Fujitsu is targeting cloud computing providers with its new Intel Xeon 5600-based servers. According to the news report on PC World, Fujitsu has customized the server for this market by making changes like removing some of the power and cooling features found in individual servers to apply them at the rack level instead.

Fujitsu's new Xeon 5600-based server is designed for cloud computing providers.

"The servers eliminate the need for the space behind racks where hot air is usually blown out. Instead, the CX1000 funnels the hot air out through the top of the rack, allowing racks to be placed back-to-back in a way that takes up less room, Fujitsu says.

"Fujitsu expects to begin shipping the servers at the end of March, priced at US$90,000 for a rack of 38. The CX1000 will compete with products from IBM, SGI, Hewlett-Packard and Dell, who have all released servers designed specifically for cloud providers."
