"Cool" New Server Rack Technology from Fujitsu
Fujitsu is claiming, based on a recent test, that its PRIMERGY CX1000 Cloud eXtension server rack technology could possibly have Web hosting and telecommunications applications because of its demonstrated scale-out potential.
The data center hardware manufacturer says that the tests were performed by communications software platform developer Open-Xchange, who provide a popular service among Web hosting providers, to analyze the capacity capabilities of the technology. What they found was that just one 19 inch PRIMERGY CX1000 server rack could support as many as 1.5 million concurrent users.
Fujitsu claims that the PRIMERGY CX1000 will cut power and cooling costs by as much as 20 percent when compared to standard rack server assembly, which makes sense, since apparently the server was built "to deliver as much computing power as possible" per square foot by fitting 38 server nodes into a industry-standard-sized rack.
A big part of PRIMERGY CX1000 is the "Cool-Central" feature built into the server's framework that eliminates the need for a "hot aisle" -- this saves on both cooling and floor space because the servers can be racked up right next to one another.
Designed to provide service to millions of users and help companies stay profitbale, Fujitsu's PRIMERGY CX1000 server rack saves big money on power and cooling costs and helps event he most limited data resource centers get the most out of their technology.
