Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers supports VMware vSphere4 virtualization
Fujitsu Technology Solutions announced optimized support for VMware's new vSphere4 server virtualization technology on PRIMERGY rack and blade servers. All current-generation PRIMERGY server models from Fujitsu are tuned to deliver best results in performance, efficiency and reliability for VMware's new virtualized computing platform, providing a solid foundation stone for datacenter consolidation projects.
vSphere4 from VMware supports Cloud-like server clusters within a datacenter. Fujitsu confirms that the hypervisor has been pre-tested and certified for PRIMERGY customers using blade and rack servers as platforms for virtualization, assuring PRIMERGY customers that the new software will deliver optimum results, out-of-the-box.
"With virtualization going mainstream as the ideal way to consolidate existing server infrastructures, customers are turning their attention to three key topics – system performance, guaranteed headroom for growth, and of course resilience," said Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice-President x86 Server Product Division at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.
"The unplanned shutdown of a single physical server can have a domino effect in a virtualized system environment. Therefore, before awarding certification to VMware's vSphere4, we wanted to confirm its full compatibility with our ServerView management suite. As a result, customers who base their virtualization scenarios on vSphere4 on PRIMERGY servers can be assured of an optimized solution."
