Fujitsu, Oracle launch Fujitsu SPARC M12 Servers

Fujitsu Limited, a global leader in providing information and communications technology solutions, and Oracle, a multinational computer technology corporation, recently announced the launch of Fujitsu SPARC M12, a new lineup of enterprise servers now available nationwide.

With its Fujitsu SPARC64 XII processor, Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers achieved the world’s highest per CPU performance in arithmetic processing. It offers dramatic improvements for a wide range of database workloads, from mission-critical systems to big data processing in the cloud.

The new Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers join the vibrant SPARC technology ecosystem. Together with Oracle’s SPARC systems, the new servers leverage the unique security and scalability features of the Oracle Solaris operating system, as well as the efficiency and versatility of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC virtualization software.

For enterprises, this innovation can help them optimize investments in ICT infrastructure and create better value based on cutting-edge digital technology. It provides support for customers’ digital transformation by providing high-speed processing, as well as safe and stable operations.

Fujitsu cutting-edge IT expertise has been used to develop Vapor and Liquid Loop Cooling (VLLC) technology that cools the interior of the server through the phase change of liquid to vapor. As it happens, it doubles the cooling efficiency, enabling for safe operations when building a private cloud environment with multiple Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers installed in a data center.

The high-end Fujitsu SPARC M12-2S model also offers additional scalability in the form of building block architecture to connect additional Fujitsu SPARC M12-2S server chassis to form flexible scale-up and scale-out servers. By connecting a maximum of 16 building blocks, a single system with over 3,000 CPU threads can be created. Fujitsu SPARC M12-2S servers provide an ideal foundation for private cloud implementations by mitigating initial investment risks while allowing for gradual expansion.

Building on the Fujitsu mainframe heritage and the trusted RAS features found in Fujitsu M10 servers, Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers also provide error detection and recovery mechanisms for error protection across all processor circuits, supporting stable operation of mission-critical processing.

“With the emergence of the demand for greater ICT performance, there has been an increasing volume of data that needs to be processed. This is also combined with a reduction in the upfront costs, especially in operations and management. It has driven the prevalence of Internet of Thing (IoT), big data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in companies,” said Cricket Santiago, chief executive officer of Fujitsu Philippines. “With this new servers, organizations, that use either on-premise or cloud computing, will reap the benefits, especially in boosting their operations.”

These servers are now offered in two models: the two-processor Fujitsu SPARC M12-2 server, and the Fujitsu SPARC M12-2S server, which can be expanded incrementally to a maximum of 32 processors.
