Fujitsu High-End PRIMEPOWER Server Achieves Unprecedented Result in SAP® Standard Application Sales and Distribution Benchmark

128-Processor PRIMEPOWER 2500 Server Gains Highest Rating Ever in Two-Tier SAP Standard Application SD Benchmark Running Oracle9i Database Release 2

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, May 15, 2003

Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has achieved an unprecedented score of 13,000 SAP SD Benchmark users in the two-tier SAP Standard Application Sales and Distribution (SD) Benchmark running Oracle9iTM Database Release 2 on a system comprising Fujitsu's 128-processor SolarisTM Operating Environment-compatible SPARC®-based PRIMEPOWERTM 2500 server and ETERNUS3000 storage system. Breaking through the 10,000-user barrier for the first time, the achievement firmly places PRIMEPOWER and Oracle9i Database technology in the No. 1 position worldwide on this key performance benchmark.

In addition, demonstrating PRIMEPOWER's excellent linear scalability as processors are added, Fujitsu achieved a score of 7,550 SAP SD Benchmark users running Oracle9i Database Release 2 with a 64-processor PRIMEPOWER 2500 server model and ETERNUS3000 storage system.

These achievements follow five other recent high-rated benchmark results for Fujitsu's midrange PRIMEPOWER servers, including a No.1 position in the two-tier SAP Standard Application mySAPTM Utilities-Customer Care and Service (ISU/CCS) Benchmark made public in March.*

Fujitsu is committed to achieving the world's highest system performance, stability and reliability, and the company has taken its enterprise-class PRIMEPOWER platform scalability to levels never before possible in the UNIX® server marketplace. Importantly, these achievements have been made in conjunction with SAP AG, the world's leading provider of business software solutions, and Oracle, the world's largest enterprise software company.

"The combination of PRIMEPOWER and Oracle9i Database Release 2 continues to meet with unprecedented success in real-world high-performance benchmark testing," said Richard Sarwal, Vice President, Data Server Applied Technologies, Oracle Corporation.

Many users of SAP solutions are interested in upgrading their current systems to embrace the powerful enhanced capabilities of mySAP Business Suite solutions. PRIMEPOWER servers, with their superior performance and scalability - as demonstrated across a range of SAP benchmarks - have been shown to be a leading platform for such demanding and experienced mySAP Business Suite customers.

"Our PRIMEPOWER servers are now clearly the standard to beat in enterprise computing platforms," commented Tatsuo Tomita, Group Senior Vice President, Enterprise Systems Group, Fujitsu Limited. "PRIMEPOWER's unmatched ability to run large and tuned Oracle9i Databases in commercial environments and important commercial benchmarks provides assurance against system and peak transaction overloads and enables customers to extend their competitive advantage."

PRIMEPOWER 2500 server models can scale from 1 to 128 SPARC64TM V processors and can be further upgraded by the implementation of even higher clock speed processors, as they are introduced as part of the Fujitsu processor roadmap. In addition, Fujitsu's implementation of extended partitioning (XPAR) and dynamic relocation brings the flexibility of software partitioning to hardware implementation ensuring maximum system availability. All of these features are important to users of SAP solutions who must maintain their systems for many years as part of their core corporate business tasks.
