New Virtualization Benchmark Underlines Continuous Performance Improvement with Fujitsu PRIMERGY Rack Servers

Businesses gain competitive advantage by choosing the system- and price-performance of PRIMERGY

(PresseBox) (Regensdorf, ) Fujitsu today announces its PRIMERGY RX200 S6 rack server holds pole position in VMware's new VMmark V2.0 industry benchmark, which is now extended to measure servers on both performance and scalability for applications running in virtualized environments in a multi-host virtual environment. In a separate benchmark, PRIMERGY RX rack servers have retained all three top slots in TPC-E price-performance tests for more than two months, making Fujitsu the first vendor to sustain triple top results in two and a half years.

Such strong benchmark results provide independent validation that Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX series rack servers deliver industry-leading performance in the business-critical areas of databases, virtualization and enterprise resource planning. Customers looking for investment protection and faster payback can rely on best-in-class performance results that validate the advantages of choosing Fujitsu servers.

A series of independent benchmark results ensure that Fujitsu's PRIMERGY RX range stands out in a commodity market:

- The PRIMERGY RX200 S6 is designed to deliver gains in performance, expandability and productivity, and features a significantly improved performance/power ratio over the previous generation. This system now holds an early lead in the VMmark V2.0 virtualization benchmark, in the category for 24-core servers.*
- Crowning its position as best-performing 2 socket rack server, the PRIMERGY RX300 S6 holds the TPC-E benchmark world record for best price/performance in online transactional database processing (OLTP). Fujitsu also takes second and third places in the Top Ten ranking for best price/performance in the TPC-E benchmark with the 4-socket PRIMERGY RX600 S5 and the 8-socket PRIMERGY RX900 S1. Moreover, the PRIMERGY RX900 S1 holds the number 1 position in the TPC-E Top Ten Performance results list of the Transaction Processing Performance Council. **
- The PRIMERGY RX900 S1 achieved an excellent performance result on the two-tier SAP® Sales and Distribution (SD) standard application benchmark, running SAP enhancement package 4 for the SAP ERP 6.0 application and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as the database management system (DBMS) platform. This further highlights the system's excellent performance as a DBMS platform. ***

Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President Datacenter Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: «Leading scores for PRIMERGY RX rack servers underline our focus on continual performance improvement. Our goal is to push the boundaries of performance innovation, as demonstrated by the results that confirm our focus on designing rack servers to meet the most-pressing business needs: reliability, performance, manageability and energy efficiency, supported by comprehensive Fujitsu services.»
