Fujitsu launches new servers

Dubai, July 15, 2010

Fujitsu, a global provider of ICT-based business solutions, has launched a new performance class of industry-standard servers to drive x86 economical benefits into the mission-critical computing realm.

The Primergy RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server offers high-levels of reliability for scale-up applications previously dominated by expensive and proprietary RISC/Unix systems, a statement said.

Its innovative ‘glue-less’ design combines with the service offerings and solutions of Fujitsu Dynamic Infrastructures, plus Intel Xeon 7500 processor series and the new Intel QuickPath Interconnect technology, to deliver mission-critical peace-of-mind at an affordable price, it added.

With server virtualization now moving into the mainstream, not to mention the consolidation of resource-hungry or ‘fat’ virtual machines, demand is set to grow significantly for flexible and reliable scale-up platforms that deliver a quicker return on investment, such as the Primergy RX900 S1, according to the statement.

The proliferation of business intelligence, data warehousing applications, plus other demanding high-performance back-end databases, makes reliable scale-up performance crucial for a wide range of business sectors.

Centralised mission-critical corporate workloads can be deployed on the RX900 S1 with peace-of-mind for extreme performance requirements, as the rack server scales up on demand inside a single 8 U chassis, and without the need for change or re-arrangement of rack infrastructures.

Processing power is assured by up to 64 processor cores, up to 2 terabytes of main memory, plus a highly-aggregated I/O bandwidth of more than 120 gigabytes.

Driving the computing performance and speed of connectivity of Fujitsu’s new eight-socket rack server is an innovative ‘glue-less’ design, where no additional hardware is necessary to run  all eight CPUs, therefore providing the shortest route between processors, memory modules and I/O hubs.

“Two market trends are combining which will drive the success of the Primergy RX900 S1,” explained Chandan Mehta, product manager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.

“Server virtualization is moving into the mainstream, while customers are reducing operational costs by consolidating older dual- and quad-socket servers, and replacing UNIX servers in favor of industry-standard flexibility and price performance.”

“The ‘glue-less’ design of the RX900 S1, and seamless scale-up of processor, memory and I/O capacities – within a single 8U server box for added investment protection – makes it the most compelling eight-core x86 server,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
