Fujitsu Innovates Server Portfolio for the Computing Demands of a Digital World
- Flagship Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY CX400 M4 multi-node server combines the density of blade-like servers with the simplicity of rack-based systems
- New generation of dual- and quad-socket Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY and octo-socket Fujitsu Server PRIMEQUEST Business model helps organizations build foundations for digital transformation
- Exceptional workload-optimized performance increases fueled by new Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform
Representing some of the biggest platform advancements of the decade, the latest server innovations are spearheaded by the multi-node Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY CX400 M4, which offers workload-specific computing power in a compact and modular form factor. The PRIMERGY CX400 M4 combines the density and efficiency of blade-like servers with the simplicity and cost efficiency of rack-based systems, and presents a versatile and future-oriented platform for building integrated systems and software-defined technologies. It is ideal for modular and density-optimized server infrastructures in virtual environments, for high-performance computing, cloud and hyper-converged network and storage environments.
Featuring the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, the entire new generation of Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST Business model server systems¹
are designed for exceptional workload-specific performance and hardware-enhanced security. Built for trusted data service delivery, the new models represent significant leaps in I/O, memory, storage and network technologies. On top of their powerful performance and efficiency, the next-generation servers are optimized with a rich feature set to suit the broadest range of application scenarios across a range of industries, including core and business-critical digital business processes and databases, hyper-converged systems, cloud and virtual environments, and data-rich applications such as real-time big data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
Olivier Delachapelle, Head of Enterprise Business, Category Management Data Center at Fujitsu EMEIA, says: “Digital technology is now at the heart of most businesses, as organizations leverage an individually tailored set of connected technologies such as cloud, mobile, the Internet of Things, and data analytics. This brings new computing and performance demands that hugely impact existing data center infrastructures. As businesses need to gather, process and store more data, they need to act faster and with more flexibility and agility. Servers are a crucial part of this digital transformation. This is why we have developed our new PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST system line-ups to offer a comprehensive portfolio of powerful server systems for all usage scenarios, company sizes and workloads – systems that are easily able to handle whatever performance demands you make of them. Choosing these new-generation systems is a guarantee that you are ready for the digital future.”
Jennifer Huffstetler, Senior Director, Data Center Product Management at Intel, says: “The combination of Intel and Fujitsu technology results in compelling data center products that enable our shared customers to pursue digital transformation. The Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver increased levels of performance, scalability, agility and security to further accelerate this digital transformation.”
New-generation systems feature multiple technology advances
Technical features include enhanced DDR4 memory modules and up to 6 TB capacity in quad socket PRIMERGY server2
, flexible configuration options to support mix-and-match of storage drive bays with enormous capacity and the most advanced graphics processing units (GPUs) to further accelerate the most demanding high-performance computing, hyperscale, and enterprise datacenter workloads. Connectivity is provided through onboard LAN for Ethernet, as well as DynamicLoM for extended requirements.
The PRIMEQUEST server pushes the performance envelope of SAP HANA up to 12TB of the in-memory database.
Embedded management features let IT departments deploy, monitor and support the servers remotely, while the new Fujitsu ServerView® Infrastructure Software Manager (ISM)3
allows for the consolidated, efficient operation and management of converged infrastructures and facility equipment that runs in datacenters and server rooms.
