FUJITSU Server BS2000
The BS2000 innovation platform
Thanks to a customer-centric development strategy, which combines continuity with innovation, the BS200 multiprocessor operating system has been a most robust system for decades, known for high performance, reliability and efficient mainframe operation. Fujitsu has put a special focus on the consistent further development of the entire system, including hardware, operating system, middleware and services, not to mention that innovations are always realized in close cooperation with customers. The core of the development strategy encompasses innovation, integration, openness, cost efficiency and continuity.
FUJITSU Server BS2000 – SE infrastructure
Fujitsu has recently developed FUJITSU Server BS2000 SE series which offers a server infrastructure consisting of three server lines, SE700, SE500 and SE300. This SE infrastructure covers various usage scenarios in a wide range of combinations for both mainframe and applications as used in the open world. Besides BS2000 it is possible for Linux, Windows, VMware or other Hypervisor-Products to profit from the established Mainframe-operational concepts.
The key features of this series are:
- No blackouts even at full load, replacemen processors are available
- 24/7 availability for all of your data
- x86-based Application Units for operation under Linux, Windows or VMware
- Easy control through a convenient, browser-based interface
- High-efficiency system, low power consumption
- High performance processors
- Integration of the internationally established, techniques of the predecessors
This platform has excellent scale-up and scale-out performance features, ensuring that users can manage their application workloads quickly, whichever technology is involved and can work efficiently and reliably. An important objective in developing the SE series was a standardized management concept which offers the customer clear added-value thanks to the very high degree of integration and very economic IT operations.
This SE server line integrates the established techniques and advantages of its predecessors. The heart of the SE series is the /390-based server units (SU), the x86-based server units, the net unit (NU) and the management unit (MU). The processors provide a great system-wide performance, large configuration options, high level availability and –last but not least- a very low power consumption. All SU700 and SU500 models are equipped with a standby processor which is activated dynamically if a processor fails and serves as a replacement for the defective processor. The applications can continue running without any interruption and without reduction in performance. All components are integrated in a 19” standard rack and are sent to the customer on a "ready-to-use” basis. Besides of the classic Mainframe-operation it is possible to e.g. consolidate every application component of a IT-Service on a mutual platform.
Grow without changing
The excellent multi-processor features and the associated enormous system scaling – currently from 12 to 5,000 RPF 1) - guarantee growth into the high-end range without having to change the system. The introduction of the new SE series greatly increases the performance range even more.
Relative Performance Factor (1 RPF ~ 1.5 MIPS)
The SE server with top-level performance and flexibility for the simultaneous operation of several operating systems based on /390 architecture and high-end Intel x86 technology.
The SE server in the medium-performance range with the same advantages as in the high-end line SE700.
The SE server for the entry-level and medium performance range for the simultaneous operation of several operating systems exclusively based on high-end Intel x86 technology, but with the same benefits regarding manageability, integration, flexibility and availability.
