Fujitsu has introduced two Itanium 2-based servers in an attempt to increase its enterprise user base.

The Primequest 480 and 440 servers are a result of an alliance with Intel.They can hold up to 32 processors and 16 processors, respectively.

Fujitsu said the chipset on the Primequest servers offer high availability in a single system by using System Mirror and Flexible I/O (FIO). System Mirror allows memory modules and crossbar interconnects to operate in duplex mode and isolate errors without causing a system halt. FIO allows on-demand redirection of I/O resources to specific processing resources.

Fujitsu has been selling Itanium 2-based servers since 2003, but so far Itanium 2 platforms have only represented a small slice of the overall server market.

Fujitsu's latest models are aimed at users of older mainframes and Unix-based servers.
