Business benefits

Fujitsu’s new concept of a modular chassis design for its PRIMERGY server line-up creates a highly customizable server platform that allows customers to configure systems freely to meet their current IT needs, and extend later if required. By supporting General-Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) cards and faster data throughput, the versatile new PRIMERGY servers are suitable for almost any business application or datacenter scenario. Customers choosing PRIMERGY are also assured of investment protection over the server lifecycle. The new models provide 100 percent additional memory capacity and space for an additional 33 percent hard disks. After-sale server expansion kits are available should server configuration needs change.

 

Simple administration with Fujitsu ServerView Virtual I/O Manager

Fujitsu’s innovative ServerView Virtual I/O Manager ensures an ease of administration and also provides network-agnostic virtualization in dynamic datacenter scenarios. On-the-fly roaming, adding and recovering virtual server profiles is now supported, and the time and effort required to redeploy images is reduced from hours to minutes.

 

The third generation of Fujitsu’s ServerView Virtual I/O Manager is available for all new PRIMERGY dual socket servers. Simplified power management features combined with 94 percent efficient modular power supply units further enable businesses to reduce server energy costs by up to 73% in comparison to the previous generation.

 

Performance improvements

Overall performance improvements for new PRIMERGY dual socket server models of up to 70 per cent are achieved with the help of the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family. In the field of high performance computing, system performance climbs by 120 per cent, using Intel’s new Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX).1
