Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
Continuous availability with 2 clustered nodes in a 2U chassis
  • CX420 densely packs 2 server nodes, shared redundant power & cooling, plus 12 hot-plug storage drives into a highly compact chassis of only 2 height units. New functionalities for continuously available services and protection of storage against a wide range of failure scenarios in Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 operating systems perfectly combine with CX420 advanced hardware features like onboard node connectivity and shared access to local storage to provide an out-of-the-box foundation for clustered high availability configurations.

  • Entirely secured continuity of access to applications as well as data, all at an affordable price level, let customers setup their complete solution in an easy and quick manner. CX420 significantly lowers the entrance barriers for high availability of data and applications - no need to invest into expensive SAN storage - designed to operate with only limited expert knowledge - supporting both virtualized and physical server deployments.
Shared power and cooling
  • CX420 features central cooling fans and 2 commonly shared highly efficient hot-plug power supplies.

  • Shared components pay back in lower costs to buy and lower costs to own. Lower energy budgets for a comparable performance than for standard rack servers.
Full compliance to Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 certifications
  • CX420 and all its components fully comply to the Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 certifications, making sure that cluster operations such as failover or recovery of applications and data are working reliably.

  • The flexible configuration of server nodes, data capacity and networking options enable various high availibility solutions with Windows Server 2012 operating systems, which are covered by our certificates of conformance.
Easy serviceability
  • Hot-plug for server nodes, power supplies and disk drives enable enhanced availability and easy serviceability.

  • Each single server can be serviced without affecting the other nodes in the chassis.

Server Nodes

FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY CX272 S1
PRIMERGY CX272 S1 - rear viewThe PRIMERGY CX272 S1 as a 2U, half-wide server node with Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family CPUs and access to up to 12 shared local disks offers in-built cluster readiness for continuous operation when being used twice – as a cluster - in the PRIMERGY CX420 system. Highest data and application availability at decreased investment costs are achievable by leveraging the diverse roles and features of Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012, e. g. Storage Spaces and Failover Clustering, altogether avoiding purchase of expensive storage infrastructure.
