  • 17. Modular Architecture reduces Costs of Growth Pay as you grow with a modular architecturePain point Typically high end storage have a monolithic architecture. IT must decide for a specific model with a specific capacity range This leads to high upfront investments (pay now – use later) Bigger models are purchased than necessary to avoid migration costs Too big and too small is too costlyWhat we The “Flexible Data Safe” concept extended to the high enddeliver Unique modular and flexible architecture in the high-end segment Flexible growth with business needs No upfront decision for a specific model needed, pay as you grow No unplanned migration cost due to capacity limits 16 Copyright 2011 FUJITSU

ETERNUS DX8700 S2 – Modular Building Block System ETERNUS DX 8700 is based on DX8700 S2 the same modular system architecture as the entire product family High-end functionality is in the DX8700 controller All other components are the same as in other ETERNUS DX models Standard 19” rack Same disks Same disk shelves Same management software 18 Copyright 2011 FUJITSU
  • 20. No hidden Costs – no bad Surprises Simple and transparent license modelPain point Bad surprises through complex licensing schemes Costs the future storage demand is not transparent Hidden costs come on the table during data growth forcing unplanned, short term spending (pay now or stop growing)What we A completely transparent software license modeldeliver Not linked to capacity utilization Simply based on the amount of controllers Customers can start small and grow with capacity without hidden costs Budget security for future growth according customer needs 19 Copyright 2011 FUJITSU
