First Benchmarks Validate PRIMERGY CX1000 Server's Revolutionary New Power-Efficient Design

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/12/10 -- Fujitsu (http://solutions.us.fujitsu.com) today announced the first independent server performance benchmark for its PRIMERGY<sup>&reg;</sup> CX1000 Cloud extension server.
