Munich, September 01, 2021 – Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers are now certified and available for Windows Server 2022 – the latest version of one of the most popular server operating systems (OS) and the heartbeat of data centers around the world.
The latest innovations in the new Windows Server include advanced multi-layer security and more secure remote working. In combination with Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY servers, customers can benefit from even more robust levels of security as well as heightened flexibility, efficiency, and productivity – and have a flexible platform to modernize applications with containers or implementing other IT migration plans with confidence.
The world’s most popular server operating system
Windows Server keeps the digital world running as the server OS platform of choice for critical services and applications. Its position in the data center market means that this latest release of Microsoft’s server OS is a significant milestone in the innovation calendar for data center managers and IT strategists.
Addresses growing cybersecurity threats
With the ever-growing number of cybersecurity threats and the rapidly escalating impact of incidents, security is a top priority for IT leaders. FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY and Windows Server 2022 include new security features such as Secured-Core Server, Secure Connectivity and Platform Firmware Resilience (PFR). Secured-Core Server combines powerful threat protection and provides multi-layered security across hardware, firmware, and the operating system. Secured-Connectivity adds an additional layer of security in transit for advanced protection. With PFR, the system can protect the platform firmware, detect damage, and restore it to a known good state.
More secure remote working Being able to work from anywhere is an important factor for many businesses today. Above all, the security of company data and applications is a top priority. With Windows Server Remote Desktop Services, IT administrators can easily enable users to access applications and desktops from anywhere. The platform offers more secure access to virtualized applications, remote desktop access and simplified management. With the integrated Remote Management Controller (iRMC) and the Infrastructure Manager Software (ISM) from Fujitsu, IT leaders can also access their data center from anywhere at any time to get an integrated view and centralized control.
Christian Leutner, VP & Head of Product Sales Europe at Fujitsu, says: “Data-driven transformation continues to advance, presenting clients with new challenges. More data has to be processed, more apps and services must be available and function properly. With Windows Server 2022 and Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, users benefit from a perfect match with even greater security and better system performance. The combination of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, which are highly-respected by customers for their proven reliability, and the important new features in Windows Server 2022 give customers a secure, future-proof environment for today’s and tomorrow’s workloads and business needs.”

Workloads benefit from updated backend infrastructure for collaboration and messaging and virtualization, databases, and graphics-intensive workloads.
Platform capabilities that support business-critical workloads and improves developer velocity

Consequently, Microsoft has focused on bringing platform capabilities and tools that improve support for business-critical workloads.
