Fujitsu has introduced its new storage appliance for archiving to its portfolio. The ETERNUS CS8050 NAS provides comprehensive, competitively priced storage for the archiving needs of medium-sized organisations.
Archiving chunks of business data over long periods of time is not only a legal requirement for many businesses, it also provides an effective solution to help manage growing amounts of retained data.
With the new ETERNUS CS8050 NAS, Fujitsu has developed a fast and reliable archiving solution that offloads daily backup for inactive but still important business data, helping streamline daily backups.
The system packs the same high-performance Fujitsu hardware and firmware as the flagship enterprise backup and archiving platform ETERNUS CS8000 into a smaller, 2U rack mountable unit and is designed specifically for mid-sized IT environments.
With support for up to 200 million files, irrespective of their size, the ETERNUS CS8050 NAS Target Appliance is compatible with all leading archiving software vendors in providing a unified solution which can accommodate these varied archiving technologies.
It supports Network File System (NFS) and Common Internet File System (CIFS) interfaces and stores data on scalable RAID protected disk storage, providing a maximum net usable capacity of up to 70 TB.
“Whether large or small organisation, data is at the core of many businesses today. With stringent compliance guidelines and GDPR challenges now impacting most sectors, a secure and reliable archiving platform is essential,” said Olivier Delachapelle, head of category management, Data Center Products, Fujitsu EMEIA.
“With the ETERNUS CS8050 NAS, we are bringing the benefits of proven archiving and backup technology to customers with smaller storage environments, offering them an efficient solution for the long-term retention of important business data. This helps them manage the sheer amount of data they handle, fulfil legal standards and ensure the integrity and authenticity of their data at all times.”
In addition to the Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8050 NAS for archiving processes, Fujitsu offers other models for various backup and archive use cases. This includes the ETERNUS CS8050 model for VTL environments, typically used to support backup processes in branch offices, together with a ETERNUS CS8000 model in the main data-center.
The Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8050 NAS is available globally through Fujitsu’s direct and indirect channels now. List prices vary by region, model and configuration, starting at €53,850.
