Fujitsu Ships New Line of 'Mainframe-Class' Solaris-Based Servers

Fujitsu and Oracle jointly announced they are shipping a series of Fujitsu M10 servers, based on the 16-core SPARC64 X processor. The M10 servers are designed to deliver mainframe-class reliability, availability and serviceability, adopted from Fujitsu's decades of mainframe development experience.

Fujitsu M10 servers scale dynamically from 1 to 64 processors in a modular architecture with core-level CPU Activation, according to a statement from Fujitsu. This enables customers to easily add resources in building blocks to meet changing workload requirements without downtime for existing applications.

"Fujitsu M10 delivers extreme performance that enables customers to further improve their competitiveness with real-time decisions in the ever-changing world," says Noriyuki Toyoki, corporate senior vice president of Fujitsu. "Fujitsu M10 is our commitment to bring big results to customers in the Big Data era, helping customers maximize their ROI with unique dynamic scalability and mainframe-class reliability."

The servers include features such as Software on Chip and Liquid Loop Cooling, and include a flexible system configurations with physical partitioning as well as built-in, no-cost virtualization technologies via Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones.

Fujitsu M10 servers support both Oracle Solaris 10 and 11 and with the Oracle Solaris Guarantee Program are binary compatible with all current and past SPARC servers, the vendor adds.
