Fujitsu Enhances Cloud Services Portfolio to Support the Digital Transformation of Customer Businesses
Bolsters support for hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments

TOKYO, June 22, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announces enhancements to its existing portfolio of cloud services. Under these service enhancements, Fujitsu will offer cloud services with strengthened functionality to promote migration of mission critical systems to the multi-cloud, and will realize the hybrid IT environments needed by customer businesses. Moreover, Fujitsu will also expand its collaborations with top-tier cloud vendors, and will strengthen its multi-cloud services to provide integration and operation of multiple cloud services, offering rapid build out and high quality operations of diverse ICT environments. This will enable Fujitsu to provide cloud services tailor-made to the business of respective customers, and offer robust support for their digital transformation.

Background

Digital transformation, with AI, IoT, Analytics and other technologies, has in recent years moved at dramatic speed. Amidst this, there is a rising trend toward building hybrid IT systems that realize streamlined operations by combining cloud and on-premises mission critical systems migrated to the cloud. It has also become possible to flexibly choose an ICT environment suited to a customer's business, such as with multi-cloud landscapes that combine an array of cloud services. At the same time, challenges have arisen as a result of the need to modify existing applications associated with migrating mission critical systems to the cloud, as well as the increasing complexity of management operations due to the use of different cloud services for various processes, leading to a heavier cloud management burden.

Enhanced Functionality to Promote Migration of Mission Critical Systems to the Cloud

Based on Fujitsu's proven track record in operating cloud platform-based systems for over 10 years, both its own and for customers, from June 29, 2018 it will steadily roll out and start to provide cloud services with strengthened functionality for the migration of mission critical systems to the cloud, so as to provide hybrid IT environments suited to customers' businesses. Being first made available in Japan, the newly offered bare metal server service, which simplifies the deployment of physical servers from a customer's portal site, enables customers to deploy OS and applications suited to their existing on-premises environments. This will minimize the need to modify applications and make changes to operational processes, simplifying migration of existing systems to the cloud. Furthermore, the addition of disaster recovery and other functions to minimize system downtime in emergencies and elevate business continuity boosts cloud platform reliability to a level on par with on-premises environments, with Fujitsu providing cloud services suited to the phased migration of mission critical systems in hybrid IT environments.

Expanded Lineup of Multi-Cloud Services

Fujitsu is enhancing its integration and operations services that deploy hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments, leveraging its long-accumulated system integration know-how and experience with the latest cloud services. Fujitsu will provide rapid deployment and high-quality operations for diverse hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments through the use of technology that automates infrastructure setup for multi-cloud systems and that provides unified management of multi-cloud environments. Fujitsu will roll out the services enhanced with this technology from October 1, 2018.

Expanded Collaboration with Cloud Vendor Partners

Fujitsu is strengthening and expanding its collaboration with partners globally, particularly focusing on major cloud vendors and contributing to the digital transformation of customers. By developing and delivering high value-added services that combine Azure services from Microsoft, especially SAP on Azure, with Fujitsu's system engineer insights, Fujitsu is providing cloud migration that meets operational requirements and facilitates the growth of customer businesses. Fujitsu is also collaborating with VMware, Inc. to develop and provide services based on VMware's private and public cloud services, specifically VMware Cloud Foundation and Hybrid Cloud Extension. Moreover, Fujitsu is also endeavoring to build solutions utilizing VMware's network virtualization technology, including VMware NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud.

Strengthened Cloud Service Promotion Structure

By conducting training for approximately 10,000 employees engaged in cloud-related businesses globally on cloud-related services provided by partners, Fujitsu is substantially increasing the number of personnel who support the building and operation of hybrid IT and multi-cloud systems to suit its customers' business requirements. Fujitsu is simplifying its cloud service portfolio with "Fujitsu Cloud Service for OSS", "Fujitsu Cloud Service for Microsoft Azure", and "Fujitsu Cloud Service for VMware" and will continue to expand its lineup going forward.
