Fujitsu America has joined hands with Quantum to offer a joint solution for large enterprise and mainframe backup and archive storage to North American customers.
The solution leverages Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 unified data protection appliance for deduplicated disk-based backup and Quantum Scalar LTO intelligent tape libraries for data retention.
They will be targeting industry verticals such as Federal, Media & Entertainment and Energy in the U.S. IT market.
The combination of Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 backup and Quantum Scalar LTO tape archive enables mainframe customers to address storage workflow challenges and better manage their data storage requirements and costs.
Together, these technologies use a tiered approach that leverages primary disk, deduplicated disk backup and archive tape to balance access speed with capacity needs and cost requirements. This allows enterprises seeking to consolidate legacy mainframe VTLs to replace old, proprietary tape libraries with more economical deduplication and LTO tape.
Fujitsu ETERNUS CS8000 unified data protection appliance incorporates Quantum’s deduplication technology to consolidate backup and archiving infrastructures of open systems and mainframes.
Alex Lam, vice president, Enterprise Business, Fujitsu America, said: “Fujitsu and Quantum have achieved great success partnering in EMEA to deliver backup and archiving solutions to our customers, which includes enterprises with large mainframe environments.”
