Tokyo, Feb 4, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced the release in Japan of five new models of enterprise PCs in three product series', all equipped with the latest Windows 8.1 Pro operating system.
Enterprise tablets and laptop PCs being newly added to Fujitsu's product lineup are the FUJITSU PC LIFEBOOK T904/H, a convertible-type Ultrabook(TM) with a rotatable display that supports pen and touch input, as well as input with a keyboard. Three new models in the LIFEBOOK E series will replace the current models in the series. They share a similar design but have different screen sizes: the E754/H, with a 15.6" screen, the E744/H, with a 14" screen, and the E734/H, with a 13.3" screen.
Also added to the lineup is the FUJITSU PC ESPRIMO D552/H to the ESPRIMO line of enterprise desktop computers. It supports Windows 8.1 Pro and is equipped with the latest high-performance Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4130 processor.
Key Product Features
1. LIFEBOOK T904/H, the flexible and stylish Ultrabook(TM)
This convertible-type is a slim, lightweight Ultrabook(TM) with a 13.3" screen that has the high performance to serve as a user's primary office computer. With an ingenious hinge that lets the screen swivel in both directions and support for stylus input, it is ideally suited for a variety of situations, inside the office or on the go.
1) A convertible-type Ultrabook(TM) that can be used in a form best suited to the situation
A convertible design with a display that swivels in either direction enables users to choose the working style that best suits their application and circumstances. It functions as a conventional laptop with keyboard input for desk work, and can be used as a tablet with touch input for one-on-one presentations when visiting customers. The liquid-crystal display with a dual digitizer offers the benefits of precise handwriting recognition and multiple-touch. Also available is an intuitive finger touch input function, and a Wacom digitizer pen that can detect 1,024 gradations of pressure sensitivity equipped as standard, allowing input of detailed handwritten text and drawings just as writing on paper, without any erroneous input even if the user's palm comes into contact with the screen.
2) High-spec model equipped with exceptional performance
Equipped with the latest Windows 8.1 Pro OS and Intel(R) Core i5-4300U Processor, this computer also comes standard equipped with a hybrid hard disk drive (HDD) that combines a high-capacity HDD with flash memory. The hybrid HDD leverages the benefits of ample data storage capacity with high-speed processing and quick OS startup that flash memory enables. The 13.3" IGZO display offers ultra-sharp 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution so that finely written fonts are clear, with entire pages able to fit in a single screen without the need to scroll.
3) Solid construction and extensive security features
A compact chassis earns the LIFEBOOK T904/H Ultrabook(TM) status, and a torsion-resistant "ultra-compressed, solid core" construction gives it the ability to withstand a compression test of roughly 200 kgf across its surface(1) and drops of roughly 90 cm(2). A battery with roughly 12.5 hours of runtime(3) gives users the mobility to take it anywhere with confidence, and a fingerprint sensor, security chip, and smartcard slot equipped as standard, as well as an optional encrypted solid-state drive all support robust security on the go.
4) Slim and stylish new design
The model offers a beautiful view from any angle with "omni design," and demonstrates elegance by using metallic materials for the display's back cover and palm rest. It also combines style with functionality by using a "Shift Hinge(TM)(4)" structure, which reveals the volume button when in the tablet position.
2. New models in the LIFEBOOK E series of high-end laptops share common design
Three new models, each with a different screen size, have been added to the LIFEBOOK E series: the E754/H, with a 15.6" screen, the E744/H, with a 14" screen, and the E734/H, with a 13.3" screen.
All support the latest Windows 8.1 Pro OS and include an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4300M processor as standard.
1) Shared design
Apart from the different screen sizes, the new laptops share internal components, such as the motherboard and BIOS, and also optional external parts, such as port replicators, AC adapters, and optional function-specific bay devices(5). In offices with unassigned seating, shared accessories means that separate items need not be purchased for every computer, cutting down on ICT costs. As user manuals and other items can be shared, businesses have the flexibility to choose the right tool for the job without increasing administrative costs.
2) Slim and stylish
The three models use metallic materials for their displays' back covers and palm rests, making for a stylish and slim form factor that is ideal for carrying around inside or outside the office. Despite their slim 20-mm profile, they also incorporate multiple bays into the chassis. With an isolation keyboard and unique coloring for the sides of keyboard keys, together with a palm rest featuring a hairline finish, these laptops raise the bar for design. The side-colored keys are not merely a cosmetic detail. They actually aid in key recognition and improve usability.
3. ESPRIMO D series of desktops upgraded across the board with new OS, CPU
The ESPRIMO D series has as of January 16 gained a new addition in the ESPRIMO D552/H, which supports the latest Windows 8.1 Pro operating system, and is available in custom-made versions with the Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4130 processor, the latest high-performance CPU. In addition, models in the ESPRIMO D series(6) have been upgraded to support Windows 8.1 Pro, and are equipped with the new fourth-generation Intel(R) Core(TM) processors.
4. CLEARSURE 3G/LTE remote data deletion
The LIFEBOOK T904/H 3G/LTE model and the LIFEBOOK E734/H 3G/LTE model both support Fujitsu's CLEARSURE 3G/LTE(7)remote data-deletion service(8). If a computer has been lost or stolen, the data on it can be deleted or the computer can be locked, remotely, even if the computer is shut down. This helps companies avoid information leaks with a high degree of certainty. While reducing the risk of data leaks, this feature enables companies to make full use of the mobility of these computers to increase productivity and efficiency.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money.
