News Facts

  • Fujitsu and Oracle today announced worldwide availability of enhanced Fujitsu M10-1, M10-4 and M10-4S servers equipped with the new SPARC64 X+ processor, which has 16 cores and runs at speeds up to 3.7 GHz, providing up to 30 percent more processing power than the previous SPARC64 X processor.
  • The new Fujitsu M10-4S server supports mixed SPARC64 X and X+ chassis in a single system, protecting previous IT investments. In addition, the modular design and Physical Partition Dynamic Reconfiguration feature allow the Fujitsu M10-4S to grow by adding processors, memory and I/O with virtually no downtime.
  • With the extreme performance of SPARC64 X+ processors and unrivaled utilization efficiency, the enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers allow customers to quickly leverage large data sets and access the critical information they need for making real-time decisions in ever-changing environments. The performance and capacity of Fujitsu M10 servers are optimized through core-level CPU Activation and a modular architecture that supports server expansion to easily and economically match business growth.
  • The Fujitsu M10 server line ranges from one SPARC64 X+ processor up to 64 SPARC64 X+ processors. The Fujitsu M10 servers support both Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Solaris 10, as well as Oracle Solaris Legacy Containers for the flexibility to run previous Oracle Solaris generations, thereby improving performance and increasing cost-savings without additional expensive application modification.
  • Oracle Solaris 11 is already widely used in production with customers leveraging its features and benefits for their mission critical deployments. Oracle Solaris provides industry-leading security, performance, scalability and observability for customers' most demanding enterprise applications.
  • Additionally, built-in virtualization features such as physical partitions, Oracle VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Solaris Zones, have helped many Fujitsu M10 customers consolidate and shrink the size and power requirements of their datacenters. The enhanced Fujitsu M10 servers offer excellent computing capability and investment protection and allow larger server consolidation and modernization that can help customers further optimize total cost of ownership.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
