News facts

  • New PRIMERGY rack and blade servers meet specific capacity requirements in data centers facing caps on energy and space
  • Independent benchmarks underline energy efficiency of the new FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2530 M1 rack model
  • New PRIMERGY BX2580 M1 server blade, optimized for handling extensive virtualization and consolidation projects as well as other demanding workloads
Sunnyvale, CA, February 09, 2015

Fujitsu today announces the expansion of its PRIMERGY® dual-socket server line up, with the PRIMERGY RX2530 M1 rack model and PRIMERGY BX2580 M1 server blade specifically designed to enable business growth in datacenters that are limited in their overall expansion by energy and space restrictions. 

The new Fujitsu rack and blade servers are designed to reduce cost, improve efficiency and accelerate workloads to deliver optimum, scalable levels of productivity while still meeting specific maximum limits in terms of use of rack space, plus caps on power and cooling. 

The new dual-socket FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2530 M1 rack server delivers maximum performance from a slender 1U form factor – making it the perfect choice for virtualization and scale-out deployments. Its capabilities are underlined by a new SPECpower_ssj® 2008 energy efficiency benchmark record in the class of 1U rack servers1 at launch, achieving a new industry-best level of efficiency with a score of 9811 overall ssj_ops/watt (operations per Watt of power). This achievement validates the continuing ability of Fujitsu to deliver servers designed to get the most from every Watt of energy. 

“We see our customers reaching limits in terms of power consumption and physical space in their established datacenter environments,” said Uwe Neumeier, Vice President Global Server Business at Fujitsu Technology Solutions. “At the same time, most businesses are demanding ever more scalability, availability and performance. Fujitsu is addressing this challenge with very energy efficient servers like the new 1U dual-socket PRIMERGY RX2530 rack model, which has just set a new class record for power consumption.” 

Fujitsu is also expanding its already-extensive portfolio of blade systems with the new PRIMERGY BX2580 M1 server blade, optimized for handling virtualization and other demanding workloads. Both new servers join the PRIMERGY line-up, which was fully refreshed in September 2014 with dual-socket systems featuring a comprehensive line-up of improvements based on field feedback from customers. 

The new servers are characterized by the PRIMERGY brand’s proven quality and reliability, and include new features such as the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family plus super-fast DDR4 memory technology to help boost application performance. Fujitsu also helps reduce the overhead of IT labor to administer and manage server farms through innovative additions such as Embedded Lifecycle Management, which is part of the widely deployed FUJITSU Software ServerView® Suite. 

Both new PRIMERGY models are optimized for integration into existing network landscapes, and can dynamically scale I/O bandwidth to meet application needs, thanks to the use of a unique, modular, scalable and field interchangeable LOM architecture (LAN On Mainboard), known as DynamicLoM, and Universal Converged Network Adapters.
