Fujitsu Siemens Computers, the leading international IT company, has extended its blade server family with a new high performance system: the Intel-based PRIMERGY BX600. The new server ideally meets the requirements of enterprise
data center, Internet and application service providers.
The extensive connection options featured in PRIMERGY BX600 servers allow them to be used as mid-tier application servers. The easy-to-administer servers feature high packing density, fail safety features and redundant
components. The latest-generation Intel® Xeon™ processor helps deliver improved output, while ensuring future-proof operation, making the blade servers highly flexible, dynamically scalable, service-friendly, reliable
"The new PRIMERGY BX600 blade servers are designed primarily for mid-tier application areas, and are thus suitable as a platform for virtually all data center applications. They are ideal both as high-performance application servers or as small to mid-sized database servers due to their large RAM configuration, many and varied communication options with Gigabit Ethernet for LAN connections, 2-Gigabit Fibre Channel for connecting storage systems, and SCSI interfaces for backup devices," said Colin Britto, Sales Manager, Large Enterprises, Gulf Region, Fujitsu Siemens Computers.
In addition to classic mid-tier applications like Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes, target scenarios focus on corporate applications including FlexFrameTM for mySAPTM Business Suite, traditional SAP scenarios, Siebel, Baan, I2, or similar. Because the required databases, such as Oracle 9iRAC or (especially) the new Oracle 10g version, increasingly support the scale-out approach, the PRIMERGY BX600 now offers the appropriate and highly scalable platform. All other components of the PRIMERGY BX600, such as its integrated Ethernet switches, are designed for high performance and throughput.
The PRIMERGY BX300, the smaller and more compact sibling in the Fujitsu Siemens Computers blade server family, is used primarily in front-end operations as a highly scalable web or terminal server or as an infrastructure component. (menareport.com)
