Fujitsu to ship blade-based eight-way server

Fujitsu is to start shipping an eight-way server created from four integrated dual-processor blade servers.

Fujitsu is to start shipping an eight-way server created from four integrated dual-processor blade servers.

The new server, expected to ship in either April or May, relies on 2.6GHz Opteron dual-core processors from AMD.

Designed for the x86 market, the new Fujitsu product will be up against similar high-end products from the likes of IBM, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and Dell.

The blade integration development builds on Fujitsu’s move last year to offer a four-processor Opteron server built from linking two Primergy BX630 blades.

The price of the new Fujitsu eight-processor option will start at £20,000.

Blade servers fit inside a single chassis that provides shared power and an easier connection to networking equipment.

IBM is the leader in the blade server market, with HP at number two, and Dell in third place.
