Fujitsu Now Shipping First PRIMERGY Servers With Windows Server 2012

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, September 05, 2012

Fujitsu today ships the first PRIMERGY servers with the newly released Windows Server 2012 operating system, providing immediate access to agile and flexible optimised infrastructures for diverse computing requirements. Fujitsu was also the first vendor worldwide to achieve certification for Windows Server 2012 pre-launch, and is first to offer a Cluster-in-a-box solution.

News facts:

  • Compelling combination of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers and the new Windows Server 2012 operating system provides immediate access to optimised infrastructures
  • Tightest-ever hardware and software interoperability delivers new solutions such as Fujitsu Cluster-in-a-box based on PRIMERGY BX400, FlexFrame on Windows for SAP® solutions, and Fujitsu’s solutions for Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track
  • Fujitsu infrastructure solutions enable scale-out flexibility and growth, through system extensibility and integrated systems management

By choosing Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, customers gain immediate access to the latest server hardware and software technology: fully-tested, pre-configured systems in Microsoft-validated configurations built to Fujitsu’s exacting standards. Thanks to close cooperation on development between Fujitsu and Microsoft, the new Fujitsu PRIMERGY rack, blade and tower servers and Fujitsu ETERNUS DX disk storage systems running Windows Server 2012 are already proven to be stable and reliable.

Windows Server 2012, designed by Microsoft to 'cloud optimise your IT', is the perfect complement to Fujitsu’s market position as the infrastructure enabler, providing lock-in-free cloud benefits such as business agility, to enterprises at all stages of cloud adoption.

Optimised Fujitsu solutions for Windows Server 2012

Fujitsu today also announces optimised infrastructures designed for Microsoft workloads, making it easier for IT managers and CIOs to select infrastructure solutions scaled to their needs. Configurations pre-tested for individual system requirements feature factory-configured hardware and the Windows Server 2012 operating system, helping to minimise implementation workload for system deployment.

The first three of a growing number of solutions support growth and flexibility through system extensibility and integrated systems management. The new Fujitsu Cluster-in-a-box, FlexFrame on Windows for SAP® solutions, and Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions will be offered directly by Fujitsu and via channel partners. Availability varies according to country.

Fujitsu is also the only vendor immediately providing Windows Server 2012-based easy scalability and investment protection in one box: the Cluster-in-a-box running on Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers. A flexible and modular solution tailor-made for midmarket organisations with demanding IT requirements, it offers affordable high availability to protect business-critical data and services.

FlexFrame on Windows for SAP® solutions, a proven concept to deliver savings of up to 60 percent in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of infrastructure running SAP solutions, will be upgraded to Windows Server 2012. It provides an ideal foundation for cloud computing environments, thanks to system flexibility, efficiency and reliability.

Fujitsu’s Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions, which enable the quick implementation of private cloud environments, are also updated for Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and System Center 2012 SP1 editions. Private Cloud Fast Track solutions provide organisations with all the servers, storage, networking equipment and management software needed to build a private cloud.
