Fujitsu Delivers Compelling Disaster Recovery Capabilities with PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN Integrated System

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

News facts: 

  • New holistic approach to entire data centre landscapes ensures resources are always best deployed across heterogeneous pools of server, storage, networking and hypervisors
  • Easier than ever to consolidate management of hardware systems for both physical and virtual workloads
London, May 13, 2015

Fujitsu today brings a compelling value proposition to market for enterprises tackling the headache of meeting ever-growing user demands for the availability of computing resources. PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is designed to deliver the maximum value and utilisation from data centre resources and in doing so, ensure continually optimised services, despite continuous and unplanned variations in user requirements.

FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN combines servers, storage, network connectivity as well as infrastructure management software in a reference architecture. It delivers consolidated management of heterogeneous hardware systems, across different form factors, diverse operating systems and hypervisor technologies.

Consequently, PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN creates both previously unmatched levels of resource utilisation and unrivalled high availability and disaster recovery capabilities.

PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is a powerful and virtually unbreakable High Availability (HA) and Disaster Recovery (DR) solution, thanks to its single, unified shared pool of resources across entire landscapes of server, storage, network and hypervisor resources – regardless of system vendor or operating system.

Fujitsu considers PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN as an ideal infrastructure that can be used to run highly available, business-critical services and to manage varying workloads running on a combined physical and virtual data centre infrastructure.

PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is a more flexible data centre infrastructure

For any enterprise looking for a more flexible data centre infrastructure, PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is a particularly compelling value proposition, thanks to partitioning and multi-tenancy features, enabling the creation of secure resource pools of shared servers.

Uwe Neumeier, Vice President, Global Server Business at Fujitsu, says: “PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is targeting customers searching for a more flexible infrastructure that allows them to run continuously accessible applications or services. One scenario example is dividing resources between two data centres, locations or fire-cells. The new PRIMEFLEX system accommodates application and workload-specific resource requirements, such as the use of ‘bare metal’ servers to satisfy extreme data throughput and other performance needs as well as to meet licensing, support or regulatory requirements.”

PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is offered with a choice of PRIMERGY rack, scale-out and blade servers. Customers can use existing storage systems or purchase Fujitsu ETERNUS storage. Fujitsu also offers a full range of maintenance, support and professional services to help customers with planning, onsite installation, implementation and operator training.

Fujitsu is continuing to expand its PRIMEFLEX line-up of Integrated Systems, which is made up of more than 20 offerings, including both reference architectures and ready-to-run systems. PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is a reference architecture, with a choice of small, medium and large reference configurations that adapt, expand or adjust to meet individual requirements.

The following Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers are certified as part of the PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN solution:

  • Rack servers: PRIMERGY RX200 S8, RX300 S8, RX2530 M1, RX2540 M1
