Fujitsu Siemens waxes up mini mainframe

BS2000 servers sparc up

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) has launched two new business servers in its B2000 range.

The SX100-D is aimed at entry-level mainframe users while the SX160 is intended for medium performance apps.

Both servers are based on sparc64 processor technology, which is already used in the firm's high-end Unix servers.

FSC said the servers run on the OSD/XC operating system and that its functions correspond to the current BS2000/OSD version 7.0, which have been ported to sparc64 architecture.

The BS2000 series supports service-oriented architecture (SOA), and FSC said both servers boast better security options and power management.

The SX100 ships with 12,20 or 30 RPF (relative performance factor) mono processors and a main memory configuration of 16GB.

The SX160 can be configured with up to six processor systems and comes with 42, 75 or 105 RPF and a main memory configuration of up to 64GB for BS2000/OSD.

FSC said that the SX160 multiprocessor models increased performance by up to 25 per cent compared to its previous SX150 model.
