Fujitsu Computer Systems has launched a range of severs that include management control techniques to simplify server management in complex and virtualised environments.
The new range comprises five Primergy dual-socket servers: the RX200 S3 and RX300 S3 rack servers, the TX200 S3 and TX300 S3 tower servers, and the BX620 S3 blade server. This third generation of Primergy servers features the latest processors from Intel, the Xeon 5000 and 5100 Sequence, which Fujitsu says delivers increased performance and power efficiency.
Primergy servers combine these processors with upgraded disc and memory subsystems to provide the performance demanded by datacentre customers. In addition the company is confident that the built-in virtualisation technology in the processors will provide datacentre administrators with new options for consolidating their infrastructures to address power, cooling and real estate cost challenges.
The servers also include a new integrated Remote Management Controller for enhanced remote management that simplifies server management in complex and virtualised environments.
"With integrated management and increased power and flexibility, these new Primergy servers will play a key role in [our strategy] to optimise the IT infrastructure," says Richard McCormack, senior vice-president of marketing at Fujitsu Computer Systems.
"Primergy blade server chassis also have the ability to mix both current and future-generation Intel Xeon servers in a single environment. This enables datacentres to implement an optimal consolidation-based growth strategy without compromising their ability to leverage new technologies as they are introduced."
