Fujitsu ETERNUS CS Unified Data Protection Appliance to Integrate Quantum 
Deduplication for at Least 5x Greater Scalability Than Market

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/13 --  
News Facts
 1. Fujitsu to embed best-in-class Quantum deduplication
technology in the next generation of Fujitsu ETERNUS(R) CS High End
Data Protection Appliance for enterprises 
 2. Fujitsu to massively
simplify and consolidate backup and archiving infrastructures and
deliver the only scale-out deduplication appliance on the market  
Fujitsu today announces that enterprises will soon find it far easier
to balance backup and recovery speed with the cost of flexibly
storing virtually unlimited amounts of data on any combination of
storage media. In an extended sales and technology agreement, Fujitsu
is embedding the Quantum(R) (NYSE: QTM) industry-leading
deduplication technology in the next generation of the Fujitsu
ETERNUS CS High End Data Protection Appliance. The new solution is
anticipated to be over five times more scalable than the current
market leader and will be the first scale-out deduplication appliance
available on the market. 
Fujitsu ETERNUS CS High End uniquely increases the flexibility and
efficiency of backup and archiving infrastructures. By completely
virtualizing all disk and tape target systems in the datacenter, it
creates one logical backup and archiving environment with unified
management and unmatched flexibility in balancing speed and storage
costs. All data are copied from the servers onto a highly scalable
storage cache on ETERNUS CS High End. Data can remain on the cache
for almost immediate recovery, or can be moved to disk, deduplicated
disk or tape.  
With the next generation of this solution, deduplication technology
will be directly integrated to the internal storage cache, while of
course the disk cache also remains available without deduplication.
By integrating Quantum deduplication technology, enterprises can
additionally use internal disk storage capacity as an extremely
efficient final backup target, as the necessary disk space can be
reduced by factor 10- to 30-times or more. Existing customers can
also benefit from upgrade options to embed deduplication in their
current ETERNUS CS High End appliances.  
With over a thousand installations of the ETERNUS CS High End Unified
Data Protection Appliance in datacenters around the world, Fujitsu is
supporting its customers with a solution to massively simplify and
consolidate both backup and archiving infrastructures with a
significant associated reduction in investment, operational, and
maintenance costs. By integrating the Quantum leading deduplication
technology, the new generation appliance allow customers to further
optimize their data protection environments -- regardless of the mix
of tape, disk, or deduplicated disk that best meets their needs.
