Like insurance, plumbing and pairing up socks, backup is an unfortunate necessity of modern life.Â Too often, like burst pipes and odd socks, it goes wrong.
With the shipment of Fujitsuâ€™s ETERNUS CS800, backup and restore has suddenly got easier for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Since it does backup to disk, the ETERNUS CS800 is fast.Â It can take on backup data at up to 2 Terabytes an hour.
Disk-to-disk backup has been long regarded as too expensive.Â The ETERNUS CS800 fixes this by using block-level data deduplication.Â In laymanâ€™s language it stores data just once, instead of repeatedly backing up the same unchanged files, over and over.Â This means the effective capacity of the system is typically increased by a factor of 10, reducing the cost of backup by 90%.
Two (or more) ETERNUS CS800 systems can work together.Â This is a simple way of setting up disaster backup systems, or consolidating many distributed systems.
So for the SME, Fujitsuâ€™s ETERNUS CS800 makes backup a whole lot easier.
