Fujitsu Technology Solutions has unveiled new entry-level Primepower servers, which it claims offer mainframe-class technologies and reliability.
The Solaris-compatible, Sparc-compliant Primepower 250 and 450 server models are targeted at high availability e-business and transaction processing applications, and are configured with up to two and four 1.1GHz processors, respectively.
They offer 1MB of on-chip second-level cache, fast buses, and larger disk capacity.
Fujitsu said the new servers feature self-healing and self-monitoring architecture, incorporating a feature called hardware instruction retry, enabling any failed instruction at hardware level to be retried immediately.
This eliminates time-consuming flushing and rebuilding of the software buffers and corrects 98 per cent of noise-generated errors, the company claimed.
Richard McCormack, vice president of product marketing at Fujitsu Technology Solutions, said: "These servers bring the best technology from mainframe computing to aggressively meet the needs of customers who are currently experiencing limitations in power and performance at the entry point."
