New Fujitsu High-End Dual-Core Itanium 2-BasedPRIMEQUEST Servers Offer Mission-Critical Hosting for Linux and Windows Applications
Fujitsu supplies industry-standard databases, middleware and tools for the PRIMEQUEST server environment
PRIMEQUEST Series 500 servers will host the Enterprise versions of the respective distributions at the outset, with any specific extensions (e.g., from Fujitsu) added later.
Going forward, PRIMEQUEST servers will offer unique Fujitsu-originated enhancements to the Linux and Windows operating systems. Where possible, these extensions will be made available to the general community. For example, PRIMEQUEST servers will support the Microsoft Vista (formerly Longhorn) operating system when it becomes available. Vista may contain specific enhancements supporting PRIMEQUEST, but they will be part of the generic set of features of Windows Server. Similarly, Fujitsu is working with the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) on enhancements to Linux, either directly or through Red Hat and Novell, which will improve all Linux distributions in the areas of scalability; reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS); dynamic reconfiguration; virtualization; partitions (XPARs); and more.
