Fujitsu’s comprehensive portfolio of course includes Microsoft’s server virtualization Hyper-V from the very start. Hyper-V as part of the Windows Server operating system is directly released for all existing and upcoming Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers as soon as they become generally available.
Microsoft’s cost-effective server virtualization provides maximum flexibility, easy management and built-in high availability mechanisms to let you benefit from all the advantages of using server virtualization. These advantages are even enhanced with Fujitsu products, services and solutions.
Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY servers and Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS are the ideal platform to run Microsoft Hyper-V. Additionally, the management of our Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY, Fujitsu ServerView Suite, and the management of Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS, Fujitsu ETERNUS SF, are fully integrated into Microsoft’s System Center. This results in a uniform management experience for your entire IT infrastructure.
Moreover, in cooperation with Microsoft we have integrated Microsoft Hyper-V into our in-house developed solutions like Fujitsu Cluster-in-a-box which offers continuous availability at reasonable costs to protect important data and business-critical services.
Our close cooperation with Microsoft in the area of server virtualization was also the reason that Fujitsu joined Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track program directly upon its announcement in 2010. Our contribution, beside our honored entry solution Fujitsu Cluster-in-a-box, we provide entire private cloud solutions according to the definitions of the program. In addition to the complete Microsoft software stack, our entire private cloud solutions include Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY, Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS, Fujitsu network components and all further infrastructure components, such as Fujitsu PRIMECENTER rack(s) and cabling. Optionally, everything is completely pre-installed and includes the entire lifecycle management of the complete solution.
