Fujitsu has announced a collaboration with AMD in its new Primergy LX1430 single-slot rack server designed specifically for Internet Service Provider data centres. The new Fujitsu rack server will feature 2nd generation AMD EPYC processors.
The new single-slot rack server from Fujitsu is designed to meet the needs of scale-out cloud environments and will provide significant TCO savings for customers, with its high performance and lower power consumption. The Primergy LX1430 systems feature a single 2nd generation AMD EPYC 7002 series processor with up to 64 cores and 16 memory slots with a maximum of 512GB capacity 3200MHz DIMMs supported.
“We are pleased to strengthen the business relationship with AMD with the new Fujitsu server PRIMERGY LX1430 M1 based on the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor. This joint collaboration will accelerate to deploy AMD EPYC based systems to help customers achieve digital transformation and innovate their businesses.” said Kenichi Sakai, Corporate Executive Officer, Senior Vice President, Head of System Platform Business Unit.
2nd generation AMD EPYC processors are specifically designed for modern data centre workloads. With up to 64 ‘Zen 2’ cores and a 7nm manufacturing process combined with PCIe 4.0, it provides customers with the ideal combination of features to unlock maximum performance in virtualisation, cloud and HPC applications. The Fujitsu PRIMERGY LX1430 also features enhanced RAS functions and a ‘proactive fan function’ that adjusts fan speed depending on ambient temperature to reduce internal temperature and maintain reliability.
“Cloud and Enterprise customers are looking for leadership performance and lower total cost of ownership to support increasingly complex workloads,” said Scott Aylor, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. “The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors deliver single-socket performance at price points that set a new standard for the modern datacentre.”
