Back in April, a so-called Product Change Notification from Intel suddenly appeared online, providing CIOs and IT departments with a first glimpse at the naming conventions and tech specs of the company's upcoming "Purley" line of server processors. Essentially a 'port' of the Skylake microarchitecture to the Xeon brand, it is intended to serve as the "foundation for secure, agile, multi-cloud data centers" and gives users a wider range of "workload-optimized" performance options to choose from. Starting in July, the Purley platform – officially dubbed the Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family – will appear in our new, fourth generation of dual- and quad-socket PRIMERGY servers as well as the PRIMEQUEST 3800B.

While the majority of mono-socket PRIMERGY systems consists of tower servers, Fujitsu has long made it a rule to also offer a rack version that uses the same components and basic concepts, only this time in a 1U housing – or pizza-box, as some might say. The result is an affordable, highly configurable server that fits in almost everywhere and efficiently handles simple as well as business-critical tasks.

Over the years, Fujitsu has often been lauded for its ability to build servers that are small enough to fit into almost any environment, but still offer robust performance and a comprehensive set of capabilities. Our new PRIMERGY TX1320 M3 was designed to keep up that reputation – it's a state of the art, ultra-compact full-fledged server that SMEs can utilize to expand their business.

Back in the late 1990s, many self-appointed IT gurus seemed slightly amused when Microsoft – then still led by founder Bill Gates – proclaimed its five-year-old server OS was now ready to compete in the data center market. Today, these announcements look like some of the most humble forecasts ever to come out of Redmond,: last August, researchers for IT pro network Spiceworks found that editions of Windows Server are now powering 9 out of 10 on-premises machines (87.7%), with the rest running Linux or Unix derivatives. With Windows Server 2016, Microsoft continues its quest for a similar position in the cloud.

With Windows Server 2016, Microsoft has unleashed the second generation of its cloud-ready server operating system. Along with technical and functional improvements, this latest release introduces a new, core-based licensing model for the popular Standard and Datacenter Editions that replaces the traditional processor-based approach. According to Microsoft, this method "provides a more consistent licensing metric [...], improves workload portability" and generally helps to streamline the licensing process.

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.
