ETERNUS DX - THE DATA SAFE
ETERNUS DX60
ETERNUS DX disk storage systems - the most
reliable and secure data safes:
For small and medium-sized businesses, ETERNUS
DX60, DX80, and DX90 provide fast and highly
available data. For mid-range and enterprise
customers who need secure and flexible integration
into the data center, Fujitsu offers the ETERNUS
DX400 series and ETERNUS DX8000 series.
ETERNUS DX disk storage systems use the same
software stack and hardware functions across the
entire range to allow ease-of-use and greater
efficiency for users.
Fujitsu ETERNUS DX60 is a new generation of entry
level disk storage systems with enterprise class
reliability. Easy to install, configure, operate and
maintain, they integrate well with host operating
systems, multi-vendor servers, network
infrastructures and backup solutions.
ETERNUS SF - Fujitsu's Storage Management
Software - reduces total cost of ownership by
simplifying the monitoring and management of
ETERNUS DX disk storage systems. Furthermore it
helps to achieve business continuity by leveraging
the Advanced Copy functions for data backup, using
snapshots and clones. Altogether, with ETERNUS SF,
storage resources in complex IT environments are
optimized.
As one of the world's largest IT services companies,
Fujitsu combines many years of experience in
complex data centers to offer tailor-made solutions
that perfectly fit customers' individual requirements.
Moreover, Fujitsu is one of the few global players to
provide flexible infrastructures with its Dynamic
Infrastructures strategy: server, storage, networking
and service solutions - all from one trusted partner.

ETERNUS DX60 disk storage systems flexibly scale to
48 terabyte with 24 drives. Different models can
either be attached to hosts via Fibre Channel, iSCSI
or SAS connections.
ETERNUS DX60 base units support 12x 3.5” drives
per 2U rack shelf. Alternative base units of the
FC-attached models can be equipped with 24x 2.5”
drives per 2U shelf to reduce power consumption
and space requirements.
Backup copies are always at hand via the included
eight snapshots and clones, which can be optionally
upgraded to 512.
ETERNUS SF Express management software,
provided with ETERNUS DX60, simplifies the
monitoring, management and copying methods of
multiple ETERNUS DX disk storage systems from a
central console.

DATASHEET FUJITSU ETERNUS DX60 DISK STORAGE SYSTEM
QUALITY AND RELIABILITY
ETERNUS DX60 offers entry level solutions with the same non-stop robustness
and redundant hot-pluggable components (power supplies, fans, RAID controllers)
as much larger systems.
ETERNUS DX60 is equipped with 8 snapshot sessions. Using the Graphical User
Interface (GUI) or Command Line Interface (CLI), they enable planning of the
required quantity of copy sessions as well as testing of copying functions. Once a
copy license is purchased, snapshots can be extended to 512 sessions.
Different drive types can be mixed and matched. All the relevant RAID levels (0, 1,
1+0, 5, 5+0 and 6) are available so that data can be protected in a flexible
manner to meet reliability and security requirements. Furthermore, the RAID
Migration feature can be used to dynamically move data between different RAID
groups and drives without interrupting operations. This allows data to be moved
to fast SAS disk drives or high-capacity Nearline SAS disk drives according to its
access frequency and importance.
ETERNUS DX60 is a leading energy-efficient storage system. In Eco-mode, which
uses MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks) technology, it requires even less energy
and produces less heat as disk drives not in use can stop rotation. In
backup-to-disk environments, drives used for nightly backup can be spun down
during daily operations. This contributes significantly to system and data center
efficiency.
With higher capacities of Nearline SAS disk drives, recovery times following a
drive failures are increasing. This increases the risk that another drive will fail
before the first has been recovered. It can take a number of days to rebuild a 2
terabyte disk drive in a RAID 5 configuration. "Redundant Copy” starts the rebuild
procedure as soon as the first signs of failure appear. This dramatically minimizes
the risk of permanent data loss during the recovery action.
EASE-OF-USE
ETERNUS DX60 protects data on the disk drives not only via RAID but also via the
Data Block Guard. This function appends a check code in every data block and
verifies it at multiple checkpoints. This improves data integrity both on the drives
and in the cache. Should data corruption occur, the system can detect the error
and guarantee the consistency of stored data.
With ETERNUS SF Express already bundled for simplified storage system
management and maintenance, monitoring multiple ETERNUS DX disk storage
systems from the one centralized console is no problem. In addition it manages
the Advanced Copy functions within the storage system making snapshots and
clones an easy task, through one combined management console.
Using Data Encryption, no unauthorized access is possible when drives are
removed from the storage system. This feature can be activated if required and is
only available in countries where encryption of data is permitted.
VERSATILITY AND INTEROPERABILITY
ETERNUS DX60 is also equipped with state-of-the-art Cache Protector. Instead of
traditional batteries, it uses capacitors to write the contents of the RAID controller
cache to flash memory in the event of power failure and to ensure that no data is
lost. The power generated by the capacitor is sufficient for the data backup.
When power supply is restored, the cache can be restored very quickly as
capacitors recharge a lot faster than batteries. The capacitors used in ETERNUS
DX90 do not need as much maintenance and have a longer lifespan than
batteries frequently used in other systems.
Installation is quite simple. The management software - with its graphical user
interface and installation wizard - is designed for easy intuitive operation and
comes pre-installed on each system. Day to day operation management of
ETERNUS DX60 is very straight forward. Firmware upgrades can also be carried
out - usually without any operational interruptions.
At just 2U height and with a capacity of 12 drives in 3.5 inch format, ETERNUS
DX60 flexibly scales from 600GB to 48TB. An alternative FC base model is
available for a maximum of 24x 2.5 inch drives. With 2.5 inch drives the
maximum storage capacity of each system is limited to 7.2 Terabytes.
ETERNUS DX60 is suitable for a broad range of uses, including high-availability
solutions. Examples are: Microsoft Cluster Server, x10sure or ServerView
Resource Coordinator VE, storage consolidation, critical company applications,
such as databases or e-mail, archiving and backup-to-disk. ETERNUS DX60 is
also ideal for use in the virtual server environments of VMware vSphere, Citrix and
Microsoft Hyper-V.
INNOVATION AND FLEXIBILITY
With three different base models, ETERNUS DX60 can connect to hosts either via
Fibre Channel, iSCSI or SAS using either single or dual controllers with 1GB of
each cache. Online upgrades from single to dual controller configurations are
possible. With two Fibre Channel controllers, a maximum of 64 hosts can be
connected in Storage Area Networks (SAN). In contrast, the iSCSI models enable
SAN functionality via the well-known Internet Protocol which requires no
investment in new IT infrastructure and training. In comparison the SAS models
directly connect to servers so that very low-priced cluster configurations can be
implemented.
With Advanced Copy functions, a business data volume can be copied to a
separate copy volume, within the disk storage system, at any point in time. Once
the copy is completed, the copy volume can be separated from the business
volume. This allows easy backup to a tape device, as using the point in time copy
allows ongoing normal operations on the business data.
