The FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2540 M5 is the new 2U dual socket rack server for high usability, scalability and cost-efficiency. Its Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family CPUs in conjunction with DDR4 memory technology with up to 3TB up to 12x Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory NV-DIMM modules increases performance to meet the requirements for data center processing, enterprise applications as well as collaboration. The modular design offers excellent expandability of up to 28 disk drives, up to 8 PCIe Gen3 expansion cards, and best-in-class energy efficiency thanks to two hot-plug power supplies with up to 96% efficiency meet the future demands of data growth. To complete the picture, DynamicLoM makes network connections more flexible and ready for future modifications. The Cool-safe® Advanced Thermal Design ensures operation in higher ambient temperatures resulting in lower OPEX.
Wide choice of different types of Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor Family. Each processor offers up to 28 cores, up to 56 threads, 12 memory channels enabling a significantly higher performance and efficiency. They rely on Intel® UltraPath Interconnect for an increased data rate between the CPUs. Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory is an innovative memory technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large capacity and persistence (non-volatility). It revolutionizes the data center memory-storage hierarchy of the past and brings massive data sets closer to the CPU for faster time to insight. In total, up to 7,680 GB main memory in a mixed mode (non-volatile memory + DDR4 @ 2,933 MT/s) are available. What’s more is the support for up to 2x GPGPUs for fast processing.
Enhanced Features for enhanced Computing
The RX2540 M5 comes with onboard LAN for basic LAN, DynamicLoM via OCP slot for extended requirements. A mix&match storage drive bay configuration offers the choice of either up to 8x 3.5-inch HDD/SSD + 1x ODD, 12x 3.5-inch or up to 24x 2.5-inch, up to 8x PCIe 2.5-inch SSD + an additional rear option of 4x 2.5-inch drives, complemented by internal M.2 devices for hypervisor installations. Our power supply units with up to 96% energy efficiency and Fujitsu’s Cool-safe® Advanced Thermal Design for higher ambient temperatures in the data center are available for this server.
Foundation for Trust and Security
Fujitsu ServerView Suite including tools for installation and deployment, permanent status monitoring and control, free-of-charge BIOS, firmware and selected software updates plus TPM2.0 modules and latest operating system support are a great addition.
Revolutionize data center management
Fujitsu ServerView Suite is a free-of-charge management software including tools for installation and deployment, permanent status monitoring and control as well as BIOS, firmware and selected software updates. In addition FUJITSU Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM) provides converged management across multiple data centers. The new ISM Essential license, available free-of-charge provides essential server management and converged monitoring functions.
Ready for the future and data growth scenarios with the performance of two processors – marking the standard of tomorrow with an increase in computing power. Several innovations make this new CPU generation (code-named “Cascade Lake”) even more powerful than the current-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, enabling robust compute capability and increased memory bandwidth for demanding workloads. Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory technology will transform critical data workloads – from cloud and databases, to in-memory analytics, and content delivery networks but also for VDI, CAD or future technologies such as Artificial Intelligence of Virtual Reality applications.
The right Ethernet connection for all: Basic via onboard LAN, extended with DynamicLoM via OCP guarantees the highest flexibility to integrate the server into existing infrastructures – now and in future without overhauling the existing infrastructure. Flexible expandability and diverse options for storage devices permits for the integration of existing and new SSD and HDD as needed. Less today, more in future – or vice versa. On top of that, this server is not only “greener”, but also less expensive over time. Cool-safe® ATD and highly efficient hot-plug power supplies save energy costs.
These features ensure lifecycle investment protection while the comprehensive tools of the Fujitsu ServerView Suite ease the administrators’ life. Moreover, hardware and software security features are very important in a fast-paced world, especially considering cybercrime.
Fujitsu offers comprehensive infrastructure management and server management solutions which is key to efficient data center operations. They provides all the functions for flexible and automated 24x7 IT operations and improves end-user productivity via intelligent and innovative system management solutions. ISM helps improve data center efficiency and overall IT Productivity with converged infrastructure management, paving the path to software-defined data center.
