Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST Smashes through In-Memory Database Limits, Truly Enables Real-Time Decision-Making for ERP

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

London, November 05, 2013
  • Fujitsu announces technology evaluation program for next-generation x86 servers capable of holding databases up to 12TB in memory
  • Unprecedented performance and in-memory capabilities make even large-scale Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) databases available for real-time decision-making

At Fujitsu Forum, Fujitsu today announces a technology evaluation program for PRIMEQUEST high end servers which extends capacities of in-memory computing up to 12TB. This means Fujitsu is the first vendor to enable real-time decision-making for large-scale SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) application databases, running them in-memory on the SAP HANA platform. 

Providing unprecedented levels of performance, Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST mission-critical RAS (reliability, availability and serviceability) servers are capable of delivering an industry-first breakthrough for in-memory capacity, with technology evaluation systems now able to scale up to four times current limits. 

Companies evaluating PRIMEQUEST will gain a competitive advantage, thanks to the increase in business velocity from running mission-critical ERP systems in-memory. With databases held in memory instead of on disk, benefits include powerful analytics, real-time decision-making and alternative scenario modeling. 

As real-time decision-making intensifies competitive pressure, so Fujitsu is enabling technology evaluators to break through current capacity and performance limitations. PRIMEQUEST achieves this thanks to hugely-increased memory capacities of up to 12TB and a bank of more than 100 processor cores.

Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President, Product Development Group, International Business, Fujitsu
“In a world where organisations are recognising that decisions made in real time mean the difference between winning and losing, Fujitsu is ahead of the market. Today we are announcing a technology evaluation program which offers organisations an opportunity to gain significant competitive advantage, by safely running SAP ERP applications in real-time on SAP HANA.”
