Fujitsu debuts PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN to simplify enterprise ICT, virtualization infrastructure



Fujitsu America recently announced availability of Fujitsu Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN, a hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) product that integrates software-defined storage (SDS) technology into a physical server. By leveraging PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN, IT organizations can more rapidly deploy the core virtual infrastructure foundation needed for their software-defined data centers (SDDC).

PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN is fully tested and delivered on Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY, the server platform optimized for virtualized environments. Fujitsu delivers technology based on improvements in usability and operability on top of Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based server platforms and VMware vSAN 6.6 for increased performance and security.

This configuration delivers the power and flexibility enterprises need to deploy a number of cost-cutting, efficiency-boosting infrastructure types, including virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), virtualization infrastructure and private cloud infrastructure.

Furthermore, PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN ships fully loaded with Fujitsu-developed software, Fujitsu Software ServerView Infrastructure Manager (ISM) for PRIMEFLEX, which helps eliminate issues related to installation, operation and expansion. As a simple and easy next-generation platform, ISM for PRIMEFLEX enables easy, flexible infrastructure operation of a customer’s business environment as it grows and evolves.

The comprehensive Fujitsu Integrated System PRIMEFLEX portfolio is concentrated on enabling IT organizations to be more responsive and agile in meeting the needs of their end-users, through adding new levels of simplicity in the data center around virtualization, private cloud, big data and high performance computing.

PRIMEFLEX is a comprehensive and growing line-up of powerful systems that are pre-defined, pre-integrated and pre-tested. These dramatically simplify complexity, coming as an all-in-one package which combines servers, storage, network connectivity and software.

Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN comes preinstalled, pretested and ready to run. Fujitsu ISM for PRIMEFLEX enables easy deployment of both hardware and software and is fully integrated with VMware vCenter management, allowing businesses to scale as their needs evolve.

The offering delivers efficient PRIMERGY servers that provide reliable infrastructure as well as a track record of outstanding performance in virtualized environments. Its flexible configurations enables capacity to be added in easy and affordable building blocks without the upfront cost of traditional storage environments. Fujitsu offers support and services that make day-to-day operations reliable and worry-free.

“With a seemingly endless range of ICT infrastructure options available, it’s never been more difficult – or more crucial – for enterprises to make the right choice for their unique business,” says Heather Engen, Head of Platform Products Group, Fujitsu America. “With the new PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN, organizations of any size can select a configuration to suit their present workload requirements, but scale up as necessary, providing an optimized and future-proof platform. This flexible solution takes advantage of Fujitsu industry-leading hardware acumen and VMware cost-effective virtualization capabilities, enabling our customers to transform themselves into software-defined businesses that are more likely to disrupt, than be disrupted.”
