Fujitsu M10 entry-level and mid-range systems deliver approximately 30 percent performance improvement, boost database response
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Fujitsu announced today that the space-saving Fujitsu M10-1 as well as the compact Fujitsu M10-4 mid-range servers are now available worldwide in additional configurations featuring the new 3.7GHz SPARC64® X+ 8 core processors providing approximately 30 percent performance improvements (*1). When coupled with the Fujitsu M10 servers’ industry-leading compute capability, the enhanced servers can cut batch processing times for business data and tackle a broad range of Big Data analyses — from such sources as SNS, sensors and mobile devices — to accelerate decision making and increase business productivity.
The Fujitsu M10 server family (*2) running Oracle Solaris® provides performance and flexible capacity to meet the growing needs of organizations across all industries. The new Fujitsu M10-1 and M10-4 models offer the same higher per core performance of the high-end Fujitsu M10-4S server. The compact 1U Fujitsu M10-1 and the powerful workhorse Fujitsu M10-4 servers are now offered in three processor speeds, allowing organizations to get more from their IT investments. Fujitsu M10, with Oracle Solaris and the highly scalable Oracle Database 12c, is well-suited for mission-critical applications.
Since the worldwide release of the Fujitsu M10 UNIX server in 2013, the Fujitsu and Oracle SPARC® collaboration has led many customers to trust their organizations IT infrastructure needs to Fujitsu M10 servers. Customers across a wide range of industries are enjoying the benefits of deploying mission-critical applications on Fujitsu M10.

1. Approximately 30 percent performance improvements
The comparison is made by per core performance.
The per core performance is calculated by dividing measured per socket values by the number of cores per socket.
- 38.4 per core = 307 divided by 8 cores, where 307 is measured with the following conditions.
- Fujitsu M10-1 server with SPARC64 X+ (3.7GHz, 8 core) processor
- Oracle Solaris 11.2 SRU6.4
- Version 12.4 of Oracle Solaris Studio
- 29.3 per core =468 divided by 16 cores, where 468 is measured with the following conditions.
- Fujitsu M10-1 server with SPARC64 X+ (3.2GHz, 16 core) processor
- Oracle Solaris 11.1 SRU15.4
- Version 12.3 of Oracle Solaris Studio 10/13 Patch Set
Details and the latest information on this benchmark will be published on the SPEC® webpages at http://www.spec.org. New models benchmark results have been submitted to SPEC.
