Addressing the megatrends with PRIMERGY RX4770 M2
A hyperconnected world is driving a new industrial revolution. However, for many data centers, IT infrastructure and operations are reaching a breaking point. Designed for business-critical back-end services, the quad-socket PRIMERGY RX4770 M2 is equipped with the latest of the Intel Xeon Processor E7 v3 Family available with up to 72 cores, plus up to 6TB super-fast DDR4 main memory. The PRIMERGY RX4770 M2 delivers state-of-the-art management capabilities with the new integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC S4), offering a variety of user-friendly functions to help ensure a faster and more cost-effective infrastructure management, no matter where the server is located. This quad-socket x86 server offers breakthrough performance, rock-solid reliability, and compelling consolidation and manageability efficiencies.
Hans-Dieter Wysuwa adds: “Fujitsu offers one of the widest ranges of data center and integrated systems, and the FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M2 is the flagship of the PRIMERGY server family. It achieves a new level of compute performance to deliver more efficient business results. It handles complex, data-intensive workloads such as in-memory databases and real-time business analytics with greater ease even than the previous high-end generation.”
The features of the PRIMERGY RX4770 M2 make it an exceptional platform for running demanding and data-intensive databases, applications, and business intelligence (BI) workloads. In addition, it substantially simplifies carrying out infrastructure-related tasks such as server virtualization at a price point that also makes it attractive for consolidation projects. This allows companies to boost their data center while reducing operational expenses by up to 48 percent (3) as well as a 2:1 consolidation ratio compared to a quad-socket system with typical working period (4).
