our ‘New Horizons’ channel initiative, Fujitsu is making it easier than ever for its SELECT Expert Data Protection partners to meet the needs of their customers and drive profitable business. More and more companies are choosing appliances to simplify the protection and recovery of data. This is a high growth market area and Fujitsu is enabling its channel partners to benefit from the upsewell in customer demand. The initiative includes a full set of awareness- and demand-generation activities, as well as price promotions and access to demo systems.”2
The Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS CS800 S6 data protection appliance combines fast backup and restore from disk with advanced deduplication technology for small and midsized environments and secures replication while drastically reducing complexity. It includes support of Veritas NetBackup Accelerator for faster backup, drastically reduced load on the network, to help customers manage the challenge of information explosion. Improvements for VMware backup and recovery mean less hardware is needed, not to mention lower VMware licensing costs. Importantly, it is now possible to restore single files, folders, databases and applications rather than waste time and effort restoring the whole virtual machines as competing systems more often require. The entry model is now extendible from 8 to up to 120 TB – this means five times more scalability in capacity for the cost-optimised entry model, while the scale model now reaches 352 TB net usage capacity3.
In comparison, the Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS CS200c S2 integrated backup appliance integrates powerful Fujitsu system technology and industry leading Commvault software. This all-in-one backup and archiving solution enables a fast and hassle-free setup of a comprehensive data protection environment. The new generation of ETERNUS CS200c Powered by Commvault now supports cloud backup for 20+ cloud storage platforms. A broad range of cost- and performance-optimised models with flexible licensing options give the customer freedom of choice and meet their varying needs. Improved automation also relieves project administrators.
