Fujitsu Releases New Global Server GS21
GS21 1600 Model Group

Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has developed new mainframe sever models, the ultra-high performance GS21 1600 model group and the high-performance GS21 1400 model group, both of which employ a new Fujitsu processor that places four CPUs on a single chip(1). Sales of the new models began in Japan today.

With the new processor, the new models are able to achieve a maximum 30% increase in processing power and a maximum 20% reduction in power consumption compared to their predecessors. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have been completely eliminated from the paint used on the chassis, enhancing the environmental friendliness of the new models.

Fujitsu also released today an updated version of its Global System Software 21 internet extension (GSS21i), with improved internal control functions and service-oriented architecture (SOA) compatibility.

In today's challenging business environment, companies are reducing server deployments and operating costs by consolidating servers and storage into datacenters. They are also increasingly interested in intracorporate cloud computing and other IT infrastructure offerings that link multiple systems seamlessly and efficiently using SOA.

At the same time, companies are being judged based not only on the products or services they provide, but also on their levels of business continuity, stability, legal compliance, and environmental consciousness. Amid these trends, the importance of mainframe servers for mission-critical business applications and centralized data processing is being reaffirmed.

With that in mind, Fujitsu introduced the new GS21 models with improved processing performance and reliability, the ability to flexibly accommodate open systems and services, and superior environmental features. The new mainframe servers will allow Fujitsu to further assist its clients in growing their business and creating new value. Placing the highest priority on ensuring the continuity of clients' applications, data, and other assets, Fujitsu is committed to the ongoing hardware and software development, sales, and technical support of the GS21 series.

The models will be on display at Fujitsu Forum 2009, which will be held on May 14-15, 2009 at the Tokyo International Forum.
