Fujitsu Primergy RX900 S2 Server

Fujitsu-PRIMERGY-RX900-S2-GIS

Eight Processor Powerhouse

The PRIMERGY® RX900 server is an ideal application and database server for organizations that need a robust platform that can scale with their requirements. Its extensive scalability and powerful performance make it an excellent server to consolidate virtualized environments, which reduces system footprints in the data center and their related management, heat, and power costs. The PRIMERGY RX900 server’s next-generation architecture, based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 series, makes this consolidation possible. This processor enables the PRIMERGY RX900 to do the work of a huge number of older systems, delivering almost 4x performance gain over previous 4-socket PRIMERGY platforms. Support for up to 2 TB of RAM and sixteen PCI Express slots assure that as workloads expand the system’s capacity can expand as well. The PRIMERGY RX900 is a powerful server platform you can count on to deliver reliable, scalable performance.

Family Overview

Environment

Together, we can keep our planet green and clean

For more than a decade, Fujitsu has made a significant, sustainable investment in enterprise-wide initiatives, from reducing our carbon footprint, to eliminating lead and other harmful wastes from our supply chain and products, to broad recycling and reuse programs and reforestation projects. We continue to invest in innovation and programs that are good for both the environment and our business.

Fujitsu has become the first company in Silicon Valley to install a hydrogen power fuel cell. This revolutionary technology will generate 50% of the power needed to cool the servers in our data centers and computer labs at our Sunnyvale, CA campus, and will pay for itself in 3.5 years. It meets the most stringent air emissions standards set by the California Air Resources Board and produces 35% less CO2 per megawatt-hour than the average fossil fuel-based power plant.

More Information about the hydrogen power fuel cell

In addition, while observing all environmental regulations in our business operations, we are actively pursuing environmental protection activities on our own initiative. Through our individual and collective actions, we will continuously strive to safeguard a rich natural environment for future generations.

Server Reliability

A heritage of performance and availability

Fujitsu is known for proven, end-to-end enterprise reliability built on the foundation of its enterprise servers. These products reflect our vast mainframe experience and our deep commitment to reliability. Our industry-standard servers run on Windows®, Linux or Solaris®, and cover your needs from small- and medium-sized businesses to corporate data centers.

  • Sophisticated Cool-safe® technology and multiple redundant, hot-plug components improve performance and increase system availability.
  • To reduce downtime, multiple processor-level and system-level mechanisms and redundancies are used for error detection and recovery. All Fujitsu servers are carefully architected so you don’t need to depend on recovery mechanisms alone.
  • Fujitsu high-end servers host multiple, electrically isolated partitions so they can be serviced separately without taking the entire system offline.
  • Integrated redundant management processors continuously monitor hardware in real time.
  • The Fujitsu Enterprise Computer Heritage shows the developments that led to the rich variety of successful technologies which ensure top line reliability and performance in today’s business environments.

Server Security

Architected for Performance and Protection

Fujitsu industry-standard servers cover your needs from small- and medium-sized businesses to corporate data centers. Using our vast mainframe experience, we carefully design and build our servers to provide multiple levels of protection from intrusion.

  • In Fujitsu high-end servers, an integrated management processor continuously monitors internal hardware to maintain uptime. To increase security, the processor connects to internal components via redundant private LANs, and to a remote management console via a secure (SSL), browser-based dedicated connection.
  • All communications between the management processors and the management browser can be protected with 128-bit encryption. Access to the management processors can also be restricted via IP filtering at four account levels — administrator, operator, user, and service person–and all accesses can be logged.
  • Agent software installed on each partition monitors hardware configurations and partition status.
  • Independent, electrically isolated partitions allow security settings to be individually set. If unused web server functions are not required, HTTP ports can be disabled, closing potential security holes.

PRIMERGY Servers – White Papers

Performance Comparison of Fujitsu PRIMERGY and PRIMEPOWER Servers

The Fujitsu PRIMERGY® RX600 S4 server was chosen as a potential solution since it can accommodate up to 24 processor cores and 128 GB of memory, making its resources comparable to those of a medium-to-large partition on a PRIMEPOWER® 2500 server.

Comparing Mainframe and Windows Server Transactions per kWh

This paper demonstrates that Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers can run between 3 and 24 times as many transactions per kilowatt hour (kWh) as pre-z10 mainframes running the same business transactions. The transaction range depends on whether the mainframe CICS transactions have been Web-enabled, and which technique of Web enablement has been employed. Cost figures are also used to show that moving transactions of this type from the mainframe to Windows Server®–based PRIMERGY servers can save between 19 and 80 carbon credits per year.

Innovative Technologies Realizing Compact PRIMERGY TX120 Server

The need for internal control in enterprises reflects a growing market demand in recent years for data integrity. In line with this trend, enterprises that previously used PCs for data management are now introducing server systems for centralized data processing. For such introduction, customers tend to rely on three main points in selecting a server: size, low noise, and low power consumption. At the same time, innovations are being made in space-saving technology and low power consumption technology. Given these market trends and technological innovations, Fujitsu has introduced the PRIMERGY TX120. —[Akinao Tanikawa, Tadashi Mantani, Noriaki Kobayashi] ©2008 Fujitsu Limited
