Improves price/performance ratio by 6x while slashing power consumption by 1/3
Fujitsu announced that five models of the PRIMEQUEST 1000 series, the latest in its lineup of mission-critical x86 servers, will be available worldwide starting today.
PRIMEQUEST 1000 series servers are equipped with the latest 8-core Intel Xeon processor 7500 series, maintaining the same standards of reliability and availability as previous series, while at the same time improving the series’ price/performance ratio by roughly 6x. In addition, by decreasing the physical size of the server—a reduction of rack space by 1/3 and weight by 1/5—Fujitsu has succeeded in cutting the series’ maximum power consumption by approximately 1/3. The PRIMEQUEST 1000 series is being offered as a "Fujitsu Super Green" product, distinguishing it as a leading environmentally friendly product based on the Fujitsu Group’s green assessment guidelines.
Equipped with an Intel processor and Linux and Microsoft Windows Server operating systems, PRIMEQUEST, which combines Fujitsu’s proprietary technologies for high reliability and availability, is the perfect open-system server for use in upgrading mission-critical business systems, large-scale database systems, or as an ERP solution platform. Furthermore, because of its compatibility with leading virtualization software, PRIMEQUEST exhibits strength as a trusted enterprise cloud computing platform, as well as in server consolidation and integration, which are effective in reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of ICT systems.
"Intel welcomes Fujitsu’s next generation PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST platforms built on the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series," said Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Data Center Group. "Fujitsu’s high-end enterprise market reputation and expertise, coupled with the scalable performance and advanced reliability capabilities of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series, will help allow IT managers to run their most demanding, scale-up workloads."
The PRIMEQUEST 1000 series will be exhibited at Fujitsu Forum 2010, to be held on May 13-14 at the Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo.
