Fujitsu ETERNUS Storage Systems Selected as Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand '12

Tokyo, Feb 1, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced that the entry-level disk arrays in its ETERNUS series of storage systems, consisting of ETERNUS DX60 S2, ETERNUS DX80 S2, and ETERNUS DX90 S2, have been selected by Kawasaki City to be included in its "Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand" for fiscal 2012.

About Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand '12

Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand is a program instituted by the city of Kawasaki, Japan to support manufacturing for a low-carbon society. The program recognizes Kawasaki-originated products and technology that contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions throughout their lifecycles. After three years of experimental period, the city government of Kawasaki is now officially implementing the Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand starting this fiscal year.

Reason for the Selection

The ETERNUS DX60 S2, ETERNUS DX80 S2, and ETERNUS DX90 S2 entry-level disk arrays in the ETERNUS series offer a standard-feature eco-mode with a technology called "massive array of idle disks" (MAID)(1) that rotates the disks only when necessary. They also employ high-efficiency power units, and vary the frequency of fan rotations in stages to minimize power consumption when in use without sacrificing performance.

On the performance front, the ETERNUS DX80 S2 has achieved the highest performance in its class(2) according to the SPC Benchmark(TM)(3) . Furthermore, intelligent use of energy-saving technologies ensures that the array will reduce CO2 emissions over its lifecycle by 46%(4) per gigabyte of storage capacity compared to the previous model.

(1) Massive array of idle disks: By stopping the rotation of disks that are rarely used, less electricity is consumed and disk lifespan is increased.
(2) Highest performance in class: Based on the SPC- Benchmark-1(TM), which measures random access performance and the SPC- Benchmark-2(TM), which measures sequential access performance. (According to Fujitsu research, as of January 28, 2013. The URLs below link to benchmark results.)

(3) SPC Benchmark: A benchmark established by a non-profit organization that evaluates the performance of storage from participating companies in the storage industry.
(4) 46% reduction: Calculated in accordance with the standards of Low CO2 Kawasaki Brand '12.

The 4th International DevOps Summit, co-located with16th International Cloud Expo – being held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY – announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's large...
The adoption of the Internet Of Things (IoT) is growing and its growth is synonymous with the growth of cloud. As per predictions from IDC: IoT and the Cloud: Within the next five years, more than 90% of all IoT data will be hosted on service provider platforms as cloud computing reduces the complexity of supporting IoT "Data Blending." This means that any organization that wanted to transform themselves using IoT has to automatically embrace the cloud too, especially the public cloud. This b...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness,...

“We help people build clusters, in the classical sense of the cluster. We help people put a full stack on top of every single one of those machines. We do the full bare metal install," explained Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 15th Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In this demo at 15th Cloud Expo, John Meza, Product Engineer at Esri, showed how Esri products hook into Hadoop cluster to allow you to do spatial analysis on the spatial data within your cluster, and he demonstrated rendering from a data center with ArcGIS Pro, a new product that has a brand new rendering engine.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute.
