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:
PRIMEFLEX for Egenera PAN is provided in three pre-defined configurations:
Configurations may be adapted, expanded or adjusted in order to meet individual requirements.
