Today's almost proverbial data tsunami entails a number of consequences that often escape professional and public scrutiny. One is that it drives massive power consumption and energy costs – not only because servers, storage and network equipment suck lots of electricity from the grid, but also because standard technologies used in server and data center cooling add their own fair amount on top of that. This article explains how Fujitsu's sophisticated cooling technology can help solve the latter problem.

Until not too long ago, high-performance computing (HPC) was considered to be a discipline that mainly benefits academia, research, and large governmental or public institutions. But with Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) on the rise, more and more traditional industries – from automotive through healthcare and retail to utilities – have developed, and are still developing, a desire for server systems that will successfully tackle the expected surge of data and workloads. Fujitsu's new PRIMERGY CX600 M1, equipped with PRIMERGY CX1640 M1 server nodes based on Intel's latest-generation Xeon Phi™ processors (aka Knights Landing), was designed to fulfill their desire.

Despite serious warnings from their IT departments, many C-level executives and non-techies still seem to hold on to some popular beliefs about servers and data center infrastructures that may have rung true in the 1990s, but would provoke major outages today. We've picked up on the five most popular of these tales for a reality check and provide ammunition for the next time you have to enter negotiations with customers who want to run 24/7 services without investing in proper hardware.

Today's server systems perform legions of critical functions they weren't tasked with five or ten years ago. As a result, the systems themselves are getting ever more complex, and the same goes for the management duties of a typical server administrator. At the same time, users increasingly depend on reliable IT services and infrastructures, and are becoming less tolerant of delays or downtimes. IT departments are thus forced to look for 'management methods' that will allow them to handle the growing complexity with more ease and confidence. One of these methods is called out-of-band or lights-out management (LOM) and has undergone substantial improvements in the latest edition of Fujitsu's ServerView® Suite.

When you talk about "infrastructures," most people – including IT professionals – automatically envision a few hundred desktops, dozens of servers, and a bunch of dedicated storage systems. But the truth is, they start building those infrastructures much earlier, with the purchase of their first server. So it's all the more important to buy the right system from the get-go – one that's flexible enough to fit into varying usage scenarios and serve as a building block for expanding environments. Fujitsu's refreshed trio of mono-socket PRIMERGY rack and tower servers meets both demands.

The IT revolution of the past decades has massively altered the ways in which individuals and organizations work. At the same time, it has sparked a multitude of ongoing debates about issues such as data growth, performance bottlenecks or optimal compute and networking architectures. Equally important, but somewhat less popular is the topic of critical, database-reliant workloads, so-called database applications: in a world that's increasingly IT-dependent, their number is also constantly on the rise. Unfortunately, the number of adequate server systems that can handle such jobs without wrecking budget plans is fairly limited. Fujitsu's second-generation PRIMEQUEST 2000 systems were built to end that scarcity.

Aside from earthquakes, fires and floods, there are only very few things IT departments dread as much as current fluctuations, power outages, and the data and revenue losses that follow. To counter these, they will typically deploy external uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) to keep servers and storage systems running until they can be shut down in organized manner. The problem with UPSs, however, is that they're bulky, expensive and hard to manage. Fujitsu's Integrated Battery Backup Unit for PRIMERGY Servers (FJBU) is a far better alternative.

Server racks are often considered the dullest parts of a data center. After all, what should be interesting about pieces of furniture that typically look like someone had allowed IKEA designers to cast their artistic visions in steel? At second glance, however, they turn out to be far more sophisticated than most people expect – and hence more relevant for building modern DC infrastructures. Fujitsu's new PRIMECENTER M2 rack family is a perfect example.

With server performance and density growing on an annual basis and data centers ever expanding, keeping the appropriate operating temperature can turn into a real challenge both from a technical and a financial perspective. This is particularly true for so-called scale-out environments, i.e. farms of server clusters that handle massively parallel workloads, as well as for high-performance computing (HPC). With Fujitsu's new Cool-Central® Liquid Cooling Technology in place, administrators can sit back and chill out.

Delivering the right information to the right person at the right time has been a prerequisite for running successful businesses since the days grain trade first emerged in Ancient Egypt. In today's hyper-connected economy, following this key rule is of even greater vital importance than at any point in history. Sadly, many organizations are still unprepared to adapt to this ever-increasing demand for efficiency. Fujitsu's PRIMEFLEX integrated systems are designed to help companies meet this requirement.

Planning and building IT infrastructures is anything but easy – not just from a technical, but also from a business and timing perspective. CIOs and their teams typically want to treat 'their' users to the latest, most advanced services and features, while CFOs and their crews need to keep their companies' hard- and software investments in check. FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY Long Lifecycle (LLC) Versions can help both sides find a middle ground.

Since the turn of the century, once exotic applications like predictive analysis, high-frequency trading, simulation or real-time communication/collaboration have turned into common techniques that lay the groundwork for our hyper-connected economy. While the results are generally positive, the side effects can be profound for organizations that need to follow the trend to stay competitive. That's because these applications only function properly on exceptionally robust, near-infallible backend systems – meaning, mainframe computers with Unix-based OS's and an unusually heavy price tag. And for a long time, standard servers with x86 technology were no alternative.

Anyone who ever had to build data centers from the ground up will tell you what a complex, error-prone, tedious, expensive and time-consuming process it is – and that in the end there's almost always one component that doesn't work as expected. Fujitsu's PRIMEFLEX family of integrated systems helps companies reduce such risks to a minimum.

Data volumes continue to expand, and capacity requirements often exceed the internal storage capacity servers can offer. As a result, many organizations – especially SMBs and start-ups – will often combine servers with cheap external consumer-grade storage to make up for the lack of disk space. Unfortunately, such a setup can seriously harm the performance of both the server and the storage system. A combination of Fujitsu's entry-level PRIMERGY RX1330 M1 rack server with our new ETERNUS JX40 S2 storage subsystem will help users avoid such pitfalls.
