Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2

Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2

The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 enterprise disk storage system, with Intel® Xeon® processors is purpose-built for large enterprises. Enterprises are no longer forced to anticipate future capacity demand levels and to select a specific high-end model with limited data-capacity range. The unique modular architecture offers flexibly scaling according to business needs. With minimum initial costs customers can start with a two controller module system and four drive enclosures. Maximum performance with up to 128 front-end host ports can be obtained by scaling up to eight controller modules. FC, FCoE and iSCSI host interfaces can operate in mixed configurations.

FujitsuSoftware license pricing is based on the number of controllers used only. This transparent licensing model allows gradual capacity upgrading to the maximum drive count without resulting in capacity based price increases. Fujitsu’s Flexible Data Management concept enables a higher level of automation for storage tiering, including support for SAS, Nearline SAS and SSD drives that ensure optimum service levels while reducing the overall total cost of storage.

System robustness based on redundant components and local data copy options ensure high availability for today’s non-stop business. Multiple remote replication options protect all valuable data assets against site outages.


  • 2 – 8 controllers
  • 4 – 128 host ports
  • Upto 3,072 2.5″ / 1,536 3.5″ disk drives

Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2The Fujitsu ETERNUS DX8700 S2 is the ultimate high performance disk storage system that provides 7×24 uptime, allied to guaranteed application IOP performance with built-in redundancy as standard, ensures data is protected at all times and zero downtime that today’s business dictate in a global world.
