Let's start with the energy efficiency features of Fujitsu's new Primergy BX400, a blade enclosure system designed for the needs of midsize businesses that the company plans to ship in December.According to the spec sheets, the technology -- which can accommodate up to eight server or storage blades in the enclosure -- uses up to 30 percent less electricity than comparable infrastructure and it puts out less heat, which means that the electricity needed to cool it off is also reduced.
(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.
