Fujitsu adds Sparc64 iron to high-end server fire

Antony Savvas

Fujitsu is hedging its high-end server bets by launching five new models based on Sparc64 processors.

The company recently launched a range of high-end servers based on Intel’s Itanium chips. The Itanium-based servers are designed to support Linux and Windows, and were rolled out in a bid to ensure Fujitsu did not lose sales through its traditional commitment to Unix systems.

The five new PrimePower machines are available with ultra-fast Sparc64 2.08GHz processors, faster than the 1.35GHz or 1.89GHz chips previously available.

Sparc64 processors are designed to support Sun Microsystems’ Solaris version of Unix. Sun also sells Fujitsu’s servers.
