The company scales down its enterprise SAN to fit smaller data centers and makes it as easy to set up as any Windows-based server.

Fujitsu Computer Systems announced a new storage appliance for the midrange market April 7, one that contains much of the same hardware and software that makes up the company's high-end storage line.

Fujitsu's new Eternus 4000 Model 300 SAN Business Continuity appliance employs, on a much smaller scale, the company's trademark storage system, replication software, installation services and bandwidth, Dave Egan, the company's senior vice president for storage, told eWEEK.
