Munich, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present its “Dynamic Infrastructures” products for Webciety, public sector clients and Green IT at CeBIT in the Public Sector Parc in Hall 9 and at Green IT World in Hall 8. The product innovations that will be on display include the first zero-watt PC, which consumes absolutely no power in standby mode, a PRIMERGY server for small businesses that has optimized energy savings, as well as service packages covering all aspects of IT infrastructure. During the weekend of CeBIT on March 7 and 8, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, together with its partners, will present “Citizens meet Civil Authorities” in the Public Sector Parc in Hall 9. This presentation will demonstrate the solutions used by modern administrations and will prove just how fast, simple and cost-efficient direct communication between citizens and civil authorities can be.
Webciety and Dynamic Infrastructures
Webciety is one of the major themes of CeBIT 2009, a neologism made up of two words “Web” and “society.” The Internet has penetrated every aspect of modern life like no other technology before it, changing the rules of play and shifting the balance of power. “Webciety demands flexible IT infrastructure, best provided with ‘Dynamic Infrastructures ’ from Fujitsu Siemens Computers,” said Joseph Reger, CTO, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, speaking at the CeBIT preview press conference for Fujitsu Siemens Computers on January 20 in Hamburg.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ Dynamic Infrastructures portfolio is tailored to customers’ strategies and priorities and adapts dynamically to a wide range of different scenarios. It features infrastructure products and services that are second-to-none in the industry; pre-tested infrastructure solutions; managed infrastructures for the purposes of out-tasking parts of the company; and infrastructure-as-a-service, a package that allows customers to use an infrastructure solution from Fujitsu Siemens Computers in parallel with other users, only paying for what they really need.
Package for public clients in the Public Sector Parc
Public administrations need infrastructure solutions, services and consulting for their IT systems now more than ever. The aim is to cut costs and increase flexibility. Fujitsu Siemens Computers has been helping its customers to meet this challenge for many years. As part of the Dynamic Infrastructures concept, products, services and solutions are linked together to form a holistic architecture in which partner products can be integrated as necessary. This results in infrastructure solutions that are tailored dynamically and individually to customer needs. Based on the example of electronic identities, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will show innovative solutions for security infrastructure in relation to the EU service directive, legally secure long-term archiving and implement eCard API frameworks.
Green IT is more than just hype for Fujitsu Siemens Computers. By participating in the Green IT World program, the company underlines its dedication to computer technology that makes wiser use of resources and has less impact on the environment. Joseph Reger, CTO, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, speaking at the CeBIT preview press conference for Fujitsu Siemens Computers on January 20 in Hamburg, emphasized the importance of Green IT. He explained that the company was promoting the theme so that customers would understand the concrete and measurable economic benefits from Green IT. Aiming to reduce energy consumption, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present PCs, servers, storage systems and dynamic solutions for data centers at CeBIT that have been optimized to ensure low resource consumption. Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ Green IT concept covers production, provisioning and operation right up to the product disposal.
5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 – 0 – watt power consumption in standby
Even if they are not being used and the screen has long gone dark, PCs and monitors connected to the main power source continue to consume 1 to 5 watts of electricity in standby mode depending on the model. Fujitsu Siemens Computers is taking new directions and presenting innovative solutions to radically reduce and even avoid power consumption in standby mode:
Low Power Soft Off
Most of Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ business PCs already meet the new EU legislation requirements for reduced power consumption in standby. These PCs consume less than the
1 watt of power in standby that is stipulated by legislation that goes into effect on January 5, 2010. In addition, the Augsburg-based engineers from Fujitsu Siemens Computers developed the “low power soft off” function, which already pushes the standby power consumption rates of ESPRIMO C/E/P5730 and ESPRIMO E/P7935 PCs and CELSIUS W370 workstations to below 0.5 watts.
Hard on the heels of the zero-watt monitor: the zero-watt PC
Launched at last year’s CeBIT, the zero-watt monitor is now established in the market. As the next step, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present a world’s first at CeBIT 2009: a zero-watt PC that consumes no power at all in standby mode, while still remaining administrable. The first models to feature this new function, ESPRIMO Green PCs, should be available for purchase by the middle of this year.
ESPRIMO Mobile Thin Client
The ESPRIMO Mobile Thin Client offers business customers a new mobile platform for connecting end-users to virtualized environments. After all, many application scenarios do not need a fully equipped notebook. For example, in the case of Windows Terminal Server, the applications themselves run on the server, while the notebook simply serves as an input and output device. To avoid data losses, the data is stored securely on the server. The ESPRIMO Mobile Thin Client’s operating system is stored in a flash memory and protected against unauthorized changes. Intelligent administration tools make it easy to update the client. WLAN, Bluetooth and UMTS can be configured on an optional basis, depending on individual requirements.
Managed Services cut IT costs for small to medium-sized businesses
At the CeBIT forum for small to medium-sized business in Hall 5, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will participate in the campaign “Next Business IT - Excellence in Small to Medium-Sized Businesses” with the topic of Managed Services. As well as a series of live interviews with the partners in the program, there will also be podium events with lectures, roundtables and dialogs. In addition, the TDS Stand in Hall 4 will also feature information about Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ Managed Services products. The “Managed Maintenance” service package will bring together a variety of IT services providers under a uniform Service Level Agreement. This is intended to deal with the friction losses that occur when operating complex IT infrastructures where different service providers are responsible for different aspects of the IT infrastructure.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers has also bundled together some new “Managed Office” packages for CeBIT. Now, small to medium-sized companies can save costs by having the leading European provider of IT infrastructure effectively support their PC workstations. Services are divided into task areas, such as the “Managed Workplace4you basic” starter pack and the delivery of fully configured workstations with “DeskView Load.” Depending on the scope of services, the customer will pay a fixed monthly amount for each PC workstation to be supported, enabling costs to be calculated on a fixed basis.
ESPRIMO MA: a flexible solution for the healthcare sector
Already presented in prototype form at CeBIT 2008, the ESPRIMO MA is now going into serial production. The mobile device makes the work of doctors, nurses and paramedics easier and caters for the needs of a diverse group of people with a single mobile information system that is part of the hospital routine. Fanless and fully sterilizable, the ESPRIMO MA is also suitable for use in sterile environments. Functions like integrated Highspeed 3G/UMTS and WLAN make digitally archived patient data available anywhere anytime and brings the vision of the paperless hospital one step closer to reality. Two smartcard readers ensure that sensitive patient data is secure. ESPRIMO MA fits seamlessly into Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ “Dynamic Infrastructures” as well as in clinics existing IT infrastructures.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers is showing a notebook from the LIFEBOOK series at CeBIT that has a new kind of anti-theft protection, using technology from Intel and Absolute among others. By integrating this security solution, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is responding to the growing need among its customers for effective security concepts and protection for business data. Anti-theft protection offers two essential functions: tracking lost or stolen hardware and the option to store data on the hard disk centrally in the system via remote control, if necessary. In addition, the notebook can be locked - also using remote access. Fujitsu Siemens Computers offers the entire security solution package from a single source. Announced in November 2008 at the VISIT IT conference, this innovation will be unveiled to the public at large for the first time at CeBIT. Anti-theft protection will be available beginning in April 2009 as an option in the business notebooks in the ESPRIMO Mobile series and in the LIFEBOOK E8420 and LIFEBOOK T5010.
PRIMERGY TX150 S6 - special Green IT model for small businesses
Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present a special model of its PRIMERGY TX150 S6 server at CeBIT that has been further optimized in terms of energy efficiency for use in small businesses. The system unites low energy consumption with high data throughput . Because the PRIMERGY TX150 S6 is also extremely quiet, it is also suitable for use in office environments, retail businesses and back offices.
Server technology - out with the old, in with the new
Fujitsu Siemens Computers offers an extensive portfolio of PRIMERGY servers based on industrial standard processor technology. The new server generation further expands on the strengths of the predecessor models. Numerous new features such as a further improved cooling concept known as “Cool-safe” and a new generation of processors ensure energy-conscious, efficient deployment, particularly in the area of virtualization. In the Green IT World in Hall 8, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will display different generations of servers side-by-side, offering an opportunity to compare energy efficiency progress.
Dynamic Storage Infrastructures
Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present two technologically pioneering storage infrastructure solutions, CentricStor FS and CentricStor VT, at CeBIT 2009. While the CentricStor storage system will consolidate FS File Services in the data center, CentricStor VT is the first virtual magnetic tape solution that stores business data intelligently and automatically on hard disk or magnetic tape according to given criteria. In addition, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will show how the business aims to realize complex SAN environments and complete data backup environments and solutions such as Efficient E-Mail, combining the best products of their kind and adapting them to customer requirements. Fujitsu Siemens Computers offers Solution Service contracts for these solutions to coordinate the maintenance of all the components involved in the entire solution.
The CeBIT weekend
During the CeBIT weekend, the Public Sector Parc in Hall 9 will be dedicated to the theme of “Citizens meet Civil Authorities.” On March 7 and 8, interested citizens will have an opportunity to see for themselves the solutions that modern IT administrators use with the help of Fujitsu Siemens Computers and its partners. They will see just how fast, simple and cost-efficient direct communication between citizens and civil authorities can be. These administrative technologies save time and money, speed up processes and are easier to use for individual citizens. The CeBIT weekend aims to demonstrate these benefits in practical terms to reduce the reluctance to accept eGovernment and break down prejudices among individuals and businesses.
