FUJITSU has announced the availability of Fujitsu M10 servers in Malaysia, saying that the new servers promise high reliability, availability and serviceability for both applications and data processing.
The M10s are built with 16-core SPARC64 X processors, the company said in a statement, and are based on its supercomputer technology.
“In recent years, the need for high-speed processing of large amounts of data has increased dramatically,” said to Lim Hun Leong, vice president of Infrastructure Services & Solutions at Fujitsu Asia.
“Many enterprises want to upgrade their IT infrastructure … to support faster, real-time decision making for their business operations,” he added.
Fujitsu Malaysia country president Michael Warren (pic) said he expected local demand for the new servers would mainly be to power up mission-critical computing workloads, especially in banking and Internet services.
“In Malaysia, we are targeting the financial services, telecommunication and public sectors, especially large scale enterprises, data centre and outsourcing services providers, for the new servers business,” he said.
“The Fujitsu M10 is an ideal platform for running single-threaded applications, such as database, business analytics/ business intelligence applications, data mining, and batch processing, to help [organisations] fulfill ever-changing IT workload requirements and business demands,” he added.
The Fujitsu M10 servers feature technologies such as Software on Chip and Liquid Loop Cooling. They also come in flexible system configurations with physical partitioning as well as built-in, no-cost virtualisation technologies via Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones.
The new servers also support Oracle Solaris versions 10 and 11.
