Fujitsu Server BS2000 SE730/SE730B

FUJITSU Server BS2000 SE730 400x400The servers of the latest SE generation are a valued platform in the high-end performance range for the management of the largest data volumes. The very powerful and scalable SE730/SE730B Servers offer extremely high availability and serve as an ideal platform for mission-critical applications.

Due to the unique integration capability of the SE730/SE730B, all applications or application parts can use the optimal system platform without giving up the central administration of the systems.

For application systems whose components run on different IT platforms, the unique architecture concept of the SE Series provides the optimal platform for both classic mainframe applications and standard x86 applications. At the same time, the modular design of the SE730/SE730B infrastructure opens up completely new application possibilities in the data center for companies.

  • /390 based Server Units for BS2000
  • x86-based Application Units for operation under Linux, Windows or VMware ESXi
  • Shared tape or disk peripherals
  • Fast server-internal infrastructure for connecting the SE Units to each other and to the data networks in the data center.

A key objective in the development of the SE Servers was a uniform management concept that offers maximum integration and ensures very economical IT operation. This includes cross-system administration with a modern browser-based interface as a single point of administration, common system monitoring of all components, a common service procedure and all options for consolidation through virtualization.

A further development stage is the support of management clusters for the central operation and administration of several SE Servers and of live migration clusters for the uninterrupted relocation of running BS2000 guest systems from one SE Server to another.

The new SE730/SE730B Servers thus permit particularly stable system operation, which not only includes the mainframe platforms already known as particularly fail-safe, but also Application Units and the infrastructure and peripherals used by the SE Server.

For SE730/SE730B Fujitsu recommends the use of the BS2000 operating system package OS DX V1.0. Read more about the BS2000 operating system packages.
