Fujitsu launches the new version of data protection appliance ETERNUS CS800 S4.

With the best price/performance ratio on the market  ETERNUS CS800 S4 is the ideal choice for customers with (upper) mid-size IT environments as well as for distributed sites or branch offices, who aim to completely or partially replace tape by disk.

The innovations of  ETERNUS CS800 S4 provides a number of enhancements compared to the  S3 generation like higher performance (hardware and software refresh), and more simplicity and flexibility (fewer models, more connectivity and capacity options). It will further strengthen our competitive advantages against our main competition, namely EMC Data Domain.

Some highlights of the ETERNUS CS800 S4  are:

  • More configuration options and higher flexibility based on just two models – “Entry” and “Scale”
  • Better scalability at lower costs (capacity/price gap between Entry and Scale model closed, maximum capacity increased by 30%)
  • Full functionality for the Entry model (Multi-protocol capability and Tape support added)
  • A broad number of software feature enhancements like in combination with Symantec NetBackup (e.g. to leverage ETERNUS CS800 replication) or CommVault Simpana
  • New hot spare option

General availability is planned for November 16th 2012.
