Fujitsu, NetApp to provide integrated storage and data management offerings

Plans to offer consulting, professional, maintenance and managed storage services

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu and NetApp have announced their intention to deepen their partnership to provide integrated and automated storage and data management offerings. The companies intend to jointly develop integrated products and services specifically in the areas of virtualisation, storage and data management, and storage services and offerings.

Reportedly, the companies are working on integration of NetApp’s storage management software into Fujitsu’s resource management framework. The framework orchestrates servers, networks, storage and software into logical system platforms to run applications on demand. It also enables administration of data centre environments and allows single console management of the entire infrastructure.

The companies have also announced the full integration of NetApp V-series with Fujitsu ETERNUS. This joint offering is expected to provide customers with management and efficiency benefits and increased functionality. It enables customers to preserve their current investments with virtually no disruption to their operations.

In addition, the companies also plan to develop and offer a joint portfolio of services including consulting, professional services, managed storage services and maintenance services. To deliver this service portfolio, the companies will leverage from a team of NetApp and Fujitsu certified storage professionals and global service delivery capabilities for dynamic infrastructures.

Kai Flore, president and CEO of Fujitsu Technology Solutions, said: We introduced our dynamic infrastructures portfolio a year ago as the cornerstone of Fujitsu’s global IT portfolio. NetApp’s strengths in unified storage align perfectly with our high-quality, high-performance and highly reliable ETERNUS SAN and storage software, creating a joint comprehensive storage portfolio to meet customers’ every need.
