New Fujitsu PRIMERGY Servers Bring Tailored Top-Performance and Improved Energy Savings

Fujitsu EMEIA

News facts: 
 
  • New line-up of PRIMERGY servers provide approximately 20 percent more performance1 with Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors and support for DDR4 memory technology
  • New rack server model PRIMERGY RX2510 M2 designed for service providers and hosters
  • Fujitsu Cool-safe® Advanced Thermal Design and Trusted Platform Module 2.0 features save cooling costs and increase security
Munich, March 31, 2016 Fujitsu today announces a full refresh of its PRIMERGY dual-socket server line up from tower servers to nodes for high performance computing clusters, delivering new levels of performance combined with greater energy savings than ever before.

Despite IT challenges being the same across industries, Fujitsu recognizes there is no one-size-fits-all approach to the question of data center infrastructure. In line with its concept of Business-Centric Computing, Fujitsu’s broad portfolio and unique, consultative approach is designed to ensure that customers are able to choose server options that are an exact fit for their organization’s requirements. The new PRIMERGY line-up includes classical towers, racks, blades and slimline nodes for clusters, and dedicated rack models for service providers and hosters. The broad line-up provides a flexible enough choice to meet the needs of businesses large and small, across all vertical markets.

Uwe Neumeier, Vice President and Head of Data Center, EMEIA Product Business at Fujitsu, says: “You wouldn’t construct a building without solid foundations. It’s the same when you construct your ICT infrastructure. Data centers need to support our customers’ business requirements and business models. In our digital age, IT enables businesses to be more competitive, efficient and effective. Our X86 server line is a key enabler to businesses and supporting ICT processes, especially in the software defined data center space: Whether it’s in a medical practice, for an ERP system in a production plant or the collaboration platform connecting a global workforce. Without a solid business centric data center foundation, no enterprise can expect to enjoy the consistency and flexibility it needs to stay competitive and excel.”

Refreshed with newly released Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 product family processors with DDR4 memory technology with up to 2,400 MHz frequency, Fujitsu’s new-generation PRIMERGY dual-socket servers remain at the forefront of performance, boasting approximately 20 percent more system performance in comparison to the previous generation. This claim is backed by seven current benchmark world records1, demonstrating that Fujitsu dual-socket servers are not just fast in processing the workload at hand, but can also achieve this with an outstanding performance/energy consumption ratio.

Fujitsu PRIMERGY customers also enjoy reduced energy costs for system cooling thanks to Fujitsu’s Cool-safe® Advanced Thermal Design, with the threshold for safe operation raised from 40°C to 45°C for most available rack, tower and scale-out systems. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 option means IT infrastructure is further protected against attack, since the system is able to verify communication and manage encryption of data.

In support of the new-generation servers, Fujitsu has produced a video highlighting how the broad PRIMERGY server portfolio helps to tackle the diverse needs and challenges of customers from small local offices to big global acting corporations across industries. The video, on YouTube, is entitled Healthcare? Manufacturing? Education? Whatever, PRIMERGY serves your business best!Open a new window.

Notes to editors

In detail, Fujitsu has refreshed the following systems:

PRIMERGY RX2510 M2, RX2530 M2, RX2540 M2 and RX2560 M2
The PRIMERGY RX rack systems are versatile rack-optimized servers providing best-in-class performance and energy efficiency. Outstandingly low failure rates make them the perfect choice for running services vital to the daily business ranging from optimal systems for applications such as ERP systems in production facilities or core business apps. With focus on the needs of service providers and hosters Fujitsu also introduces the new PRIMERGY RX2510 M2.

PRIMERGY TX2560 M2
The PRIMERGY TX tower systems are robust and cost-efficient servers designed for use in the office space. Simple IT operations make them easy be handled by non-technically trained staff. And thanks to low power consumption and their quiet operation TX dual socket systems are the first choice for demanding office environments like branch offices or medical practices. Equipped with the new Trusted Platform Module 2.0 as standard, the TX systems ensure that system and sensitive data are save from harm.

PRIMERGY BX2560 M2 and BX2580 M2
The PRIMERGY BX blade systems the building bricks for converged IT infrastructures. Based on a modular architecture, blade systems excel in terms of density and scalability. This helps companies to simplify their infrastructure, achieve significant cost reductions and increase flexibility. Like an airport running from check-in to air traffic control all essential services and on top its internal platforms to communicate and collaborate based on just on one flexible system.

PRIMERGY CX2550 M2 and CX2570 M2
The PRIMERGY CX scale-out systems are specifically built for cloud computing scenarios, high performance computing, and complex calculations, just typical workloads for scientific environments such as universities and research institutions. Benefitting from Cool-safe® Advanced Thermal Design which allows problem-free operation by up to 45 degrees Celsius, the CX systems ease the issue of data center ventilation and help saving cooling costs.
