Key Features
  • This enterprise server has up to 64 processors (up to 1,024 cores) and huge memory capacity (up to 32 TB) for superior enterprise application performance.
  • The new 3.0 GHz SPARC64 X processor, with supercomputer technology, provides superior performance for enterprise workloads such as OLTP, ERP, BIDW, SCM, and CRM.
  • Software-on-chip instructions on the SPARC64 X processor accelerate key database functions.
  • CPU Activation feature economically and rapidly meets capacity requirements.
  • Flexible resource configuration using, physical partition, Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Solaris Zones virtualization technologies.
  • The system is managed by the independent service processor’s eXtended System Control Facility (XSCF).
  • Power-saving features are built in to the processor and the server.
  • This server features mainframe-class RAS features for 24/7 mission-critical applications.
  • Firmware updates during system operation are supported.

The Fujitsu M10-4S server is a flexible and scalable system that delivers high performance and high availability for mission-critical enterprise applications. It is an ideal platform for enterprise-class workloads such as large-scale online transaction processing (OLTP), business intelligence and data warehousing (BIDW), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and customer relationship management (CRM). It also supports cloud computing and large workloads such as big data and analytics. The Fujitsu M10-4S is a modular system that can combine “building blocks” to create a large, scale-up server with as many as 64 processors and up to 32 TB of memory, and it can also be deployed in a scale-out configuration suited for parallel distributed processing. Its SPARC64 X (“ten”) processor was developed to deliver dramatic high-speed performance by implementing software-on-chip instructions in hardware to accelerate key software functions. The Fujitsu M10-4S server enables highly flexible system configurations with physical partitioning as well as built-in, no-cost virtualization technologies (Oracle VM Server for SPARC and the Oracle Solaris Zones feature of Oracle Solaris).

Mainframe-Class RAS and Maximum Scalability

The Fujitsu M10-4S server delivers high availability to support the most-demanding mission-critical applications. It comes with mainframe-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features including automatic recovery with instruction retry, error-correcting code (ECC) protection with extended ECC support, guaranteed data path integrity, configurable memory mirroring, and many more RAS features. Furthermore, major system components are redundant and hot-swappable for increased availability and serviceability.

Building Blocks for Maximum Flexibility

The Fujitsu M10-4S is a modular system that can create a large, scale-up server with as many as 64 processors and up to 32 TB of memory. Each Fujitsu M10-4S building block has four 16-core processors. A Fujitsu M10-4S server can have from 1 to 16 building blocks, for maximum configuration flexibility. The blocks are connected via a Fujitsu-developed interconnect technology that ensures high bandwidth, low latency, and linear scalability. The server can also be deployed in a scale-out configuration for parallel distributed processing.

Gradually adding resources such as CPU, memory, and PCI slots is a matter of installing additional building blocks and connecting them via the high-speed interconnect. For example, the minimum configuration of 1 building block can be used for development and testing stages, but as the application is put into production, more building blocks can be added to increase capacity. Fujitsu’s high-speed interconnect enables linear and dynamic scaling from 1 building block and 4 processors up to 16 building blocks and 64 processors to meet the most-demanding application requirements.

Oracle Solaris: The World’s Most Advanced Operating System

Only Oracle offers the Oracle Solaris Application Guarantee Program, offering guaranteed binary and source-code compatibility for applications dating back to 1997 or earlier. The Fujitsu M10-4S server supports Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11. In addition, Oracle Solaris 8 and Oracle Solaris 9 are available using Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers. Oracle Solaris 10 delivers Oracle Solaris ZFS and revolutionary features such as dynamic tracing (DTrace), cryptographic infrastructures, user and process rights management, and the Oracle Solaris IP Filter.

Advanced Virtualization and Consolidation

SPARC-processor-based servers are among the industry’s best consolidation and virtualization platforms. The Fujitsu M10-4S server supports as many as 16 physical partitions, and as many as 256 Oracle VM Server for SPARC domains can be deployed in each physical partition, enabling massive server consolidation and virtualization. Each physical domain can be further optimized with Oracle Solaris Zones, which supports thousands of software partitions.
