Server nodes in the PRIMERGY CX600 M1 use a common, shared infrastructure, with central cooling fans and hot-plug power supplies integrated into the chassis. This reduces energy consumption while also allowing individual nodes to be serviced without affecting others. Furthermore, the full redundancy of shared components ensures uniform higher system availability.
Customers can also choose Fujitsu’s innovative direct-to-chip hot water (45°C / 113°F) based Cool-Central® Liquid Cooling, which removes heat directly from the server’s CPU and voltage regulator module. This alone can halve datacentre cooling costs and allows for higher density, enabling implementation of even the most ambitious HPC projects without the need to increase power and cooling supplies in existing datacentres.
1) According to Intel, 1 Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7250 (3.046 TFLOPS) will offer 2.3 times the DP Peak Performance (Theoretical Peak) of 2 Intel® Xeon® E5-2697 v4 CPUs (1.324 TFLOPS). With 4 PRIMERGY CX1640 M1 server nodes per height unit, this leads to 9.2x the performance of a standard 1U dual-socket rack server. In addition, the price/performance ratio per processor is 2.7 times better for 1 Intel® Xeon Phi™ 7250 CPU in comparison to 2 Intel® Xeon® E5-2697 v4 CPUs. Find out more.
