Fujitsu today announced that, in the 9th Eco-Products Awards, it has received the Chairperson's Award, Eco-Products Awards Steering Committee, in the Eco-Services Category for its public cloud service, Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform/S5 (FGCP/S5). The Awards are sponsored by the Eco-Products Awards Steering Committee and supported by Japan's Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, and Ministry of the Environment. FGCP/S5 offers the same level of security and reliability as physical servers and is recognized for its ability to dramatically reduce energy consumption on a global scale.
The Eco-Products Awards were established in 2004 to promote the development and spread of eco-friendly products in Japan by honoring products and services (eco-products) that reduce the burden on the environment.
The FGCP/S5 service draws on the large-scale server and storage resources installed in Fujitsu datacenters to provide customers with their own dedicated virtual platform environment via a network connection. This enables them to use the resources they need right when they are needed.
The FGCP/S5 service involves virtual servers, and as such it offers customers the same level of security and reliability as dedicated physical servers. Since the expansion of the service to six locations around the world (Japan, Australia, Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany) in June 2011, it has made a significant contribution to reducing energy usage on a global basis, decreasing the volume of CO2 emissions by approximately thirty thousand tons per year, while also reducing the space required for ICT resources.
Fujitsu is the leading Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company offering a full range of technology products, solutions and services. Over 170,000 Fujitsu people support customers in more than 100 countries. We use our experience and the power of ICT to shape the future of society with our customers. Fujitsu Limited (TSE:6702) reported consolidated revenues of 4.5 trillion yen (US$54 billion) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. For more information, please see http://www.fujitsu.com.
