The 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.

Features & Benefits

Características Benefits
High Availability
  • Cost efficient cluster-ready CX server node with
  • - Apart from two onboard GbE ports, an integrated cluster node interconnect via midplane is standard
  • - Expansion of storage drive access via internal 6 Gbps SAS Host Bus Adapter plus standard SAS expander

  • High Availability with a small budget and little expert knowledge as all hardware prerequisites for an entirely clustered solution are delivered standard
High IT uptime
  • Enhanced standard features of Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012:
  • - Failover clustering with activated Cluster Shared Volumes
  • - Storage spaces incl. mirroring of defined shares
  • - Operation with real as well as virtualized applications leveraging the integrated Hyper-V role

  • High IT uptime for data and applications granted by standard operating system features w/o hidden price uplifts and with freedom to run even virtualized environments
Save on investment costs
  • Use the local disk storage as a commonly shared storage pool:
  • - 12 2.5” or 3.5” hot-plug SAS storage drives of PRIMERGY CX420 provided to both server nodes
  • - Optional access to external JBOD (e. g. dual ported Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS JX40) from both nodes

  • Save on investment costs for complex and often expensive storage network infrastructure like Fibre Channel based SANs – plus the necessary FC controller in the server node
Performance and Flexibility
  • Configurable 2U, half-wide server node with
  • - 2 CPUs out of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 family with 4, 6 or 8 cores
  • - Up to 256 GB main memory with 16 high speed (1,600 MHz) memory DIMMs
  • - 2 free PCIe 3.0 slots for high performance low profile I/O controllers (1x for 10 GbE, FCoE, 8 Gbps FC, 56 Gbps Infiniband, plus one additional for 10 GbE)
  • - One or two onboard 2.5” SATA boot disk drives (HDD or SSD)

  • Stay flexible to adapt to the exact requirements in terms of
  • - CPU performance and energy consumption: Up to 70% performance improvement over Xeon 56xx series, 60 % improvement in I/O bandwidth for heavy load I/O communication.
  • - Memory capacity and bandwidth
  • - External I/O connections
  • - The suitable drive technology, best supporting the application demands
