Fujitsu Server BS2000 SE500
The new Fujitsu BS2000 SE500 servers are positioned in the medium to upper performance range and can be expanded up to 3 processors. On account of their processor performance, configurability and scalability SE500 systems are classified below the SE700 system.
The highly available infrastructure provides all the necessary system components that are key to the economic operation of the overall application. In this way, all applications and application parts can use the optimal system platform without losing control of central system administration.
Bearing in mind that applications depend on many different IT systems, the unique architecture concept of the SE500 series offers the optimal platform for every usage scenario – both for classic mainframe and standard applications on /390 and x86 technology. At the same time, the modular construction of the SE500 infrastructure creates completely new capabilities for companies in the data center.
- /390 based server units for BS2000
- x86-based server units for BS2000, Linux or Windows guest systems
- x86-based application units for operation under Linux, Windows or VMware
- Shared tape or disk peripherals
- Fast internal server infrastructure to connect components to each other and to the customer SAN
An important objective in developing the SE servers was a standardized management concept which offers a very high degree of integration and ensures very economic IT operations. This includes cross-system administration with a modern browser-based interface as a single point of administration, common system monitoring of all components, a shared service procedure and all the options of consolidation by virtualization. Thus, the new SE500 servers enable very stable system operation, which not only includes the mainframe platforms that were already proven as very fail-safe, but also comprises application units as well as the infrastructure and peripherals used by the SE server.
For SE500B Fujitsu recommends the use of the BS2000 operating system package OS DX V1.0. Read more about the BS2000 operating system packages.
