PETALING JAYA: Fujitsu introduced a new, energy-efficient entry-level server in neighbouring Singapore. The Primergy TX100 S2 server is tagged with the price of a personal computer.

The company said the system is ideal for small and medium businesses that are seeking to increase the productivity of their office environment through the consolidation of IT tasks, such as network printing, data archiving and the provision of network drives.

In addition to a keen price-performance ratio, the server comes with Fujitsu’s Zero-Watt technology that keeps energy consumption to a minimum, helping to further lower IT operating costs, Fujitsu Asia Pte Ltd said in a press release.

Contrary to conventional servers, which draw a trickle of residual power even when they are switched off, the Primergy TX100 S2 draws 0.0 watts when it is turned off.

This reduces power consumption and heat output from the system cooling, and also protects the system from external hack attacks overnight and on weekends, Fujitsu said.

The new server has been awarded the maximum three stars by Fujitsu’s own stringent Green IT labelling scheme. It is available now, with prices starting from S$999 (RM2,300). No pricing for the Malaysian market was announced. — Bernama
