Contract announcement Sponeta: Eternus storage cluster with transparent failover
As part of the renewal of its IT infrastructure, the sporting goods manufacturer decided for two central Fujitsu ETERNUS storage systems with SSD and SAS storage. The SSD storage in combination with the auto tiering function brought a speed boost to the existing applications. The Fujitsu Eternus storage cluster (ACTIVE-ACTIVE mirroring of the systems) enables load distribution across two Eternus storage systems in physically separate server rooms. In addition, one VMware host is used per server room, which provides all virtual machines in case of an emergency.
If a server room fails due to an emergency (fire, water, theft, etc.) or if a room is not available due to a planned measure (update, conversion), it is possible to switch to the second server room in a timely manner. This reduces the probability of failure of the company's important applications and data to an acceptable level.
