Fujitsu Debuts New Generation of PRIMERGY Mono-Socket Servers
Servers Using Latest Intel® Xeon® Processors Deliver Performance and Value
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/10 -- Fujitsu
(http://solutions.us.fujitsu.com) announced today in North America a new
generation of mono-socket PRIMERGY<sup>®</sup> rack
and tower servers representing a leap in technical innovation, delivering
excellent client value and versatility, and unlocking advanced performance
capabilities at competitive prices. The next-generation PRIMERGY TX150 S7 tower
server and PRIMERGY RX100 S6 rack server are available worldwide immediately.
The new Fujitsu mono-socket server family features fully revised architecture
based on the latest Intel® processors and complements dual-socket Fujitsu
servers introduced in late 2009. This new generation of entry-level servers is
designed to take advantage of the Intel® Xeon® processor 3400 series, as
well as dual-core 32nm processors previously code-named "Clarkdale," officially
announced today. These include the Intel® Pentium® processor G6950, and
Intel® CoreTM i3-530 and 540 models.
- Both the PRIMERGY TX150 S7 server and the PRIMERGY RX100 S6 server are based
on industry standard architectures, and offer an easily expanded, multi-usage
server solution for clients looking to cost-effectively optimize IT
infrastructures and improve operational efficiency.
- Designed to provide exceptionally high levels of system modularity, the new
PRIMERGY rack and tower servers deliver a winning combination of performance,
versatility and reliability, making them ideal all-purpose servers for small
and mid-size businesses, as well as in non mission-critical infrastructures.
The servers further optimize energy consumption with a new generation of even
more efficient power supplies.

New York, Jan. 10-13, at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in booth 411.
Modularity Combined With Robust Performance
- In line with the Fujitsu focus on continuous improvements in all-around
performance across the PRIMERGY family, enhanced performance and increased energy
efficiency are hallmarks of the new PRIMERGY TX150 S7 server and PRIMERGY RX100
S6 server. The new models are updated with the new processors, second-generation
(Gen2) PCIe slots and SAS 2.0 interfaces. With their new architecture, the new
mono servers feature an exceptional level of expandability of up to 32 GB of
RAM. Both the rack and tower models represent a breakthrough in performance levels
as they are capable of supporting resource-intensive database processing, tasks
previously possible only with higher-end systems.
- The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 tower server is designed as a hard-working dual-core
and quad-core single-processor system for decentralized infrastructures. The
flexible server is an excellent foundation for a cost-saving configuration and
can also be used as a dependable database server. Underlining its versatility,
the PRIMERGY TX150 S7 server also has plenty of capacity for memory expansion
as it can punch above its weight in virtualized environments. Overall, the PRIMERGY
TX150 S7 server features unrivalled system expandability and availability, along
with enhanced scalability and reliability for a mono-processor system.
- The PRIMERGY RX100 S6 rack server is a mono-socket, rack-optimized server.
It delivers very high modularity, energy efficiency and great performance.
Optimized to perform as a true multi-purpose server, it is a good match for SME
infrastructures and non mission-critical environments such as web server farms,
terminal servers and infrastructure servers. The modular hard drive concept,
supporting either two 3.5-inch drives or four 2.5-inch drives, provides a new
level of technical options and enables system-ready support for a wide range
of applications and IT scenarios. Modular RAID configurations support SATA, SAS
and Solid State Drives (SSD) hard drives.
