Fujitsu have announced a compact server that uses less energy than a desk lamp and offers a variety of RAID setups for home-office and small business users. The Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX120 S2 resembles a compact desktop PC, but uses Intel's latest power-saving Core 2 Duo processors paired with up to 16GB of RAM and remote ServerView Server Management control.
Both the P8400 (25W) or T9400 (35W) CPUs are available, using 25-percent less power than rival systems. As for storage, the TX120 S2 can be fitted with either four 320GB SATA or 146GB 15,000rpm SAS hard-drives. Nonetheless, according to Fujitsu it's still whisper-quiet at 27dB.
