Fujitsu Announces Dynamic Cube BX900 Blade Server System

Posted May 14, 2009

Fujitsu has been out of the server game for a while, but now they are back with a bang.  Fujitsu will be getting a new CEO next month and will see their hard drive business get taken over by Toshiba.  Fujitsu has also recently bought out the share of a partnership that they had with Siemens AG called Fujitsu Siemens Computers which will now be called Fujitsu Technology Solutions.  Now Fujitsu is introducing a new product called the “Dynamic Cube.”

The Dynamic Cube is a nickname for the BX900 blade server system.  The Dynamic Cube also refers to the collection of hardware and software needed for virtual servers.  Below are the components needed for the Dynamic Cube:

1. PRIMERGY BX900: The third generation of blade servers with 10U-high enclosure.  The enclosure holds 18 Intel Xeon 5500 (“Nehalem”) processor-based blades.
2. VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Xen: Abstraction layer between the network, servers, and the storage.
3. ServerView Resource Coordinator (SVRC) Virtual Edition: A feature that unifies virtual and physical management.
