Fujitsu delivers global cloud strategy
Fujitsu outlines global cloud strategy to complement regional offerings
Fujitsu has announced a new global cloud strategy, as part of its growing delivery of cloud computing services.
The company will deploy a global standardised cloud platform, to completement its existing regional cloud services, to serve regional customers who require a global standardised ICT infrastructure. The service will allow customers to reduce their ICT costs while being more flexible and responsive in their ICT provision, without sacrificing security and availability
Fujitsu launched its first regional cloud service in November 2009, with the launch of its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, and it has several different services available worldwide. The company says that it has been running trials of ICT infrastructures in areas such as agriculture and healthcare, and will continue to expand its partnerships with other vendors to further extend its offerings.
Farid Al Sabbagh, managing director for Fujitsu Technology solutions in the Middle East and Africa said: "Fujitsu's IaaS offering is ideal for companies who want to focus on their own core business and let external experts manage their IT. IaaS benefits classic small and medium enterprises that have little or no own IT support.
"Experiences in first customer projects show that it is also a good match for large corporations looking to cope with peak demand by starting to outsource parts of their IT - with the new globally standardized platform providing globally standardized service levels we can serve these needs even better," he added.
