Performance Comparison of Fujitsu PRIMERGY and PRIMEPOWER Servers

The Fujitsu PRIMERGY® RX600 S4 server was chosen as a potential solution since it can accommodate up to 24 processor cores and 128 GB of memory, making its resources comparable to those of a medium-to-large partition on a PRIMEPOWER® 2500 server.

Comparing Mainframe and Windows Server Transactions per kWh

This paper demonstrates that Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers can run between 3 and 24 times as many transactions per kilowatt hour (kWh) as pre-z10 mainframes running the same business transactions. The transaction range depends on whether the mainframe CICS transactions have been Web-enabled, and which technique of Web enablement has been employed. Cost figures are also used to show that moving transactions of this type from the mainframe to Windows Server®â€“based PRIMERGY servers can save between 19 and 80 carbon credits per year.

Innovative Technologies Realizing Compact PRIMERGY TX120 Server

The need for internal control in enterprises reflects a growing market demand in recent years for data integrity. In line with this trend, enterprises that previously used PCs for data management are now introducing server systems for centralized data processing. For such introduction, customers tend to rely on three main points in selecting a server: size, low noise, and low power consumption. At the same time, innovations are being made in space-saving technology and low power consumption technology. Given these market trends and technological innovations, Fujitsu has introduced the PRIMERGY TX120. ---[Akinao Tanikawa, Tadashi Mantani, Noriaki Kobayashi]
