Fujitsu Selects Wind River Portfolio for RAID Next-Generation Disk Storage System
ALAMEDA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
River®, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, announced
that Fujitsu (News - Alert), a leading Japanese information and communication
technology company, relies on VxWorks® real-time operating system, Wind
River Linux and Wind River (News - Alert) Hypervisor for the development of their next
generation of ETERNUS RAID disk storage systems.
As the amount of data and traffic continues to explode across the
enterprise, network storage capacity and connectivity needs have grown.
The trend of multicore processing has also increased software
complexity, often equating to rising costs. Using virtualization, Wind
River Hypervisor enabled Fujitsu to partition their Intel (News - Alert)® multicore
processor and take advantage of both VxWorks with its 64-bit computing
support and Wind River Linux to create a flexible high performance
storage product delivered on time and on budget. The combination of Wind
River solutions, along with global customer support, helped Fujitsu
reduce costs and provided a scalable architecture for futre expansion.
The Fujitsu line of disk storage systems accommodates for all levels of
businesses, from small to medium sized businesses to large data centers
and virtualized environments that can serve capacity-intensive
environments with tremendous storage density. The new line of RAID disk
storage system products will be available in 2014.
"We needed a flexible and reliable development environment to manage
increasing software complexity resulting from multicore deployment as
well as secure performance. Wind River's comprehensive portfolio and
deep expertise helped us unlock multicore capabilities, and Fujitsu was
able to significantly shrink the time and cost for development," said
Mr. Shigeo Konno, general manager of the Storage Systems Division at
"Having a global leader like Fujitsu relying on a variety of our
technologies speaks to Wind River's trusted software and expertise,"
said Warren Kurisu, vice president of product marketing at Wind River.
"By providing a comprehensive set of solutions, including the industry
leading RTOS, embedded Linux and virtualization technologies and
support, Wind River allows Fujitsu to streamline the development process
and deliver powerful devices capable of handling the storage needs of
today and future networks."
