Fujitsu Achieves Energy Efficiency World Record With the new PRIMERGY RX300 S7 Generation
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/12 --
The recently announced Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S7 server generation sets the new target to beat for single-node server efficiency, achieving a new world record and debuting as the first to break the prestigious SPECpower_ssj 2008 milestone of 5,000 overall ssj_ops/watt.(1) The result underlines Fujitsu leadership in the engineering of energy-efficiency PRIMERGY servers. The company already holds energy-efficiency records in their class with the PRIMERGY TX120 S3 and further mono-socket systems.
These results reflect the many innovations made by Fujitsu to increase energy efficiency as a clear corporate goal. For example, Fujitsu ServerView® Suite supports simplified and automated PRIMERGY energy management, with innovative features such as automatically switching off PCIe ports when not in use. In combination with 94 percent-efficient power supplies, and other intelligent system improvements, the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S7 delivers an energy efficiency result of 5032 overall ssj_ops/watt. According to Intel*, an improvement of up to 51 per cent is achieved compared to the previous HP ProLiant DL360* generation.(2)
Fujitsu PRIMERGY dual-socket servers set high standards for versatility, scalability and cost-efficiency
Customers choosing PRIMERGY are also assured of investment protection over the server lifecycle. The new PRIMERGY generation provides 100 percent additional memory capacity and space for an additional 33 percent internal storage. Ease of administration is assured for PRIMERGY servers thanks to the innovative Fujitsu ServerView Management Suite.
Prices, configurations and availability vary by region.
