Fujitsu Introduces the ETERNUS TR Series of Storage Designed for Large-Scale Virtualization Environments

Delivers stable, high-performance processing with easy deployment and management

Tokyo, Aug 27, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced the introduction of the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS TR series, a storage system designed especially for use in large-scale virtualization environments. The new series is available for order only in Japan starting today.

The ETERNUS TR series is specially designed for the virtual integration of large-scale servers compatible with VMware, and for desktop-virtualization systems. It eliminates the need for sophisticated design skills when constructing large-scale systems, as well as the issue of complexity in operations management, while delivering stable, high-performance processing, even under heavy loads. It is also simple and quick to deploy, and it simplifies the troublesome process of managing virtual machines.

Developed by US-based Tintri, Inc.(1) as a storage product, it is a recipient of multiple awards at events in the virtualized computing industry in recognition of its technology, and is being sold by Fujitsu as an OEM(2) product.

By selling this product as part of its ETERNUS series, Fujitsu seeks to accelerate its virtualization business.

Background

Server virtualization has become a popular way to use server resources more efficiently, while desktop virtualization is increasingly common for its security benefits and adaptability to changing work styles. As these systems grow in scale they require a greater level of storage performance. With this, however, a number of issues emerge, such as the need for more sophisticated design skills, time-consuming deployments, and greater complexity in the management of these systems.

To solve these problems, Fujitsu is now offering the ETERNUS TR series, a storage system that is specially designed for large-scale virtualization environments.

Key Features of the ETERNUS TR Series

1.Delivers stable, high-performance processing, even under heavy loads

The ETERNUS TR series delivers stable, high performance, even in large-scale server virtualization environments.

The ETERNUS TR series is designed so that solid-state drives(3) handle more than 99% of all input/output processing(4), enabling faster processing performance. If some virtual machines encounter sudden load spikes, the system can automatically allocate resources in such a way that the performance of other virtual machines is not affected, thereby maintaining a high and stable level of performance.

2.Quick, easy deployment

Even in large-scale server-virtualization environments that ordinarily require difficult performance optimizations, the ETERNUS TR series does not require any complex configuration design or performance tuning. The system can be up and running in ten minutes, requiring just three parameters to be set, including for networks and data store registration.

If more capacity or performance is needed, it is easy to scale up with the ETERNUS TR series. In addition, using dedicated operations-management software makes it easy for as many as 32 ETERNUS TR series units to be integrated and managed as a single system.

3.Simplifies troublesome process of managing virtual machines

By adopting the ETERNUS TR series, performance and capacity can be sequentially understood on a server-by-server basis, something not possible with previous storage systems.

It can also graphically display past processing times at the level of the individual host, network, storage system, or disk to uncover any bottlenecks(5). The process of identifying and resolving the causes of performance slowdowns, once difficult, is now fast and easy.

4.Data protection and disaster preparedness

The ETERNUS TR series can take a backup snapshot of data at the level of the individual virtual machine while it is online. This is a high-speed form of data protection that does not affect server-access performance because it only stores updated data.

Data at the level of the individual virtual machine can also be transferred to a remote location as a disaster-preparedness function. This process eliminates redundant data and compresses it before transmission, reducing the volume of data by as much as 95%, allowing for backup to remote locations over WAN lines while limiting their required bandwidth.

The new series will be added to the lineup of FUJITSU Integrated System Cloud Ready Blocks, a vertically integrated virtualization and cloud platform that enables the quick and easy deployment and operation of virtual and cloud environments. Along with delivering stable, high-performance processing for large-scale server virtualization environments, this will also lighten the operational-management workload over the course of a system's entire lifecycle.

Comment from Ken Klein, Chairman & CEO, Tintri, Inc.

Tintri is fundamentally changing how storage works with the industry's first and only smart storage which supports virtual machine-level operation designed for virtualized environment and private cloud deployments. The large number of global enterprises we now support in production environments running some of the most demanding business applications shows customers' confidence in our product, enterprise-class support and overall business operation. Today's announcement with Fujitsu represents a powerful opportunity for Tintri to significantly expand our presence. Fujitsu is a world-class leader that has clearly demonstrated its ability to apply its considerable resources and expertise to lead major market segments. The OEM distribution agreement will benefit millions of customers in search of storage solutions that will enable them to provide services instead of managing storage infrastructure.
