FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY CX270 S2

The Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY CX270 S2 is a dual socket server node for ambitious High Performance Computing, Analytics and Visualization solutions. Two server nodes can be embedded in the PRIMERGY CX400 S2 enclosure, only using 2U height in conventional standard datacenter racks.
Each half-wide server node with Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 product family CPUs, 16 DIMM slots, 3 PCIe I/O slots features an optional GPGPU from NVIDIA® or an Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor, enabling a ten-fold performance boost in HPC applications. Moreover, using shared power supplies and cooling fans, the PRIMERGY CX270 S2 condensed half-wide form factor optimizes large data center scale-out deployment, resulting in less rack space used and lower power envelopes as compared to standard rack servers.

Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
Two CX270 S2 server nodes, each with two multi-core processors, up to 1,024 GB memory, optional high-end GPGPU/coprocessor from Nvidia or Intel, and a local storage capacity of up to four drives can be smartly packaged into a condensed 2U rack enclosure, using shared cooling and power. 50% less rack space used as compared to equivalently configured standard rack servers.
Double the server density results in more performance achieved per rack unit.
With GPGPU or coprocessor support, up to 10 times faster execution per server node in HPC computing is achieved.
CX270 S2 server nodes come w/o local fans or power supplies. Instead they share central cooling fans and hot plug power supplies per 2 U chassis. Decreased energy consumption, lower investment, yet still redundant operation.
Lower energy budgets for a comparable performance as with standard rack servers.
4 to 12 core processors and Turbo Boost 2.0
PCIe Gen 3 support
16 DIMMs per server node with up to 1,024 GB DDR3 memory and up to 1,866 MHz DRAM bandwidth.
Up to 70% performance improvement over Xeon 56xx series, more depending on applications.
60 % improvement in I/O bandwidth for heavy load I/O communication.
Its flexible memory dimension fits to any application requirement.
1 optional GPGPU/coprocessor compute module per CX270 S2 server node, selected from the market leading NVIDIA® Tesla™ K-series, or from the Intel® Xeon Phi™ product family, both in between the world’s fastest parallel computing (co)processors for high performance computing (HPC).
Up to 1.3 TFLOPS of double precision double the performance of the predecessors. World's most energy efficient supercomputers with up to 2,500 MFLOPS/W are equipped with these modules.
High performance GPGPUs/coprocessors from Nvidia or Intel make them ideal for seismic processing, biochemistry simulations, weather and climate modeling, signal processing, computational finance, CAE, CFD, data analytics and other high performance computing areas.
Combined with density optimized CX270 S2 server nodes, they optimize large data center scale-out deployment for less rack space used and lower power envelopes.
