Businesses Gain Competitive Advantage by Choosing the System- and Price-Performance of PRIMERGY
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/11 -- Fujitsu today announces that its PRIMERGY<sup>®</sup> RX200 S6 rack server holds pole position in VMware's new VMmark® V2.0 industry benchmark, which is now extended to measure servers on both performance and scalability for applications running in virtualized environments in a multi-host virtual environment. In a separate benchmark, PRIMERGY RX rack servers have retained all three top slots in TPC-E price-performance tests for more than two months, making Fujitsu the first vendor to sustain triple top results in two and a half years.
Such strong benchmark results provide independent validation that Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX series rack servers deliver industry-leading performance in the business-critical areas of databases, virtualization and enterprise resource planning. Customers looking for investment protection and faster payback can rely on best-in-class performance results that validate the advantages of choosing Fujitsu servers.
A series of independent benchmark results ensure that the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX range stands out in a commodity market:
Says Richard McCormack, SVP, Enterprise Systems at Fujitsu America: "Leading scores for PRIMERGY RX rack servers underline our focus on continual performance improvement. Our goal is to push the boundaries of performance innovation, as demonstrated by the results that confirm our focus on designing rack servers to meet the most-pressing business needs: reliability, performance, manageability and energy efficiency, supported by comprehensive Fujitsu services."
