SUNNYVALE, CA – Fujitsu America, Inc. today announces the availability of Fujitsu Integrated System PRIMEFLEX® for VMware® vSAN™, a hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) product that integrates software-defined storage (SDS) technology into a physical server. By leveraging PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN, IT organizations can more rapidly deploy the core virtual infrastructure foundation needed for their software-defined data centers (SDDC). PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN is fully tested and delivered on Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY®, the server platform optimized for virtualized environments. Fujitsu delivers technology based on improvements in usability and operability on top of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor-based server platforms and VMware vSAN 6.6 for increased performance and security.
