Enhanced Fujitsu M10 Servers Featuring New SPARC64 X+ Processors

Enhanced Fujitsu M10 Servers Featuring New SPARC64 X+ Processors

April 8, 2014

SPARC64 X+ processor

Fujitsu and Oracle have announced worldwide availability of the newly enhanced Fujitsu M10 server. The latest Fujitsu M10-1, M10-4 and M10-4S servers are now equipped with the new SPARC64 X+ processor, which features 16 cores and runs at speeds of up to 3.7 GHz, providing users with up to 30% more processing power than the previous SPARC64 X processor. In comparison with IBM Power 795, the new M10 server delivers users approximately 2.7 times the performance.

SPECint_rate2006 Benchmark Results

These benchmark results indicate the latest Fujitsu M10 server’s high speed performance. Designed to easily integrate with previous Fujitsu M10 servers, it protects current infrastructure investments, and provides flexibility and scalability to match business growth. In fast moving, ever-changing business environments, Fujitsu M10 is the ideal platform to accelerate innovation.

Fujitsu M10 Server's High Speed Performance: 15 World Records

Leveraging Fujitsu M10's high speed interconnect technology, Fujitsu can provide customers with world-class 25 Gbps high-speed serial transfer when connecting processors to one another.

Together, the high speed processor and the high-speed interconnect, maximizes the system performance of Fujitsu M10. As a result, Fujitsu M10 has achieved world number one performance in 15 major benchmark tests (as of April 8, 2014).

These benchmark results depict how Fujitsu M10 delivers performance across various areas of business operations, including processor computing performance, memory access performance, Java and ERP applications. From entry-level systems right through to the high-end systems, Fujitsu demonstrates overwhelming performance in a wide range of configurations, proving its ability to adjust to varying customers requirements.

Fujitsu M10 Flexibly Scales to Respond Quickly to Environmental Changes

The ever changing business environment is surrounded by diverse customer needs and requires information systems to respond rapidly and flexibly.

With businesses subjected to constant market fluctuation, it is essential IT infrastructure has fast and flexible features. The high speed Fujitsu M10 server delivers business innovation by driving rapid and responsive management decisions.

CPU Core Activation and Building Block Architecture

Fujitsu M10 is supported by CPU core activation, which makes it possible to add additional CPUs on a core basis, without stopping the system. Moreover, its Building Block design enables overwhelming scalability for the addition of servers up to a maximum of 64 CPUs, 1024 cores. Leveraging the combination of these features ensures system expansion can be aligned to the growth of the business.

Dynamic Reconfiguration

Dynamic Reconfiguration (DR) supports flexible use of system resources. Hardware resources such as, CPU, memory, and I/O, can be both added and removed to/from the physical partition while operating the system. This provides the capability to add resources in a timely manner (hot expansion) when business expansion or active hardware maintenance is required.

Fujitsu M10 Server Protects Current Resource Investments

The latest M10-4S server supports a mix of SPARC64 X+ and SPARC64 X processors in the same system, thereby making sure current Fujitsu M10 investments can be fully utilized. Fujitsu M10 servers supports both Oracle Solaris11 and Oracle Solaris 10, as well as Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers for flexibility to run previous Oracle Solaris generations*, thereby improving performance and increasing cost-savings without expensive application modification. Additionally, built-in virtualization features such as physical partitions, Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones, have helped many Fujitsu M10 customers consolidate and shrink the size and power requirements of their datacenters. The enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers offer excellent computing capability and investment protection to pave the way for larger server consolidation and modernization that can help customers further optimize total cost of ownership

*Previous Oracle Solaris generations specifically refer to Oracle Solaris 8 and Oracle Solaris 9.

Fujitsu M10 Server Driving Success for the Future

The era of big data has arrived. Social networks and sensors collect and analyze a variety of information to take advantage of knowledge that will contribute to business growth in the future.

Fujitsu believes one of the keys to strengthening and to continuing to improve business competitiveness, is the integration of mission-critical business data with high performance information systems that have the ability to handle big data processing in real time.

With the superior computing power of the world record holding Fujitsu M10, customers benefit from greater business insight and advanced decision making capabilities, that can help accelerate growth now and in the future.
