Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 All Flash Storage

All Flash Storage Array - Fujitsu AF250 S2

The Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 is an incredibly fast and flexible all-flash storage system for the next generation data centre. At an affordable price point, it makes flash the new normal for all tier-1 applications in enterprise IT. Response times are ultra-low – in fact, they set performance records. The Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 ETERNUS AF is also built to be smart, with easily configurable automated quality of service to ensure each app gets the performance it needs, plus flexible deduplication and compression that can be turned on when required – and off when not. It keeps data safe as houses, with full-fledged DR with mirroring and automated transparent failover. Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2

Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 Overview

The ETERNUS AF250 S2 is the ideal choice for application scenarios with demanding data and performance requirements. The system delivers impressive IOPS performance with lowest latency even at full load. Thus it offers a solution that resolves all performance issues in critical applications – such as real-time business analytics or VDI environments - without requiring any complicated tuning. It also fits best as general purpose storage for all Tier-1 applications in small and mid-sized companies. The Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 provides excellent hardware redundancy along with dual hot-plug PSUs (850W), the Fujitsu ETERNUS AF250 S2 comes with dual controllers functioning in active/active mode. Data ports provide two expansion slots which now support dual-port 32Gbps FC modules, as well as 8/16Gbps FC and 10GbE copper or SFP+ iSCSI options.
