The data de-duplication technology will be available across the whole Eternus CS range.

Fujitsu has announced the availability of data de-duplication across its range of Eternus CS data protection appliances.

The data de-duplication capabilities will be available pre-installed on the Eternus range, to give medium and enterprise level users more efficient use of their storage.

Data de-duplication allows organisations to cut the volume of data they have stored, and to rationalize their use of storage tiers, cutting disk-based storage in favour of cheaper tape, typically cutting disk requirements by 90% or more, and making savings on storage administration costs. Data de-duplication can also improve network performance for backup of branch offices, reducing network bandwidth requirements for data replication between sites by a factor of 20 or more.

Fujitsu also announced the new entry-level Eternus CS800, targeted at mid-market customers. The Eternus CS800 has been designed for rapid implementation of data de-duplication, with factory pre-configuration, and compatibility with all leading backup software solutions.

Dr Helmut Beck, vice president Storage Business at Fujitsu Technology Solutions commented: "Increasingly, mid-market customers are turning to disk backup to benefit from the greater flexibility and ease of management. By offering the new ETERNUS CS800 model with de-duplication, Fujitsu provides an affordable solution that is especially attractive to the mid-market. We are also enhancing the ETERNUS CS high-end systems by adding powerful de-duplication capabilities to further strengthen the systems' outstanding data protection capabilities."
