Every four years athletes from around the world assemble in one city to celebrate the olympic games. During days full with competitions they try to be the best and to get the popular medals in gold, silver and bronze representing the Olympic champions.
Our ETERNUS storage systems are also champions. Of course not Olympic ones and we do not have to wait four years to re-achieve the gold medal in performance. Our latest performance champion is the recently launched ETERNUS DX200 S4 system which provides the best performance-to-economics ratio in the industry, confirmed by the Storage Performance Council’s SPC-1 Benchmark – the recognized independent standard for comparing the performance of storage systems.
But performance is not the only thing which makes our ETERNUS hybrid and all-flash storage systems outstanding. In a world where data is in the center of the business, storage systems are asked to deliver more than just access to data.
One of the biggest challenges is unpredictable data growth and the implications if storage has to deal with more users, more data, and more business transactions. ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX systems are able to scale smoothly beyond the limits and to keep performing superior whatever you throw at them.
In a century where “time is money” you should not waste your time in managing your storage systems but rely on systems that mostly look after themselves. With Automated Quality of Service ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX offer a feature that makes sure that your storage resources are always adapted to your business priorities, fulfilling required SLAs.
Last but not least you should also think about reliability. Loosing data is not an option and therefore it is inevitable to look for storage systems that recover quickly from disasters with no loss of business data. ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX offer multiple possibilities to ensure continuous access to your business data. The highest level of availability can be achieved when introducing an ETERNUS storage cluster to perform transparent failover in case of a disaster.
What’s more, based on the same architecture ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX can perfectly interact, for example in a storage cluster, and are managed by the same management platform ETERNUS SF.
To sum it up “Higher, faster, further” can be translated into “Growth, continuity, reliability” for our storage champions ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX. To visualize what ETERNUS AF and ETERNUS DX stand for we kindly invite you to take a look on two flash animations that show in an almost cinematic approach their benefits with metaphors that fit neatly into the narrative.
