A new system design also defies the laws of physics to pack unmatched amounts of processing power into a 3U form factor – up to 112 cores per system. This smaller footprint enables organizations to downsize on-premises data centers. By providing fast, high-capacity and cost-effective memory for large data sets with up to 48 DIMM modules, including 24 in Intel Optane persistent memory, applications run faster.
A further boost for enterprise workload patterns such as very large virtual machines – used as one of the foundation stones of any digital environment – is also part of the new system, since Fujitsu has doubled the Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) connectivity of the new-generation servers with six Intel UPI.
Comprehensive connectivity and expansion options
The server’s new flexible drive cage design supports up to 24 2.5” SAS/SATA/NVME storage drives. Built-in expandability for future business requirements and extra input/output bandwidth is ensured thanks to a total of 11 PCIe 3.0 expansion slots and a dynamic onboard LAN controller (DynamicLoM) with OCP 3.0 interfaces. The PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 also supports two double-width, full-length GPGPU modules to support deep learning.
Cost effective, easy server administration and remote lifecycle management are provided via the latest Fujitsu integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC S5), while the Fujitsu Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM) ensures centralized control via a single interface for entire data center infrastructures including servers, storage, networking, power and cooling.
Christian Leutner, VP & Head of Product Sales, Fujitsu Europe says: “With Intel’s latest generation processors and memory inside, the PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 provides the outstanding performance and AI acceleration that organizations need in order to handle increasingly complex business requirements and exponential data growth. Machine learning and deep learning workloads are increasingly important for image classification, speech recognition, language modeling and industrial applications, but they are often computationally intensive and often run for hours or days. With these state-of-the-art servers, organizations can now significantly improve the running time of these and other data-heavy workloads.”
“The new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor delivers the scale, memory capacity and built-in AI acceleration to meet the biggest mission-critical application and data analytics challenges,” said Lisa Spelman, Corporate Vice President and GM of the Xeon and Memory Group at Intel. “Enterprises equipped with these powerful processors and Intel Optane persistent memory in the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 server will be poised to maximize their potential in the data-centric era.”
Pricing and availability
Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 servers equipped with the new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series are available to order either directly from Fujitsu or via SELECT channel partners from October 2020. Pricing varies according to region and system configuration.
Notes to editors
In addition to the new PRIMERGY RX4770, Fujitsu today introduces a new Intel Select Solution. These are workload-optimized configurations for today’s data center, cloud and network communication workloads that are designed to shorten time to deployment. The latest Intel Select Solutions for Nutanix HCI is based on FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY powered by Intel Xeon processors. More information can be found here.
