REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. and TOKYO, April 10 — Continuing their more than 20-year partnership and leadership in mission-critical computing, Fujitsu and Oracle today announced the worldwide availability of Fujitsu M10 servers, based on the 16-core SPARC64 X processor.
Fujitsu M10 servers deliver mainframe class reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) adopted from Fujitsu's 60-years of mainframe development with maximum scalability for mission-critical workloads.
Fujitsu M10 servers scale dynamically from 1 to 64 processors in a modular architecture with core-level CPU Activation that allows customers to easily add resources in Building Blocks to meet changing workload requirements without downtime for existing applications.
Featuring breakthrough technology including Software on Chip and Liquid Loop Cooling, Fujitsu M10 servers provide highly flexible system configurations with physical partitioning as well as built-in, no-cost virtualization technologies via Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones.
Fujitsu M10 servers support both Oracle Solaris 10 and 11 and with the Oracle Solaris Guarantee Program are binary compatible with all current and past SPARC servers for added investment protection.
