Fujitsu Siemens makes tiny, quiet, green tower server

For the Al Gore in your remote office

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Fujitsu Siemens says it has launched the world's smallest, quietest and most cost efficient tower server.

The Tower Server Primergy TX120 is aimed at small businesses and branch offices that do not have a separate server room.

According to FS, running on its highest configuration, the TX120 consumes 40 per cent less energy than conventional tower servers. At full load, the maximum active power is 163 watts.

The company claims the server has better energy efficiency than a lightbulb, although it never really explains the claim. How are they measuring efficiency? Against what kind of lightbulb?

Lightbulbs aside, this puppy is small. The housing measures just 99mm x 340mm x 399mm (WxHxD).

Fujitsu said the TX120 is also the quietist server in its class, with 50 per cent less noise emissions than standard tower servers. The TX120 produces 28 decibels (dB) while idling and 31 dB in operation. It's a useful trait for running a server in a small office.

The system can be outfitted with a 1.866GHz Intel Xeon dual-core processor with up to 4MB cache and a 1066 MHz FSB. A second option housing an Intel Celeron processor will be available in September.

The box has four DIMM slots, for up to 8GB of ECC memory. RAID 0, 1 and 1E protection are available in the 4-port SAS controller with up to two hot-plug SAS hard disks. There's also a 1Gb/s ethernet controller onboard and a Integrated Remote Management Controller with the iRMC Advanced Pack option.

The Primergy TX120 is available immedietly, with prices starting at around $2,000. ®
