Fujitsu has brought to market the ETERNUS 3000 Archive Storage, the company's latest autonomous data storage system.
The product consists of an ETERNUS 3000 disk array system, ETERNUS LT130/LT160 Linear Tape-Open (LTO) tape drive library, ETERNUS SP5000 network storage server, and server software Content Archive Manager.
The new storage system can automatically sort data and discretely select the best suited storage device for data, archiving frequently accessed data in the high-speed disk array system and less frequently used data in the slower but cost-effective tape drive.
The system can improve data access speed and cut storage costs by as much as 70%, according to Fujitsu. The system also incorporates WORM (Write Once Read Many) architecture to prevent falsification and accidental erasing of important corporate data.
Prices start at 20,480,000 yen ($187,890). Shipment is slated for August 20. The company aims to sell 400 systems over the next three years.
