Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) has introduced a number of servers that will likely be used in the datacentre environment....
The PRIMERGY dual-socket S3 generation servers include the RX200 S3 and RX300 S3 rack servers, the TX200 S3 tower server as well as the BX620 S3 blade server. PRIMERGY models are based on the new Intel Bensley platform and are equipped with the new Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5000 sequence processors. FSC says that the servers stand for improved performance and workload in combination with lower power consumption. One key feature is the built-in virtualisation capability of the processor, which is supposed to maximise significantly server utilisation rates and to allow more applications to run on one machine.
FSC is confident that customers will not only benefit from the heightened performance and utilisation rate, but will also gain the advantage of easier server management, which it says comes with the latest PRIMERGY generation’s integrated Remote Management Controller.
The PRIMERGY S3 generation also supports a separate, independent second bus, which is included in the chipset (up to 1.333 GHz) for each processor. This is designed to improve system efficiency and throughput with enhanced bus speed that FSC says effectively doubles bus bandwidth, eliminating input/output bottlenecks.
FSC claims that the PRIMERGY BX620 S3 blade server has managed two brand-new world records and boasts the top two MMB3 benchmark performances.
