At Cebit this year Fujitsu is also showing a new high-availability server, the Primergy CX420 S1, which it says can help companies keep services online without the IT expertise that usually requires.
The CX420 S1 is a dual-node server cluster containing two of its CX272 S1 servers side by side. Should one fail, then the system can use Microsoft Windows Server 2012's failover feature to start the other one, minimizing downtime -- although not eliminating it, as service will be interrupted while the second server starts up.
The new server goes on sale in Central Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India this month, either direct from Fujitsu or through distributors. Pricing depends on configuration, the company said, but it did not provide an example.
