Cost-effective and energy efficient solution for high-performance computing and large scale virtualization
Bangalore, July 17, 2012 – Fujitsu today launches the new PRIMERGY CX400 S1 multi-node Cloud eXtension server. Announcing this a press statment said, this innovative technology requires only half the space of a standard rack server to provide enterprises with cost-effective, energy-efficient access to smart scale-out capabilities for deployments such as private cloud, high-performance computing (HPC) and large-scale virtualization.
Enterprise customers of all sizes are increasingly looking for improved energy efficiency, higher platform density and better management effectiveness when realizing their cloud computing, high performance computing, virtualization, hosting, or virtual-client computing strategies.
“The PRIMERGY CX400 is a great example of Fujitsu innovation and continuous drive to increase the power and flexibility of our cloud computing systems. The multi-node Cloud eXtension system enables our customers to increase the performance, productivity and flexibility of both Cloud and High Performance Computing solutions through smart scale-out at a lower cost,” commented Mehul Doshi, Country Manager, Servers, Fujitsu India.
As datacenters evolve, IT architects are placing greater emphasis on scale-out flexibility, as well as improved energy efficiency, higher platform density and more effective management. To meet these needs, Fujitsu introduces a new, compact version of its state-of-the-art Cloud eXtension architecture.
The PRIMERGY family consists of three interchangeable low-, medium- and high-end server nodes - the PRIMERGY CX210 S1, CX250 S1, and CX270 S1 models - into its new half-width tray design. To ensure interoperability, these remain fully compatible with industry standard rack infrastructure and applications.
As a result, the PRIMERGY CX400 provides smart scale-out capabilities and combines established front-to-back cooling and rear-side external connectivity to slot easily into existing racks. Its ‘4in2U’ design requires 50 percent less space, cuts hardware investment and improves management efficiency and system granularity while still matching the performance of standard rack-based servers. Reliability and uptime are guaranteed thanks to extensive hot-plug features, which keep the system up and running even during maintenance.
The PRIMERGY CX dual-socket server nodes feature processors from the latest high-performance Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 family, ensuring the delivery of high-memory bandwidth and IO-speed.
