New Fujitsu Solaris/SPARC Servers Reflect Commitment to Industry’s Broadest Choice of Platforms, Best Services From a Single Vendor


April 17, 2007

Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today discussed how the addition of its new SPARC Enterprise(TM) servers deliver on the Fujitsu strategy and commitment to offering the broadest choice of platforms and the best customer service in the industry. The new servers, announced in a separate release today (“Fujitsu and Sun Microsystems Set the Standard for Open Systems Computing With Fastest, Most Reliable Solaris/SPARC Servers”) increase the breadth of Fujitsu technology solutions, which include tightly integrated, pre-tested solutions that solve their customers’ most challenging business issues and help them lower total cost of ownership as they plan for the future.

“The new high-performance SPARC Enterprise servers represent another major milestone for our strategy, designed to solve the most complex real-world challenges of our customers through flexible, highly reliable hardware and software that leverage the latest integration, virtualization, and automation technologies,” said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing at Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation. “We surround these solutions with the absolute dedication of our service professionals to customer success and to meeting or exceeding environmentally friendly regulations. In the end, it’s all about enabling customers to choose the right technology for their specific needs, while giving them the confidence that every solution they choose will deploy and function as expected, and every issue that arises will be resolved.”

Interoperability Increases Choice

SPARC Enterprise servers running Solaris(TM) 10 deliver a level of performance that will likely reshape the open systems computing market, and Fujitsu has made it easy to deploy the new servers into existing infrastructures. SPARC Enterprise servers have been fully tested to be 100 percent interoperable with the Fujitsu line of PRIMEPOWER® servers and ETERNUS® storage solutions, as well as 100 percent compatible with the complete Fujitsu line of software solutions for business and IT management, including the Interstage Suite for legacy modernization and enterprise compliance management, the CentraSite® SOA registry and repository, Systemwalker® enterprise management software, and PRIMECLUSTER® clustering technology for independent monitoring and immediate response to system and component failures.

For customers relying on other platforms, Fujitsu continues to drive innovation with its Dual-Core Intel® Itanium® 2 Processor-packed PRIMEQUEST® server line for high-end, mission-critical Windows® and Linux-based applications, and its PRIMERGY® family of tower, rack, and blade servers for industry-standard Windows and Linux-based deployments.

Beyond Solutions

Customer choice cannot exist without customer satisfaction, and Fujitsu goes far beyond simply delivering solutions based on innovative technologies by making customer success the key objective of every customer encounter. Fujitsu treats each customer as a full business partner, helping them resolve the technology issues that prevent them from fully leveraging their IT investments, even if the problem is not with products sold by Fujitsu. Concern for customers and the world we live in has prompted Fujitsu to pursue one of the most aggressive environmental strategies in the industry. All covered Fujitsu products manufactured after January 1, 2007 meet or exceed the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) acts passed by the European Union and California. Fujitsu is also expanding its end-of-life IT products-recycling service to nine locations in six countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, the US, and multiple countries in Southeast Asia.
