Fujitsu Aims for Fastest Growth in India’s HPC Market

Fujitsu CEMEA&I

New Delhi, September 04, 2014

News facts: 
 
  • Fujitsu outlines its strategy to lead India’s High-Performance Computing (HPC) market
  • Opening of a new Fujitsu HPC Competency Center in India - the first such center in India by a vendor
  • Appointment of Fujitsu SELECT Experts, the highest tier of Fujitsu’s partner program, for greater HPC market outreach and fulfilment

At the Fujitsu World Tour 2014 event in Delhi, Fujitsu today announces that it is implementing a strategy to double its revenues in the High Performance Computing (HPC) market segment in India. The company plans investments across customer services and engagement, partnerships and training, and will also open the Fujitsu HPC Competency Center in Bangalore – the first such center by a technology vendor in India, and Fujitsu’s fifth around the world. Fujitsu also announces that it is strengthening exclusive partnerships with members of the Fujitsu SELECT Partner program in India.

Fujitsu envisages that demand for HPC in India will stem from application areas such as advanced drug discovery, seismic engineering for oil exploration, automotive design, industrial manufacturing, aeronautical and defence research and design, mathematical modeling from scientists working on advanced theories, chemical and physical engineering formulation, advanced weather forecasting, and government-specific areas.

Fujitsu’s new HPC Competency Center in Bangalore is part of the company’s vision to expand the possibilities of HPC around the world, and in line with its aim to grow in the Indian market. The Fujitsu HPC Competency Center will allow scientists, analysts and engineers in India to leverage the power of HPC to solve complex science, engineering, and business problems using applications that require high bandwidth, low latency networking, and very high compute capabilities. By doing so, Fujitsu is enabling access to HPC infrastructure for the scientific and technical community as well as private and public organizations in India, that otherwise do not have the resources to build their own HPC infrastructure, or do not have the in-depth technical expertise to execute HPC models.

The investment made by Fujitsu in the new Fujitsu HPC Competency Center includes establishing a high-tech cluster consisting more than 750 cores of processing, along with storage and InfiniBand networks, and highly skilled technical talent in the area of HPC. The high-tech cluster is powered by the extreme reliability of proven Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers.

As part of its go-to-market strategy for HPC in India, Fujitsu has a clear tiered structure for its partners as part of its SELECT Partner Program. It has appointed SELECT Experts for HPC solutions in India, which is the highest level of the Fujitsu SELECT Partner program.

This announcement follows the introduction of the Fujitsu HPC Simplicity concept in India in 2013, which combines the Fujitsu Software HPC Cluster Suite (HCS), an immediately optimized x86 HPC cluster solution based on Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers, with a new graphical user interface-based front end.

The new Fujitsu HPC Competency Center in Bangalore will be open to customers and partners from November, 2014.
