Fujitsu today announces gains of more than 70 per cent in net bandwidth for its versatile datacenter server line, the PRIMERGY BX900 S2. Blades for the “Dynamic Cube” system now include Mellanox Fourteen Data Rate (FDR) InfiniBand components, delivering unrivaled bandwidth improvements and making the PRIMERGY BX900 the first choice for datacenter applications demanding the highest-speed network connectivity and lowest latency.
By adding Mellanox InfiniBand capability, the fastest networking technology available today, PRIMERGY BX900 S2 blade servers realize superior application response time and underline an enhanced ability to fulfill service level agreements, no matter how high the bandwidth load on a datacenter, as InfiniBand-enabled PRIMERGY BX920 blades can achieve bandwidth of up to 3Tbps per chassis.
Combining InfiniBand with the highly-flexible dense capacity of the PRIMERGY BX900 series, Fujitsu enables datacenters to enjoy overall savings, through system consolidation from larger, less powerful server racks, and reduced floor-space requirements. Guaranteeing investment protection, Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 systems are fully backward compatible with existing datacenter hardware.
The latest innovation in a five-year partnership between Fujitsu and Mellanox, the introduction of FDR InfiniBand means that PRIMERGY BX900 blade systems are particularly suited to cloud computing, database, financial services, virtualization and high performance computing, where the highest performance, efficiency and scalability are at a premium.
Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY BX900 S2 blade servers with Mellanox FDR InfiniBand components are available to order in March and start shipping in April 2012.
