Fast track to your Microsoft hyper-converged IT infrastructure FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct Hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI) are transforming the economics of IT. Unlike traditional infrastructures, HCI is software-defined, creating a next generation data center foundation that’s even more cost-efficient, resilient, and adaptable to changing business scenarios. It’s no wonder that organizations are keen to take the next step. But the do-ityourself approach to hyper-converged infrastructures is fraught with challenges. Fujitsu can provide an integrated system that speeds deployment of the core virtual infrastructure foundation for the data center: FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct. PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct is an integrated system that includes all the hardware and software to simplify procurement and deployment of a Microsoftbased hyper-converged IT infrastructure. It leverages high performance, energyefficient FUJITSU PRIMERGY standard x86 servers and the software-defined server and storage technology integrated in Microsoft Windows Server 2016 to reduce complexity and TCO in data center infrastructure. Learn more about PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct: www.fujitsu.com/primeflex/ms-s2d.html The facts ■ Deploy cluster in under 15 minutes ■ 150k+ IOPS per server ■ 2.4x greater storage efficiency ■ Scale from 2 to 16 servers and 384 drives ■ Mitigate risk with built-in resiliency ■ Leverage Storage QoS controls with per-VM IOPS limits and health service ■ Reduce cost with OS integrated compute and storage virtualization licences Move to a more business-centric IT As enterprises move to digital business processes, data center operations are challenged to provide a responsive IT infrastructure that satisfies the increasing demand for better service levels. PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct delivers the speed, flexibility, reliability and scalability necessary to deploy a more business-centric IT that‘s aligned to future business needs. Need for speed? PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct features a resource-efficient hypervisor-embedded design in combination with high speed flash disk devices and high-throughput, low-latency networking technology. You can therefore set up a high-performance, responsive virtual IT infrastructure that provides consistent IOPS with sub-millisecond response times. In all-flash or hybrid disk configurations, Storage Spaces Direct easily exceeds 150,000 IO operations (IOPS) per server. Protect your business Built-in resiliency handles drive, server, or component failures – delivering continuous availability. If hardware fails, just swap it out; the software heals itself, with no complicated management steps. Grow as you go Scale your environment from just two hosts to 16, with 384 drives. To scale out, simply add drives or add more servers; Storage Spaces Direct will automatically onboard new drives and begin using them. Simplify infrastructure setup Once you have the servers mounted and cabled in a rack, Windows Server 2016 installed, and networking configured, you’re looking at under 15 minutes to get the storage cluster configured. Simplify infrastructure management No specialized skill or expensive training is required – perfect for environments such as remote or branch office locations with limited IT staff. Integrated storage quality of service controls keep overly busy VMs in check with minimum and maximum perVM IOPS limits. The health service provides continuous built-in monitoring and alerting, and APIs make it easy to collect rich, clusterwide performance and capacity metrics. Improve storage efficiency Save floor space, power and cooling Unique innovations offer better space and performance trade-offs than classic RAID configurations. Erasure coding delivers up to 2.4x greater storage efficiency than 3-way mirroring. The convergence of compute and storage resources in an industry-standard server reduces your infrastructure footprint, saves floor space, power and cooling expenses. Reduce storage costs More time for value-added activity PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct uses local storage only. This reduces costs and eliminates the need for extra tools and training for managing complex external SAN infrastructures. Since server and storage management are consolidated, you can move valuable staff resources from infrastructurerelated management tasks to activities that create business value. Reduce compute and storage virtualization software licence costs The Windows Server 2016 Data Center Edition licence that comes with PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct already includes all rights to use the integrated server and storage virtualization functionality. There is no need to acquired additional licences for compute and storage virtualization software.
