Fujitsu PRIMERGY Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in Several Magic Quadrant Server Reports 2006


SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 3, 2007—Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced that its PRIMERGY® industry-standard x86 servers have been positioned in several Leaders quadrants of recently published Gartner Magic Quadrant server reports1.

The Fujitsu PRIMERGY rack, tower and blade servers continue to make gains in the Application, Web, High Performance Computing (HPC) and Infrastructure server categories. The PRIMERGY servers offer industry-leading design and performance and are well-positioned for the growing Windows and Linux-based application markets.

According to Gartner, “Leaders” are vendors who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction, and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.

Fujitsu offers a complete line of PRIMERGY tower, rack, and blade servers, from single processor servers for small offices to 16- processor systems intended for enterprise database or large scale server consolidation through virtualization. Whether the need is for affordable entry-level servers, compact and scalable blade systems, or advanced multiprocessor servers capable of handling the most demanding data center applications, the PRIMERGY line delivers a highly reliable x86 architecture with rock-solid design and industry-leading performance for Windows- and Linux-based applications.

“We believe our position in the Leaders quadrants of these Gartner Magic Quadrant server reports is a direct reflection of the excellent overall design and reliability of our PRIMERGY servers,” said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing at Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation. “Our customers continue to confirm that the PRIMERGY server line offers excellent performance for the dollar, and the dedicated attention of Fujitsu Customer Service results in outstanding value and lower total cost of ownership playing a key role in the Fujitsu TRIOLE® strategy to optimize the IT infrastructure.”
