FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY SX960 S1

The Fujitsu PRIMERGY SX960 Storage Blade offers direct-attached storage for the PRIMERGY BX Blade Server with support of up to 10 hot-plug SAS or SATA hard disks. The storage blade can be inserted, like a server blade, in the front of the blade server housing. It can be hot-plugged and used with various types of server blades. The BX Blade Servers' midplanes offer PCI Express connections to the adjacent server blades, enabling top-quality memory access without using additional cables. The PRIMERGY SX960 Storage Blade has an onboard LSI MegaRAID controller with 512 MB Write Back Cache and optional Battery Backup Unit, for top performance and data security.
Use Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 or other software products of your choice to turn the SX960 into an iSCSI SAN for all severs in the enclosure. As part of a network-attached storage appliance, Windows Storage Server 2012 enhances the traditional file serving capabilities and delivers excellent economics for a shared storage solution by leveraging industry standard hardware matched with robust storage capabilities. It delivers continuous availability that is designed to protect from a range of failures and prevent downtime in a scalable and reliable manner.
