Fujitsu Offers Family of Powerful, Reliable Servers for Economy-Minded Businesses

PRIMERGY Econel 230R S1 Debuts as the First Entry-Level Rack Server Delivering Business-Class Performance on a Tight Budget

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 2007) - Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced the PRIMERGY(R) Econel 230R S1, the first economy-minded PRIMERGY Econel rack server that delivers business-class performance and scalability. Designed as an entry-level server for the small enterprise, the PRIMERGY Econel 230R S1 features the Dual-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processor along with the reliability and storage capacity needed for a standalone application server, web server or terminal server.

Many small enterprises build servers using low-cost PCs, which do not have the availability features found in true server platforms. This puts their critical data at risk of loss. Fujitsu developed the PRIMERGY Econel family of servers to provide small businesses with the security and reliability they need at a price within their typical budgets. To help keep data secure, the PRIMERGY Econel server line offers ECC memory protection and integrated RAID disk mirroring. The Fujitsu "easy change" design makes it easy to install or replace components, such as memory and hard drives.

"With the Fujitsu PRIMERGY Econel line of servers, Fujitsu is targeting an underserved market with solutions that meet the very specific IT and budget needs of the small enterprise," said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing and servers for Fujitsu Computer Systems. "Econel servers deliver the same reliability and are backed by the same high-quality service as the entire award-winning Fujitsu PRIMERGY line."
