Fujitsu introduces a fresh approach to data protection in virtualised datacentres with the ETERNUS CS200c S3, a backup solution ideally suited for hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI). This new integrated backup appliance offers a simplified, cost-efficient approach to the headache of protecting data across complex physical and virtual IT environments. It joins Fujitsu’s range of ready-to-use ETERNUS CS appliances, which are designed to minimise business risk from missed backups, post-disaster recovery failures and the corruption of sensitive data.
As a fully integrated solution for the backup, archiving and recovery of unlimited numbers of servers in physical, virtual and cloud-based datacentres, the ETERNUS CS200c S3 delivers an all-in-one data protection concept for converged and hyperconverged systems. This means that organisations can now virtualise their critical applications while meeting strict data protection service level agreements (SLAs).
Uwe Neumeier, Vice President and Head of Data Center, EMEIA Product Business at Fujitsu, comments: “Hyperconverged and software-defined systems enable real-time digital business, and although they have some data protection capabilities built in, they often store backup copies on the same platform. This means that critical business data is not safe from corruption or deletion. Our new appliance closes this gap, by providing a reliable backup and recovery solution across the entire lifecycle of each virtual machine, even within a hyperconverged solution – meaning that business-critical data is continually protected and business continuity can be achieved even if disaster strikes.”
ETERNUS CS200c S3 is preconfigured and customisable out of the box. It dramatically cuts initial setup times for data protection solutions from days to hours. By automating repetitive or highly complex tasks, it streamlines continuity of operation and disaster recovery processes. Customers can create rapid-fire, persistent hardware snapshots allowing near instant recovery, and perform off-host backups for hundreds of virtual machines. A policy-based approach ensures no virtual machine goes unprotected, while optimising resource utilisation.
Powered by industry-leading Commvault software, ETERNUS CS200c S3 leverages deep integration into virtual infrastructures supporting all major hypervisors including Microsoft’s Hyper-V and VMware’s vSphere, as well as Commvault’s advanced data management capabilities for radically simplified data management.
Sangram Dange, GM, Data Protection and Recovery Business Unit, Commvault says: “Commvault has worked together with Fujitsu to simplify backup and data management for Hyperconverged Infrastructures (HCI)”. The combination of Commvault’s data protection software within Fujitsu’s ETERNUS CS200c appliance provides a simple ‘out of box’ approach to managing data in virtual infrastructures including backing up hyper-converged infrastructures. By integrating Commvault’s powerful capabilities for protecting virtual environments into an easy to purchase, deploy, support, and scale ETERNUS CS200c appliance, we help users of HCIs enjoy simple and secure data operations end-to-end.”
