【Fujitsu】FUJITSU FM-360SV Series

Fujitsu announced the FM-360SV series of PC servers in June 1994 as replacements for the FMR-340SV (introduced in July 1992) and the FMR-360SV (introduced in November 1993). What set this series apart from Fujitsu’s previous PC servers was the emphasis on scalability in consideration of greater support for applications such as database servers.

Features of the FM-360SV series:

(1)Faster processing
Fujitsu used fast Intel Pentium processors (66 MHz − 100 MHz) and introduced a dual CPU model. The maximum memory capacity was also increased to 384 MB.
(2)Use of ECC memory
Fujitsu used memory with ECC*1 technology as a means of improving reliability even with expanded memory capacity.
(3)Support for disk arrays*2
Fujitsu introduced disk array configurations to increase disk capacity.
(4)Uninterruptable power-supply unit
*1. ECC: Error checking and correction. A memory-error handling method capable of correcting one-bit memory errors and detecting two-bit errors.
*2. Disk arrays: Also known as RAID (redundant array of inexpensive disks). This methodology places multiple disks in parallel so they can be controlled as if one single disk both for greater disk capacity and for higher reliability.
