News facts:

  • New-generation Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 is completely redesigned to maximise AI acceleration features of new 3 generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory technology.
  • Unprecedented server performance for data-intensive, virtualisation and analytics workloads ensures accelerated business transformation.
  • Wide range of connectivity and expansion options in new 3U form factor leaves ample headroom for future business requirements.

Fujitsu today introduces an IT infrastructure that accelerates data-driven business transformation by enabling enterprises to rely on data, the heart of digital business. As a core component of on-premises data centres, the next-generation quad-socket PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 server pushes server performance for in-memory database and analytics tasks to unprecedented levels.

The new system introduced by Fujitsu provides unprecedented performance to tackle even the highest demands from workloads, with the new PRIMERGY server powered by four new 3 Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with built-in AI acceleration through Intel Deep Learning Boost, and optimised for the fastest RAM memory available – the Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series.

A new system design also defies the laws of physics to pack unmatched amounts of processing power into a 3U form factor – up to 112 cores per system. This smaller footprint enables organisations to downsize on-premises data centres. By providing fast, high-capacity and cost-effective memory for large data sets with up to 48 DIMM modules, including 24 in Intel Optane persistent memory, applications run faster.

A further boost for enterprise workload patterns such as very large virtual machines – used as one of the foundation stones of any digital environment – is also part of the new system, since Fujitsu has doubled the Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) connectivity of the new-generation servers with six Intel UPI.

Comprehensive connectivity and expansion options

The server’s new flexible drive cage design supports up to 24 2.5” SAS/SATA/NVME storage drives. Built-in expandability for future business requirements and extra input/output bandwidth is ensured thanks to a total of 11 PCIe 3.0 expansion slots and a dynamic onboard LAN controller (DynamicLoM) with OCP 3.0 interfaces. The PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 also supports two double-width, full-length GPGPU modules to support deep learning.

Cost-effective, easy server administration and remote lifecycle management are provided via the latest Fujitsu integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC S5), while the Fujitsu Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM) ensures centralised control via a single interface for entire data centre infrastructures including servers, storage, networking, power and cooling.

Christian Leutner, VP and Head of Product Sales, Fujitsu Europe, says: “With Intel’s latest generation processors and memory inside, the PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 provides the outstanding performance and AI acceleration that organisations need in order to handle increasingly complex business requirements and exponential data growth. Machine learning and deep learning workloads are increasingly important for image classification, speech recognition, language modelling and industrial applications, but they are often computationally intensive and often run for hours or days. With these state-of-the-art servers, organisations can now significantly improve the running time of these and other data-heavy workloads.”

“The new 3 Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor delivers the scale, memory capacity and built-in AI acceleration to meet the biggest mission-critical application and data analytics challenges,” said Lisa Spelman, Corporate Vice-President and GM of the Xeon and Memory Group at Intel. “Enterprises equipped with these powerful processors and Intel Optane persistent memory in the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 server will be poised to maximise their potential in the data-centric era.”

Pricing and availability

Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY RX4770 M6 servers equipped with the new 3 Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series are available to order either directly from Fujitsu or via SELECT channel partners from October 2020. Pricing varies according to region and system configuration.

In addition to the new PRIMERGY RX4770, Fujitsu today introduces a new Intel Select Solution. These are workload-optimised configurations for today’s data centre, cloud and network communication workloads that are designed to shorten time to deployment. The latest Intel Select Solutions for Nutanix HCI is based on FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY powered by Intel Xeon processors. More information can be found here.
