Fujitsu Delivers PRIMERGY 8-Socket Blade Servers

Fujitsu Computer Systems announced the PRIMERGY BX630 8-socket blade server powered by dual-core AMD Opteron processors. Fujitsu claims to be the first major vendor to deliver a standard-architecture 8-socket, dual-core blade server system, offering increased density and scalability with lower power and space requirements.

The 8-socket PRIMERGY blade server enables all components of an enterprise infrastructure from network edge devices to backend databases to be housed in a single blade server chassis. Individual blades can then be upgraded to more powerful servers as needed.

AMD Opteron-based PRIMERGY BX630 8-socket blade servers can be installed in the current PRIMERGY BX600 chassis and mixed with existing Intel Xeon based PRIMERGY BX620 S2 blade servers and PRIMERGY BX630 2-socket blade servers, enabling customers to select the best technology for specific businesses and applications.

The AMD Opteron architecture features AMD's HyperTransport interconnect that makes it possible to link two PRIMERGY BX630 2-socket blades into a single 4-socket blade, and then link two of these 4-socket blade into a single PRIMERGY BX630 8-socket blade. Packed with dual-core AMD Opteron processors, the system becomes a 16-core powerhouse, giving customers the flexibility to move high-end applications and database processing to the PRIMERGY BX600 blade platform.

The PRIMERGY BX630 8-socket server will be available during the second quarter of 2006. The PRIMERGY BX630 blade pricing starts below $2250 in a 2-socket configuration. An 8-socket PRIMERGY BX630 blade is priced below $36,000.
