First American Real Estate Solutions Consolidates Mission-Critical Data Centers with Fujitsu PRIMEPOWER Servers
Compliance and Simplified IT Management Driving Demand for Standardized IT Systems
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 16, 2007 —Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced that First American Real Estate Solutions (RES ™), the nation’s largest provider of advanced property and ownership information, analytics and services and a member of The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF) family of companies, has completed a three-year project using highly reliable Fujitsu PRIMEPOWER® servers. The First American Corporation is using PRIMEPOWER servers to consolidate several data centers into two—one at its Santa Ana, Calif., headquarters for its primary business servers and the other near Dallas for disaster recovery purposes. Using the virtualization capabilities of the PRIMEPOWER server, RES has simplified IT management, enabling long-term cost savings, streamlined compliance processes and faster recovery in the event of a disaster.
“Serving our financial services customers, who are concerned with compliance, security and cost savings, was among the primary drivers for consolidating our many data centers into two central data centers with a single, consistent infrastructure,” said Evan Jafa, chief technology officer of The First American Corporation. “Fujitsu plays a key role in providing the reliability and scalability that our mission-critical business units require.”
Highly reliable Fujitsu PRIMEPOWER servers allow First American RES to leverage new server virtualization techniques for simplified management and the rapid analysis of petabytes of data for classification, categorization and data backup. Virtualization, along with the PRIMEPOWER multi-processor technology, also enabled the data centers to be constructed at higher densities with reduced power and cooling costs. RES expects the two data centers to handle the company’s mission-critical business requirements for the next five years, delivering ongoing cost savings, simplified IT management and redundancy for disaster recovery.
“Expanding organizations continue to face significant data center challenges around the need to integrate IT infrastructure while driving down costs and improving reliability,” said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. “First American Real Estate Solutions has put PRIMEPOWER servers to their ideal use for data center consolidation and mission-critical reliability for compliance and disaster recovery.”
The PRIMEPOWER family of servers, from 2-processor systems through 128-processor systems, are leading the way in the field of UNIX® servers with their outstanding performance records. This performance leadership is accompanied by an outstanding level of data-processing reliability in the UNIX RISC server market. PRIMEPOWER servers are suited not only for general use, but also for meeting the requirements of data centers and server consolidation. They offer an ideal range of product features in terms of flexibility, reliability, performance and scalability, while meeting the constant demand for reductions in overall costs. PRIMEPOWER servers are one of the key building blocks that support the Fujitsu TRIOLE® strategy for optimizing IT.
