Comptel, an international software company specialising in telecommunications and ICT services supplier Fujitsu Services Oy signed an agreement in May on IT infrastructure availability services and data centre outsourcing service. The agreement spans three years with a two-year option.
Six employees transferred from Comptel to Fujitsu as of the beginning of June.
In accordance with the agreement, Comptel's international data centre operations will now be managed by Fujitsu. Comptel has operations in 18 countries with data centres primarily concentrated to Finland, Norway, UK, Brazil and Malaysia. The company has currently more than 400 servers.
The goal of the data centre project is to optimise Comptel's current server environment through consolidation, virtualisation and acquiring server capacity on demand as a service.
”Business critical applications must be up and running 24/7. We aim at adjusting our data centre operations to meet the requirements of Uptime Institute, whereby we are paying particular attention to information security, physical safety of our premises, data backups and server connectivity," says Markku Järvenpää, Senior Vice President for Global Operations Support in Comptel.
”We seek to build a strong, long-term partnership. We were looking for a global partner, capable of providing server space as capacity service. In addition to a competitive price, we also appreciate Fujitsu's ITIL-aligned operation and quality certificates. The fact that our partnership brings Fujitsu's extensive pool of specialists available to us, and the possibility to have additional services later on were important selection criteria for us. What's more, we wanted to offer our employees nice career opportunities going forward," Järvenpää says.
