Fujitsu PRIMERGY 8-Socket Server Drives x86 Computing Power to Achieve Industry-Standard Flexibility and Price Performance

'Glue-less' Design Ensures Extreme Reliability, Availability, and Scalability - Plus Flexibility and Faster ROI

Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited

Hong Kong, August 05, 2010

Fujitsu today announced the availability of PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server, a new performance class of industry-standard servers in Hong Kong to drive the economical benefits of x86 industry standards to the next frontiers.

The PRIMERGY RX900 S1offers the financial sector, public sector, and a broadening range of industries with the high-levels of reliability for scale-up applications previously dominated by expensive and proprietary RISC/Unix systems. Its innovative ‘glue-less’ design combines with the service offerings and solutions of Fujitsu Dynamic Infrastructures, plus Intel Xeon 7500 processor series and the new Intel QuickPath Interconnect technology, to deliver greater peace of mind at an affordable price.

"We are delighted to introduce the PRIMERGY RX900 S1 to enterprises in Hong Kong at the time when the demand for back-end services, scale-up enterprise workloads and high performance database processing is growing significantly. The PRIMERGY RX900 S1 extends far beyond the four-socket x86 server class and offers the greatest benefit. To ensure that our customers get the most from our hardware solutions, we also provide them with service packages that are tailor-made to their needs. They can rely on Fujitsu to give them the best IT support throughout the whole lifecycle of the solutions," said James Pang, General Manager, Sales Department of Information System & Services Division, Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited.

With server virtualization now moving into the mainstream, not to mention the consolidation of resource-hungry or 'fat' virtual machines, demand is set to grow significantly for flexible and reliable scale-up platforms that deliver a quicker return on investment, such as the PRIMERGY RX900 S1. The proliferation of business intelligence, data warehousing applications, plus other demanding high-performance back-end databases, makes reliable scale-up performance crucial for a wide range of business sectors.

Centralized corporate workloads can be deployed on the RX900 S1 with peace-of-mind for extreme performance requirements, as the rack server scales up on demand inside a single 8U chassis, and without the need for change or re-arrangement of rack infrastructures. Processing power is assured by up to 64 processor cores, up to 2 terabytes of main memory, plus a highly-aggregated I/O bandwidth of more than 120 gigabytes. The platform also provides unprecedented operational continuity as the high-availability functions of the RX900 S1 perfectly combines with the new reliability-, availability-, and scalability functions of the Intel Xeon 7500 series processors.

Driving the computing performance and speed of connectivity of Fujitsu’s new eight-socket rack server is an innovative 'glue-less' design, where no additional hardware is necessary to run all eight CPUs, therefore, providing the shortest route between processors, memory modules and I/O hubs. More often, vendors simply 'glue together' multiple dual-socket or four-socket servers , which leads to I/O bottlenecks.

"Two market trends are combining which will drive the success of the PRIMERGY RX900 S1. Server virtualization is moving into the mainstream, while customers are reducing operational costs by consolidating older dual- and quad-socket servers, and replacing UNIX servers in favor of industry-standard flexibility and price performance. The 'glue-less' design of the RX900 S1, and seamless scale-up of processor, memory and I/O capacities - within a single 8U server box for added investment protection – makes it the most compelling eight-core x86 server," said Jens-Per Seick, Senior Vice President, x86 Server Product Unit at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.
