Some people think that Storage can be complicated...but no! Here are 7 simple reasons why you will value our Fujitsu  ETERNUS products as the best purchase you've have made this year!

1. Outstanding performance

Benchmarks show that ETERNUS disk storage is faster than products from HP, IBM, Dell and HDS.

2. Value for money

In tough times, every penny counts.  This is why ETERNUS offers great value for you, having both great price and great performance.  Contact us for more details on 0800 880 3360 or email damien@discus.co.uk

3. Mix and Match

Some data needs the fastest speeds.  Other data, such as archive, can do with cheaper.  With ETERNUS DX you can mix and match lightning-fast SSD, high-performance SAS and low-cost SATA in the same system.

4. Disaster Recovery Built In

The Eternus DX90 can pair with a second DX90 at a remote site to offer disaster recovery quickly, easily and affordably.  This is faster, easier and more reliable than using tape backup for DR.

5. Data protection

ETERNUS offers encryption as standard feature, at no extra cost.

6. Anticipate and bypass faults

ETERNUS constantly monitors disk health and pre-emptively copies data off failing disks before faults occur in many cases.  That’s faster and more efficient than using RAID to recover.

7. Use less power

ETERNUS disks can spin down when they are not being used (for example for online backup or archive).  That saves you a lot of money and helps you meet your carbon footprint targets.

In these tough times it’s unusual to have a product that’s faster than its competition while being competitively priced and offering great benefits.   It’s had great press reviews.  There’s no better time to consider it.

Over the past few weeks you will hopefully have seen our campaign around our new LIFEBOOK range.

The LIFEBOOK S710 offers the perfect balance between low weight and high-end performance. Weighing only 2.15kg it is one of the lightest modular 35.6cm (14-inch) notebooks. A flexible modular bay and a long battery life enable convenient working. Integrated optional 3G/UMTS and webcam enable connectivity anytime, anywhere!

represents the ultimate in portability, connectivity, performance and security. Whether its using the Fujitsu designed ECO button to preserve the battery life, or benefitting from the flexibility offered by the modular bay the LIFEBOOK S760 really does stand out from the crowd.

is a feature-rich, secure notebook with comprehensive performance, the perfect substitute for a desktop PC, it's equipped with a 39.6cm (15.6-inch) display and a great graphics solution for excellent viewing. A flexible modular bay concept enables the system to use a large variety of different accessories. There is also the option to have a dedicated graphics model for those customers, requiring more than standard Intel graphics.

In the Press...

The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK’s are taking the press by storm! Take a look at a selection of our latest reviews from the last month;

LIFEBOOK P770 – What Laptop
“Business users and anyone seeking dependable performance from a highly portable machine should certainly consider the LIFEBOOK P770, as there are very few flaws.”
“The star of the show, undoubtedly, is the 13.3-inch touchscreen. Unusually, it isn’t a resistive screen, but uses technology developed by graphics tablet-specialist Wacom. Thus, the screen can be used in digitiser mode with the pen, which is found tucked into the edge of the front wrist rest, or a gentle prod of the finger. It works better than any touchscreen we’ve come across in a tablet PC before. It’s highly accurate and responsive in either pen or finger mode, and it supports multi-touch, so you can zoom in and out of photos and websites with a pinch.”
“The base section of the chassis is superbly tough. There are two options when it comes to the lid section: magnesium-based, as in our review sample, or a sturdier, but slightly thicker and heavier lid made of compound materials.”
“We found the Scrollwheel remarkably ergonomic to use, more responsive than the scroll-wheel on the conventional touchpad, and easy to use with the touchpad. It came into its own for web browsing, but worked across all of the applications we tried.”
“The 13.3-inch LED-backlit display has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and is sharp, clear and bright. The matt anti-glare display means there’s no reflections at all, we were perfectly happy working with a window to the rear on a bright, sunny, spring day.”
See the full review here

LIFEBOOK T4410 – What Laptop
“The sharp 12.1-inch screen is one of the smallest in this group, but to counter this Fujitsu has included a stylus which tucks neatly into the chassis for storage. This can be used instead of your fingers for more accurate interaction, while a pair configurable buttons on the side can be set up to simulate mouse button clicks. The display is extremely sensitive and registers the stylus tip hovering over an inch over the screen, although this does show where you’re about to press and helps minimise mistakes.”

Take advantage of Fujitsu’s mono socket tower server, the PRIMERGY TX150 S7. It delivers industry leading levels of energy-efficient performance and is the world’s most energy-efficient in its class. Additionally, this all round-server has achieved fantastic reviews.  By purchasing the TX150 S7 your customer’s can benefit from all this at great value for money.

PRIMERGY TX150 S7 review

“Physically, the TX150 S7 is up to the usual high standard of build quality we expect from Fujitsu. It’s well designed internally, with easy access to key components, and there’s room to expand.”
“A well built, quiet entry-level server packing a mean specification and plenty of expansion options.”
“The TX150 S7 is extremely quiet…It’s a good choice for small offices.”
“Energy efficiency is a high priority. The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 sports the latest low-power Xeon L3426 and teams it up with single or dual 89% energy-efficient power supplies.”
“User maintenance is another key focus. Green “touch-points” are scattered throughout the server.”
“Storage options are very impressive”
“For general systems management, its ServerView Suite software focuses purely on server management. Consequently we found it much lighter to deploy and easier to use than Dell’s Management Console or HP’s Insight Control Edition, both of which try to manage everything on the network.”
