Hardware Comparison 1.2-Socket Rack-Mounted Servers HP ProLiant DL380 G7 vs. Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S6 2.1-Socket Rack-Mounted Servers HP ProLiant DL120 G7 vs. Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX100 S7 3.1-Socket Tower Servers HP ProLiant ML110 G7 vs. Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX140 S1

2 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED1 The PRIMERGY RX300 S6 was compared to the HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server from the various viewpoints. The results show Fujitsu is the clear winner in the areas of cooling, features and serviceability. Fujitsu provides hot-swap components, server cooling efficiency and on-board failure notification LEDs, which can be good selling points. As for hardware design, both servers are closely competitive. When it comes to power consumption, it seems HP has an advantage over Fujitsu in being able to provide lower-voltage servers. 1.2-Socket Rack-Mounted Servers HP ProLiant DL380 G7 vs. Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S6

6 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED5 No. Hardware comparisons Comments CategoryTested items Is Fujitsu better than HP? 1 Power consumption Power supply efficiency × HP has an advantage over Fujitsu in terms of server power consumption. Both servers have equivalent levels of power conversion efficiency (Just a difference of certification organizations). 2Cooling Proper ventilation in servers Internal server temperatures Fan control ◎ The HP server has a number of small ventilation holes, but the actual temperature measurements show the Fujitsu server can operate at much lower temperature. Both servers provide fan control features. 3Design Server weight Noise levels △ The lighter-weight Fujitsu server is more space optimized. HP has an advantage over Fujitsu in terms of noise levels. 4Features Hot swap components Supported LAN ports Supported PCI slots Data security ○ The PRIMERGY RX300 offers hot-swap fans. The HP server can contain more LAN ports than Fujitsu PRIMERGY. But LAN ports on the Fujitsu server have LEDs that can indicate link status and the LAN speed. The Fujitsu and HP servers hold the same number of PCI slots. HP and Fujitsu are closely competitive in being able to provide advanced security features (TPM). 5Serviceability Failure notification LEDs The ability to perform maintenance tasks while the server remains in a rack enclosure. ◎ The Fujitsu server ensures that notification LEDs are lit even when the server is unplugged. This is not offered by HP. The dedicated fan cover on the Fujitsu server can be removed/ reinstalled while server remains in rack. On the other hand, the HP server must be uninstalled from a rack enclosure for every maintenance task. It seems Fujitsu is a clear winner on server cooling, features and ease of serviceability. On the other hand, in the area of hardware design, HP has a slight advantage over Fujitsu. ◎ :Particularly superior ○ : Superior △ : Equivalent×: Inferior *Information in this page is based on data obtained from Fujitsu’s internal tests and measurements, and Fujitsu provides no guarantee of the accuracy and integrity of the information.

HP DL380 G7 vs. Fujitsu RX300 S6 Fujitsu and HP are at the same level

9 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED8 Due to the insufficient number of ventilation holes, the HP server fails to deliver an adequate volume of fresh cold air required to cool the internal components. There’s no ventilation holes around the disk area, and it will likely increase the risk of disk failure due to thermal problems. Limited air intakes. Insufficient ventilation holes at front and rear of the HP server. The small holes cannot deliver sufficient t volume of fresh cold air. Front Very small vent holes around hard drives. Rear Small vent holes are scattered at the rear of the server, but they are not aligned with air flow. Sufficient ventilation holes are reserved at the front and rear of the server to ensure fresh cold air is routed to the internal components. The extremely air-permeable honeycomb design to send fresh air to hard disks. The rear side of the server has large perforated ventilation holes aligned with airflow to further improve cooling efficiency.

10 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED9 A multi-layer arrangement of heat-generating components will create hot spots within the server. Not many components sit on the motherboard to mitigate congestion. The component layout is optimized in align with airflows to cool all components efficiently and effectively PCI slots Front Rear Many components sit at the rear of the system board (Near the entrance of PCI card slots). Air-intake holes are arranged between PCI slots, allowing fresh cold air blowing to PCI cards. Many components sit at the rear of the HP system board. The congested component layout produces hot spots within the server chassis, consequently leading to lower mean time before failure (MTBF). A few ventilation holes near the congested area.

11 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED10 Hot air discharge Cold air intake Hot spots Hot air generated from the server circulates within a server rack. Fresh air flows between CPUs. FAN No space between CPUs. Hot air discharge Hot air discharge Not many components sit on the motherboard to avoid a congested layout. The Fujitsu server uses a straight-line cooling method to streamline cold air movements within the server chassis. Thermal design of the HP server is not optimized (Fewer ventilation holes than Fujitsu PRIMERGY, non-straight airflow paths). That makes it difficult to deliver air volume required to cool all internal components, and produces hot spots within the server chassis. CPU FAN CPU PSU PCI Hot air discharge The multi-layer arrangement of components will produce hot spots near the entrance of PCI slots. Besides, cold air is not delivered directly to this area due to the internal server design, consequently PCI cards may have lower MTBF.

12 FUJITSU CONFIDENTIAL Copyright 2012 FUJITSU LIMITED11 * Arrhenius theory deals with the temperature dependence of the reaction rate constant, which can be used for accelerated aging test. Component life lengths Short The HP ProLiant server operates at 10˚C higher (Max.) than the PRIMEGY server. Long Low High Temperature Fujitsu PRIMERGY is much less susceptible to thermal issues, allowing longer component life. Server temperature measurements revealed that the HP server operates at a 10˚C higher temperature (Max.) than the Fujitsu server. During the test, both servers with their default settings were identically loaded. A scientific study (Arrhenius Theory of Reaction Rate*) says lifetime of temperature- dependent components (i.e. Capacitors) is halved for every 10 degree Celsius increase in temperature.

Fujitsu servers seem to be more suitable for customers with floor space constraints. This configuration cannot be installed in an office space with floor loading capacity of 500kg/m². The Fujitsu servers are lighter than HP’s, allowing higher- density server deployments. This configuration can be installed in an office space with floor loading capacity of 500kg/m². *These calculations assume the rack enclosure weighs 150kg net, and installs in 1m². *Total weights shown above include rack rails and cable arms. * Typical floor load limits in normal office buildings: 300 to 500kg per square meter.
