Fujitsu To Unveil Itanium 2 Servers

Fujitsu next month will launch a new line of multiprocessor servers based on Intel’s Itanium 2 processor. The new line, called PrimeQuest, will be unveiled at a press conference in San Francisco currently scheduled for April 5. The PrimeQuest products will be Fujitsu’s first high-end Itanium servers. The company currently sells Primergy servers with as many as four Itanium processors, but will expand its product line to include servers with between eight and 64 Itanium processors with the launch of PrimeQuest. Fujitsu’s first two PrimeQuest systems will be the PrimeQuest 480, a 32-processor system that will ship with as much as 1,024G bytes of memory, and the PrimeQuest 440, which will house as many as 16 processors and 512G bytes of memory. Both systems will initially ship with the 1.6 GHz and 1.5 GHz versions of Intel’s “Madison 9M” Itanium 2 processors.
