Hybrid IT - Cloud
Cloud offers obvious agility, speed and cost efficiency advantages and has grown from an emerging trend to becoming part of the standard IT services delivery model for many organizations today.
However by blending the best of cloud powered and on premise IT, the balance that large organizations seek is the balance that Hybrid IT delivers. Fujitsu's Hybrid IT provides the perfect balance that is the foundation of our digital services, delivered in a range of styles to meet customers' needs for security, data regulation and business agility.
Hybrid IT improves business productivity in some obvious ways e.g. enhancing business user mobility by making applications and information available across time, space and devices. But there are other ways in which productivity improves as well. For example, creating an optimal balance between empowering end users to order and manage their own portfolio of IT services whilst retaining sufficient operational and governance control.
Our approach to delivering Hybrid IT service further drives productivity gains by providing management of multiple cloud services, contracts and relationships. A simplified standard contract allows organizations access to multiple cloud platforms through a single document. Our ability to provide end to end managed networks and high performance connectivity further frees up the customer's internal IT organization to focus on business innovation, not on managing IT complexity.
Technology and Services Enabling Hybrid IT
As a core element of Fujitsu's MetaArc , the FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 enables Hybrid IT . K5 is the world's largest Open-Stack based cloud platform, and open technology allows K5 to connect easily with other clouds. To meet the varied cloud needs of customers, K5 and Fujitsu's private cloud infrastructure PRIMEFLEX apply unified architecture to offer the full range of cloud options from on-premise private cloud to public cloud.
In addition to Infrastructure as a Service, K5 provides various Platform as a Service offerings. For example, the Platform Service modernizes and transforms legacy applications to more flexibly and resiliently support the migration to cloud of mission critical systems. The Application Service based on the Cloud Foundry allows customer to develop applications, which can then be published via the API Management Service. K5 is a key enabler of Connected Services. On top of K5 , many services are developed and connected, enabling new value to be created. Using Fujitsu data centers and global delivery centers worldwide, K5 delivers IaaS and PaaS Services consistently across the globe.
Hybrid IT combines a range of public clouds with on-premise systems. Therefore, it is important to safely, optimally and flexibly connect the public cloud, on-premise systems and devices, via the internet and mobile networks. Networks play a very important role in achieving this. Fujitsu provides a range of network products and services, which enables the rapid establishment of the appropriate network architecture for the server virtualization environment, and that can flexibly responds to the requirements of systems development activities and modifications.

Hybrid IT Transformation service
Fujitsu Hybrid IT Transformation services enable organizations to transform their traditional data center based IT systems into a more efficient and agile hybrid environment.
This service enables detailed analysis and planning that a client will need to transform traditional DC based IT into a Hybrid IT model, delivering a definitive list of DC assets to consider, a projection of the future provisioning environment, a transformation plan, and (if requested) an ROI.
Typical target clients will be considering whether or how to consolidate or rationalize DCs, they would need their IT to be more agile so that they can accommodate mergers, acquisitions or divestitures, in addition, they would want their IT to become more responsive so that they can speed up their time to market; many would want to combat Shadow IT, or be interested in moving to OPEX based IT operations to simplify their internal billing.
Our Hybrid IT Transformation – Implement service takes the output of the assessment and planning, provided by the Hybrid IT Transformation – Blueprint service, and uses this information to execute a risk-managed transformation of your client's DC environment into a mix of public cloud, private cloud or optimized hosting. We take full end-to end responsibility for migrating the targeted workloads and ensure that end-to-end business systems remain running with the minimum interruptions whilst the migration is on-going. We are also able to decommission the source systems once the migration of the workloads and the go-live is complete.
