JOHANNESBURG (12/05/2003) - The Primergy TX200 Dual-Processor Tower Server, released by Fujitsu Siemens Computers Holding BV, and available through Annex Distribution Pty. Ltd., is said to be positioned to provide versatile, high-performance server technology.
Powered by Intel Corp. Xeon processors, the Primergy TX200 is designed to run business-critical applications 24x7x365. Special fields of use for Primergy TX200 could be as an intranet or Internet server, communications server for gateways, domains, firewalls and the Web. It is ideally suited to all applications within client/server architectures, the company says.
"Fujitsu Siemens Computers has added a new dimension to its existing TX range. The versatility of the Primergy TX200 makes it adaptable to a variety of environments. It has appeal as an all-round workgroup server for small and medium enterprises, where ease of maintenance, high availability and reliable server operations are prerequisites, in addition to good performance. Alternatively, it can work as a branch computer in small branch offices, where high availability is required, but little technical know-how is present," explains Bill Gradwell, GM at Annex.
