Fujitsu adds server to 'zero-watt' hardware portfolio

(Updated July 25, 2010, to add pricing) For smaller companies that are interested in a more energy-efficiency entry level server, Fujitsu has just come out with the Primergy TX100 S2, based on the Intel Xeon processor 3400 series.The big value proposition for the new hardware is that it draws zero watts during its off state; most other server models draw some sort of residual power even they are supposedly powered down.

$599 Viliv S5 ultra portable PC is looking good

I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.

MobileTechRoundup show #138, Doesn't anyone else have a Nerd Club at work?

James, Kevin, and I spent a bit more time than planned talking about the upcoming iPhone 3G on MobileTechRoundup show #138, but we eventually did move on to talk about lots more in the world of mobile tech. I talked about my experiences with upgrading the Nokia N78 over the air and James is going to try it out soon too. How much can be said about WiMAX and how much will it cost? Kevin let me know about Ubuntu MID Edition and I may actually load it on my Fujitsu U810 since the Intel A110 processor is supported. Great news that the public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 will soon be available for Windows Mobile and UIQ owners. We also introduced listeners to the Nerd Club.

Willcom D4 runs with an Intel Atom processor in a sleek form factor

I am a big fan of ultra portable devices and particularly enjoy using my Fujitsu U810 with long battery life. I just read about the Willcom D4 UMPC over on the CNET Asia Crave blog and have to say this looks like one impressive device. It is one of the first devices running with an Intel Atom processor. Akihabara News was able to get some hands-on time with the device and posted over 80 photos showing it off in all its glory.

Solaris 9 to drive Fujitsu servers

Less than a month after Sun Microsystems brought its new Solaris 9 operating system to its servers, Fujitsu Technology Solutions has followed suit with its own servers. Fujitsu's Primepower servers, which include 128-processor behemoths, use Sparc64 GP processors that work similarly to Sun's UltraSparc chips and thus can run Sun's operating system and the higher-level software available for it. Fujitsu said Solaris 9 improves security and the amount of computing performance that can be wrung out of multiprocessor servers. Solaris, like IBM's AIX and Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX, is a version of Unix that competes with Linux and Microsoft Windows. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
