Fujitsu-Siemens has announced the arrival of its Primergy range of server modules. The company will show them to the public for the first time at Gitex 2001. The models, called L100, L200 and P200 are designed for mission critical infrastructures and are very compact taking up between one and three server racks.

Also new to the market is the F200 server as well as the S60, an external fibre channel hard disk subsystem. Dieter Herzog, vice president, Intel servers at Fujitsu-Siemens, said: “The increasing dynamism of business processes calls for IT infrastructures that are able to adapt flexibly to new environments. Different server formats are are required to permit optimal scalability and availability depending on the particular application area. Our three new Primergy rack models fulfill this very need.”

The L100 is designed to cover dedicated solutions such as firewalls, gateways and applications. It will run both Linux and Windows 2000 and supports 24 hour operation. Disk mirroring is supported by IDE hard disk technology with on-board RAID controllers.
The L200 can support up to 92 processors making it ideal for terminal and Web server farms. It can have up to three hard disks of 72 GB and DDE RAID controllers.
The P200 can have up to six hard disks and six PCI slots giving excellent scalability making it suitable for a wide range of business functions.

The F200 is specialised to provide service in sites with no IT staff and operates in a secure stand-alone fashion. The S60 can accomadate up to 14 hard disks and up to four server attachments in SAN solutions. The company says that it can be configured with no points of weakness thanks to redundancy measures.
