Fujitsu Introduces New Mission Critical x86 PRIMEQUEST Servers

Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited

News facts:
-   Fujitsu’s most-reliable x86 servers are perfectly suited for highly demanding, mission-critical deployments where unplanned downtime is not an option

Hong Kong, June 13, 2016

Mission critical models are at the forefront of an all-new x86 server line-up from Fujitsu. New FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST models provide the highest-ever levels of performance and stability from industry standard servers, targeting demanding enterprise computing environments that have all but eliminated unplanned downtime.

The new-generation FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST systems have been updated with the latest Intel®Xeon®processor E7-8800/4800 v4 product family, reaching unprecedented levels of performance from x86-based servers, as proven by several benchmarks in general and technical computing as well as business processing1. With the latest enhancements, customers can now be more confident in their choice of mission-critical computing technology based on truly open standards as a viable alternative to UNIX-based systems, in terms of system performance, reliability and security.

Fujitsu’s top-of-the-range x86-based servers are designed to provide a new path for customers currently running highly demanding environments on UNIX based systems, such as SAP ERP systems, and Oracle databases. PRIMEQUEST is certified for SAP’s in-memory database, SAP HANA®.

Michael Keegan, SVP and Head of Product Business EMEIA at Fujitsu, comments: “We are building servers that customers can bet their business on. The new-generation of PRIMEQUEST servers are the highest performance x86 servers ever produced by Fujitsu – underlining their position as the bedrock on which organizations can build their digitally transformed business. Thanks to a combination of fantastic performance and lower than ever operating costs, we are seeing more and more customers modernizing their UNIX-based systems, underlining the compelling business reasons to choose PRIMEQUEST x86 servers.”

Derek Yiu, General Manager, Solutions and Services Business, Fujitsu Hong Kong, says, “FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST has once again raised the bar for business operational efficiency and performance. As more and more enterprises accelerate their digital transformation journey, IT departments are challenged more than ever to optimize resources and help their organizations thrive in the digital business era. Fujitsu remains committed to helping our customers harness business opportunities arising from the latest trends in cloud, big data, Internet of Things and mobility.”

With PRIMEQUEST, enterprises can gain new levels of x86-based performance with the twofold economic benefits of both lower hardware costs and reduced energy consumption than with systems based on proprietary architectures. This is because PRIMEQUEST delivers mission-critical capabilities such as hot pluggable I/O units, Physical Partitioning and Dynamic Reconfiguration.

As end user demand for data center infrastructure performance and capacity continues to increase, Fujitsu is enabling scale-up with the new PRIMEQUEST 2000 series third generation servers. New models, available to order immediately, feature more processor cores and more last level cache than their predecessors. This means PRIMEQUEST is also ideally suited to mission-critical applications such as in-memory applications – where results can be processed faster, helping accelerate business velocity, as well as crucial real-time compute operations where unplanned system downtime can be deadly and expensive, such as running billing applications for telecommunications providers.

Fujitsu is introducing its fastest and most robust x86-based models just as the market reaches the tipping point where x86-based architecture is poised to climb past 50 percent of overall server sales, according to the latest predictions in the Gartner Forecast: Servers, All Countries, 2013-2020, 1Q16 Update – published on April 8, 2016 by Gartner. Furthermore, research by Veeam2 confirms that mission-critical workloads are accounting for an ever-rising share of data center infrastructure workloads, underlining the need for robust, hardened x86-based systems.

Pricing and availability

FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST systems are available directly from Fujitsu and via distribution partners. Prices vary by region, model and configuration.
