Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX150 S7: Maximised mono socket tower server

 
The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 is a fully functioning mono socket tower server delivering industry leading levels of energy-efficient performance.
 
The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 all-round server is the world’s most energy-efficient in its class, setting a new SPECpower ssj2008 world record.  
 
It is ideal for SMEs and Branch offices for non-mission-critical infrastructures where the main focus is on expandability and availability.
 
For more information on the TX150 S7 please click here
 
PC PRO recommends the Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX150 S7
 

“For general systems management, its ServerView Suite software focuses purely on server management. Consequently, we found it much lighter to deploy and easier to use than Dell's Management Console or HP's Insight Control Edition, both of which try to manage everything on the network.”
 
“Physically, the TX150 S7 is up to the usual high standard of build quality we expect from Fujitsu. It's well designed internally, with easy access to key components, and there's room to expand”

“The TX150 S7 is extremely quiet. The processor and memory sockets are covered by a large shroud, which has its own cooling fan. The only other fan present is the one in the power supply. It's a good choice for small offices”

“Energy efficiency is a high priority. The PRIMERGY TX150 S7 sports the latest low-power Xeon L3426 and teams it up with single or dual 89% energy-efficient power supplies”

“Fujitsu's iRMC2 offers a similar level of remote management features to HP's iLO2 controller. It provides a tidy web interface with details about critical components including fans, processor, memory, voltages and the power supply”
 
“For general systems management, its ServerView Suite software focuses purely on server management. Consequently, we found it much lighter to deploy and easier to use than Dell's Management Console or HP's Insight Control Edition, both of which try to manage everything on the network.”

“Fujitsu's latest pedestal server may be an entry-level solution for SMBs but it packs in a hardware specification that many larger businesses wouldn't turn their nose up at.”

 Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY TX150 S7 Sets Ground- Breaking SPECpower Benchmark
 
·         Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY TX150 S7 all-round mono socket server is the world’s most energy-efficient in its class, setting a new SPECpower ssj2008 world record. The server achieved a best in class result of 2187 ssj_ops per single Watt of electricity.

·         Additionally, the TX150 S7 has achieved Best 1-socket server performance rates with SPECfb rate base2006, SPECint rate base2006 and SPECint rate 2006.

You already know that Fujitsu ETERNUS entry level systems are fast. Test results released today (26th April) are even better. Whether doing database or file IO, the ETERNUS DX90 did more of it, faster, than its key competitors. And the next best after the DX90 is the DX80.

It’s not just Fujitsu saying it. In December, writing for ITPRO, Dave Mitchell’s review of the ETERNUS DX80 said
“… throughput of no less than 1380MB/sec .,. its raw performance is quite remarkable.”
More recently, one of our resellers told us “the DX was quick and easy to set up but most of all very fast. To get that level of performance from HP and HDS we would have to go the “next level” a level we are not accredited to go to and is prohibitively expensive for us to do so. We are thus advising our customers that the best option for price and performance is by far the Fujitsu Eternus range”.

It’s not just the entry range that’s fast. Earlier this month the latest Storage Performance Council released the benchmark data for the ETERNUS DX440. The results were remarkable: the ETERNUS DX440 beat every competitor, whether based on performance, throughput or price/performance.
In the last 50 years, server performance has increased a millionfold. Disk performance is barely a hundred times better.

That’s why, when we designed the ETERNUS range of disk storage, we paid particular attention to disk performance. The results speak for themselves.

Fujitsu. We make storage better.
