News Facts 


 
--  The Fujitsu ETERNUS(R) CS800 S4 data protection appliance delivers
    flexible scalability at a lower cost of growth
--  The attractive entry version offers full functionality -- including
    deduplication, data replication, and path-to-tape -- at no extra
    charge
--  Perfect in combination with Symantec and CommVault backup software,
    the new appliance is an easy-to-operate and powerful way to manage
    data backup

  
Fujitsu today enables even small and mid-size organizations to benefit
from data-protection peace-of-mind at an affordable and transparent
price, along with the cost advantages offered by closing no doors on
environment or back-up medium options. Launched today, the
new-generation Fujitsu ETERNUS CS800 data protection appliance
enables flexible data growth without high pre-investment, offering
smaller organizations comprehensive functionality at a fixed price,
plus a seamlessly scalable version for midsize environments.  
Making backup and recovery more efficient and reliable, the ETERNUS
CS800 is a data protection appliance for backup to disk with
deduplication. The deduplication functionality, as well as the
replication and path-to-tape software, is included in all versions,
at no extra charge, and with no hidden costs -- putting unified data
protection within any firm's grasp. The latest deduplication
technology reduces capacity requirements by up to 95 percent and by
deduplicating the data from all connected host systems,
network-bandwidth needs for replication can be reduced by a factor of
20 or more.(1) 
Customers want to pay for only the capacity they need now, and simply
add more as they need it. The Fujitsu ETERNUS CS800 S4 scalable
version can comfortably grow in seamless upgrades to 240TB without
the hassle of migrating to another model, or experiencing high costs
at every growth spurt. The attractive entry version is perfect for
small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and branch offices of
larger companies that need no more than 10 TB, where it enables
further consolidation of hardware resources. For the first time, this
data protection appliance allows customers to use either or a mix of
Storage Area Network (SAN) or Network-Attached Storage (NAS)
environments. 
The ETERNUS CS800 S4 enables customers to fully utilize all its
advantages, while minimizing operational effort and costs, due to
close integration with Symantec(R) NetBackup(R) and Backup Exec and
CommVault(R) Simpana(R) backup software. While the ETERNUS appliance
consolidates target systems and simplifies their operation, the
backup software adds powerful functionality to manage backup
processes from the servers to the targets.  
As one of the first appliances to support Symantec NetBackup OST with
A.I.R. (Auto Image Replication), ETERNUS CS800 S4 simplifies backup
to disk to remote locations, and facilitates disaster recovery. The
unique ability to load a CommVault Simpana media agent on the
appliance also allows customers to write data directly onto the
appliance without needing extra server hardware and at reduced
network traffic.
