The new features makes the PRIMERGY BX630 even more suitable for the broadest range of server applications and enables customers to profit from their benefits in the complete data center. The PRIMERGY BX630 8-socket Server Blade blades server is available now across EMEA.

Based on AMD Opteron� processors, the PRIMERGY BX630 brings performance to the next rung on the scale-out and scale-up ladder. Customers can now turn four 2-socket servers into an 8-socket server by deploying the Direct Connect Architecture of the AMD Opteron processors and connecting the blade via the HyperTransport� link, a unique Fujitsu Siemens Computers feature. Based on their needs at any given time, users can switch to and from running 2-socket servers to 4-socket or 8-socket servers � all without investing in new hardware. This �2+2+2+2� performance is equal to that of a standard 8-socket server, and with dual-core AMD Opteron processors, this blade concept even provides 16 physical processor cores for up to 128 GB memory from one 8-socket blade system. This enables IT managers to better utilize server capacity and flexibility, creating a more agile and dynamic data center. This unique adaptability makes the PRIMERGY BX630 an ideal choice for a broad range of application areas, from demanding terminal server farms to high performance database or data center application server configurations.
