Fujitsu DX500 S3 Features
The Fujitsu DX500 S3 ETERNUS is the largest and most powerful of all the S3 range supporting up to 22 2u drive enclosures with either 2.5″ or 3.5″ drives. The mid-range Fujitsu ETERNUS DX500 S3 is designed to provide maximum IOP’s, low latency, enhanced data protection and reliability. High processor performance, large system caches, fast disk interfaces and networking connectivity
are just some of the highlights within the Fujitsu DX500 S3 family hardware.
By supporting AST (automated storage tiering) the Fujitsu DX500 S3 allows you to move data automatically from the performance tier (SSD), through SAS to nearline high-capacity SAS drives. All this is done by setting up some basic parameters and the system manges the rest transparently.
Host connectivity is handled by a variety of configurations:
- 4-8 ports [iSCSI
- FCoE, Ethernet(10Gbit/s]
- 4-16 ports [FC]
- 8-16 ports [Ethernet(1Gbit/s)
