Fujitsu Siemens(Fujitsu Siemens Computers, Inc. (USA), Milpitas, CA) The joint venture of Fujitsu Computers (Europe) and Siemens Computer Systems in 1999. In 2009, Fujitsu bought out Siemen's share and renamed the company Fujitsu Technology Solutions. See Fujitsu.
In the U.S., Siemens Computer Systems evolved out of Pyramid Technology, which was founded in 1981 by former HP employees. In 1995, Siemens Nixdorf acquired Pyramid, and three years later split the computer operation into Siemens Computer Systems and moved retail and banking systems to an independent company, Wincor Nixdorf (www.wincor-nixdorf.com). Over the years, the company introduced several product lines, including the Nile, Reliant and RM families, many of which included a high-speed mesh interconnect for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP). See Siemens.
