Recently I looked at some photographs a customer had taken of his data center some six or seven years ago and was struck by the almost archaic impression: Jam-packed as it was with server racks, UPS cabinets and cables dangling everywhere, it looked more like the depot of a computer museum than an actual functioning installation of any kind. These days, more and more data centers don't appear nearly as crammed, thanks in large part to the arrival of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions such as our PRIMEFLEX packages that wrap up servers, storage and networking gear in a neat bundle and add the required software on top. It's apparent that the rapidly growing market for HCI has created the need for 10 or 40 GbE switches optimized for making these deployments more efficient. With the new PSWITCH series out of the gate, we can now provide all components that are needed for even more successful and expandable PRIMEFLEX deployments.

For several years, neutral observers and potential buyers alike have patiently listened to ICT vendors' ever-evolving stories about future use cases like IoT, Industry 4.0 or smart cities. But captivating as they are, such stories tend to drown out more measured reports about the constant innovation of brick-and-mortar products such as mono-socket servers for small data centers and SMB environments. Our three-part mini-series takes a closer look at Fujitsu's latest offerings in this category of 'everyday gear' and their state-of-the-art capabilities. In the final chapter, we examine the FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY TX1330 M4, our expandable mono-socket tower, which was launched today alongside two cousins, the PRIMERGY TX1320 M4 and the PRIMERGY RX1330 M4.

Every year, vendors and customers alike flock to events like Las Vegas's CES or Berlin's IFA, to show off and learn about the latest trends in consumer electronics. For those among us who are on a quest to build the perfect home entertainment system, both shows are a must-see – only there will you find the adequate audio and video components, storage media, networking cables, and accessories that will elevate you to a whole new level the next time you listen to that overwhelming new 7.1 remaster of your favorite album or watch this year's blockbusters in full and glorious 4K resolution.

Both technically and commercially, Fujitsu's PRIMERGY servers are bringing a lot to the table: They regularly rank among the fastest and most efficient systems in the world and offer customers the best value for their money. But that's not all: Certain configurations may even be ordered and sold faster than you'd think – comparable to sprinters competing in the IAAF Diamond League. These are the configurations included in our value4you (v4y) program.

It's a common situation all IT departments are facing on a regular basis: New servers must be deployed, or old ones need to be replaced because they're no longer powerful enough or otherwise outdated. At times, things can get even more complicated, e.g. when they have to build a whole new infrastructure. When time has come, the first question is who or what will help them to pick adequate hard- and software platforms. With Fujitsu and its well-established "tool landscape," the answer is easy.

Sophisticated cooling technologies can help server systems to remain operative even under conditions that would normally be considered hostile to any type of IT equipment. Plus, if you take a holistic approach, they can also help to reduce a data center's carbon footprint, and enable data center operators to substantially cut costs. All of which explains why Fujitsu's PRIMERGY servers have come equipped with leading-edge cooling systems over the course of the past 14 years – and we're still counting.

Have you ever heard about PUE and DCIE? If not, that's regrettable, but perhaps not too uncommon, as both terms stem from the field of "green computing," i.e. research and development of technology and best practices that enable organizations to build environmentally sound IT platforms. In this context, PUE and DCIE provide metrics that can be used to determine how energy-efficient a given infrastructure truly is – meaning, how much power goes into actual computing performance and how much of it is wasted – and what CIOs and their teams can do to minimize both the operating costs and the ecological footprint of data centers.

In today's hyper-connected economy, it's almost unimaginable that there once was a time when employees and customers were willing to accept that vital IT services could sometimes become temporarily unavailable due to hardware failures. Even more surprising is the fact that this wasn't during the stone age of modern computing, i.e. the 1980s and 1990s – in fact, that era lasted until maybe 10 to 15 years ago, before we took the 24/7 accessibility of data and computing resources for granted. Since then, outages linked to weak or malfunctioning hardware have been widely derided as signs of incompetence on the part of the teams overseeing IT infrastructures and services. Fujitsu's PRIMERGY servers can help them avoid such critique.

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.
