3.1 Features

The FUJITSU Server BS2000 SE Series comprises several models whose total operating performance is
determined by the number of CPUs in the Server Unit. All models have at least one CPU for BS2000 OSD/XC, the
BS2000 operating system complemented by additional system-related software products.
A FUJITSU Server BS2000 of the SE Series (SE server for short) consists of the following components:
Management Unit (MU) with SE Manager
An autonomous server known as the "Management Unit" (MU) is integrated into the rack for monitoring and
central operation of the system.
For SU /390 the MU performs SVP operation.
Remote service of the SE server is performed by means of AIS Connect (over the internet). For AIS Connect the
Management Unit requires an internet access over the administration LAN. The customer operates the access
for remote service via the SE Manager.
Server Unit
A /390-based Server Unit (SU /390) as well as an x86-based Server Unit (SU x86) enables operation of BS2000
(Native BS2000 or VM2000).
In the basic configuration the SE server is equipped with one Server Unit:
SE /390 in its basic configuration with one SU /390
18 models with 1 to 16 processors are available.
SE x86 in its basic configuration with one SU x86
The SU x86 provides BS2000 performance solely on the basis of x86 technology. Several models are
available with 1 to 16 XEON processor cores. In terms of processor performance, configurability and
scalability of the monoprocessor performance, the SU x86 models range below the SU /390 models.
SE servers SE700, SE500 and SE300 can optionally be equipped with additional SU x86s. For example, an
SE700 can be equipped with up to two SU300s, and an SE300 with up to three SU300s.
SE servers SE710 and SE310 can only contain exactly one SU.
Net Unit, for SU /390 with HNC
Gigabit Ethernet Switches are integrated into the rack for internal communication. In the case of SE /390 the Net
Unit is by default redundant in design. In the case of SE x86, redundancy of the Net Unit is optional. In the case
of SE /390 one ore more HNCs provide the LAN connections for the SU /390.
Rack console and KVM switch
Application Unit (AU)
Optionally up to 32 AUs can be operated on the SE server for customer applications. An x86-based AU permits
operation under Linux, Windows, VMware or other hypervisors.
Peripherals (storage)
Optional hardware components:
On SE310 ETERNUS DX100 disk storage systems resp. on SE700/SE500/SE300 up to two ETERNUS JX40
disk storage systems can optionally be integrated into the rack to back up the user data and can be connected
to an SU x86 or AU. Further disk storage systems (e.g. ETERNUS DX) can optionally be connected via Fibre
Channel.
On SE710/SE310 ETERNUS LT140 tape libraries resp. on SE700/SE500/SE300 ETERNUS LT40 S2 tape
libraries with LTO drives can optionally be integrated into the rack to back up the user data and can be
connected to an SU x86 or AU. Further tape libraries (e.g. ETERNUS CS HE and Scalar i500, i6000, 10000)
can optionally be connected via Fibre Channel.
