The Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX600 S4 server was chosen as a potential solution since it can accommodate up to 24 processor cores and 128 GB of memory, making its resources comparable to those of a medium-to-large partition on a PRIMEPOWER 2500 server. Benchmark test results show that a PRIMERGY RX600 S4 server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and using Intel Xeon processors can perform as well as or better than a similarly configured PRIMEPOWER 2500 server running Sun Solaris 10 and using SPARC processors. Furthermore, the PRIMERGY RX6400 S4 server also has a much lower total cost of ownership and better scalability.
