Fujitsu doesn't build Sun clones! That really is insulting for them ;-) 
They do offer Sparc-hardware, but that's a bit higher up the market.

On the other hand, they also offer nice x86-server hardware. We've had 
our hands on a RX300 (2U, dual woodcrest, six 3.5" sas-bays, integraded 
lsi-logic raid-controller) and found it to be a very nice machine.

But again, they also offer (the same?) Broadcom networking on board. 
Just like Dell and HP. And it is a LSI Logic sas-controller on board, so 
if FBSD has trouble with either of those, its hard to find anything 
suitable at all in the market.

Best regards,
