World’s Best Virtualization Platform: FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST 2800E3


Not too long ago, we shared with you the news about our record-breaking PRIMERGY RX4770 M3. Now yet another FUJITSU Server has achieved "gold status": the PRIMEQUEST 2800E3 ranks among the fastest systems when its gets to virtualization.

As of August 23rd, 2016 the latest generation FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST 2800E3 has crossed a magic line: in a configuration with 4x4-way partitions this system currently holds the world record in the VMmark virtualization benchmark in the performance only category with a superb 114.47 @ 100 Tiles and reached a value of 100 Tiles as the first x86 server ever.

This again underlines what is well known: with its unique partitioning functionality, the FUJITSU Server PRIMEQUEST 2800E3 is an ideal system for consolidation projects, in which virtualization capabilities are of utmost importance. You can be sure to get the market's most out of up to eight sockets and up to 24 TB of memory on an x86-based system. Congratulations to everyone who was involved – and of course everyone who is using such a 21st century server system!
