Fujitsu said that it is launching cloud based infrastructure service designed for organisations in the UK and Ireland. The new Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) completes four layers of the company’s infrastructures portfolio.
The company claims that customers will no longer need to buy servers, software, data centre space or network equipment resources as a service charged on a pay per use basis. The new service has been designed for medium and large enterprises to drive out costs from the IT infrastructure. It is achieved by reducing the need for capital expenditure and reducing operational costs by up to 40%.
According to Fujitsu, with the service customers have many options that combine the company’s Eternus storage and Primergy server technologies, together with products from Cisco, EMC and VMware.
IaaS includes elements such as resilient up to 99.99%, secure infrastructure in UK data centres, and scalable IT, up and down, Fujitsu said.
Fujitsu’s Dynamic Infrastructures approach provides a range of options for an IT service delivery model to suit individual customer requirements, ranging from models for organisations that want to own and operate their own hardware and software, through managed services, where Fujitsu takes over on-premise systems management.
Darren Ratcliffe, chief architect for IaaS at Fujitsu UK and Ireland, said: As the cloud model continues to disrupt traditional IT thinking and is hyped in all corners we are in danger of it becoming ever more intangible – a huge factor in CIOs still being reluctant to take on what is often quite a nebulous proposition.
We believe the powerful and experienced combination of Fujitsu, Cisco, EMC and VMware means there is now a clear business reason to take advantage of the benefits of a cloud model.
