Fujitsu has today announces the global availability of PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 Eight-Socket Rack Server, that is a new performance class of industry-standard servers to drive x86 economical benefits into the mission-critical computing realm.
The Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server offers the financial sector, public sector, and a broadening range of industries with the high-levels of reliability for scale-up applications previously dominated by expensive and proprietary RISC/Unix systems.
Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server’s innovative ‘glue-less’ design combines with the service offerings and solutions of Fujitsu Dynamic Infrastructures, plus Intel Xeon 7500 processor series and the new Intel QuickPath Interconnect technology, to deliver mission-critical peace-of-mind at an affordable price.
With server virtualization now moving into the mainstream, not to mention the consolidation of resource-hungry or ‘fat’ virtual machines, demand is set to grow significantly for flexible and reliable scale-up platforms that deliver a quicker return on investment, such as the PRIMERGY RX900 S1.
The proliferation of business intelligence, data warehousing applications, plus other demanding high-performance back-end databases, makes reliable scale-up performance crucial for a wide range of business sectors.
Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server is capable of handling centralized mission-critical corporate workloads with peace-of-mind for extreme performance requirements, as the 8-socket rack server is fully capable of scaling up on demand inside a single 8 U chassis, without the need for change or re-arrangement of rack infrastructures.
The new Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server is powered by up to 64 processor cores, and features up to 2 terabytes of main memory, plus a highly-aggregated I/O bandwidth of more than 120 gigabytes.
The platform also provides unprecedented operational continuity as the high-availability functions of the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 eight-socket rack server perfectly combines with the new reliability, availability, and scalability functions of the Intel Xeon 7500 series processors.
Driving the computing performance and speed of connectivity of Fujitsu’s new eight-socket Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX900 S1 x86 rack server is an innovative ‘glue-less’ design, where no additional Hardware is necessary to run all eight CPUs, therefore providing the shortest route between processors, memory modules and I/O hubs.
Vendors can simply ‘glue together’ multiple dual-socket server blades, which leads to I/O bottlenecks.
“Two market trends are combining which will drive the success of the PRIMERGY RX900 S1. Server virtualization is moving into the mainstream, while customers are reducing operational costs by consolidating older dual- and quad-socket servers, and replacing UNIX servers in favor of industry-standard flexibility and price performance. The ‘glue-less’ design of the RX900 S1, and seamless scale-up of processor, memory and I/O capacities – within a single 8U server box for added investment protection – makes it the most compelling eight-core x86 server.” Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President Datacenter Systems Product Division at Fujitsu Technology Solutions
