Fujitsu Launches New PRIMERGY Model with High-Speed Virtual Switch

Fujitsu Limited  has recently announced the Japan launch of a new model in its FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY series of PC servers(1), the PRIMERGY RX2530 M4p, which features a high-speed virtual switch optimized for 5G(2) communications.

LowThe new model comes equipped with the Intel Xeon Gold 6138P processor with integrated FPGA(3) as standard and includes a virtual switch for performing packet processing in a virtual network.

By including an FPGA with logic circuits designed by Fujitsu in the virtual switch, the new model delivers packet processing speeds that are roughly 4.5 times faster than a conventional virtual switch using only a CPU, to offer low-latency, high-speed data transmissions. Going forward, Fujitsu will leverage this and other technologies to support an ecosystem of new services in the 5G era and contribute to the DX (digital transformation) of its customers.

The PRIMERGY RX2530 M4p additionally supports the creation of a high-speed network in a virtual environment with interface conversion technology developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and boosting the number of virtual switch ports through the use of multiple FPGAs within the same server.

  1. Low latency in packet processing in a virtual environment

Offloading the virtual switch’s packet transmission processing onto an FPGA integrated with the CPU allows the new model to process 64-byte packets such as voice and sensor data at a rate of 100 million packets per second to achieve processing speeds that are roughly 4.5 times faster than conventional technology. This enables 5G data packet transmissions with extremely low latency.

  1. Easy to convert existing virtual networks into high-speed networks

Because the model is provided together with software that runs the FPGA as a virtual switch, it is easy to convert customers’ existing virtual network environments to high-speed networks using their current settings.

  1. Effective allocation of resources

By using it in combination with an FPGA, the freed-up CPU cores can be applied to processing other applications, including firewall or load balancing, thereby achieving an effective allocation of resources.
