Fujitsu Siemens Computers presents 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 off mode or hibernating, 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 and demonstrate just how fast, simple and cost-efficient direct communication between citizens and civil authorities can be.
Dynamic Infrastructures for the public sector and Green IT
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. Together with its partners, Fujitsu Siemens Computers will show 25 innovative solutions, tailor-made for the public sector – such as solutions around the electronic identity card or electronic signature and technologies used in hospital environments or with geographical information systems.
All systems green: focus on an environmentally conscious IT and energy efficiency
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, emphasized the importance of Green IT, stating that Fujtisu Siemens Computers always would focus on the concrete and measurable economic benefits of Green IT for the customer, beyond the goal of saving the planet. 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 off-mode or hibernating
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 off-mode and hibernating.
Exceeding EU directives: 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 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: With its 0-Watt PC, Fujitsu Siemens Computers has solved the dilemma of stand-by energy losses: Even though it does not use any power in off-mode or hibernating, the PC remains administrable during a pre-configured time slot and can receive software updates outside of usual working hours. Within that defined time slot, the PC automatically wakes up and is waiting for updates. Once the time slot is over, it goes back into 0 Watt standby. The user can turn on the PC again with the usual “on” switch at the front of the PC. The first models to feature this new function, the ESPRIMO E7935 0-Watt and the ESPRIMO P7935 0-Watt, should be available by the middle of this year.
Masters of virtualization: Thin Clients by Fujitsu Siemens Computers
At CeBIT, Fujitsu Siemens Computers showcases select models from its powerful thin clients range which are the ideal hardware basis for the virtual workplace. But here, too, the trend goes towards more mobility. With the ESPRIMO Mobile Thin Client Upgrade Kit, Fujitsu Siemens Computers therefore offers business customers now a mobile platform for connecting end-users to virtualized environments – without compromising security. It provides full mobility with a virtual workplace without the threat of local data loss, as all data is saved to the server instead of to a local hard disk. WLAN, Bluetooth and UMTS can be configured on an optional basis, depending on individual requirements. With new additional solutions from companies like CITRIX and VMware, however, the user can access the virtual machine even when offline, and check it back in as soon as he is online again. Many new virtualization technologies such as this mobility feature, or even the latest announcement of so called “bare metal hypervisors,” will create entirely new user scenarios within the next years.
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 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 workplaces. Services are divided into task areas, such as the “Managed Workplace4you basic” starter pack and the delivery of fully configured workplace with “DeskView Load.” Depending on the scope of services, the customer will pay a fixed monthly amount for each workplace, enabling costs calculating on a fixed basis.
Safety first: Anti-theft protection by Fujitsu Siemens Computers
Fujitsu Siemens Computers is showing select notebook models from the LIFEBOOK series at CeBIT that feature a new kind of anti-theft protection, using technology from Intel and Absolute Software Corporation. 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. The new 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 LIFEBOOK E8420 and LIFEBOOK T5010.
PRIMERGY TX120 S2 – special Green IT model for small businesses
Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present a special model of its PRIMERGY TX120 S2 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 TX120 S2 is also extremely quiet, it is also suitable for use in office environments, retail businesses and back offices. Configured as an office server, the PRIMERGY TX120 S2 uses only 50 to 60 watt in a usual operating; even when challenged it does never exceed a consumption of 120 watt. This means, that it saves more than 25 percent on power compared to its predecessor, and features a new range of power-saving Intel® Core™2 Duo processors that also boost system performance. As a result, the server is equipped to meet the Energy Star 4 requirements.
Server technology – out with the old, in with the new
At CeBIT Fujitsu Siemens Computers presents a selection from its 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 and demonstrate how server technology has achieved ten times the performance at the use of the same amount of power.
Storage to the full: Dynamic Storage Infrastructures
Fujitsu Siemens Computers will present its latest technologically pioneering storage infrastructure solution, CentricStor VT, at CeBIT 2009. 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 it will 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.
Highlight and conclusion: 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 just how fast, simple and cost-efficient direct communication between citizens and civil authorities can be, thanks to the solutions provided by Fujitsu Siemens Computers and its partners. 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.
