ICT solutions provider Fujitsu Malaysia has launched the world's most efficient server, which sets new standards for energy efficiency, said the company.

Speaking on 4 June 2012, Fujitsu regional head of platform products Adrian Loh said the company's new PRIMERGY server generation is a modular, highly-scalable and customisable server platform, which allows Malaysian data centre managers to better manage their IT needs while reducing energy costs.

"Today, many data centres are challenged by limited power budget allocations and in setting more stringent environmental mandates," said Loh. "The gains in versatility, scalability and cost efficiency from using Fujitsu's new generation, highly-customisable server platform allows businesses to meet their current IT needs and extend later, if required."

"The introduction of Fujitsu's new generation PRIMERGY Server with improved energy efficiency will help organisations to run an additional two-thirds more workload on their current power budget without stressing their data centre's cooling capacity," he said. "This is very good news for businesses that are facing limitations on power supply or heat dissipation in their data centres."

"Our product innovations are the result of a clear strategy to deliver the greenest and best-performing servers in every class to meet customers' needs - ranging from small stand-alone tower servers to very large data centres," said Loh.

Recent benchmark results

Loh said that based on recent benchmark results from the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC), the Fujitsu PRIMERGY generation set a new standard for server energy efficiency.

He outlined some of the findings:

- A Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S7 rack was the first single-node server to break the 5,000 ssj_ops/watt milestone, with the SPECpower_ssj2008 benchmark¹
 
- New models provide a performance improvement of up to 73 percent as compared to the previous record-breaking PRIMERGY generation.

- Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX200 S7 delivered best-in-class energy efficiency levels.

Based on comparisons of the best performing single node and 1U rack servers, the full results were published on www.spec.org on 29 May 2012.

"In addition, the new PRIMERGY server models provide 100 percent additional memory capacity and space for an additional 33 percent internal storage in the same form factor as the previous generation, while ease of administration is also assured for PRIMERGY servers due to Fujitsu's ServerView Management software suite," said Loh.

"In Malaysia, the newly-launched PRIMERGY server generation is targeted at existing customers for infrastructure upgrades and new customers in industries including commercial, healthcare, education, retail, communications, public sector, and financial services," said Fujitsu Malaysia senior manager, platform products, infrastructure services and solutions, Edward Ling.

"We are expecting the new PRMERGY server generation to make a significant contribution to the planned growth of our platform product business in Malaysia, and we will be working closely with channel partners as we look to further strengthen these relationships by introducing benefits and exclusive partner experiences under the global SELECT Partner programme," said Ling.
