New FUJITSU Server Unlocks Megatrend Benefits by Reducing the Upgrade Premium

Fujitsu CEMEA&I

Munich, May 12, 2014

News facts: 
 
  • Fujitsu launches the new FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M1 to meet the needs of a hyper- connected world, where the megatrends of cloud, big data, mobility and social dominate
  • Fujitsu eases the burden of ICT consolidation, offering a 20 percent1 selling price discount for displaced (certified destruction/donation) Fujitsu servers – up to two discounted new units for each one displaced


Fujitsu today delivers the platform of choice for business-critical back-end services – offering superior levels of performance, memory capacity and reliability – while making it even more cost effective for businesses to consolidate and replace obsolete technology. Until March 31, 2015, customers can apply to receive a 20 percent1 discount on standard selling prices for all FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY models, when they displace old servers with new generation models. 

A hyperconnected world is driving a new industrial revolution, and this era requires an intelligent server backbone, such as the new FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M1.2 People, information, processes,  infrastructure and computing systems are meshing together. Massive amounts of information are being generated, creating new knowledge and a huge potential for economic growth. The impacts of increased requirements for storage capacity, computing power and network speeds are enormous. For many data centers, IT infrastructure and operations are reaching a breaking point. 

The FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M1 industry-standard x86 rack server with four sockets, provides groundbreaking performance, the highest reliability in the industry-standard class, and impressive efficiency. This combination turns the server into the ideal platform for running transactional applications, business intelligence (BI) workloads, back-end and in-memory databases, as well as data-intensive applications. Plus, it substantially simplifies carrying out infrastructure-related tasks like server virtualization and consolidation, and allows for reducing operational expenses by up to 70 percent as well as a 3:1 consolidation ratio compared to previous generations.3 Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is also reduced, with the positive impact of discounted cost price due to the Fujitsu Server Trade-in Program. 

Performance has doubled over the preceding comparable generation, thanks to innovative design plus the latest Intel Xeon E7-4800/8800 v2 product family with up to 60 cores. Meanwhile, memory capacity has tripled with up to 6 TB memory, for complex, data-demanding workloads such as real-time business analytics. In addition to standard RAS features, such as built-in redundancy and hot-pluggable components, the PRIMERGY RX4770 M1 features advanced resilient system and memory technologies that integrate processor, firmware, and software layers to help diagnose fatal errors, contain faults, and automatically recover to keep the server operating.
