You wait for ages for a Xeon E5 server to be released, and then two come along together: the first example we reviewed was the Dell PowerEdge R720. Now it’s the turn of the Fujitsu Primergy RX300 S7 which, as you’ll see below, proved pretty impressive when put through its paces.
As with the PowerEdge, this seventh generation of the Primergy RX300 is a 2U rack-mount server, equipped with two sockets to take any of the new Xeon E5-2600 (Sandy Bridge-EP) processors that — after considerable delay — finally got their official launch at the beginning of March.
Check out this review of the new Intel Xeon based server from Fujitsu, the ‘Primergy RX300 S7′. It’s always good to see what the different vendors have to offer and what others think of their offerings, I remain a fan of the Primergy series from Fujitsu, we bought one of their entry level servers to test and were very impressed with what it had to offer, I’ll need to read up on what their new RX300 S7 brings us over and above the new Intel Xeon processor. In essence, it’s their equivalent of the HP Proliant DL380 G8p / Dell PowerEdge R720 or IBM x3650 M4.
