Fujitsu and NetApp Support Compliance Requirements with Private Storage for Public Cloud Customers
- Fujitsu integrates dedicated NetApp storage systems within its Hybrid Storage solution, deployed in the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 data centers, to provide private storage for public and virtual private cloud customers
- Data from multiple public clouds can now be stored privately and within geographic boundaries – a key step towards compliance with regulatory requirements such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Provides visibility and insight, access and control, protection and security over entire cloud-based estates
Effective data governance and protection in multi-cloud environments
By consolidating multi-cloud data to a single, private Hybrid Storage system within a Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 data center, customers can better ensure effective data governance and protection. Furthermore, the catalog manager in Fujitsu’s Cloud Service Manager makes it easy to control and manage these multi-cloud environments – as well as hybrid IT infrastructures, where organizations are operating a mixture of on-premises and cloud-based systems.
Conway Kosi, SVP and Head of Managed Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu EMEIA, comments: “A recent study
we undertook showed that business leaders are very concerned about compliance – in fact 59 percent see it as their greatest concern. The penalties of failure are high, but the ever-growing complexity of enterprises’ hybrid IT environments makes keeping on top of data management challenging. We are teaming up with NetApp to tame the data compliance beast – providing a single view and control of where data is located, its movement, and of who has access.”
This latest enhancement to the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 extends the NetApp Data Fabric to customers – providing them with visibility and insight, access and control, protection and security over their entire estate of cloud-based data, regardless of its origin – as well as providing a common language, uniform control mechanism and harmonized view.
“Data is the lifeblood of transforming businesses, and, in a world where organizations must manage larger volumes of diverse, dynamic, distributed data, the NetApp Data Fabric offers a significant, competitive advantage,” said Anthony Lye, senior vice president, Cloud Business Unit, NetApp. “The combination of NetApp Private Storage with Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 helps customers unleash the power of data to capitalize on opportunities in the digitally transformed world.”

The private storage option is available immediately in the EMEIA region for K5 customers. Pricing varies according to usage and capacity.
