Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) has reinforced its high end server range. The vendor has added three Unix servers based on its Fujitsu Sparc64 microprocessor, as it prepares to assault the local market.

“Fujitsu Siemens Computers brings to the market these versatile servers to enable companies to optimise their existing IT infrastructure and start consolidation projects for enhanced performance levels,” says Karim Saba, sales director, international large enterprise, FSC.

“The fifth generation 1.3GHz clock Sparc64 processor raises the overall system performance by 60%. The Primepower family of servers is certainly going to take us closer to our objective of being a dominant player in the field of business critical computing, one of the two key core areas of FSC’s mission to lead the information age,” he adds.

FSC is introducing three Primepower server models to the region as part of this announcement: the 900, 1500 and 2500. The Primepower 900, the smallest of the models, is scalable up to 16 processors and ideally deployed as a lower cost alternative for server consolidation, e-commerce and large application processing.

The 1500 is scalable up to 32 processors and can be deployed in standalone or multi-server clusters for high performance, availability and scalability.

Primepower 2500 is a 64-way and 128-way high end machine that touts 99.999% availability. It is targeted at the server consolidation, data warehousing and ASP markets which require sophisticated dynamic partitioning combined with mainframe-class performance.

All three machines also pack FSC’s extended partitioning technology. Depending on the model, the minimum number of CPUs contained in a single partition is two or four, providing granular resource allocation. The number of partitions can go up to a maximum number of 15.

“The Middle East and Africa region is witnessing solid economic growth that is sure to fuel the demand for IT infrastructures that empower companies to move on to the fast track to keep pace with global trends of doing business. No enterprises can afford to stay behind in this field, as IT systems form the backbone of today’s businesses,” claims Saba.

“Products like the Primepower servers have been specifically created to cater to the exacting demands of modern businesses,” he adds.
