Nowadays, we are seeing more and more instances of virtual environments being installed in a private cloud. Since these virtual environments are in many cases similarly configured, it makes sense to automate the configuration procedure. Part 2 of this blog provides a practical example of how to automatically configure a Solaris Zone with Puppet.

From the early 2000s into the first half of the 2010s, blade systems were the platform of choice for many companies that had to shoulder large computing and storage requirements while at the same time coping with budget and space restrictions. Meanwhile, however, the former cost-cutters are facing serious technical challenges that in turn are likely to drive up infrastructure spending. The best way to avoid this predicament is to progressively retire blade systems and replace them with a set of modular servers that provide identical or better functionality while also allowing for efficient data center operation and management.

As more and more businesses are deploying high-volume, high-value workloads such as OLTP or real-time analytics, data centers are struggling to strike a balance between performance and reliability on one hand, and space and cost efficiency on the other. Fujitsu's new PRIMEQUEST 3x00E systems help them achieve that goal much faster and with higher accuracy than before.

Even in this age of cloud computing and "Everything-as-a-Service," robust and cost-efficient tower servers still form the infrastructure backbone for many small, medium and large enterprises. Fujitsu's new PRIMERGY TX2550 M4 tower system adds the latest technologies and options to an already solid design concept proven via its TX2560 M2 and TX2540 M1 platforms. As a result, the TX2550 M4 provides powerful performance for a wide range of workloads, and at the right economics.

In our previous 3-part blog, we explained how to configure a Hadoop Cluster Node environment. The following entry illustrates how to properly set up Apache Spark™ as part of the intended environment. Unfortunately, presenting our case in a single piece would likely provoke many TL;DR reactions, so we opted for another mini-series. Below is part 3, which describes the required software installation; part 1 is available here; and part  2 resides here.

Have you ever wondered what might happen once the ever-increasing amount of data stashed in today's storage systems hits upon a certain threshold and becomes too big for conventional analytics? Then you're probably on the same page as the researchers and engineers who have developed the discipline of High Performance Data Analytics, or HPDA for short, in recent years. This blog discusses some of HPDA's key concepts – and explains how Fujitsu's new PRIMEFLEX for HPC solution can help customers tackle the challenge of analyzing a ceaseless stream of data when retrieving real time information is critical to your business.

Over the summer, Intel launched its long-awaited, highly-touted Xeon® Processor Scalable family of CPUs, which was supposed to simplify cloud computing and virtualization as well as HPC and AI scenarios and drove the release of new server designs from the world's leading ICT vendors. Among the first products available on the market was Fujitsu's 2017 class of dual- and quad-socket rack and scale-out systems, collectively dubbed PRIMERGY M4. This fall, we are launching the 'second wave' of these systems, starting with the FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2520 M4, the scalable rack server for essential business apps.

The idea of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – a sapient, if not sentient entity created by humans in their own image – has fascinated people since ancient Egyptian sculptors alleged they were able to breathe life into the sacred statues they carved out of stone. Since then, the concept hasn't lost its attraction, although it didn't always come with positive connotations, in literature and movies at least. Over the past 60 years, however, scientists and engineers have tried to devise more humane forms of AI – devices that may help us solve existential problems instead of creating them. NVIDIA's GTC Europe conference provides us with a perfect platform to demonstrate our most recent advancements in the field.

Ever since its debut in 2014, our all-in-one data protection appliance has been deployed by numerous businesses of all sizes in order to implement enterprise-class backup and recovery. One key reason for this success lies in a unique combination of reliable Fujitsu hardware and industry-leading Commvault software functionalities that ensure the appliance is equally useful in physical and virtualized environments. Our summer series of screen demos offers comprehensive insights into the ETERNUS CS200c's rich and varied feature set. In the last and final episode, we are focusing on creating on-the-spot backups with the help of Commvault's IntelliSnap technology.
