Fujitsu Cuts Ownership Costs and Reduces Risk for Private Clouds

Private Cloud Deployment Accelerated by Preconfigured Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/18/11 -- Fujitsu today provides enterprises with a fast track to the private cloud, introducing its first completely preconfigured datacenter environment. Organizations planning to implement a private cloud are assured of reduced risk and lower total cost of ownership, thanks to the powerful combination of the Fujitsu Dynamic Infrastructures portfolio with Microsoft(R) Windows Server(R) Hyper-V(TM) and System Center.

Based on the recently agreed-upon reference architecture between Fujitsu and Microsoft for the Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track program, Fujitsu is providing enterprises with ready-to-run, automated and pre-tested private cloud environments. Fujitsu delivers the private cloud from a single, certified source, integrating all hardware and software including Fujitsu PRIMERGY(R) servers, Fujitsu ETERNUS(R) storage, Fujitsu networking technology, Fujitsu ServerView Resource Orchestrator software and Microsoft System Center software.

Private clouds are becoming established as the most trusted way for enterprises to accelerate their business velocity. Sharing IT resources such as hardware and software across entire organizations delivers flexibility, lowers operating costs and reduces risk.

The Fujitsu Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track reference architectures enable businesses to accelerate the deployment of private cloud solutions. Enterprises choosing Fujitsu to design and implement their private clouds can benefit from the global organization's deep expertise in providing both Dynamic Cloud Services and Dynamic Cloud Infrastructures.

Thanks to an established services network, Fujitsu offers customers complete support through all steps of the private cloud transformation process -- from planning through to final go-live phase. Furthermore, Fujitsu Private Cloud customers who are concerned about reaching possible headroom limitations can benefit from seamless, secure extended access to the Fujitsu trusted cloud offerings.

Says Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President Datacenter Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions: "We believe that IT should play a supporting role in an organization, rather than being the focal point. By creating Dynamic Infrastructures that offer rapid, seamless flexibility, enterprises are assured that their IT systems will always be able to cope with changing business needs. We are now making sure that this approach is available to private cloud customers."

According to Mike Schutz, senior director, Windows Server, Microsoft Corp: "The Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track program was designed to help simplify the deployment and operation of private clouds. We are delighted to have Fujitsu, as one of the initial launch partners, deliver its Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track-based offerings to the market worldwide. Customers tell us that they are eager to implement private cloud solutions, and Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track built upon Windows Server 2008 R2 and Microsoft System Center helps them do so confidently and quickly."
