Product Information

Full Description

Details

ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser simplifies setup of disk storage systems and the management of ETERNUS storage environments. Its ability to manipulate complex storage configurations and settings, via a user friendly graphical interface, enables you to implement storage environments with ease and without high-level skills. Once operational ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser supports stable system operation by providing centralized management for the entire storage environment, including servers and fiber channel switches. ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser also provides storage system lifecycle functions, from configuration to maintenance. The resulting improved availability and stable operation will reduce your operation management costs, support green IT and enable implementation of virtualized IT systems.

  • Allocating full capacity disk space to servers with limited physical disk capacity
  • Visualization and threshold monitoring provides presumption of physical disk supplement and prevents physical disk shortage
  • Visualization the relationship each elements, such as applications to storage systems, which compose customers business
  • Stop disks rotation when not in use
  • Visualization of power consumption and temperature
  • Visualization of historical performance of disk storage systems and fiber channel switches
  • Provides workload conditions, bottlenecks and alarm with the threshold setting
  • Visualization of physical connection for each storage systems and servers including VM guest level
  • Configuration of logical connection of servers, FC switches and storage systems
  • Automated data movement to appropriate drive through policy-based profiles
  • Start with a small storage system
    Thin Provisioning enables you to start by using limited physical disk capacity while allocating the full capacity requirement as virtual disks to servers. Physical disks can then be added as usage demands without effect on server operation. This reduces both initial and ongoing costs as well as power consumption. ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser provides threshold monitoring which prevents physical disk capacity shortages. Its visualization of physical capacity changes allows system administrators to predict shortages and provide capacity expansion in a timely manner. This ensures operation halts are avoided.
  • Device configuration and resource relationship visualization
    ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser displays the relationships and linkages between disk drives and other resources, such as application server file systems, connection paths, mirrored disks and databases, to be displayed in a single display. This provides administrators with an accurate understanding of all resource relationships. It also allows them to more accurately proceed with storage expansions, resolve failures and recover operational status without problems. All data displayed can be saved in files and useful for off-line configuration checking and for comparison with previous configurations.
  • Power saving storage
    With ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser, the eco-mode function of ETERNUS Disk storage systems can be managed with a full understanding of servers and disk storage system requirements. Eco-mode reduces storage power consumption by stopping disk rotation when not in use. In addition, with some systems, power consumption efficiency and temperature can be displayed and checked or written to file.
  • Understanding performance bottlenecks
    The ability to display performance information from fiber channel switches and disk storage systems in graphical form means system administrators can understand device operation status, workload conditions and identify resource bottlenecks. In addition, threshold settings enable ETERNUS SF to sound an alarm when devices reach set limits. Further all the information gathered by these functions can be stored in file formats that enable the production of periodic reports.
  • San management for the entire storage system
    ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser displays all physical connection conditions for each storage device and for each device linkage including VM guests. This helps avoid mis-operation and the implementation of incorrect settings during SAN installation and operation.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
