Fujitsu at CeBit 2011 with innovative launches
Company revealed wireless PC display, Business Class Slate, Dynamic Infrastructure blocks
Fujitsu is unveiling its wireless PC display and revealing its new secure Business Class Slate PC at CeBIT 2011, in Hanover, Germany.
The company will also be showcasing its new Cloud Program for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and providing an insight into its Dynamic Infrastructure Block technology.
Fujitsu's wireless display opens up opportunities for "park and play" computing, where displays are powered by being placed on a desktop or conference table hot-spot.
The wireless 22-inch Fujitsu displays use SUPA technology (Smart Universal Power Antenna) to draw power via magneto-induction from transmitter antenna that can be built-in to desks or office panels. The displays receive picture images via wireless USB from a desktop or notebook PC, with a range of up to 10 metres.
The wireless displays are expected to go into production later in 2011.
Fujitsu has also launched its Business Class Slate PC model, the Styl Q550 at CeBit 2011.
The Slate PC is a 10-1-inch keyboard-less tablet PC designed with security in mind. According to Fujitsu, the device meets the most stringent IT security requirements of both governments and businesses.
Visitors to CeBit will also have a chance to look at Fujitsu's Dynamic Infrastructure (DI) blocks, designed to help enterprises boost business effectiveness, efficiency and economics.
DI blocks were created for data-centres of the future and are designed to deliver powerful automated pools of computing resources made up of server, storage, and network and virtualisation technology.
These blocks allow for automated provisioning of IT infrastructures, enabling enterprises to flexibly commission entirely new IT systems in minutes rather than hours or days.
DI Blocks will be sold as pre-integrated, scalable and modular building blocks available in a variety of configurations to meet different capacity and performance needs.
Fujitsu's new ISV Cloud Program, also available for viewing at CeBit 2011, includes pre-configured cloud business services for online service sales, as well as a complete Fujitsu Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. This is designed to make it easy for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to migrate business applications into the cloud.
The Program allows ISVs to sell their software directly to customers as a service via the internet.
The Program was launched in November and the first 10 IPVs that signed up with the project are making money from the initiative, according to Fujitsu.
