Fujitsu lanserar nya x86 PRIMEQUEST-servrar – med nya hastighetsrekord

Stockholm, June 10, 2016

Fujitsu har lanserat den nya generationen servrar i PRIMEQUEST-familjen, en line-up som fortsätter traditionen att tänja på gränserna för prestanda och tillförlitlighet. PRIMEQUEST-servrarna har försets med Intels senaste Xeon E7-processorer och har uppnått oöverträffade resultat i ett flertal oberoende benchmarktester. Serverfamiljen är designad för verksamhetskritiska operationer, där högsta möjliga nivå av stabilitet och datorkraft är nödvändiga.

Fujitsu Introduces New Mission Critical x86 PRIMEQUEST Servers

News facts: 

  • Fujitsu’s most-reliable x86 servers are perfectly suited for highly-demanding, mission-critical deployments where unplanned downtime is not an option
Munich – 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 line-up has 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 than ever 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. What’s more is that 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.”

By choosing 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.
