Fujitsu Primergy RX2540 M1 review


Fujitsu has produced an affordable 2U server workhorse

Latest Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and DDR4 technology ; Upgradeable DynamicLOM networking ; Cool-safe design for use in high temperatures

Dated management tools ; Cost of high-end Xeon processors can be significant ; No on-board hypervisor module

With a lot to like and very few downsides, the 2U Primergy RX2540 M1 represents good value for anyone looking for a flexible data centre workhorse.

Expert review by : Dave Mitchell (

Fujitsu Primergy RX2540 M1


Fujitsu's latest 2U rack server puts up some stiff competition to Dell and HP

Good value; Nicely built; Low power consumption; E5-2600 v3 Xeons; Big expansion

Management tools need a refresh; 8 LFF model can’t be upgraded to 12 LFF bays

The RX2540 M1 can’t match Dell or HP for features or management tools but it is better value. Build quality is excellent, Fujitsu’s Cool-safe works well in practise and its offers big expansion and storage possibilities.
