Fujitsu sharpens blade server

On guard

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Fujitsu Computer Systems flashed its latest energy-efficient, better I/O performance blade server and chassis in the hope of cutting customers loose from market leaders HP and IBM.

The Primergy two-socket BX620 S4 server comes loaded with either Intel's dual or quad-core Xeon processors.

The chassis (BX600 S3) features a new midplane that operates as an interface between the server blades and system components.

It is compatible with previous generations of Intel-based and AMD Opteron-based BX600 blade servers.

Fujitsu also touted support for the systems' fibre channel connectors and said that I/O throughput performance rates were three times faster than its previous offerings.

It added that the new blade features 10 one gigabit ethernet ports per system, which allows room for up to 60 ports in each chassis.

Pricing for BX620 S4 blade servers starts at $1,948, while the BX600 S3 chassis starts at $7,176. ®
