Once restricted to areas like scientific research, oil and gas exploration or car development, techniques like simulation or CAD/CAE have long since left their original turf and become commonplace. Today, you can hardly find a product or service that has not been developed – or at least significantly improved – without the help of computer programs: bicycles are tested in virtual wind tunnels, and smartphones are exposed to the possible effects of gravity when hitting simulated surfaces instead of real ones. Even the weather forecasters on your favorite news channel now present CGI animations that show in detail how the sun, wind and rain will behave in the next 24 hours. As a result, more and more companies need platforms that enable them to perform high-performance computing (HPC) tasks. FUJITSU CELSIUS workstations as well as the FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for HPC fulfill their demands.
In today's business world, companies thrive best if they can implement easy and effective communication and collaboration. Unfortunately, they will often find this is anything but easy, as even technologies designed to facilitate communication often turn out to be obstacles rather than enablers. In particular, employees who are tasked with organizing "virtual" conferences and meetings of geographically dispersed teams have a bunch of horror stories to tell about what can go wrong in the process. The good news is that all it takes to overcome these difficulties is a FUJITSU mini PC loaded with Intel's Unite™ software and devices equipped with the proper app.
In a data-driven economy, organizations of all kinds and sizes must retain more information than ever before. But the more bits and bytes they keep, the harder they are to protect. That's why a few years ago we introduced our ETERNUS CS line of data protection appliances, which simplified and automated a lot of key functions and helped customers master this task. Meanwhile, however, ongoing exponential data growth and an increasing demand for effective and targeted information management pose new challenges that prompt us to refresh the product line and further push the envelope of data protection (DP). Part 2 of our blog explains what's new about the ETERNUS CS800 S6.
