You already know that Fujitsu ETERNUS entry level systems are fast.Â Test results released today (26th April) are even better.Â Whether doing database or file IO, the ETERNUS DX90 did more of it, faster, than its key competitors.Â And the next best after the DX90 is the DX80.
Itâ€™s not just Fujitsu saying it. In December, writing for ITPRO, Dave Mitchellâ€™s review of the ETERNUS DX80 said â€œâ€¦ throughput of no less than 1380MB/sec .,. its raw performance is quite remarkable.â€
More recently, one of our resellers told us â€œthe DX was quick and easy to set up but most of all very fast. To get that level of performance from HP and HDS we would have to go the â€œnext levelâ€ a level we are not accredited to go to and is prohibitively expensive for us to do so. We are thus advising our customers that the best option for price and performance is by far the Fujitsu Eternus rangeâ€.
Itâ€™s not just the entry range thatâ€™s fast.Â Earlier this month the latest Storage Performance Council released the benchmark data for the ETERNUS DX440.Â The results were remarkable: the ETERNUS DX440 beat every competitor, whether based on performance, throughput or price/performance.
In the last 50 years, server performance has increased a millionfold. Disk performance is barely a hundred times better.
Thatâ€™s why, when we designed the ETERNUS range of disk storage, we paid particular attention to disk performance. The results speak for themselves.
