Fujitsu and Oracle Enhance M10 SPARC Servers

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. and TOKYO, Japan, April 8 — Fujitsu and Oracle today announced worldwide availability of enhanced Fujitsu M10-1, M10-4 and M10-4S servers equipped with the new SPARC64 X+ processor, which has 16 cores and runs at speeds up to 3.7 GHz, providing up to 30 percent more processing power than the previous SPARC64 X processor.

The new Fujitsu M10-4S server supports mixed SPARC64 X and X+ chassis in a single system, protecting previous IT investments. In addition, the modular design and Physical Partition Dynamic Reconfiguration feature allow the Fujitsu M10-4S to grow by adding processors, memory and I/O with virtually no downtime.

With the extreme performance of SPARC64 X+ processors and unrivaled utilization efficiency, the enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers allow customers to quickly leverage large data sets and access the critical information they need for making real-time decisions in ever-changing environments. The performance and capacity of Fujitsu M10 servers are optimized through core-level CPU Activation and a modular architecture that supports server expansion to easily and economically match business growth.

The Fujitsu M10 server line ranges from one SPARC64 X+ processor up to 64 SPARC64 X+ processors. The Fujitsu M10 servers support both Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Solaris 10, as well as Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers for the flexibility to run previous Oracle Solaris generations, thereby improving performance and increasing cost-savings without additional expensive application modification. Oracle Solaris 11 is already widely used in production with customers leveraging its features and benefits for their mission critical deployments. Oracle Solaris provides industry-leading security, performance, scalability and observability for customers’ most demanding enterprise applications.

Additionally, built-in virtualization features such as physical partitions, Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones, have helped many Fujitsu M10 customers consolidate and shrink the size and power requirements of their datacenters. The enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers offer excellent computing capability and investment protection and allow larger server consolidation and modernization that can help customers further optimize total cost of ownership.

Since the first product release of Fujitsu M10 in 2013, the Fujitsu and Oracle SPARC business relationship has led many customers to trust their businesses to Fujitsu M10 servers and realize the benefits of deploying mission-critical applications on the Fujitsu M10. The enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers announced today will further contribute to customers’ competitiveness.
