Fujitsu America, Inc.Open a new window today announces the availability of its new, fully refreshed range of dual- and quad-socket PRIMERGY® servers and octo-socket PRIMEQUEST® business critical server systems designed for Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. These combine exceptional performance, flexible configuration options, and optimized system designs to meet the changing computing demands driven by digitalization, including advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). With its latest server models, Fujitsu offers a full set of workload-optimized servers that make a perfect foundation for building secure, agile, multi-cloud data centers: the IT architecture for a human-centric, digital world.

Representing some of the biggest platform advancements of the decade, the latest server innovations are spearheaded by the multi-node Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY CX400 M4, which offers workload-specific computing power in a compact and modular form factor. The PRIMERGY CX400 M4 combines the density and efficiency of blade-like servers with the simplicity and cost efficiency of rack-based systems, and presents a versatile and future-oriented platform for building integrated systems and software-defined technologies. It is ideal for modular and density-optimized server infrastructures in virtual environments, for high-performance computing, cloud and hyper-converged network and storage environments.

Featuring the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, the entire new generation of Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST Business model server systems1 are designed for exceptional workload-specific performance and hardware-enhanced security. Built for trusted data service delivery, the new models represent significant leaps in I/O, memory, storage and network technologies. On top of their powerful performance and efficiency, the next-generation servers are optimized with a rich feature set to suit the broadest range of application scenarios across a range of industries, including core and business-critical digital business processes and databases, hyper-converged systems, cloud and virtual environments, and data-rich applications such as real-time big data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

Alex Lam, Vice President and Head of the North America Global Product Strategy Office, Fujitsu Technology and Business of America, Inc., says: “Digital transformation is impacting how CIOs approach their traditional compute requirements in the datacenter and is forcing a rethink on how to address the challenging new demands around computing performance, scalability, and operational efficiency. To meet the challenge of today’s digital transformation, Fujitsu has developed its new PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST system line-ups to address the wide range of needs of today’s customers, be it in the traditional datacenter to the cloud, and to even new compute use cases being driven by new technology development in the areas of IoT, AI, and high-performance computing (HPC).”

Jennifer Huffstetler, Senior Director, Data Center Product Management at Intel, says: “The combination of Intel and Fujitsu technology results in compelling data center products that enable our shared customers to pursue digital transformation. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors deliver increased levels of performance, scalability, agility and security to further accelerate this digital transformation.”

New-generation systems feature multiple technology advances
Technical features include enhanced DDR4 memory modules and up to 6 TB capacity in quad socket PRIMERGY server2, flexible configuration options to support mix-and-match of storage drive bays with enormous capacity and the most advanced graphics processing units (GPUs) to further accelerate the most demanding high-performance computing, hyperscale, and enterprise datacenter workloads. Connectivity is provided through onboard LAN for Ethernet, as well as DynamicLoM for extended requirements.

The PRIMEQUEST server pushes the performance envelope of SAP HANA® up to 12TB of the in-memory database.

Embedded management features let IT departments deploy, monitor and support the servers remotely, while the new Fujitsu ServerView® Infrastructure Software Manager (ISM)3 allows for the consolidated, efficient operation and management of converged infrastructures and facility equipment that runs in datacenters and server rooms.
