Fujitsu Unveils Next Generation Intel-Based Mono-Processor Servers
PRIMERGY TX150 S2 Tower Server and PRIMERGY RX100 S2 Rack Server Ideal for Branch Offices, Data Centers and Mid-Tier Market
Fujitsu Computer Systems today boosted the appeal of its entry-level mono-processor servers with the new S2 generation of its PRIMERGY TX150 tower server and RX100 rack server.
The PRIMERGY TX150 S2 tower server has been enhanced to operate even more economically while offering better performance and reliability. Its sheer range of functionality and high performance is as convincing as the integration of quality future-oriented technology. The PRIMERGY RX100 S2 rack server, meanwhile, symbolizes ultra-compact economy with its improved utility and expanded data center fail safety. Both servers come with Server Management Suite for simple installation and configuration, as well as a choice of Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 or Celeron(R) processors.
PRIMERGY TX150 S2 Tower Server
The PRIMERGY TX150 S2 tower server is a multipurpose mono-processor server that offers excellent performance and scalability and sets new class standards for expansion options. It can be configured either as a cost-optimized variation with new SATA technology (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment), or as a SCSI version with this system's renowned availability features. RAID 0, 1, 10 functionality for outstanding data security is included even in the entry-level unit.

PRIMERGY RX100 S2 Rack Server
The PRIMERGY RX100 S2 rack server is an energy saving mono-processor rack server measuring 1U and incorporating SATA hard drive technology with onboard RAID 0 and 1 functionality. The combination of its compact size and optimized server management results in a lean IT infrastructure that is simple to administer. The functionality and price-performance make the PRIMERGY RX100 S2 rack server ideal for data center solutions and server farm concepts running 19-inch rack environments.
The PRIMERGY RX100 S2 rack server is the first PRIMERGY mono-rack server that can be operated either with two fixed "easy change" or two hot-plug SATA hard drives with a capacity of up to 320 GB. The new SATA RAID technology allows configurations with either mirror disks or "striped disks," providing the same RAID/hot-plug functionality as comparable SCSI models at an attractive price.

PRIMERGY servers are a key product line in the Fujitsu TRIOLE(TM) strategy for optimized IT. Aiming to meet the needs for open-standard IT infrastructure systems and improved business continuity and efficiency, the TRIOLE strategy is designed to help corporations and public institutions expand the scope of their activities, quickly set up new operations, achieve system stability and reduce total cost of ownership.
The PRIMERGY TX150 S2 tower server and PRIMERGY RX100 S2 rack server are shipping now. Prices for Intel Celeron-based models start at $1,400 (USD).
The TRIOLE strategy is based on real life customer experiences and three core technological areas in which Fujitsu has leading-edge expertise: integration, virtualization and automation. Virtualization separates applications and data from dedicated systems; automation refers to the autonomic self-healing and adaptation of IT infrastructure to meet changing business needs; and integration is the fast, low cost and low risk implementation of those technologies across the full IT infrastructure spectrum, including server, storage, network and middleware elements. Fujitsu has applied these core concepts to develop pre-verified solution templates that will serve as functional building blocks to speed the construction of highly reliable open-system installations.
