PRIMERGY RX600 S2 and PRIMERGY TX600 S2 Servers Offer Innovative Memory Features for Industry-leading Reliability
"Fujitsu continues its relentless pursuit of reliable, flexible solutions that enable large enterprises to expand server capacity quickly," said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of product and solutions marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. "With 4-way performance and a comprehensive approach to ensuring memory and data reliability, the RX600 S2 and the TX600 S2 servers break new ground in ensuring our customers have access to the exact computing solution they need."
Both systems offer advanced memory capabilities including patrol scrubbing with ECC and Chipkill. The hot-plug function of the memory board allows on-the-fly memory swapping and upgrades. A hot spare DIMM on one of the two banks of one memory board can be used as hot spare memory that automatically replaces a defective bank. Memory mirroring can be used to provide higher system reliability by splitting the memory into two identical images, or memory RAID can be used to enable data reconstruction if a device should fail.
The PRIMERGY RX600 S2 4U rack server is ideal for either 32-bit or 64-bit operation and also includes four PCI Express slots for expandability and five hard drive hot plug bays. "Hot-plug everything" means fast and easy upgrades and repairs. Both servers are available now. The PRIMERGY RX600 S2 server is priced starting at $7,500. The PRIMERGY TX600 S2 server offers the same basic system architecture but with 10 hard drive hot plug bays. For maximum flexibility, the TX600 S2 comes as a tower server and can be easily converted to a 6U rack server with an optional kit. The PRIMERGY TX600 S2 server is priced starting at $7,300.
PRIMERGY servers are a key product line in the Fujitsu TRIOLE(TM) strategy for optimized IT. Aiming to meet the needs for open-standard IT infrastructure systems and improved business continuity and efficiency, the TRIOLE strategy is designed to help corporations and public institutions expand the scope of their activities, quickly set up new operations, achieve system stability and reduce total cost of ownership.
The TRIOLE strategy is based on real life customer experiences and three core technological areas in which Fujitsu has leading-edge expertise: integration, virtualization and automation. Virtualization separates applications and data from dedicated systems; automation refers to the autonomic self-healing and adaptation of IT infrastructure to meet changing business needs; and integration is the fast, low cost and low risk implementation of those technologies across the full IT infrastructure spectrum, including server, storage, network and middleware elements. Fujitsu has applied these core concepts to develop pre-verified solution templates that will serve as functional building blocks to speed the construction of highly reliable open-system installations.
