Enterprise networking company Fujitsu announced the launch of a new server targeting data center companies and cloud service providers.
Fujitsu is offering the PRIMERGY CX1430 M1 server in Japan from today and other global markets in phases. Fujitsu said it is aiming to sell 10,000 units of the latest server units by fiscal 2020.
Japan-based Fujitsu said this server optimizes total cost of ownership (TCO) by reducing energy expenses and the amount of space required for equipment, lowering operating costs. The new model is also suited for applications such as running a web server or providing edge computing for IoT systems.
The new server from Fujitsu features Intel CPUs from the Intel Xeon D Processors, which offer low power consumption in a compact size, enabling the server to deliver a reduction in power consumption of 20 percent compared to previous products.
This Fujitsu server optimizes TCO by limiting energy costs and rack installation expenses when installed in a data center, reducing operating costs by up to about 20 million yen compared with previous configurations.
Fujitsu deployed the new server model for a part of the platform underlying Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, its public cloud. Through this deployment, Fujitsu was able to optimize its TCO, particularly data center operating costs, confirming that the new model was able to reduce costs by about 60 percent.
The cut in operating costs by about 20 million yen compared with previous configurations is based on an estimate by Fujitsu, assuming 1,000 server nodes used for three years, comparing the PRIMERGY CX1430 M1 with the PRIMERGY RX1330 M3 1U rack server.
The estimate compares billing costs by rack equipment space for 19-inch racks and energy costs calculated based on actual measured values of server energy consumption. This is not intended as a guarantee of cost reduction effects in a customer environment.
