London, September 02, 2021
Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers are now certified and available for Windows Server 2022 – the latest version of one of the most popular server operating systems (OS) and the heartbeat of data centres around the world.
The latest innovations in the new Windows Server include advanced multi-layer security and more secure remote working. In combination with Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY servers, customers can benefit from even more robust levels of security as well as heightened flexibility, efficiency, and productivity – and have a flexible platform to modernise applications with containers or implementing other IT migration plans with confidence.
The world’s most popular server operating system
Windows Server keeps the digital world running as the server OS platform of choice for critical services and applications. Its position in the data centre market means that this latest release of Microsoft’s server OS is a significant milestone in the innovation calendar for data center managers and IT strategists.
Addresses growing cybersecurity threats
With the ever-growing number of cybersecurity threats and the rapidly escalating impact of incidents, security is a top priority for IT leaders. FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY and Windows Server 2022 include new security features such as Secured-Core Server, Secure Connectivity and Platform Firmware Resilience (PFR). Secured-Core Server combines powerful threat protection and provides multi-layered security across hardware, firmware, and the operating system. Secured-Connectivity adds an additional layer of security in transit for advanced protection. With PFR, the system can protect the platform firmware, detect damage, and restore it to a known good state.
More secure remote working
Being able to work from anywhere is an important factor for many businesses today. Above all, the security of company data and applications is a top priority. With Windows Server Remote Desktop Services, IT administrators can easily enable users to access applications and desktops from anywhere. The platform offers more secure access to virtualised applications, remote desktop access and simplified management. With the integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC) and the Infrastructure Manager Software (ISM) from Fujitsu, IT leaders can also access their data centre from anywhere at any time to get an integrated view and centralised control.
Christian Leutner, VP & Head of Product Sales Europe at Fujitsu, says: “Data-driven transformation continues to advance, presenting clients with new challenges. More data has to be processed, more apps and services must be available and function properly. With Windows Server 2022 and Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, users benefit from a perfect match with even greater security and better system performance. The combination of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, which are highly-respected by customers for their proven reliability, and the important new features in Windows Server 2022 give customers a secure, future-proof environment for today's and tomorrow's workloads and business needs.”
Fujitsu PRIMERGY enhancements
The Fujitsu x86 line-up1 includes two new PRIMERGY RX servers for enterprise data centres, a brand-new GPU-accelerated PRIMERGY GX series server, and two powerful compute nodes with the enhanced PRIMERGY CX400 chassis (2U), ideal for virtualisation and high-performance computing where space is limited. The new PRIMERGY generation is equipped with 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and high-speed RAM. This is complemented by system-specific technology enhancements such as Intel® Optane™ 200 Series persistent memory, advanced graphics and new EDSFF storage media that enable breakthrough workload acceleration. Workloads benefit from updated backend infrastructure for collaboration and messaging and virtualisation, databases, and graphics-intensive workloads.
Platform capabilities that support business-critical workloads and improves developer velocity
Vijay Kumar, director of product marketing at Microsoft commented: “Customers use Windows Server to run large-scale and distributed applications. Consequently, Microsoft has focused on bringing platform capabilities and tools that improve support for business-critical workloads. Windows Server 2022 adds several platform improvements such as advanced multi-layer security, hybrid capabilities Microsoft with Azure and Windows containers.”
Pricing and availability
The first Windows Server 2022-certified PRIMERGY servers are available for order from the beginning of October. Pricing depends on specification and region.
Note for editors
1FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY systems deliver workload-optimised x86 industry-standard servers for any workload and business demand. Since there is no single server solution to meet all these needs, Fujitsu offers a broad server portfolio consisting of expandable tower servers, versatile rack-mount servers, density-optimised multi-node servers, and GPU servers purpose-built for the demands of AI. While all these systems are designed to handle multiple workloads, each server is optimised for specific use cases. FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY systems are available to order either directly from Fujitsu or via SELECT channel partners.
