Fujitsu announces three new PRIMERGY servers

0 comments

Fujitsu has announced the launch of its latest one-socket PRIMERGY servers, which provide market-leading performance and long-term value while minimising management time and costs.

Ideal for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), branch offices and data centres, and powered by Intel’s newly-available Xeon processor E3-1200 series, the new PRIMERGY RX100 S7, TX140 S1 and TX120 S3 enable organisations to do more with less.
All three versatile servers are powerful, efficient and easy to manage, reducing the need for in-house IT resources and consequently dramatically shortening payback periods. Their expandable design ensures they deliver long term value, also protecting IT investment as they can be scaled up to meet changing business needs:
* The modular PRIMERGY RX100 S7 fulfils a range of different scenarios, including print and Web, file or virtualisation server, while its modular power supply can be used in most future PRIMERGY server models and so simplifies inventory.
* The PRIMERGY TX140 S1 is an expandable all-round server for SMEs and branch offices, exhibiting great energy-efficient performance, a high storage capacity, plus a flexible rackable design. Designed to minimise environmental impact, its halogen-free printed circuit board makes disposal easier.
* The PRIMERGY TX120 S3 meets the demands of organisations looking for high performance in small environments. It offers up to Intel Xeon processor E3 performance benefits, and a choice 2.5” or 3.5” base units, with high availability features in an ultra-compact form-factor.
Richard Sutherland, portfolio manager, Dynamic Infrastructures at Fujitsu, says, “Organisations need to optimise productivity to compete successfully today. Our new PRIMERGY servers provide efficiency by combining flexibility, performance and ease of management with cost effectiveness. Whatever the business challenge, we ensure that IT delivers long term value and underpins ongoing success.”
Market-leading performance is confirmed by independent SPEC benchmarks that demonstrate the efficiency, low total cost of ownership (TCO) and high performance of the PRIMERGY TX140 S1 in typical operations carried out by small businesses and branch offices.
In recent tests, it achieved energy efficiency benchmarks 42% above the previous SPEC record, as well as best in class software processing performance.
“Fujitsu’s next generation PRIMERGY servers have taken advantage of the capabilities of the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 product family to deliver the enhanced responsiveness, energy efficiency and high productivity that SME customers demand,” says Boyd Davis, VP of Intel’s Data Centre Group Marketing.
Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY RX100 S7 and TX140 S1 servers will be available globally from June 2011. The TX120 S3 will be available to order from June in all markets. In the Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa and India region, this TX 120 S3 is available only direct from Fujitsu on a project basis.
