Fujitsu Deploys Six-Country Global Cloud Platform

Offering highly reliable public cloud services in Japan, Australia, Singapore, the U.S., the U.K. and Germany

Tokyo, June 8, 2011 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced it has begun to offer its highly reliable public cloud service in Australia, Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany based on its Global Cloud Platform strategy announced in 2010. In this way, local customers in regions throughout the world and global corporations with local operations are able to take advantage of On-Demand Virtual System Service or its equivalent via access to datacenters in each region.

The Global Cloud Platform delivers Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) - virtual information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure, such as servers and storage functionality - over a network from Fujitsu's datacenters. This provides resources that can be employed on-demand and tailor-made to customers' needs, without requiring advance configuration of ICT systems. By accessing Fujitsu's self-service portal, customers can quickly gain access to required ICT infrastructure through simple mouse-based operations.

Employing a cloud platform that brings together an array of Fujitsu Group technologies, this is the world's first Japan-originated public cloud service. Customers will be able to use this service in their global endeavors, strengthening governance through a shared ICT foundation and to use ICT to develop businesses in new fields. This is also relevant because customers need not worry about overcoming the differences in cloud services found in each particular region, but rather can concentrate on their core businesses. Moreover, customers in Japan and around the world will be able to select datacenters offered by cloud services in six countries, giving them the flexible options from the perspective of their business continuity plans.

In Japan, the new service, which had been offered as the On-Demand Virtual System Service, will now be known as "FGCP/S5." Globally, the service will be delivered under the name of Global Cloud Platform.

Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform

The Global Cloud Platform offers IaaS via a network from Fujitsu's datacenters to provide resources that can be employed on-demand and suited to customers' needs. The service ensures a high level of reliability that is sufficient for deployment in mission-critical systems.

By utilizing this service, customers can significantly reduce ICT system costs by avoiding the necessity of building their own systems when ICT infrastructure is only temporarily needed, or for business systems which entail wide fluctuations in capacity requirements. Customers need only to access Fujitsu's datacenters during periods when they actually require an ICT system.

In Japan, the service was launched under the name On-Demand Virtual System Service in October 2010, and since then has been employed by a significant number of customers. Now the service will be offered globally under the name of Global Cloud Platform via data centers in Japan, Australia, Singapore, the U.S., the U.K., and Germany.

Fujitsu is positioning this service as the linchpin public cloud platform in its cloud strategy. Fujitsu aims to deploy its diverse array of technologies and the wide range of services it has developed over the years in agriculture, healthcare and other new fields where the utilization of ICT systems has been limited, as well as in the development of smart grids and other social infrastructure. This in turn will allow new solutions that create opportunities in the application of ICT systems.
