Japan : Fujitsu Launches New Models in GS21 Series Featuring New Processors [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Fujitsu today announced the availability in Japan of new mainframe models, consisting of the super-scale FUJITSU Server GS21 2600 model group and the mid-, large-scale FUJITSU Server GS21 2400 model group, all equipped with newly developed processors. The company also announced the availability of FUJITSU Software GSS21sx, a new software that supports these models.
The new models use system-on-chip technology to increase processing performance by as much as 40% over their predecessors, while slashing power consumption by up to 50% and reducing required floor space by approximately 70%. Furthermore, the new software makes it easier to utilize mission-critical data from smart devices and various server types.
The year 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the company's first mainframe. Since then, numerous customers have deployed Fujitsu mainframes, and the company has continued optimizing processing performance, functionality, and specifications to actively reflect customer needs. Fujitsu will continue to help its customers grow their business and create value by enhancing and delivering hardware, software, and support in its GS21 Series that reflects a distinctly Japan-originated commitment to quality.
Mainframes continue to play a central role in social infrastructure systems and mission-critical enterprise systems that need to run reliably 24 × 7. Moreover, to make the best use of crucial data on mainframes, there is a growing need to modernize systems and transform work styles. At the same time, one issue facing mainframe systems is the ongoing need to reduce power consumption and facilities costs.
Fujitsu developed the new model groups in the GS21 Series and accompanying software to address these needs through improved processing performance, enhancements in smart device connectivity, and lower total cost of ownership.
The new models in the GS21 Series will be exhibited at Fujitsu Forum 2014, running May 15-16 at the Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo. The new models use a system-on-chip design with the latest CMOS technology to boost transaction-processing performance up to 40% over previous models, while also increasing reliability. Each chipset hosts up to 8 cores, equipped with a 256 KB primary cache, as well as a secondary cache of up to 24 MB, an I/O processor, a memory controller, and a system controller.
When configuring large-scale virtual machines (VM) with around 20,000 virtual I/O devices as a development environment, previous models were limited to configurations of three VM per cluster(3). However, new models offer both hardware and software enhancements that enable a dramatically larger number of virtual I/O configurations of over 10 VM. This allows concurrent development, revision and testing for different applications regardless of scale.
